Naturopathy is a form of complementary medicine which assists in creating wellness in individuals. Our highly skilled Health First naturopathic team fully assesses your health status by drawing on a number of diagnostic techniques and tests. These include hormonal, metabolic and allergy testing. The results of these assessments form the basis of therapy, which may include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine and other natural remedies, in addition to dietary guidance and lifestyle techniques. Our naturopaths treat acute and chronic health conditions in people of all age groups.

Naturopathy is guided by six foundational principles, including:

  • The healing power of nature
  • First do no harm
  • Find and treat the cause, not only the symptom
  • Always treat the whole person, not only their disease
  • Education
  • Prevention
