What can I expect from the consultation?
The consultation begins with a very in depth, detailed, case history to establish what has brought the client to their current presenting condition. The client really does have a chance to download what’s been troubling them. Once this has been established Irene will utilise this information to build the client a personalised or tailored, unique, Nutritional Health Plan based on the information given and will address any nutritional deficiencies and recommending homeopathic, herbal, vitamin & mineral supplements if required
How long will it take for me to receive my plan?
As these plans can be quite in depth and are written individually by Irene they can take a week to reach the client
Some More Information on Naturopathy …….
Naturopathic Nutrition, also known as naturopathy, is a natural and comprehensive approach to improving health. Naturopathic Nutrition seeks to stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Naturopaths seek to see their patients as a whole person. Not just physical symptoms, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions are taken into account before the practitioner comes up with a tailored health plan. Naturopathic Nutritionists spend a great deal of time getting to know all about their patients so they can prescribe the most effective changes needed to help remedy health conditions. Homeopathy, herbs, vitamins, minerals and techniques may be recommended to some clients.
Modern vs. Traditional Medicine
Nowadays, modern medicine has the answers when it comes to detecting and treating a large number of different types of medical conditions, especially the ones triggered by bacteria, viruses and other sorts of infectious agents. This was not always the case, as people used to die from diseases which are now curable. Those include whooping cough, diphtheria and smallpox, among others. Many traditional medicine methods have been around since the beginning of time. Ancient practices viewed the body as a whole and to this day can be an excellent adjunct to compliment the patients main health care plan
The most important difference between the modern and the traditional medicine is the way they observe both the health and the diseases. Diseases are biological conditions which are characterized as abnormalities in the function or the structure of certain organs or entire organ systems. Illnesses involve certain spiritual, psychological and social aspects of an affected person. Modern medicine usually tends to ignore these aspects of a person and that is why most traditional medicine practitioners believe that the art of healing has been lost over the course of the last 100 years. This sort of dissatisfaction has led to a significant increase in the number of people who are now relying on traditional medicine in order to get rid of their medical problems. All of this occurs in spite of the fact that there is limited scientific evidence showing that traditional methods of treatment may provide patients with a satisfying outcome.
