Not feeling your best? Poor digestion or Low Energy?
The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and cause and prevention of disease. – Thomas Edison
Naturopathy is a holistic therapy and complementary to orthodox medicine. The naturopathic approach to treating is by considering the individual on three equally important levels in health; the physical, the emotional and the environmental aspects. If there is an imbalance in one or more of these areas there could be a possibility for disease (the ‘dis’ – ‘ease’ of the body). This dynamic equilibrium(dynamic balance) is called the TRIAD OF HEALTH.
Naturopathy is a system of healthcare that has been growing in popularity in the last several years although it has been around since the beginning of medicine! Naturopathy can be defined as the holistic approach to healthcare without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Naturopathy emphasizes health restoration and treatment, as well as the prevention of disease. Naturopathic techniques vary hugely and include Chinese medicine, Herbal remedies, Nutrition, Hydrotherapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Therapeutic Massage Acupuncture, Exercise, Massage and Joint Manipulations.

Our Naturopathic Approach
Here at Ashley James Health our approach is to keep it simple. There are many approaches to the same problem and we could apply everything we know all in one go but this could end up confusing people. So we start you with the basics, keeping everything practical and achievable.
Once you have the basics in place we may then add in refinements and more information. One thing that we have found our clients like about out approach is that we never cut things out of your diet or lifestyle without being able to offer things to replace them with, so they never feel restricted with their changes.
In our naturopathic consultations we use Nutrition, Exercise, Dietary Supplements, Stress Management, Counselling, Massage, Lymphatic Drainage and Hydrotherapy.

Conditions We Have Worked With
The naturopathic approach to disease is to treat the person as a whole, to look at and treat the causes, not the symptoms. Therefore many health conditions could be worked with but it always helps to give people an idea of the most common reasons people visit us;
- Digestive issues; IBS, Diarrhoea, Constipation, Acid Reflux, Indigestion.
- Arthritis; Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis
- Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Weight Loss
It is important to note here that Naturopaths do not “heal” people, they simply give you the tools you need to make the necessary changes to give your body what it needs to heal itself.
