Naturopathy as an alternative medicine has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more people are finding that conventional medicine alone is not sufficient to produce beneficial results long term.
Taking a natural approach to your health is far more preferable for your overall wellbeing. A Naturopath, similar to a GP, will not only take time to detail your medical history and perform diagnosis with tests, but will also have an additional perspective to treating the condition in relation to your individual body.
Holistic & Natural Focus
Naturopathy is a holistic form of health care with a focus on treating the individual as a whole. Treatment aims include:
- Boosting the body’s natural healing potential
- Restoring harmony
- Preventing disease
while supporting the body, mind and emotions throughout the healing process.
Who should see a Naturopath?
As naturopathy also focuses on prevention – you do not need to be unwell to see a Naturopath. We recommend that you make an appointment with your Naturopath regularly to maintain wellbeing and as the saying goes, ‘prevent is better than cure’.
Naturopathy is used to treat a wide range of health conditions and is suitable for all ages. Here at the Empowering Wellness Centre, our naturopathy service can provide support and treat a wide range of health conditions including:

What can you expect with the Naturopath?
Your naturopath will assess your current health condition and identify any underlying causes if you are suffering from health conditions. From there you will receive specific treatment or illness prevention recommendations such as herbals, nutrition, supplements, essences, massage or chiropractic care, while integrating with orthodox medicine to assist with your overall wellbeing.
Here at Empowering Wellness, we also offer HeartMath bio-feedback technology, a science-based heart rate variability assessment for stress testing to indicate mind-heart coherence level, which is used to monitor and study how you can master your emotional and physical stress.
In addition, computerised testing can help assess stress levels and gain insights to further improve your long term health with ‘Life Coaching’ recommendations. Our resident Naturopath can provide assistance with Awakening-Awareness, Stress Management, Self-Care and Mojo Mentoring.
