Homeopathy and Natural Medicine
Natural medicine uses various natural therapies to stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Practitioners examine, diagnose and treat patients using programs tailored to the individual and their specific health condition.
This holistic approach takes into account the primary systems that effect health – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Treatment often eliminates the need for long term medical care or prescription drugs by focusing on the underlying causes of an illness rather than the symptoms.
By educating the person in the cause of their health problem and how to relieve or eliminate it, natural medicine places an emphasis on a preventative approach to healing.

How Does Natural Medicine Work? Natural Medicine utilises a variety of techniques to promote the bodies healing process.

This is an extremely safe treatment modality and is frequently used for multiple-medicated individuals, in pregnancy/lactation, for small children and elderly.
