Optimal health in an urban, demanding environment
Living in the city and staying healthy may seem irreconcilable in our day and age, what with unnaturally persistent stressors that put our bodies and minds to the test - not to mention environmental toxins and endocrine disruptors that we daily ingest, breathe and apply on our skin.
Naturopathy's wise knowledge combined with the latest scientific discoveries help me provide those who haven't yet succumbed to the temptation of settling in a less fast paced area with the means to reach peak health and energy.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TERRAIN
Hippocrates (460 av. J.-C. - 377 B.-C.) is reported to have said that "all disease begins in the gut". More recently, the French scientist Antoine Béchamp (1816-1908) asserted that "the microbe is nothing; the terrain is everything", thereby going against Louis Pasteur's microbe theory. He put emphasis on the environment in which germs lived and not germs per se so that if the terrain was balanced, then germs could not thrive. Naturopathy aims to correct and improve an individual's terrain and in turn, quality of life.
CONSULTATIONS & VITALITY ASSESSMENTS
During a consultation, the naturopath assesses the client's vitality and then recommends a made-to-measure lifestyle program in accordance with their temperament, all the while bearing in mind any possible constraints.
