What is Naturopathy and what do naturopaths do?

Naturopaths can help to unravel the cause of people’s health concerns, and to spend time understanding you as an individual.

Your naturopathic treatment may involve the use of herbs, food as medicine, lifestyle advice, and nutritional medicine. Gabriella believes that for true healing to occur, we need to delve deep to discover the cause of the concern. This allows the health of the whole person to be managed, rather than just the symptoms of the presenting condition.

If you wish to discover the cause of your health concern, and want work towards managing your health in a patient and balanced way, then naturopathy is for you.It is not a quick fix approach to health, so if you are after a fast and furious way to manage your health, then naturopathy is most likely not for you.

Gabriella also encourages people to spend time in nature, which she believes is vital in bringing about balance and in helping people to feel more energised.

Follow-up consultation:

The first follow-up consultation is normally scheduled around 2 weeks after the initial, and is 45 minutes long. (Price $115)
