Holistic assessment

Your naturopath will want to know about your diet, lifestyle, family background & environment, as well as the history of your illness or complaint. This range of information is important to the practitioner, who seeks to discover the cause of the illness & treat you as a whole person, rather than target the symptoms alone.

As well as taking a comprehensive health history, the naturopath might employ other assessment techniques, such as:

A range of non-invasive treatments

The naturopath employs a range of non-invasive techniques and these include (but are not limited to)

Physical therapies
