Why Consult a Naturopathic Practitioner ? Reasons for Consultation



Why consult a naturopath and what can it do for you?

As a naturopath, I listen attentively and patiently take the necessary time required to understand your health and analyze the root cause of your discomfort.

I then seek to identify any predisposing factors which may be triggering and supporting imbalances in the body, which I refer to as FAM (functional analysis matrix). I then go over the returned questionairre with you with.

I will look for eight fundamental imbalances:

  • Redox / homeostasis
  • Inflammatory process
  • Detoxification, biotransformation
  • Neuro-hormonal regulation
  • Psycho-spiritual balance
  • Structural Integrity
  • Digestion, Absorption
  • Intestinal permeability, microbial flora
  • Immune system

I exam the 6 physiological processes:

  • Communication within and between cells
  • Energy and its production
  • Replication, reproduction, distribution, growth
  • Traffic and Transportation
  • Disposal: emunctories (IRPP)
  • Detoxification and biotransformation

I will determine the top three imbalances which are in the most urgent need of treatment and I will select from 10 technical therapies those that are best suited to your case; and as any two people with the same symptoms may respond to the same treatments differently, each treatment is customized.

Then I try to restore all the balances, homeostasis, a give a naturopathic assessment:

  • Acid / Basic balance
  • Balanced diet
  • Balanced amino acids, lipids, AGE (Essential Fatty Acid) carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, trace elements
  • Balance cell operation
  • Neurohormonal balance
  • Digestive balance
  • Immune balance
  • Psycho / spiritual balance
  • Structural balance
  • Energy balance
  • Mechanical equilibrium
  • Balance of exercise / breathing
