About Me
Alternative Approaches: Link Into Better Health

The body is a holistic being. It needs to be nurtured and treated as a single entity rather than separate parts. As a naturopath, I am acutely aware of the ways in which imbalance in one part of the body can cause pain and discomfort in other seemingly unrelated body parts. I am currently studying to become a chiropractor and these links are becoming even more obvious to me. Over the years, family and friends who were initially sceptical about my medical advice have been amazed by the results when they combine alternative therapies with conventional medicine. I’m sure there are thousands of people out there who could benefit from a different approach to their health. I have started this blog to merely inform about the possibilities and allow readers to make up their own minds. Enjoy reading and best of health to you all!

4 Reasons You Should Consider Visiting a Naturopath

Tamara Fox

Health and wellness are ever-changing aspects of today's world. Diverse dietary approaches are evolving daily, and the significant number of supplements on the market is constantly rising. Besides, information access to the public has grown exponentially over the past few decades. Things like social media platforms have made learning resources more available now than ever. With all this, why would you waste your money and time visiting a naturopath? 

While the abundance of information might be one of the reasons not to, consider these few reasons why you should visit a naturopath;    

Understand the Reasons Behind the Way You Feel

People live in an information era, meaning hearing from a doctor alone isn't adequate to know whether you have high cholesterol or suffering from a headache. People want to understand why they are experiencing headache symptoms and the safest, most effective and evidence-based steps they can take to prevent it.

With so much information at your fingertips, you no longer need to take word of mouth at face value. You can quickly browse online using your smartphone to determine whether the information received is accurate. Visiting a naturopathic specialist is an excellent way to determine why you are experiencing a certain feeling, including constant headaches. Finding the right solution for your problem can prevent you from taking unnecessary pills.  

Focus on Disease Prevention

Generally, neuropathy aims to find the cause of an underlying condition and apply treatments that work alongside your body's natural healing mechanism instead of working against it. A naturopath specialist can treat your health condition while advising you on best practices to enhance the quality of life by reducing illnesses from the outset.  

Prescription of High-Quality Supplements.

Most neuropathy specialists run dispensaries with carefully selected supplements based on effectiveness and quality. Ideally, most of them might be "Practitioner Only Products." That means visiting a neuropathy specialist gives you access to products you won't find over the counter. A naturopath also monitors any counter-reactions to supplements and changes the prescription where necessary. 

The Use of Non-Invasive and Natural Treatment

Finally, a neuropathy specialist only uses non-invasive, painless and natural therapy methods to activate the body's self-healing mechanisms. They can examine physical symptoms, the effect of lifestyle choices and emotional status on your overall health. Furthermore, they can recommend nutritional changes, including superfoods and whole foods for strengthening your body, and a range of other evidence-based, practitioner-prescribed health products that are safe for use.
