Remède’s naturopathic medicine practitioners are all highly qualified, experienced and professional practitioners who are committed to merging the best scientific evidence available together with a natural approach to healthcare.
What Is Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine is a complete and holistic approach to individualised healthcare that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of illness and health issues. It combines the science of disease diagnosis with a treatment approach that uses effective medical-grade natural medicines and non-invasive treatments to enhance the body’s natural healing response and to restore healthy function and vitality.
In addition to taking the time to take a thorough case history, our naturopaths are specifically skilled to fully assess your health status by drawing on a number of specialist testing + assessments to find the underlying cause of your health problems. Our naturopaths not only look at family and personal history, but also lifestyle factors like quality of sleep, diet, stress levels, toxic exposures, hormonal influences, hydration levels, bowel health and other contributing factors that may be affecting your health.
Once the cause of your health issues have been identified by your Remède naturopath, an individualised treatment program will be formulated for you, which may include herbal medicine, nutraceuticals, nutritional therapy or homeopathic medicine, in addition to effective dietary programs and lifestyle prescriptions to complement effective treatment.
Naturopathic medicine also focuses on taking a preventative and proactive approach to your health. Your naturopath can help you to identify potential future health issues based on your genetics (DNA), functional testing and past medical history, from which a preventative health plan can be developed to help you to take control of your own long-term wellness.
