Researchers have found that there is often an increase in stress hormones (such as cortisol) in people who have sleeping problems. Our Naturopath services are not addictive, that is the main benefit of using natural therapies for sleep maintenance. Even more importantly, Natural Medicines can help address the underlying causes of poor sleep such as nutritional deficiencies and stress.
Fatigue can interfere with your ability to perform at work, with personal relationships and can reduce enjoyment of life in general. Fatigue can be a sign of more serious problems and the underlying cause needs to be identified and resolved. Left untreated, fatigue creates a self-perpetuating downward spiral which can be very difficult to break.
IMMUNE SYSTEM PROBLEMS

By utilising one of our naturopath services you can strengthen your immune system. A strong immune system can help to protect you from potentially harmful invaders, such as viruses and bacteria, by recognising and responding to them as a threat. Immune system problems can also include: coughs, sinus infections, hay fever, allergies, auto immune conditions

If you answered ‘Yes’ to one or more of these questions, your body may be overburdened by toxicity.
Toxins can be environmental such as heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, food additives, drugs and pollutants which are present in air, food, and water we consume. Toxins can also be generated internally by ‘ unfriendly ‘ bacteria, yeasts, and parasites in your digestive system. These internally generated toxins are then absorbed into your blood stream, affecting your health and vitality. Your body has mechanisms for eliminating all these toxins, but these detoxification pathways can become overwhelmed if you produce, consume or absorb more toxins than you can get rid of.
A Natural detoxification program can be one of the most effective strategies for rapidly improving the state of your health as it will help clear toxins out of your body and leave you feeling healthy and energetic.
Stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, environmental factors, poor liver and thyroid function, gut dysbiosis, IBS, and nutritional deficiencies can disrupt hormone balance. Click for more.
