Iridology

Definition: observation of the iris (coloured portion of the eye) by means of a magnifier to note various colours or health markers

This assessment is normally performed at the conclusion of your consultation.

Your naturopath uses iridology to aid her diagnosis, thus providing additional insight into your general health and constitution.

Iris signs may indicate areas of inherited weakness, whether in a particular organ or system of your body.

Fertility & Family Planning

 Discussing fertility and family planning with your naturopath is a sound investment into the health of you and your baby.  The information gained applies to any person wishing to conceive, regardless of age or ease of conception.

 Your naturopath will assess the state of health of you and your partner prior to conception and make necessary suggestions to optimise your health and facilitate conception.

 Pre-conception care is recommended at least 4 months prior to conception and clinical studies have proven its role in greatly reducing the risk of complications during pregnancy and birth.

 Both parents are assessed individually in all aspects of health, diet and lifestyle.

 Dietary and lifestyle changes are essential during this period.  A tailored strategy is designed to meet personal/individual requirements.

 Vitamin, mineral &/or herbal supplementation may be advised/recommended in certain cases.

 Valuable dietary and nutritional information is also provided post birth to ensure optimal health is maintained during breastfeeding and beyond.
