Naturopathy

Herbal Medicine by Biophilia Health

Herbal Medicine, in the form of liquid extracts, is a completely individualised and wholistic type of medicine. A trained Herbalist can target multiple body systems (e.g. digestive, nervous, immune system etc) or address specific areas of your health in one liquid prescription by combining a selection of herbs that exert the desired action/s. 

Liquid extracts are easily absorbed by the body making them very effective. They also contain a multitude of naturally occurring constituents that create synergy (when constituents combine to produce an effect that is greater than the effect of the isolated constituent alone).

If you would like to try herbal medicine, it is important to see a health professional who is trained in the safe use and dispensing of herbal medicines. This ensures that appropriate consideration and care is given to each individuals unique requirements prior to starting on any treatment.

Nutrition

Nutrition is one of the fundamental pillars of health in Naturopathic Medicine. As Hippocrates once said “Let food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be thy food”

Today, the branch of science known as Nutrigenomics (the study of the relationship between the human genome, nutrition and health) has found that the food we eat does in fact determine our health by altering genes and influencing gene expression. 

The good news is that you can positively influence your genes with the appropriate dietary changes and maintenance. Book in with one of our qualified Naturopaths and find the diet that is right for you!
