Healing through the power of nature.
Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine that uses a range of natural therapies to support healing and maintain a state of optimum wellness.
Naturopaths take a holistic approach to treatment by addressing all areas of a client’s life, and diving beyond symptom management to treat the underlying causes of ill-health and disease.
Here at CK Health, our team of naturopaths in Newcastle is led by CK Health founder Cody Kennedy, whose qualifications include a research degree in Complementary Medicines Management. We are passionate about delivering evidence-based natural treatments to people seeking to return to optimal wellbeing.
Backed by ancient wisdom and fuelled by the power of botanicals and other gifts derived from Mother Nature, naturopathic medicine can prevent disease and slow down the progression and development of existing conditions. Naturopathy is widely recognised and is commonly used in conjunction with mainstream medicine.
We currently offer naturopathic consults drawing upon the modalities below, depending on your personal health needs and wellness goals:
Nutrition is the cornerstone of naturopathy. Research shows that what we eat greatly impacts our health, and clinical nutrition utilises food to maintain optimal health and treat illness. Common conditions can often be alleviated with an improved diet, while dietary modifications can be the key to alleviating chronic health problems.
Plant substances are powerful medicines that are both safe and effective when used correctly. In fact, many synthetic drugs were originally derived from plants. The use of plants as medicines dates back hundreds of years and across many cultures; and in modern times scientific studies have backed the efficacy of herbal medicines. Herbs can be taken as a tea, in liquid form or a tablet.
Treating the body as a whole and addressing issues such as stress, sleep, exercise, diet and mental health are the basic principles of good health. All of these things contribute to our longevity; and learning strategies that are tailored to your particular lifestyle and situation can be the key to disease prevention and your overall wellbeing.
Functional testing (not used with all clients)
Functional medicine is a way of assessing the body and its function so that imbalances can be corrected, and optimal health restored. Unlike mainstream medicine, which often tends to apply band-aid style solutions, functional medicine aims to restore the body so that it can heal itself. This style of medicine may include testing to identify underlying causes of imbalances and disease. Our Newcastle naturopaths offer tests including gut testing, heavy metal testing, MTHFR, pyrroles, food intolerance testing, liver function and more. We can also review any bloods done by a GP.
