Naturopathy uses a combination of evidence based herbal and nutritional medicine which work in harmony with your body. A large part of Naturopathy is focused on patient centered treatment whereby it looks to address the cause of the symptoms to provide long lasting results. Naturopathy can assist in stress managment, sleep, mood, concentration, female hormones, immune system, inflammation, digestive issues (chronic and acute), menopause, cardiovascular health and more.
Meet Kirsty – our resident Naturopath
Kirsty Richardson is a qualified Naturopath who is passionate about helping people across all stages of life and and health. Trained in using evidence based herbal and nutritional medicine she can offer a unique treatment that is tailored to the individual and their needs. Alongside herbs and nutrients a large part of the treatment also focuses on diet and lifestyle advice, as sometimes this is the key to making the biggest difference.
Kirsty was drawn to Naturopathy as she strongly believes that when treating a person you need to understand all aspects of their life to try to understand what got them to where they are and what is contributing to their condition. Part of this is looking at treating the cause and not just the symptom. Kirsty is also a strong advocate in educating patients about their health so that they can feel empowered to make real changes.
Kirsty will be practicing at the Sum of Us Studio on Thursdays 2:30pm-8pm and Saturdays 9am-2pm. To make a booking or find out more visit her website: naturallyinterested.com.au
