Naturopathy

 

Naturopathy uses natural medicines that support the bodies ability to heal itself. Natural medicines are our oldest medicine, tried and proven by the ancient people of the earth over thousands of years. Their use in more recent times is backed by extensive scientific and clinical research.

Natural Therapies used at Next Wave include:

  • Herbal Medicine

  • Nutritional Medicine

  • Diet advice

  • Lifestyle mentoring

Natural medicines are only prescribed after an initial assessment identifying your individual needs. Your naturopath will then work with you, modifying your treatment as your needs change.

Our highly experienced Naturopaths use practitioner only products. Whether taking a capsule, tea, tincture, tablet or powder we prescribe natural medicines with low to minimal excipients and where possible are locally sourced.

What to expect in a Naturopathic Consultation?

Naturopathy consultation at Next Wave starts with an initial health assessment which involves:

  • discussion about your health concerns and a comprehensive health check of all your body systems

  • reviewing medical blood chemistry results or requesting further functional assessments from an external laboratory e.g. microbiome, SIBO, genetic methylation testing, sleep profiles, cortisol stress profiles

  • nail, tongue and iris analysis

  • identifying underlying contributing factors to your complaints and formulating a clear treatment plan with you
