When should I choose to see a Core Naturopathics Practitioner?
You want a practitioner who will treat all of you, not just your illness
Naturopathic medicines primary goal is to restore and maintain optimal health by supporting your body’s inherent self-healing processes. This necessarily requires your practitioner to broadly explore what has contributed to development of your illness.
Over the course of your treatment, much time will be spent talking with your practitioner and health coach. Taking the time to listen and understand the genetic, environmental, behavioural and lifestyle factors that may be affecting your health is a key part of your healing journey.
You want personalised treatment
We understand there is no one-size-fits-all treatment that works for everybody. That’s why as part of your consultation we take a ‘snap shot’ or ‘finger print’ of your individual biochemistry. This functional medicine profile provides insight into how far from balance your system is and guides your practitioner’s decision making and recommendations.
We also seek and encourage your participation in creating a treatment plan uniquely tailored to you, your health status, your health goals, and your lifestyle.
You want to treat the root cause of an illness, not just the symptoms
Health can be envisaged on a timeline or spectrum. Symptoms like insomnia, aches and pains, skin rashes, constant fatigue, recurrent infections and indigestion or stomach discomfort are early markers of imbalance, that if ignored can eventually lead to a ‘catastrophic’ loss is self-regulative capacity and the development of chronic disease.
While these symptoms can be managed with a ‘band-aid’ approach, we feel it is more important to understand and treat the root cause— this is the focus and domain of naturopathic medicine.
You want to save time, money and effort
Under one roof we can evaluate and treat the matrix of fundamental causes in the assessment and therapeutic process. Moreover, we can prioritise and guide you in selecting appropriate and targeted therapeutic interventions – what do you need to do when and in what order? For you this ultimately leads to earlier and more effective interventions that not only may extend your life but also potentially give you back years of good living.
Functional Medicine brings the potential to liberate you from dependence on costly medications, specialist consultation fees, diagnostic tests and interventions that are not designed to address the root causes of your disease.
You want to actively participate in managing your own health
At Core Naturopathics we will help you learn what your body needs to get well and stay healthy – to arrest your movement toward the ‘cliff edge’ of chronic disease and point you back in the direction of ‘safety’ and optimal health.
We seek to provide you the opportunity to feel empowered and hopeful when you understand and are actively engaged in managing your own health.
You have chronic pain and don’t want to use pharmaceutical drugs long term
The experience of unregulated pain that lasts six months or more is obviously more complex than acute pain and requires a holistic and long-term approach to manage.
At Core Naturopathics, our practitioners act as a team and work with you to determine which combination of therapies is best for you to heal or manage your pain safely so that you can resume daily activities. Warning: you may well fall in love with our PMT120 PEMF unit!
You have tried all conventional medical options
In reading this far you will recognise that our approach is not limited to the symptom-based use of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic therapy alone. While undoubtedly miraculous in many cases, every individual will benefit from the additional use of ‘pro’ therapies rather than ‘anti’ in isolation.
Our practitioners use diagnostic tools common in conventional medicine, such as detailed health and prescription drug histories, genetic profiles, physical exams, and targeted laboratory testing and imaging. However, we interpret these finding in the context of function rather than pathology.
In addition, we also consider detailed diet history, lifestyle habits and choices, exercise history, and social/emotional factors in assessing your needs. These approaches can open doors to new treatment pathways and options.
