A Naturopath is a holistic practitioner who prescribes herbal medicine, nutrition and flower essences to promote the body’s own healing processes. At Red Suva Natural Therapies we focus on strengthening and supporting the systems and organs involved in a condition to enable to the body to heal itself. Naturopaths also focus on the underlying causes of disease, which includes dietary and lifestyle habits that may be contributing to the individual’s condition.
Diagnostic tools such as iridology, nail and tongue diagnosis, bio-impedence testing, blood, urine, hair and saliva samples can be used to help establish underlying causes of conditions. We encourage self-responsibility in health and help to facilitate dietary and lifestyle modifications that are specific to each individual’s needs. Through patient education we work to prevent the manifestation of disease and are happy to work in conjunction with other health professionals to provide a more holistic treatment.
Naturopathy can effectively treat the symptoms of many common ailments. It can release muscular tension, repair injury, relieve pain, strengthen immunity, stimulate circulation, improve digestion and detoxification, harmonise emotions, boost energy, and most importantly, maintain health. We practice within a holistic framework embracing the connection between the body’s function, structure, mind and spirit.
