What we do

Nature

Naturopathy is the art, science, and philosophy of nature. It is an holistic approach to health and wellness based on the unique qualities of each individual. It uses the principal that our body has an inherent ability to heal itself, given the right environment.

Naturopathy at our South Devon clinic is guided by the following founding principles:

  • First, do no harm
  • Utilise the healing power of nature
  • Treat the cause of imbalance, not just the symptoms
  • Treat the whole person; mind, body and spirit

Science

We use the most advanced screening technology available today. Our screening system will reveal disturbances on all levels: structural, biochemical, energetic and emotional.

Additionally, we use a highly powered microscope to evaluate a single drop of blood, which contains a mass of information to assess an individual's current state of balance / imbalance.

What we offer

At our South Devon naturopathic clinic, we offer:

  • Food Sensitivity Testing
  • Allergy Advice
  • State-of-the-art Health Screening
  • Cellular Analysis
  • Naturopathic Consultations
  • Personalised Retreats

We have achieved outstanding success with a wide range of symptoms; such as disruptive menopause, hormone imbalance, skin conditions, allergies and food intolerances, fatigue and ME, poor immune function, viruses, IBS, diabetes, parasites, candida, stress, sleep problems, migraines, low libido and more.

Devon's allergy advice clinic

Allergies plague thousands across Devon and many are less obvious than a strong reaction to nuts.

The human body can also be intolerant to a number of food types, environmental stimuli and substances - knowing which your body is negatively affected by is the first step to cutting them out of your life.

The difference can be massive, which is why we enjoy offering allergy advice and food intolerance tests as part of our repertoire.

7 Reasons you should consider oil pulling

But first…what is it?

Oil pulling dates back over 3,000 years and is an ancient Ayurvedic ritual.
It involves placing cold-pressed oil into your mouth (olive oil and sesame work, but I find coconut oil tastes better).

Swish the oil around in your mouth for between 5 & 20 minutes (pulling it between your teeth) before spitting it out. Don’t swallow as that defeats the point and you’ll be ingesting the toxins you want to eliminate.

Then rinse your mouth and give your teeth a good brush.

It really is that easy!

Why oil pulling?

The mouth is home to millions of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other toxins; the oil acts like a cleanser, pulling out the nasties before they get a chance to spread throughout the body.

Here are my top 7 reasons for oil pulling:

1. Whitens teeth

There is no need for chemical teeth whitening strips when oil pulling works just as well!
The oil possesses natural antibiotic and antiviral properties that brighten and clean teeth, keeping them pearly white.
(One trick I know for white teeth is to brush them with coconut oil mixed with a teaspoon of turmeric and use it as tooth paste – you will be surprised at how effective this is for whitening your teeth!)

2. Increases energy

When our immune system is put to work in clearing out toxic waste from our body, it drains our energy levels. Removing the noxious culprits in the first instance by oil pulling lowers the amount of work our body has to do to function, which leaves us feeling a whole lot better.

3. Detoxes the body

Germs in the body are much like poison – causing inflammation and leading to dis-ease. The gateway to the body for such contamination is the mouth. Therefore, in removing the toxins at the source before they get a chance to spread, the body undergoes a complete detox.

4. Aids hormonal changes

Without having to compete with foreign substances, hormones can behave as they should, functioning to their best ability without being thrown off balance.

5. Reduces headaches

When the body is under toxic stress, headaches and migraines occur. It is nature’s way of asking for some time out to recover. By eliminating bacteria from the body via oil pulling, headaches can be avoided.

6. Keeps the skin clear

The benefits even extend to your skin!
Removing toxins from the body that would otherwise make it into the bloodstream means the skin has a chance to shine. Rashes and skin issues like acne can often reduce dramatically, or even clear up completely, when oil pulling.

7. Promotes oral hygeine

Oil pulling is highly effective at reducing tooth cavities and at eradicating bad breath. Removing the Streptococcus mutans bacteria (an important player in tooth decay) as well as other microorganisms, oil pulling is great for oral health. It also helps with plaque-induced gingivitis.
Give it a go and see what you think!
