Whether you are suffering from a chronic or acute condition, looking to better manage stress, boost your energy or simply enhance your overall health & wellbeing, Beth (Naturopath, Medical Herbalist & Accredited Buteyko Breathing practitioner) treats a wide range of health issues by focusing on and identifying the underlying cause of your various symptoms. She then creates a treatment plan that is realistic and individualised to suit your needs. This is an empowering process for each client as they experience first hand the amazing healing that comes from a personalised & holistic approach.
Naturopathy is natural medicine healthcare that incorporates a wide range of alternative & complementary therapeutic treatments, to prevent and treat acute and chronic health problems holistically. While there may be a place in treating the symptoms to provide relief, the aim is always to identify the root cause of dis-ease, and treatment is focused on encouraging and supporting a person's innate self-healing processes, promoting a return to optimal health long-term.
Naturopathic alternative therapeutic methods include holistic nutritional advice, dietary enhancements, tailor made liquid herbal formulas, beneficial lifestyle recommendations, and where needed, high quality practitioner-only supplements. All products used are backed by scientific research to ensure their full efficacy and absorption into your body, to boost your health.
Herbal medicine is an integral part of natural medicine, that has a long history of use. Today scientific research is increasingly validating herbal medicine as we seek to understand the active chemistry of medicinal plants. Each plant contains many active ingredients that work synergistically to stimulate or strengthen the body's normal functions, and innate healing processes. These active ingredients or nutrients include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids and flavonoids. Herbal actions include immune boosting actions, supporting the body's stress response & nervous system, enhancing cognitive function, modulating hormone production, supporting the body's circulatory or cardiovascular system, and much more.
Proper supplementation with natural plant remedies aids the body in healing itself and preventing future illness and disease.
Iridology is the study of the iris, and is used as an additional health analysis tool during your naturopathic consultation. Essentially, the iris provides a map of the body, with different areas representing different organs or body systems. While we do not use iridology to diagnose any conditions, it is a tool that is extremely useful to provide supporting information relevant to your health. For example, iridology analysis may indicate weak areas within the body, which may need further assessment or need to be supported as part of your treatment.
The iridology analysis forms just one part of your in-depth naturopathic consultation; it is combined with a detailed case take of your medical history, diet & nutritional status, and other physical examinations (e.g. vital signs, nail and tongue analyses, & blood/urine/saliva testing when appropriate).
Named after Russian medical researcher & doctor, Konstantin Buteyko, Buteyko Breathing is essentially, breathing retraining. Dysfunctional breathing is extremely common & has a huge negative impact on our health. Signs your breathing might be less than ideal include: mouth breathing, frequent yawning, sighing, sniffing, waking with a dry mouth and snoring. Conditions associated with dysfunctional breathing include: asthma, sinusitis, allergies, hayfever, chronically blocked nose, sleep apnoea, snoring, reflux, constipation or diarrhoea and anxiety. The way we breathe influences functioning of our airways, blood circulation and oxygen release to the cells. Both adults & children suffering from these conditions can be significantly helped by use of the Buteyko method.
The Buteyko Breathing method is taught via a serious of three 90 minute workshops, with homework and daily practice to improve breathing patterns. The breathing center in the brain will adapt to functional breathing, improving your health now, and long term.
Food is medicine and here at the Vida Naturopathics we see on a daily basis how the food we eat either nourishes us in mind, body & spirit, or it contributes to dis-ease. There is no one diet that suits us all so every client treatment plan will incorporate tailored dietary recommendations to enhance your nutritional status & your overall wellbeing.
Our holistic approach to nutrition is a collaborative process, to ensure recommended dietary enhancements are ones you are able to commit to & fit into your current lifestyle.
A massage can be a pampering treat, but it can also be a huge boost to your health and wellness. Regular therapeutic & relaxation massage offers immense health benefits, on a physical, mental & spiritual level.
We specialize in therapeutic & relaxation massage, providing an effective treatment for sore muscles related to stress & tension, and promoting the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) which offers immeasurable benefits given the hectic pace of life today.
We offer complimentary 15 minute discovery video or phone consultations to new clients. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, understand what to expect at your initial consultation & feel comfortable we are the right fit prior to booking your initial consultation.
