Naturopathy

Naturopathy

Naturopathic doctors at MEDICUS treat most conditions. Specialisation in a wide range of the significant modalities allows a unique platform in which to view, test and treat a presenting patient.

Naturopathic medicine grew out of alternative healing systems of the 18th and 19th centuries, but traces its philosophical roots to the Hippocratic school of medicine (circa 400 BC).

Fundamental principles adhered to by the practitioners at MEDICUS are the inherent power of Nature to heal; to identify and treat the cause of an illness; to treat the whole person; and that prevention is the best cure. Many easily treatable conditions will frequently progress to significant disease parameters because appropriate preventative measures are not understood or employed.

Naturopathic medicine at MEDICUS can be used as a standalone treatment or in addition to complementary methods to treat the following:

Nutrition is the backbone of naturopathic medicine. By changing our diets and adopting a healthy lifestyle, we can often change or reverse the course of an illness and restore health.

Naturopathic medicine at MEDICUS can be used as a standalone treatment or in addition to complementary methods to treat the following:

  • Colds and flu,
  • digestive issues,
  • headaches,
  • sore throats,
  • ear infections,
  • UTIs,
  • contact dermatitis and skin conditions,
  • autoimmune disease,
  • cardiovascular conditions,
  • arthritis,
  • migraines,
  • musculoskeletal pain,
  • fertility issues,
  • depression,

At MEDICUS the emphasis is on building health rather than treating disease.

Consultations | Appointments

Care is taken to procure all vital details of the patient’s history including current use of or thodox medications. The results of any prior testing procedures are viewed as very relevant to the patient’s presenting health status.

The patient would then undergo one or more of the useful diagnostic procedures used at MEDICUS as requested by their Naturopathic Physician.
These include:

  • Allergy Testing
  • Blood Testing
  • Body Composition Testing
  • Electro-Meridian Imaging
  • Faecal Analysis
  • Hair Analysis
  • Iris Diagnosis
  • Physical Exam & Palpation
  • Screening Procedures
  • Ultrasound
  • Urine & Saliva Testing
  • X-Ray
If further testing is required samples may be sent away to be analysed by a medical testing laboratory.

At MEDICUS all testing procedures are regarded as important because they give precise scientific parameters in order to treat the patient specifically and progressively.
