Naturopathy Treatments

Naturopaths use medicines derived from nature to achieve a state of optimum wellness. Naturopathic medicine can either prevent disease or slow down the progression and development of existing diseases. It is widely recognised and is used in conjunction with mainstream medicine. It is one of the fastest growing areas of natural therapies today.

CK Health provides its services to Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, and the entire Hunter Region. CK Health also conduct Skype consultations across the globe.

CLINICAL NUTRITION

Nutrition is the cornerstone of naturopathy. Food is used to maintain good health and treat illness. Research shows that food greatly impacts our health. Common conditions can be alleviated with a good diet. Many people will benefit greatly  with some simple dietary guidance. Some modification of the diet can be the key to alleviating a chronic health problem.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Plant substances are powerful medicines that are both safe and effective when used correctly. Many synthetic drugs were originally derived from plants. The use of plants as medicines dates back hundreds of years and across many cultures. Scientific research states how effective herbal medicine can be. Herbs can be taken as a tea, in liquid form or a tablet.

LIFESTYLE COUNSELLING

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. Learning simple strategies to allow you to work within the boundaries of your life can be the key to your general wellbeing and disease prevention.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

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 tends to apply a band aid over health problems, 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. These tests may include heavy metal testing, MTHFR, pyroles, food intolerance testing and liver function.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Massage is considered one of the oldest forms of healing therapy to be practiced on the body.  Remedial Massage has many known benefits. These benefits can include: pain relief, dysfunction prevention, increased circulation, rehabilitating physical function and improving mental health.  Shelle, at CK Health, uses body assessments, trigger point work and stretching so you get the most out of your massage. She provides Remedial Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Relaxation Massages.
