Naturopathy is a gentle, safe, holistic modality of health care that utilises a range of therapies, with an underlying philosophy that the body is capable of healing itself when given the right 'building blocks' to do so.
Whilst conventional medicine generally focuses upon diagnosing and masking the symptoms of a disease or condition, naturopathy seeks to prevent disease from occurring in the first place, whilst also looking for and addressing the underlying cause(s) of any existing health troubles. Environmental and nutritional factors are taken into consideration, and the body is treated as a whole, providing both immediate relief from ailments as well as lifelong solutions to improve overall health and longevity.
At Own Health, Mikaela's naturopathy services focus upon the use of evidence-based nutrition and herbal medicine to support the appropriate biochemical pathways, optimise epigenetic expression, and foster the body's innate ability to heal and thrive.
High quality practitioner-only supplements are prescribed when necessary, but Mikaela's primary focus is to guide you in adjusting your diet and lifestyle so that supplementation is only required as a short-term 'boost', rather than being a life-long necessity for achieving and maintaining optimal health.
Mikaela is a member of the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association, which ensures that she has undergone appropriate training and complies with the highest standards of practice.
