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.

How to take an Epsom Salt bath

But first why…

Epsom salts are perfect for detoxing your body. Using these salts in bathwater creates a process called reverse-osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and allows the magnesium and sulphates to enter into the body.

Magnesium and sulphates are important minerals for the body – they are used for the creation of over 325 of the enzymes that make our body tick!

Now you know, so relax and take a bath!

Relax and Unwind!

The first step is to give yourself at least 40 minutes. This is your time and you deserve it!

Also the first 20 minutes are used removing toxins, and for the second 20 minutes, the body absorbs the minerals in the bath water. So draw yourself a nice warm bath…

Add in the Epsom salts in the following amounts

• Children under 60 lbs: Add 1/2 cup of salts to a standard size bath
• Individuals between 60-100 lbs: Add 1 cup of salts to a standard size bath
• Individuals between 100-150 lbs: Add 1 1/2 cup of salts to a standard size bath
• Individuals between 150-200 lbs: Add 2 cups of salts to a standard size bath
• For every 50lbs larger – add in an additional 1/2 cup of salts.

Additional strategies to apply with an Epsom salt bath

Adding in a 1/2 cup of olive oil is also very good for the skin. The polyphenols soak into the skin and give extra antioxidant benefits.
Adding ginger or cayenne can increase your heat levels, which will help you to sweat out toxins. You can add anywhere from 1 tbsp to 1/2 a cup to stimulate sweating, and these herbs are loaded with antioxidants that will enhance the detoxification process as well.

Try to avoid using soap with an Epsom salt bath, as it can interfere with the action of the minerals and the detoxification process.

Afterwards

You may see that the water has changed colour – don’t worry this is a good sign that you’ve drawn out lots of toxins!

Take it steady after your bath and you’ll soon start to feel refreshed and relaxed.
