About Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a traditional form of Natural medicine, which takes a holistic approach to healthcare - considering physical, mental and emotional health. 

 

Naturopathy treats the cause of disease, rather than simply masking the symptoms. It is based on the principal that the body has the ability to self heal, and by finding the root of the disease, the problems will be eliminated, encouraging optimal health and vitality.

 

The initial consultation is 1 hour duration and will discuss all  of the systems within the body, such as digestion, reproduction, immune, muscular and nervous system - this gives a clear indication of how the systems are functioning within the body. Treatment may include herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle advice. 

 

At Hider Health & Vitality, we offer holistic, Naturopathic treatments for a variety of health complaints or concerns. We are here to work WITH you towards great health and vitality!
