Wellness is not just the absence of disease. It is about achieving optimal health, vitality and energy. My aim is to improve the energy and quality of health for each patient. Nutrition is essential to our well-being and our food is the fuel and nourishment for our vitality. We only have one body to live in.
In 1946 the World Health Organisation introduced a holistic definition of health for the first time, explaining it as a “state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”. This statement goes beyond explaining health in terms of physical restriction, but emphasises holistic health, taking into consideration the mind, body and soul connection.
Naturopathy endeavours to help each person attain a high level of energy and wellness physically, mentally and emotionally. I believe in the healing power of nature, and the concept of food being medicine, fuel and nourishment. It is core to our vitality and well-being. The mind, body and soul are connected and need to be nurtured, honoured and respected.
