By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, our goal is to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopath’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a balanced internal and external environment.
If you have illness or disease, you’re out of balance. We teach you the tools to bring balance back.
As a naturopath, I will take time with you. During your first appointment, we will take your health history, find out about your diet, stress levels, use of tobacco and alcohol, and discuss why you’re here. At some point, we may palpate to identify energy deficiencies. I may also use nutritional lab tests to fully understand your body’s needs.
This is how we will work with you to set up a customized protocol for health support strategy:
A first visit with a patient may last 90 minutes and follow-up visits range from 30 to 60 minutes, although this varies. Naturopaths need sufficient time to ask questions and understand the individual’s needs as well as their goals. Therefore, we take time to gather information, do an appropriate nutritional examination and teach you about managing your condition and improving your health.
Homeopathic treatment seeks to mobilize the innate healing powers of the individual so that all functional systems work at their best, and the body’s innate therapeutic powers are put to full use. We take into consideration all symptoms to find the mixture that would produce the most similar symptom picture. This is done by stimulating the body to eliminate the underlying cause of the toxic response.
Homeopathic dilutions may be so high as to have no trace of the original molecular substance. It is the signal rather than the substance that has the healing effect; the weakest dilutions are considered to be the most potent, working at cellular and subcellular levels in the body to stimulate its immune system and other natural defenses.
- Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring about health and well being.
- You are supported as an individual, not as a collection of symptom labels.
- Homeopathy treats all your symptoms at all levels of your being – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical and finds the ‘like cures like’ match for them.
- Homeopathically prepared remedies, providing the minimum dose, are gentle, subtle and powerful. They are non-addictive, and not tested on animals.
The body has an energy system that follows pathways referred to as meridians. These meridians interact with a number of more concentrated energy centers called chakras, as well as with perceptible energy fields around the body. If energy saturates every cubic centimeter of space throughout the universe, as physicists inform us, then the meridians are part and parcel of our connection with each other, as well as to everything else.
Our cells, tissues and organs vibrate with energy.
When we are healthy each cell in every part of our body is vibrating at its optimum frequency. Equally each organ is also operating at a particular frequency and so on throughout the body. However when sickness sets in a particular area of the body, the cells are no longer working and vibrating at their normal frequency and so the body may experience illness.
Bio Energy healing as a therapy is founded on re-balancing the body’s energy field. The human body consists of bone and tissue with billions of cells making up our organs, skeletal system and body parts. We also have a field of energy pulsing not only through our nervous system but throughout every cell that forms our overall organism.
A Bio Energy therapist or practitioner learns techniques which are used to tune in with and balance this energy field, supports unblocking any blockages which may be causing imbalances, and helps boost the immune system. The practitioner acts as a channel or conduit for universal energy. This universal energy field contains all the information required to bring about the necessary conditions for the client’s own natural healing abilities to kick into action.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in an individual’s overall wellbeing.
In a typical one hour session, the individual lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the head, torso, knees, and feet. This light contact consists of gentle finger pressure, with no bone manipulation or forceful thrusts such as those used in chiropractic work, bone-setting, or osteopathy.
The goal of craniosacral therapy is to help get rid of restrictions in the system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, which in turn, helps the individual to relax and eventually restore their overall balance.
