Naturopath

A Naturopath is a holistic practitioner qualified in a range of complementary therapies including Herbal medicine, Nutrition, Homeopathy, Bodywork and Iridology. This means that a detailed case study and assessment is made of every individual and a treatment plan provided using the most suitable treatments for that condition.

 

Amanda qualified as a Medical Herbalist from the University of Westminster, London in 2002 with a BSc (Hons) in Health Sciences and Herbal Medicine. Her training lasted five years and included 500 supervised clinic hours. Amanda also studied for a degree in Complementary Therapies which further included the study of Bodywork, Homeopathy, Reflexology and Nutritional Therapy. She later studied Iridology which is the interpretation of the irides (the coloured area of the eyes) to gain information of the pre-dispositions in health, an individual may have inherited, and to aid in diagnosis.

Her particular interest is preconception care and infertility; advising couples on preparing for pregnancy to optimise chances of a healthy baby. She further provides support for families after birth with good nutrition and natural remedies specialising in providing solutions arising with newborns. She has successfully been treating conditions such as reflux, colic and eczema for over 10 years. When meeting the family, Amanda often finds that she is also able to treat other members of the family with herbal medicine and nutritional advice, particularly new mums that may be finding it hard to establish milk supply and need guidance on healthy eating plans.

 

Herbal Medicine uses plant remedies for healing, both in the treatment of disease, to promote better health and to restore balance and harmony in an individual. Most common conditions that would be treated by a GP (family doctor) can be helped using herbal medicine. Conditions that respond well to herbal medicine include:

• Digestive problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
• Stress, anxiety and depression.
• Sleep disturbances such as insomnia.
• Menstrual, menopausal and hormonal-related conditions such as

   Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
• Asthma, hayfever and allergies
• Skin conditions including eczema, acne and psoriasis.
• Osteo and rheumatoid arthritis

 

An in-depth medical history will be taken to identify the underlying cause of the problem. A photograph of the eyes (irides) may be taken to support diagnosis. Additional physical examinations may also be carried out where necessary and blood pressure and pulse taken when treating adults. Additional tests may be recommended to confirm diagnosis.

 

Advice on dietary changes and lifestyle will usually be given.

A prescription of herbal medicines will be tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. This will usually consist of a bottle of herbal tinctures for adults. Glycerite formulas are used with babies and young children. Where relevant, dried herbs, ointments, creams, powders, capsules or oils will be given. Vitamin supplements will be recommended where appropriate.

Follow-up appointments will be book according to your needs. The herbal prescription may be modified at each appointment according to the individual’s requirements.
