Nutrition & Homeopathy
Nutritional Therapy & Homeopathy are the use of natural medicine, dietary adaptations and supplementation to manage and support recovery from chronic conditions.
We can recommend supplements which will benefit healing and wellbeing in general - but also have the in-house expertise to cater to more specific needs.
Nutritional therapy appointments can be made either through a referral from another healthcare provider in the clinic or through reception directly with a therapist. This includes patients who are not already attending Southcote.
We aim to help with a range of conditions from medical conditions already diagnosed or with recurring health concerns, which are persistent and aggravating your everyday life.
The nutritional therapy practitioners at Southcote work closely with the other practitioners to identify and advise on any obvious dietary interventions that may help speed the patient's return to health.
Where further intervention is likely to be beneficial, such as supplementation with natural vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and some herbal remedies, our nutritional therapy practitioners are qualified to assess the individual's overall health, medical history and conduct biochemical tests to prescribe personalised supplementation programmes.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’.
In other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large amounts. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people suffering from sleeplessness and agitation.
Why choose homeopathy?
Homeopathic medicine allows the body to physically and emotionally recover without causing more damage. A homeopath will consider the physical, emotional and mental symptoms taking the view that they are all interconnected angles of the patients suffering. This is what makes homeopathy a truly holistic and refined art.
