Health Care Detectives
These are the four steps we take to help our patients restore their health:
1. Identify The Problem!
Without understanding why you are unwell, treatment can be symptomatic or a trial and error process. If your diagnosis is unclear, we recommend testing from your doctor, for things like iron levels or coeliac disease.
If your symptoms could be due to a nutritional imbalance, deficiency, or toxicity, we recommend tests such as Oligoscan, Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA), Stool Analysis, iodine levels, and/or food sensitivities.
A detailed look into your medical history often identifies minor and easily overlooked health events which reveal the origin of your health problem.
2. Treat Underlying Causes.
Once we understand what needs treating, developing a treatment plan becomes possible. There can be more than one treatment option. We discuss with you efficient, cost effective and manageable and suitable treatment for you needs.
Treatment options include:
- Nutritional supplementation
- Dietary recommendations
- Homeopathic medicines
- Detoxification of chemicals /heavy metals
- Herbal medicines
At times, we refer to other health professionals appropriate to your situation.
Once your symptoms start improving, we assist you with health maintenance.
Achieving good health involves:
- Quality nutrition through diet
- Avoiding exposure to toxic materials in the home, garden and when buying food
- Developing a healthy lifestyle
- Learning how to problem solve and manage mental and emotional stress.
4. Taking Charge of Your Own Health
Our goal is to help you to restore your mental, physical, and emotional health, so that you can enjoy and live your life fully.
The World Health Organisation’s definition of health is: ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’
