Going Medical or Natural. There is no need to choose just one.

In the time I have been practising, I have noticed a shift in the way people think about natural medicine.  Previously many people referred to Naturopathy as an alternative treatment to Western medicine.  Now naturopathy is considered widely as complementary to allopathic / pharmaceutical treatments.  There have been studies that show an improvement in the performance of pharmaceuticals alongside naturopathic treatment.

The Benefits of seeing a Naturopath during Pregnancy

From the day of conception your body’s nutrient requirements are far more than when it was just yourself to keep running.

You can imagine something that roughly triples in size in the first 4 – 6 weeks is going to need some extra help in the nutrition department.  It’s getting busy!!
