Christchurch Naturopath  

What does a naturopath do?

As a naturopath I can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and support you through difficult life stages and periods of stress.

 

In the past naturopathic medicine has been called an alternate therapy but nowadays naturopathy is recognised world wide.

 

Naturopaths are happy to work alongside doctors and other medical professionals as complementary practitioners to promote health and wellness.

Holistic treatment of your health problems

 

As a naturopathic medicine practitioner, I include your whole body in your assessment - what we call holistic therapy. That means taking notes about the 'history' of your problems you want to discuss, then together make plans for your future.

 

It's not enough to have a diagnosis of pain or anxiety in it's many forms or to get pills to reduce your pain, your anxiety or stress levels  - better to find out WHY?

Do you want to change any of these symptoms?

 

  • Muscle aches and pain

  • Pain – neck, shoulder, back

  • Joint pain 

  • Anxiety 

  • Chronic stress or fear of burnout

  • Brain fog or poor concentration

  • Stress and concomitant problems

  • Indigestion, bloating, constipation, or IBS

Practitioner only supplements

 

As a trained professional the supplements that I may prescribe are high quality, researched and made to high specifications, practitioner only supplements.

 

Also it's important to keep supplements to a minimum - those that are essential

Meet Christchurch Naturopath Jean

In a naturopath consult you can expect to be asked about:-

  • What and how you eat and drink

  • Your lifestyle, both social and work

  • Exercise, movement and activity

  • Drugs and medication prescribed by your doctor (important that we know this)

  • Bring in all supplements: across the counter supplements, those from friends or online.

 

At this clinic we generally use Australian supplements that are strictly regulated by the TGA (therapeutic goods act) for quality and content, if supplements are needed.
