What is Naturopathy?
The guiding principles of Naturopathy are to encourage the body’s inherent ability to heal, by removing the obstacles to health.
The practitioner’s role is to look for the root causes of the presenting health condition and to treat these, rather than just treating the symptoms. The practitioner will look at the whole person by investigating all the body systems to see which ones need support.
The treatment will be individualised for each patient. An initial consult will include thorough questioning and further testing, if needed, to formulate a plan. This plan will be based upon the goals of the patient and also what they are capable of taking on in a flexible and supportive environment.
“I highly recommend Heidi to anyone who would like a practitioner who is willing to go the extra mile to investigate and treat the root cause of your concerns in a non-judgemental and kind-hearted way. She truely is a gem and I am so blessed to have her in my corner. ”

Allergies and Intolerances
Allergies arise when the immune system becomes reactive to certain substances.
These substances can be inhaled, contacted by touch or eaten. Intolerances are also immune system reactions, but they tend to exhibit a more delayed response.
