Naturopathy

Treating Acute & Chronic Conditions Naturally

You may already know that naturopathic medicine is a natural way of treating acute and chronic conditions.

What you may not know however is that DETOXologie is one of the leading providers of naturopathy. We will devise an individualised treatment plan that may include Western and Eastern Herbal Medicine, Nutritional Supplementation, Diet Planning as well as health and lifestyle education.

What to Expect…

During your initial consultation, a detailed health history will be taken, your questions will be answered and naturopathic tests may be recommended to provide vital information for your treatment plan. By the end of your consultation your Naturopath will recommend a plan to bring your body back into balance and achieve your goals, naturally.

After the initial consultation (1 Hour is required), follow-up consultations typically last for 30 minutes and are necessary to monitor change and assist the individual with ongoing wellness. The number of follow-up consultations required will vary according to the individual’s health goals and status.

Sclerology

Sclerology is the art and science of interpreting the red lines in the white of the eyes for their reflex health implications.  These lines quickly reveal constitutional pre-dispositions to disease, weak tissues and acute concerns, as well as the cause and effect of the symptom-patterns that affect people’s health.  Sclerology provides an ‘early warning’ picture of health issues.  This method is used as a health or guide tool, not as a diagnosis

Iridology

Every organ in the body is connected to the Iris via the nervous system.  The eye works in two ways, not only does it enable us to bring images of the outside world within, it also shows images of what is within to the outside.  A Naturopath examines the iris to determine what areas of the body are weak and they may suggest herbal remedies, nutritional advice and other health modalities in order to support and strengthen the organs to a state of better health.

Tongue Assesment

Tongue diagnosis is an important assessment tool used in Complementary Medicine.  The tongue can be viewed as a map or an atlas of a person’s health and constitution. Assessing the tongue’s colour, shape, cracks and coatings can reveal important information about a client’s current state of health and vitality.  This provides your practitioner with a much deeper understanding of health or healing of their client.

The tongue of a healthy person is pinkish in colour, moves freely and is moist with a light coating.  Tongue signs of disharmony may include cracks, thick coatings or unusual markings.

A DETOXologie practitioner will examine the tongue for an indication of the following health conditions:

  • Excess Heat
  • Allergies
  • Poor circulation
  • Digestive problems
  • Stress
  • Excessive mucous

After a treatment program has begun, healing is reflected when the tongue changes appearance over the course of treatment.  Our practitioners may take before and after photographs to monitor this change.

Food Intolerance Testing

Food Intolerance Testing is a testing method used for people who suspect that certain foods are causing their unwanted digestive or other health symptoms.  The food intolerance test involves taking a pin prick of blood from the finger. Within a few hours, you will receive a detailed report.  This test identifies if your body has a mild, moderate or strong intolerance to the 46 foods tested.  Dietary changes will need to be made depending on your results and further supplementation or herbal medicine may be recommended by one of our practitioners for your best health outcome.

Nutritional or Naturopathic consultations are recommended after the testing to support dietary change and ensure the foods that are removed from the diet are replaced with suitable, delicious alternatives.  This ensures that your body does not miss out on any important nutrients to sustain health and vitality.

The thought of cutting out certain foods from your diet can be daunting; however, finding out that your body is intolerant to certain foods is just the beginning of eating differently.  You will find that removing the offending food for varying periods of time will allow you to lead a more fulfilling life, minimizing digestive symptoms that you may have endured for many years.
