Naturopathic Principles

Different types of alternative medicine share a common principle; they aim at normalising, stimulating and balancing bodily functions through natural means without endangering the subject.

All genetic, family, environmental factors, etc. are taken into consideration to understand the uniqueness of the subject and help them find their way to a healthy life. The profession demands the knowledge and the know–how in many complementary disciplines. Knowing how to use these wisely is the foundation of the ART of a Natural Health Practitioner. The key principles are :

  • Prevention is preferable to cure.
  • The underlying cause is identified and not the disease.
  • The whole person is treated physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
  • The individual is unique; each person responds differently
  • Ill health is a result of the internal disorder of the body.

    I had the pleasure of working with Florence in 2010 for both weight loss and also fertility help and can happily recommend her approach and advice.

    I had great success with the weight loss advice that she gave me, losing almost 2 stone in the space of approximately 4 months before then falling pregnant. I worked with Florence remotely as it wasn't possible to travel to see her at the time, but even with not being able to have face to face consultations I found the process excellent. I had both email and telephone consultations throughout the time I worked with her and felt that she quickly got a very good grasp of the issues affecting me and the causes of the extra weight. I received a very comprehensive explanation of the foods that she believed were triggering negative responses and an excellent explanation as to why these may specifically affect me. The weight loss program was extremely easy to follow and by sticking to her advice I saw results quite quickly. The follow up consultations were always very useful and supportive and I felt very positive about the experience.

    Florence has a very easy personality to work with and, I feel, a genuine empathy with people, which makes for a very good connection and trust between herself and the client. I wouldn't hesitate to seek her advice again and can happily say that on both issues I worked with her for she was 100% successful in her diagnosis and approach.

    "Initially, I needed help because I’d put on weight. When I contacted Florence she quickly figured out that weight wasn’t my only problem…

    After running through her questionnaire, she took time to analyse my situation and provided a clear interpretation of the underlying issues. She was able to home in on the key areas where I needed guidance and explained in detail what natural remedies were needed and the steps I should follow to improve my health.

    Florence’s relaxed, consultative approach is very reassuring and we developed a strong rapport and trust between us. She does not push for drastic results as dietary improvements and well being can only be accomplished with time. Dedication, knowledge and professionalism are her principal qualities”.

    "Dear Florence,

    It was lovely meeting you last week and even lovelier now to tell you that your advice regarding the herbal medicine and essential oils turned out to be a Godsend for me.

    I knew, of course, that at my age, a sprightly 77, having problems with a build-up of mucus over night is par for the course. And I was getting used to the horrors of clearing my nasal passages and throat each morning.

    But your advice to take a few drops of plant tincture in a little water 2 or 3 times a day has done the trick. I'm a new man. Just what my wife wanted.

    Thanks again."

    “On meeting Florence it was clear to see how passionate and knowledgable she was in the field of Naturopathy. She has an amazing ability to get to the route of the problem and offering real life solutions - by which I mean you don't have a restricted 'cardboard' diet. The simplest of solutions and techniques have given me a renewed energy, without the constraints of the usual faddy diets and regimes. I cannot recommend Florence highly enough - she is an expert in her field, extremely diligent and a thoroughly lovely lady!” June 14, 2011

    “Florence did a detailed analysis of my current physical state and from that provided a fantastic report on what I needed to do to improve my health and well being. I have now changed the way I eat, I am now doing regular exercise and I'm feeling so much better and more energised! It helped immensely that Florence as personable and non-judgemental and gave encouragement where encouragement was needed, even though I was perhaps some what reluctant at times. Thank you!” May 31, 2011
