Practitioner – Jocelyn Carter
Naturopathy and naturopathic medicine is a health care system that take an holistic approach to healing. It is suitable for all age groups.
A Naturopath draws on a range of different treatment methods to use the body’s own ability to heal itself.
Naturopathy seeks to find and address the underlining cause of disease and illness, rather than treating only the symptoms.
Naturopathic practices are firmly based in science and have a long standing traditional wisdom.
A naturopath will educate, empower and motivate the patient, to take responsibility for their own ongoing health and wellbeing.
Each patient is treated as an individual with a complex interaction of physical and lifestyle factors effecting health and wellbeing.
