Naturopathy is an holistic approach to treating the whole person, not just the disease. It is based on the belief that the body will find a way to heal itself, given the right opportunities.
Tania Sellwood is a Naturopathic Doctor trained in Australia, now based in Romsey, Hampshire. Tania is very passionate about her work and within this role she unravels the symptoms and helps to identify the cause of imbalance that is leading to your feelings of illness or disease.
For example, you may experience:
All of these symptoms can be treated separately with a painkiller for the headache, a pill to regulate your hormonal imbalance, antibiotics for skin concerns and possibly anti-depressants for your moods and sleeping concerns. But these are only treating the symptoms of the problem and when you stop taking the tablets you will find you still have the problem – unless you identify and change the cause of the imbalance.
During a consultation there will be time to look at the whole person, not just one symptom. When consideration is given to all aspects of your health, wellbeing and lifestyle, it becomes clear where underlying foundational changes need to be made.
With an understanding of these required changes and ideas of how best to implement them in your daily life, you’ll be able to make the right choices to create a new you.
Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Flower Essences
Treatments are given in the form of diet and lifestyle advice, with nutritional or herbal supplements as necessary. The emphasis is on educating you to understand the underlying cause of imbalance and being able to make lasting, sustainable changes towards improved health and wellbeing, natural vitality and longevity.
