What is a naturopath?
A naturopath is a health practitioner that uses holistic principles of healing to bring the body back into balance. Naturopaths acknowledge that no two people are the same, this is reflected in the way that treatment is unique and individualised.
A naturopath uses personalised dietary plans, nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine and lifestyle modifications to bring about healing. Naturopaths aim at treating the root cause of disease in the body for long term optimal wellbeing, rather than just covering up the symptoms for a quick fix.
What does a consultation involve?
An initial consultation goes for approximately 1.5 hours, in which Lucy will ask questions about your symptoms, health/medical history, emotional wellbeing, diet, sleep and lifestyle. This is to gather as much information as possible to uncover what is occuring at an emotional, physical, and biochemical level in your body. Lucy will then formulate an individualised treatment plan to achieve your health goals. The treatment plan includes- personalised dietary advice, recommended supplementation/herbal medicines, lifestyle changes and referrals for functional pathology testing (if deemed necessary).
Follow-up appointments expand on the initial consultation and review your progress and results. Adjustments to your treatment plan will be made depending on your response to the initial treatment plan.
How do I prepare for a consultation?
After booking your appointment you will receive an email with a link to an intake form. Please fill this out in as much detail as possible. Please send through any recent pathology test results prior to your consultation.
