The Naturopathic approach to health uses nature to support your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
The Naturopaths at Mr Vitamins advocate a holistic approach to healing – including nutritious food, pure water, clean air, and sunshine. Naturopaths usually recommend specific supplements to suit your body’s needs. These might include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and sometimes medicinal herbs, homeopathy, flower essences or aromatherapy. They may also use physical therapies such as massage.
Mr Vitamins’ has a team of qualified Naturopaths available to answer your questions and provide in-depth consultations. Getting the best advice can help you optimise your health – and save you money by using the correct supplements and dosages. Your Naturopath will often help you explore the relationship between your mind and your body and how your thoughts, feelings and lifestyle shape your health. At Mr Vitamins, each person is treated as an individual. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach to a given problem, a Naturopath can develop a plan that’s right for you.
What Training and Qualifications do Naturopaths Have?
Naturopaths in Australia undergo a 4-year full-time training course with 400 clinic hours. This gives them an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy, which they may use as the basis of a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Complementary Medicine) Degree. Once qualified, Naturopaths may register as Health Fund Providers. Naturopaths study a wide range of health-related subjects including Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Flower Essences, Counselling, Symptomatology and Diagnosis, Pathology, Biochemistry, Iridology, Swedish and Remedial Massage.
Like mainstream medicine, Naturopaths adhere to the Hippocratic Oath which includes the principle of “first do no harm”. This means that your Naturopath will only suggest treatments that can be a benefit of for you. They use only natural products and therapies to bring your body back to its natural balance and health by enhancing its own healing ability.
