We are all very different – we have a unique lifestyle, medical history and diet and this is why many ‘one size fits all’ diets, detox plans and health advice does not work, especially in the long term.
Naturopathic nutrition takes into account the bigger picture to consider any influences on your health that may be coming from diet, exposure to stress, lifestyle and other potential factors – this is known as an holistic approach and aims to treat everyone as an individual with a unique set of circumstances.

From the Naturopathic Nutrition Association web site:-
Naturopathic nutrition is an holistic therapy that treats everyone as an individual, taking into account the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of the whole person when assessing health problems. Naturopathic nutrition recognises food selection and preparation as a healing art that seeks to address imbalances in the body. By creating the most favourable conditions to stimulate and enhance the body’s natural healing power through diet, lifestyle and possibly supplementation, a naturopathic nutrition practitioner can help people with a range of health problems.
Naturopathic practitioners aim to seek out and advise on ways to remove or reduce the cause of disease, rather than simply suppressing the symptoms. We passionately believe in this holistic approach that shifts the view of healthcare from one focused on the management of symptoms to one that aims to improve health and wellbeing; it is one of the fundamental differences between the naturopathic approach and conventional medicine.
