The foundation of Natural Medicine and Naturopathy is the philosophy of the ‘healing power of nature’.
This means that the body has its own healing ability within and with the help of naturopathic treatments and supportive lifestyle choices, the body can repair itself and recover from illness, returning to a healthy and supportive environment.
Nutrition is essential for our well-being. Adequate nutrition relies not only on healthy food, but the body’s physiological processes and lifestyle. Adequate nutrition and supplementation are both important to supporting the body’s health and vitality. Both modern day farming practices and environmental factors impact on the nutritional quality of foods that we eat. Thus, specialised consultation to tailor nutrition and supplementation is key.
Medical Training Therapy is an active form of therapy that utilises a range of specialty exercises including stretching, strengthening, co-ordination and fitness training to build up strength, mobility and freedom of movement in the body.
If we lose our proprioception due to injury, operation or as part of the ageing process, proprioceptive training can support the patient to rebuild their balance, strength, confidence and body awareness.
At Total Health our approach to Natural Performance Optimisation focuses on bringing an athlete as near as possible to his or her physiological limit of performance through biological, energetic and naturopathic means, in co-ordination with an optimal training program.
Our bodies are exposed to many external and internal toxins at any given time. The human body detoxes throughout the day and night, and at times needs tailored and specialised support due to our lifestyle, environment and physiology. Therefore, safe and effective detoxing is crucial and should be considered as part of a health maintenance routine. Detoxification and weight management often go hand-in-hand. Supporting your body’s natural weight is important for vitality, quality of living and fitness for life.
