Frequently asked questions

  • What is Naturopathy?

    Naturopathy is a system of healthcare based on traditional philosophies and principles. Student practitioners are highly trained over 4 years to take a holistic and individualised approach to healthcare. Your practitioner will take detailed notes about your health problem and lifestyle, and complete a physical exam to assess your physical and mental health. Treatments are tailored to your needs and may incorporate nutritional coaching, herbal medicine, supplementation, lifestyle and exercise advice.

    Your practitioner may also use traditional skills to evaluate your constitutional health via iridology and prescribe flower essence remedies or homoeopathy as part of a holistic health recommendation.

  • What is Homeopathy?

    Homeopathy is a traditional naturopathic modality that uses highly diluted preparations of substances to stimulate the body’s healing response to disease.

    Treating each client as an individual, the homeopath will ask in detail about the presenting complaint taking into account lifestyle, eating habits, mental health and medical history. The practitioner takes particular notice of the unique symptom picture of the client as this helps in determining the appropriate homeopathic prescription. Your prescription will be prescribed in low doses in either pillules or drop dose form. Homeopathy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions and is prescribed in conjunction with a full naturopathic consultation.

  • What is Body Composition Analysis?
    Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures body composition based on the rate at which an electrical current travels through the body.

    The Practice Wellbeing Centre has Therapeutic Goods Association-approved body composition analysis equipment. This easy-to-use equipment accurately measures body mass index, muscle mass, body fat, hydration levels and other important biomarkers. This testing is most commonly used for clients with a focus on weight loss or gain, obtaining peak physical performance, managing chronic disease risk and managing health proactively.

    Body composition analysis takes just 15 minutes and is best used in conjunction with a full complementary medicine consultation where the practitioner can explain results and help you to achieve your health goals.
