What does a Naturopath do?
Naturopaths are detectives, problem solvers, educators and health coaches!
The Detective & Problem Solver
A naturopath works to discover and uncover the cause/s to your health issue or condition. Whether is an acute health condition such as a cold or flu or something more chronic such as Type II Diabetes or IBS, the aim is to resolve this as easily and effortlessly as possible. This can take a few weeks and for some years. Naturopaths care about your health and therefore ask many questions and perform different tests so they can formulate the best individualised treatment program for you. Karen Green uses current scientific research to back up her treatment plans. A Naturopaths job however is not to diagnose. We like to work in with your doctor and other health professionals.
