  • What is Naturopathy?

    The main focus of Naturopathy is to provide your body with what it needs to heal itself. Naturopathy is used to treat a variety of both acute and chronic conditions.

    When you see a Naturopath they will look at your presenting symptoms, but also test for underlying cause to your symptoms. Having these underlying causes treated and not just the symptoms will improve how quickly and how effective your treatment is.

    Naturopathic medicine works by using effective herbal liquids or dried herbs. This form of treatment can be used as an alternative to current medicine or alongside conventional allopathic or western Medicine. Diet and Lifestyle factors are also examined as these can hinder your body from expressing your full state of health if unbalanced.

    At Better Backs we hold firmly that given the right circumstances the body can heal itself. The importance of diet and lifestyle factors that can be changed or adapted to minimize symptoms and rebalance the bodies systems are assessed during a naturopathic consultation.

    Educating you and your family is also another area of great importance to us; as a patient you need to take an interest in your own health and wellness goals. We will be there to help you achieve these. At Better Backs every patient has their own tailor made treatment plan designed specifically for their presenting condition.
