Why see a naturopath?

Why see a naturopath?

I’m a naturopath and recently I booked in to see a colleague of mine for some help. It’s coming towards the end of the year and I’ve been reflecting on the way my health has been going. I have had many changes in my life in the last 18 months- moving house, changing my structure at work and changing my routine at home. With that, my health routine has fallen a little by the way-side as well.

You see, it’s not always what you know, it’s about HOW you do it! For example I know that I want to eat fresh, organic food, but when I moved house it became difficult to get to the organic fruit and veggie store, so some weeks go by when I miss getting there.

Seeing my naturopath, has helped me to get back to track. Sometimes with all of the “what’s” that I know, I’m unsure of where to start. I often see people coming into the clinic, having Dr. Googled, knowing “what” they need to know, but not knowing where to start. Having someone on the outside tell me “these are the most important things to start with” and holding me accountable, is the shift that I have needed to help get me back to track.

By making a start, everything else to fall into place more easily.

People see a Naturopath for different reasons and there is no right or wrong reason to see a naturopath. These are the 3 top reasons why someone sees a naturopath.

1). You have a condition or some symptoms which you are looking for the approach of helping your body to heal itself.

By taking the right nutrients, herbal medicine and making lifestyle and dietary changes, in many cases, your body can heal. If you are looking to help heal your body, then seeing a naturopath can help point you in the right direction.

2). You’re not feeling like yourself, but all your blood tests came back as normal.

When this is the case, a naturopath can often see things from a different angle. By using different diagnostic skills or testing, your naturopath may be able to help you start to feel like yourself again.

3). You want to get to a better level of health.

If you are feeling like you are on the downhill slide (like I was) and need to get back to a better level of health, seeing a naturopath can help you get there quickly. A naturopath can point out the most important things to address so that you get to a better level easily and quickly.

I am pleased to say that I am getting back on track, because I do want a good level of health. I do want to have the energy and vitality each day and I do want to be healthy as I get older.

So if you want to jump into 2017 with a head start on your health, why not give us a call on 1300 21 44 25 or a free 10 min phone chat or to book a consultation.
