Does naturopathy work? There is no straight yes or no answer to this question. Naturopathy has worked for many people but not all. Naturopathy is not necessarily medicine, in the way that we are taught to think and conceptualize medicine, however some may argue this point. The aim of naturopathy is to adjust as best as possible, given your particular life circumstances, using the best of non-pharmacological approaches to healing. Given that your body has a natural state, or a natural illness, a naturopath will work with you to best use the tools available. Some people need very little tools, while others needs more tools. There is no 'ideal' in naturopathy, as lovely as that would seem. There is largely a holistic approach, meaning that an individual part tends to recover keeping in mind the entire organism. Therefore, understanding these principles, individuals can reduce risk of further complications down the road. I often hear the common saying 'I am never well since...' We explore together where your body led astray. We identify what are the likeliest contributors, remove what is an obstacle, and then find a balanced approach.
I offer individual consults and packages. Individual consults are for those looking for a naturopath as part of their support team. I offer packages for individuals looking to establish a particular change in lifestyle. Examples include a 3 visit package for sleep health, 6 visit package for weight loss, and an 8 visit package for emotional health and coaching.
