Providing wellness using natural alternatives.
Naturopathy believes that if we maintain the balance within our bodies, that they are better equipped to maintain good health as the immune system is better able to defend from infection and disease. Naturopathic treatments and therapies may help the body balance itself and find equilibrium. These treatments ensure the body and mind are able to remain resilient, and recover promptly from imbalances caused by:
- incorrect diet
- lifestyle choices
- environmental factors
- influences from our surroundings
When we do succumb to an illness and contract a fever, this is viewed as the body dealing with the source of the problem. So fever is naturopathically not viewed as a negative event, rather as part of the body’s natural defense mechanism.

How Long Until I Get Better?
How long it takes you to feel better depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your initial condition, how well your body responds to the treatment and how diligently you adhere to the treatment protocol. As we are treating the underlying cause of your health issues, not just the symptoms, it may take a little time to see the positive results. If your health issue is particularly chronic, the healing is taken slowly to avoid any exaccerbation of your symptoms.
