Naturopathic health care covers all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatrics.
is a practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human mind and body. By integrating conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies and traditional medicines, naturopathy treats the patient's mental, emotional and physical states for a lasting effect.
The foundation of naturopathy is the philosophy of the "healing power of nature". This means that the body has its own healing energy within and with the help of naturopathic treatment; the body can repair itself and recover from illness if it is in a healthy and supportive environment.
Naturopathy is a system of healing that aims to provide holistic or whole body healthcare. It focuses on treating the cause of a disease rather than just the symptoms themselves.
Naturopaths see the symptoms of a disease as the body's defence mechanism attempting to move the person back to a state of health. Polly will work with this process rather than just suppressing the symptoms.
Polly will design a treatment path that meets your body's needs. She may at first advise you on how to remove the underlying causes of the stress that is causing problems in the body. This could involve recommending dietary changes, and encouraging ways of achieving a deeper level of relaxation.
Polly may then suggest ways to nourish and cleanse the body, by suggesting dietary changes that might involve avoiding certain foods, eating certain foods, taking various vitamin, mineral or food supplements, or drinking fruit and vegetable juices.
Ridding the body of accumulated toxins and excess stress is often the first step to returning to natural good health.
