The benefits of Naturopathy
Naturopathy focuses on the whole person, rather than the symptoms of a particular conditions or disease, wherby the root cause of
the problem will be identified and treated.
WHAT IS NATUROPATHY
Naturopathy is a system of health care which
encourages and promotes the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms
using an eclectic approach.
At the Dublin Holistic Centre, our Natropaths specialize in Acupuncture & Massage using Iridology, tongue and pulse diagnosis. Naturopathy believes that mind, body and soul are connected and that the Vital Force, Qi or life energy within us, will heal abnormal or disfunctional cells in the body, by strenghtening the body's own defenses.

An initial consultation with a Naturopath normally takes about an hour to 1.5hrs, during which time the Naturopath will ask questions about the person’s condition, medical history, diet and lifestyle, and any conventional treatments that they may be taking. The Naturopath may then use Iridology (looking into the iris of the eye), or tongue and pulse diagnosis and nail diagnosis to get a better picture of the complete health state of the client. If needed, pathology testing such as hair, stool, or blood analysis may be recommended.
Once all of the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated that addresses all areas of the person’s life, providing the body with the optimum chance to heal itself. The treatment plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, Bach Flower Remedies, Tissue Salts, basic herbal and homeopathic treatments, or other suitable remedies.
A Naturopath may also refer the client to other practitioners as part of an integrated health care approach.
