My Perth Naturopath Explains – What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy (also known as naturopathic medicine or natural medicine) is an eclectic alternative medical system that focuses on natural remedies and the body's innate and vital ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathic philosophy favors a holistic approach and minimal use of drugs or surgery. Naturopathy comprises many different treatment modalities to identify health issues and provide treatment options that help the body regenerate and regain balance and strength. Natural medicine guides the body back to a state of balance and optimal function to fight off and prevent illness.

At My Perth Naturopath our naturopaths use a range of modalities to identify health issues within the body. These modalities include:

Hemaview or Live Blood Screening

Live Blood Screening is a fascinating examination of your blood that analyzes your health status. Hemaview involves high resolution microscopic observation of live blood cells. A drop of blood is taken from the patient's fingertip, placed on a glass plate and viewed via a high powered microscope on a video screen. Observations are made on variations in the size, shape, ratios and structure of the red cells, white cells, platelets and other structures in your blood.

You may have had blood tests before, but nothing compares to seeing your own blood live on a screen in front of you. Have your blood checked today to discover the real state of your health.

VLA Bio-Impedence Technology or Cellular Health Analysis
Bioimpedence Analysis is a scientifically validated test that involves passing a low voltage electrical current through your body via leads connected to your hands and feed. It is totally painless and completely safe.

The results provide insight into aspects of your health such as how much fat and muscle you have in your body. This assists your practitioner to design a program specifically suited to your needs, including recommending nutritional supplements, exercise programs and dietary advice which will give your body the building blocks for maximum health and energy.


Iridology (Iris Analysis)
The coloured part of the eye is examined through a highly magnified torch. A map of the body is used as an overlay over the iris and the practitioner looks at different colours and shapes to determine areas of weakness in your body. Through the analysis of the iris, the individual’s whole body can be assessed in relation to organ system strengths and weaknesses.

Tongue and Nail Diagnostic
My Perth Naturopaths are trained in observing signs evident on the tongue and nails, which reflect the state of your internal health and organ function.

Salivary Hormone Testing
Hormonal imbalance underlies many reproductive disorders for both men and women and can play a role in autoimmune disease and diseases associated with ageing, such as Cardiovascular Disease, Osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

Hair Mineral Analysis
A virgin section of hair is cut (roughly a dessertspoon) and sent off to be analysed.
Results will be returned within 2-3 weeks providing information about mineral levels, ratios and deficiencies including: Mineral levels of Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Boron, Manganese, Mercury and Aluminium etc.

The Hair Mineral Analysis will also provide an extensive report regarding any heavy metal toxicity. Heavy metal toxicity can be responsible for many health conditions. If required, your practitioner will go through this with you and discuss options for heavy metal detoxification.

 At My Perth Naturopath our naturopaths use a range of natural treatment options to address any health issues that have been identified within the body. These treatment options include:

Nutrition and Lifestyle play a crucial role in health. The correct balance of foods and good water alone can heal. Having an understanding of nutrition so to create a balance in each individual is essential.

Herbal Medicine
Herbal Medicine is a traditional and very effective system of medicine which uses the healing properties derived from plants and plant extracts to treat disorders and maintain wellbeing.

Flower Essences Therapy
Flower Essence Therapies are a gentle and safe way to treat imbalance on the physical and emotional aspects. They are subtle yet powerful and can be used for a variety of complaints ranging from physical injury to sleep problems and self esteem issues.

Homoeopathy, from the Greek words homoeos (similar) and pathos (suffering) works on the theory that “like cures like”. A good analogy is to liken it to the medical treatment used for snake bite. If you are bitten by a snake, taking the anti-venom from that snake, will provide your body with anti-bodies and therefore assist your body to fight against the poisonous venom. Homoeopathy is especially useful when treating babies and children because it is a safe and gentle treatment.
