Millions of people have found naturopathy and acupuncture to offer a better solution than drugs or surgery.

Naturopathy involves the assessment of your underlying conditions and seeks to treat the whole person – not just the presenting symptom, and looks for causes rather than just managing the effect of unwellness.
Naturopathy uses a holistic approach, focuses on preventive care, helping you maintain optimum wellness.
At your initial consultation, our naturopath conducts thorough assessments which may include cardiac risk assessment, western iridology, and TCM tongue diagnosis and develops personal plans and programs in consultation with you based on your capacity and needs. Associated with a naturopathic consultation is a full review of any medications you may be on, as the choices of complementary medicines, including herbs, minerals, and dietary adjustments may be affected by medication, or affect the medication itself.
Acupuncture is a method of treatment with its Chinese history going back thousands of years. With a 3,000 year history, acupuncture successfully addresses chronic ailments and manages pain. The acupuncturist will use very fine needles in channels known as meridians, to open energy flows, in turn relaxing and re-toning muscles, bringing relief to aches and pains, tensions, and helping the bodies own healing processes. Electro-stimulation of needles may be used, or 'dry needling' may be the choice.

General urine biochemistry; General urine heavy metal test; Free radical urine analysis; Urinary Indicand
Urine provides valuable information about your body's biochemistry, and can also be used to measure heavy metal toxicity, free radical activity and by the urinary indicand test we are able to monitor intestinal health. Urine is filtered blood, and is not simply excreted waste. It is a significant marker of physiological wee-being, and when used in conjunction with live blood analysis can be useful in monitoring organ health, hydration adequacy, and infection.
Blood glucose level (non fasting); cholesterol; triglycerides; uric acid; blood groups

Involves external laboratory analysis of specimens of urine and saliva, and occasionally blood, to monitor the efficiency of a part with regard to its function. Conventional pathology looks at measuring levels of disease. Functional pathology is disease aware, but takes the approach of 'prevention being better than cure'.
Hair mineral analysis
This analytical method can be used to determine the levels of minerals in the hair. Hair is formed from the clusters of specialised cells that make up the hair follicle. During the growth phase, the hair is exposed to internal environment such as blood, lymph and extracellular fluids, locking in the accumulated metabolic products. This biological process provides a blueprint and lasting record of mineral status and nutritional metabolic activity that has occurred during this time.
Allergy test for airbourne/food sensitivity
Using hair analysis for testing of airborne and food sensitivity
Diet and Nutrition plans and advice
One man's food is another man's poison is true. Your blood is affected by lectins in food, the degree of affect is determined by your blood group. Medically lectins are known as hemo-agglutinins, which means that some foods may cause blood to become 'sludgy', which can lead to clot formations. Understanding your blood group also allows the naturopath to determine beneficial foods for you, and advise which foods to minimise.
Diet and nutritional advice is also of benefit for children diagnosed with ADHD, or similar behavioural disturbances, for those undertaking heavy manual labour, pregnant women, or those convalescing after illness or surgery.
Detoxification and Wellness programs
allow you to remove accumulated wastes, restore efficient function and release toxins from the body. using gentle, natural medicines to take wastes from the bloodstream and eliminate them via the bowel and kidney. This process usually takes 6 weeks, but in some cases longer detoxification phases may be required.
