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.

Are you sleeping Mumma?

This is a Guest Blog from Christie of Embraced Mummas. She has two beautiful little girls and loves to share her knowledge of essential oils. 

We all know how important sleep is, especially for new mothers! But unfortunately it’s the mothers who get the least sleep in the family more often than not!Obviously babies need more sleep than children and adults but at a time when we should be getting the most restorative sleep, us mothers receive less! I am sure you all can relate to this!

Even though it can be hard to put that mobile down and turn off the TV, we really should be going to bed earlier and trying to get more sleep. Firstly, because as mothers, we know we will be up again in a few hours (or minutes!). Secondly, a lack of sleep can actually cause all sorts of physical and emotional problems including:

  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Poor digestion
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased focus and concentration
  • Increased frustration and irritability levels (which isn’t good when you have little ones to look after)
  • Compromised immune system
  • Higher likelihood of chronic or autoimmune conditions

Natural alternatives to help promote sleep

Essential oils, together with meditation or guided meditation can be a massive help if you are suffering from any of these things.

Guided mediation is such a simple and cheap solution to help you drift off into a peaceful sleep and there are a lot of apps available now which make it super easy. All you have to do is choose your mediation press play and relax! For me guided meditations are great because I have trouble clearing my mind at night. Listening to the person speak gives me something else to concentrate on and is really effective, although usually as soon as I am asleep my baby wakes up and I have to start all over again!

Essential Oils can also be used with or without meditation to assist in promoting restful sleep. They can be used aromatically, which could be in a diffuser, a spray bottle or a few drops of essential oils onto clothing or bedding before bed time. They can also be used topically on the forehead, back, shoulders, under nose and especially on the bottoms of feet. If you’re really lucky you could even get someone to give you a massage before bed time, there’s some wishful thinking! It is important to follow proper dilution ratios when applying essential oils onto the skin, especially for babies and children.

What essential oils promote sleep?

There are a number of essential oils that promote sleep as well as a range of blends made by varying companies, but these are the main ones known for this reason.

  • Lavender – calms, relaxes, and sedates
  • Vertiver – grounds and promotes tranquillity
  • Roman Chamomile – balances hormones, sedates, calms, and relaxes.

You could also use a combination of the above. It is important to figure out what works for you and what aromas you are drawn to. If you are experiencing any of the side effects due to a lack of sleep, essential oils can help with these too! If you would like more information please check out my Facebook Page.
