The gentle and safe naturopathic treatments are also safe for pregnant women and children of all ages. Regardless of the condition of your health, naturopathy can be an excellent step toward wellness.

Initial Consultations & Follow Up Appointments:

The first consultation usually takes an hour and a half. It is an in-depth journey into your health and whatever ailments you may be experiencing. We will look at each body system and talk about your diet, your sleep patterns, your mental health and stress levels and much more. We will gain an overall understanding of the underlying causes of whatever is keeping you from optimum health and wellbeing. And then we will begin to devise a plan to address these underlying causes. Our treatment plan will usually incorporate some dietary modifications and lifestyle advice. A personalised herbal tincture, tea blend or flower essence formula may also be offered.

You will generally be invited back for a follow-up consultation 2-3 weeks later which takes around 45 minutes. As many follow-ups as necessary can be booked, depending on how much support you need going forward. A naturopath is a guide and teacher as mentioned above but I am also your support and ongoing advisor for as long as you need after our initial consultation.

Naturopathy In Ireland:

Naturopathy still isn’t very well known in Ireland, but it is much more popular in other countries such as the US, Canada & Australia. What many people in Ireland don’t realise is that in these countries Naturopaths are licensed as Doctors and legally have the same medical standing as a medical doctor. Because this modality of healing is less well known in Ireland it is often considered “alternative medicine”. However, it is more accurately holistic medicine and was THE medicine for most of history until the pharmaceutical industry took over and pushed Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine to the periphery with dubious legislation such as the Flexner report of 1910 which shut down all medical schools that refused to use pharmaceuticals as their main form of treatment. But the good news is we are making a come back with natural medicine becoming more and more important as the pharmaceutical medical system begins to come up against antibiotic resistance and continues to fail to heal chronic diseases.
