Nutritional Therapy and Naturopathy
With Jan Davidson, Adv Dip NHF Dip ASK
Nutritional therapy and naturopathy are holistic therapies used to treat people suffering from a wide range of symptoms that can manifest on a physical, mental and emotional level. Although many people are now becoming interested in a healthy diet, most do not realise the true therapeutic value of food and naturopathic techniques, which can be used to reverse the course of disease to regain optimum health and vitality. Naturopathy is a system of health care which promotes the body’s own self-healing mechanism. It uses techniques such as hydrotherapy, the use of enemas, castor oil packing, dry skin brushing, fasting and others.

What happens before and during a consultation?
Prior to the consultation a case history questionnaire will be sent to you which you must complete and return to your practitioner before initial consultation. A case history questionnaire is very detailed and asks questions about your health and lifestyle from birth to your current age including your ancestry. You will need to spend time (at least an hour) completing this and may need to ask your relatives for help answering some of the questions.
During the consultation information from the questionnaire is used to put together a treatment plan consisting of naturopathic techniques, hydration and diet. In most sessions Kinesiology is used to test the body, balance muscles or make corrections. In some cases, a person may be too sick or in too much pain to be able to test well using kinesiology and it may be necessary to implement other naturopathic techniques and nutritional changes first in order to improve health so that kinesiology can be used in the future. Following your session time is spent creating your specific treatment plan consisting of naturopathic techniques, hydration and diet, which is emailed to you within 48 hours of the session along with some resources and instructions to help you.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required depends entirely on the health and progress of the individual client. At first you will be seen once a month usually for 2 or 3 treatments. Sometimes 2 or 3 treatments are enough although it is more likely that you will need up to 5 or 6 sessions to gain maximum potential of the treatments and diet changes. After the first 2 or 3 treatments it may be possible to go for longer between sessions (such as 2 or 3 months) as you will have a plan of changes that you will need to pursue.
