NATUROPATHY – BYRON BAY
“In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties” – Henri-Frédéric Amiel
Allergy tests are performed in order to diagnose and assess specific allergies or intolerances, in order that a suitable treatment may be decided. It is possible for any substance, whether taken orally or by skin contact, to trigger an allergic reaction and these triggers are known as allergens.
Allergic symptoms can range from minor to potentially life threatening, such as anaphylaxis. Common symptoms include:
- Skin conditions (hives, dermatitis, eczema)
- Respiratory conditions (runny eyes, nasal congestion, wheezing, hay fever, asthma)
- Digestive symptoms (cramps, diarrhoea, bloating, reflux)
There are many different types of allergy tests available, some of which are performed only by medical doctors. Our Naturopath uses the VEGA test to determine which food and environmental allergens you may be reacting to. It is an accurate, quick, painless testing procedure with all results given on-the-spot along with dietary advice and treatment where necessary.
If you’d like to find out what influences are disrupting your health or determine whether you have food or environmental allergies or intolerances then please call us to make an appointment (02) 6685 8366
Naturopathy literally means “the study of nature”. It is the practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human mind and body.
By integrating conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies and traditional medicines, naturopathy treats the patient on a mental, emotional and physical level.
The purpose of a Naturopath is to treat the whole person to stimulate and support the person’s own innate healing capacity. This is done using a wide variety of therapies, including herbal medicine, homeopathy, iridology, tongue and nail analysis, nutritional advice (diet and lifestyle recommendations), supplementation, flower essences, massage, and various other types of bodywork.Therefore, Naturopathy is concerned with treating the cause of the disease or illness, as well as the prevention of disease states, not just treating symptoms alone as orthodox medicine does.
A Naturopath aims to educate, empower and motivate the patient to assume more personal responsibility for their health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet.
Naturopathy can treat a wide range of health problems and is suitable for people of all ages.
Iridology is the study of the iris which is the coloured part of our eyes. Iridologists use this diagnostic tool to assess what internal and external influences are disrupting a person’s health by examining different signs, colours and markings in the iris.
Iridology provides the practitioner with important information about the state of body organs and systems, toxicity levels, genetic weaknesses, emotional health, nutritional deficiencies, as well as the vitality and constitution of each individual so that treatment can be tailored to suit each person accordingly.
Iridology is therefore a preventative health tool as disease states can be detected before they reach a chronic stage so that treatment can take place before anything more serious develops.
