Naturopathy is a system of healing which blends both traditional medicine and modern science.
Today’s Naturopath takes the traditional wisdom of natural medicine as developed by various cultures around the world over thousands of years, and blends it with knowledge gained from the latest clinical research.
Phoebe draws on her many years of clinical experience and combines this knowledge with functional pathology testing, if needed, and the latest natural medicine research to create individualised treatment plans. Phoebe uses a combination of Herbal Medicine, Clinical Nutrition, Flower Essences and Diet and Lifestyle Coaching.
Every Naturopathic client is seen as a unique individual and treated in a holistic manner tailored to their specific needs. As every person reacts differently to foods, lifestyle, and their environment, it is the role of the naturopath to look at the person as a whole and aim to discover and treat the cause of the problem as well as the presenting symptoms.
Herbal medicines are traditional medicines that are one of the oldest and still most widely used systems of medicine.
A large proportion of modern pharmaceutical medications are directly or indirectly derived from compounds extracted from the same herbs and plants used by naturopaths. However natural herbal medicines are made using extracts from the whole plant rather than chemically synthesising or mimicking the active component. As such, the full healing power within the plant is extracted as a whole and all components are consumed together the way nature intended. In this way, any potential side effects of the medicinal component are offset by the naturally occurring nutrients and compounds that nature provides intuitively to potentiate any adverse effects.
Naturopaths are extensively trained in Clinical Nutrition with an in-depth understanding of the ways people can be impacted by their diet and lifestyle. They will often recommend specific dietary changes or supplements in accordance with the individual’s needs to enhance their health outcomes.
This may include temporarily eliminating a food to prevent a detrimental reaction or adding certain foods known to be high in particular nutrients or health-giving properties. Sometimes small dietary adjustments are all that is needed to bring about healthy changes and at other times nutritional supplementation will be needed.
Phoebe is passionate about supporting people to achieve a healthier lifestyle. She has many years of experience motivating, educating and inspiring people to better health with realistic dietary and lifestyle changes.
