10 reasons to see a naturopath


  1. Getting to the root cause. We ask questions to identify the root cause of your problem. If this is addressed early, all symptoms coming from this cause are improved.  If we don't address the root cause you can potentially get more symptoms in the future as well as the ones you currently have now. Which leads in nicely to the second good reason to see a naturopath...
  2. Resolution, not masking symptoms. Addressing the cause means we don't just mask the symptoms with a drug with side effects, that you may or may not have to be on for life. There is more chance for long-term health benefits when you address your health issues this way.
  3. A holistic approach. As the body’s systems are connected and we can’t comprehensively consider one without the other. Addressing symptoms from every angle not only has the potential to bring about a speedy recovery and a return to well-being, but also to prevent these health concerns from recurring. Given the right nutrients and support, the body can correct itself and lead you into a place of health and vitality.
  4. "There's a drug for that"... is not our approach! While pharmaceutical medicines most definitely have their place, your symptoms are not a drug deficiency, so we don't treat them as such. 
  5. Functional tests. Naturopaths have access to and are well educated in many functional tests that show us how your body is functioning. We use these to look at your hormones, your neurotransmitters, your energy-making ability, your toxic load, your ability to detox and your gut microbiome. There's a test for almost anything we need to know.
  6. Options for treatment. Naturopaths know which other natural treatments can help you to enhance your treatment. Things such acupuncture, homeopathy, osteopathy, lymphatic drainage and massage.
  7. Time. Our appointments are not rushed and we're able to spend a lot of time with you to gather all the information we need. You feel heard, understood and like you will finally get the answers you've been looking for.
  8. Hope. Often once we leave the doctor's office with a prescription we may feel that that is our lot in life, to just put up with what we have and that there is no chance of a life without our health problem. Because naturopaths find the root cause and have access to so many functional tests – you leave feeling hopeful that this can change for you.
  9. Long-term benefits. Get to the bottom of things now and reap the rewards for the rest of your life.
  10. Technology means you don't always need to come in, we can do an online or over-the-phone consult with you from the comfort of your lounge. Nice!
