What is Naturopathy?

mind, body, spirit, soul and you - balance or wellbeing concept - handwriting on colorful sticky notes against grained wood

Naturopathy is a complementary health profession with a focus on holistically treating you as an individual and addressing your health concerns. Sam will take your detailed case history and work towards identifying the underlying cause(s) of your ill health, rather than just treating your symptoms. One of the major philosophies of Naturopathic health care is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Conditions treated

Naturopath’s provide supportive treatment for a wide range of chronic and acute conditions including: fatigue, lack of energy, low mood, poor concentration, sleep issues, coughs, colds, sinus, hayfever, gastrointestinal problems such as IBS, Crohn’s, Fructose malabsorption, GORD, reproductive issues such as PMS, PCOS & endometriosis, weight loss, preconception care, diabetes, hypertension & high cholesterol.

I've been contemplating, actually salivating over, a new coffee machine. It's awesome. 5 stars on CoffeeSnobs.

When I suggested this might be a good birthday present for Mum, Ms 7 gave me tough love.
Namely the manual one I have does the same job in the same time and I really didn't need one with a timer. Also having a great machine, might result in more coffee being drunk and you already drink enough. More coffee isn't healthy. You tell people not to drink too much coffee Mum!

If I needed a reminder on how much kids soak up, this was it, distilled in a couple of off-hand sentences.

Goodbye coffee machine idea. Let's see what else I can dream up that passes the 7yo logic test 😂

A birthday party with hobbit flavour?
If you find something you like, and the owner agrees, you can take it home.

And when it's at a traditional herbalists home you might end up with something pretty original :)

I've had an interesting couple of weeks. I'm sharing as I think this is something we all go through from time to time.

On reflection it has made me think about how important it is for us all to cultivate 'resilience' and build up support networks. For me, utilising wonderful nurturing herbs.
Thankfully, I've got a great store of all 3 ❤️.

A part of the 'downs' during this period involved me letting go a little more of how I thought life was going to be. It's ridiculous how intractable we become.

Definitely chucking out the FOMO and tossing it to the curb.
We can all feel a little low looking at or hearing about what are essentially #insta curated and ultimately superficial things like holidays in overseas resorts, bucket list destinations & other such things.

Change your perception filter and you'll see these in a dramatically different light.

Recognizing that the only thing you can really change in life is you, and how you react to external stimuli. Unlike Pavlov's dog, I'm looking at unlearning some habits, and re-jigging some things that were awesome self protection measures but no longer serve me as well.

Interesting, and I guess proving my point here, is that the 'ups' over this period were a culmination of serious hard graft & long term persistence and were all self driven achievements.
As well as actively celebrating what I have in life that is wonderful, quirky, uplifting, authentic, genuine & life affirming.

I get that some people might need more than friends, herbs & colorful memes to get to this point. If you're struggling send me a PM for referrals or contact organizations like Lifeline 13 11 14.

Enjoy your Sunday. With gratitude x
