    About Naturopathic Medicine: An Integrated Approach to Better Health

Health is more than the absence of obvious disease.  It is dependent upon the individual and is a reflection of a harmonious interaction with our environment - both internally, within our body, and externally.  Dysfunction in one area invariably leads to disruption elsewhere.  

People are genetically, biochemically, structurally and emotionally different from one another.

From the moment of conception, through birth, childhood, illness and injury, each person responds in a unique way to influences whether they are mental/emotional, structural, nutritional, social or cultural.

Naturopathic medicine aims to establish health on a cellular level by improving circulation and innervation, nutrition, detoxification and elimination.

Naturopathic medicine also takes note of evolutionary living principles, which are based on the millennia we spent living as hunter-gathers.  Then, as now in existing natural primal lifestyles in Africa, South America and the Arctic, we were strong, lean, fit, agile - both physically and mentally - and fertile.  We interacted on a moment by moment basis with our environment; all five, possibly six, of our senses alive and active.

Traditionally, naturopathic medicine follows a Triad of Health model.

The Triad of Health describes the connection and interaction between the structural, biochemical and mental/emotional components of all living beings.

Naturopathic medicine uses a broad range range of techniques including diet and nutritional medicine, detoxification treatments, herbal remedies, good breathing practice, hydrotherapy, postural re-education, relaxation techniques and emotional management techniques.

About Julia Williams, osteopath & naturopath

Naturopathy is not a single therapy.  It is not even a group of therapies. It is a philosophy of health that is at least as old as the time of Hippocrates and adheres to the principle of ‘first do no harm’.  It is used by the naturopathic practitioner to assist in increasing the vitality of the individual and to educate the patient in the long-term attainment and continuance of good health.

Osteopathy complements naturopathy perfectly as the structural and mechanical component of the treatment.

The Neurological Integration System (NIS) assists in a complete naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment protocol.

All functional areas of the human body - the musculoskeletal system, organ function, hormonal balance, the immune system, emotions and behavioural patterns - are monitored and coordinated by our central nervous system.  

The Neurological Integration System reveals disturbed communications between all our body’s systems and enables a "reset" of the normal connections.  Comparable to an update for a troubled operating system of a computer, only many times more complex!
