More about Balm Natural Health Services.

Naturopathy is a blend of ancient, traditional knowledge with the most recent, evidence based, scientific findings regarding health and wellbeing. It is a system of healthcare utilising natural, whole herbs and nutritional medications rather than strong pharmaceuticals, which may come with unwanted side effects.

It Naturopathy centres on the body's innate ability to heal itself and aims to treat the person as a whole rather than labelling them with a particular disease and giving the "one size fits all" treatment for that disease. It takes into account all of your symptoms, your full health history, your family history of illnesses, your blood type as well as your personality style, constitution and body type.

Further clues as to how your body is currently functioning are obtained from iris photographs and an examination of your nails, tongue and general hair and skin condition. From all of this information, a tailored treatment plan is formulated aimed at optimising internal physiological function and giving the body all the tools it needs in order to heal itself. This includes vitamin, mineral, nutritional and herbal medicines, lifestyle advice and small dietary adjustments.
