What it the difference between Symptomatic Care and Corrective Care treatment plans?
These are two different types of treatment plans that may be offered in your consultation depending on your presenting health condition.
A Symptomatic Care treatment plan supports your body whilst assisting to relieve your symptoms. This can be all that is needed to give you lasting relief from your condition and to bring back balance and health to your body.
A Corrective Care treatment plan is needed in more serious and long standing health complaints. This treatment plan digs deeper and identifies what is driving your health condition and then assists your body in repairing the damage which is causing your disease or health complaint.
Additional questionnaires and specific testing such as live blood analysis are usually required in your personalised corrective care treatment plan.
What is the difference between a naturopath and a medical doctor?
A medical doctor treats the symptoms of your disease with drugs that they hope will relieve your symptoms.
A naturopath looks at the cause of your disease and uses various lifestyle changes, diet modifications, herbs, nutritional supplementation and a range of other treatments to rebalance your body to get it back on the journey to good health. Drugs may offer you some relief from your symptoms, however they usually have negative side affects and generally need to be taken for many years.
Unfortunately drugs only suppress your symptoms and do not treat the underlying cause of your health issue(s).
Naturopathic medicine however, gets to the root cause of your health issue(s) and uses treatments such as lifestyle changes, diet modifications, herbs and nutritional supplementation to assist your body in healing itself.
If I see a naturopath does this mean that I don’t need a medical doctor?
Naturopaths and doctors view health from different angles but should be able to work together to benefit your health. If your doctor won’t work with your naturopath to improve your health and decrease your dependency on drugs then I would suggest you find another doctor that will.
For any life threatening health issues such as a heart attack or a major bacterial infection, medical intervention is absolutely necessary.
After the seriousness of the health issue has passed, naturopathic medicine can then help your body to repair itself to optimal health.
Should you have had your disease for a long period of time you may find naturopathic medicine to be a highly beneficial treatment in gently nurturing your body back to full health.
NET is a stress reduction technique, unfinished stress responses can get stuck in our body and NET helps connect the pieces so we can finish the process and release the old patterns.
Stress responses affect our health such as anger, grief, fear to name a few. These affect us long after the event that caused them, when our body fails to let go of these responses we find ourselves with unexplained aversions, self-sabotaging behaviours, destructive beliefs, phobias and many chronic physical problems.
We use NET to identify and help you let go of “stuck” mind-body stress patterns.n While most responses are perfectly normal, when unresolved, they sometimes produce behaviours years later that are counter productive to our health.
If we’re in a weakened state due to poor nutrition, stress or physical trauma,m everyday responses may not resolve naturally. Later in our lives when we experience a similar situation, the old response pattern can kick in. We rarely see the link between the past event and our present situation. NET can help identify the unresolved event and release the lingering charge, it is a safe, effective and natural way to instantly resolve long standing health problems that have a mind-body stress component.
Does everyone have stuck stress patterns?
Yes, while our emotions bring richness to our lives, the residual charge of stuck stress patterns can diminish our health, affect our relationships and sabotage our success.
Why are stuck stress patterns stored in the body?
No one knows for sure, it seems that some stress responses don’t properly resolve at times when our body’s resistance is compromised. NET helps find these unresolved patterns and help you finally them in a healthy way.
How is NET done?
Finding and resolving these stuck patterns or memory loops is done with the help of a manual muscle test. This helps to determine if your body is in harmony with a particular concept or idea that is linked to an unresolved event. You’ll form a mental picture of the original triggering event, and your body will assume a state similar to the way it originally reacted. Then your or the practitioner will contact a specific body point that will help release the unresolved pattern linked to the event.
After the correction, many patients report feeling that a heavy weight has been lifted from their shoulder. You are always in control and can stop the session safely if your uncomfortable.
Does NET take the place of psychotherapy?
No. Locating and resolving stuck patterns does not take the place of counselling, analysis or other types of therapy. Actually, many psychotherapists use NET in their practice and we make appropriate referrals as necessary.
Why are the homepathic remedies sometimes recommended?
Unresolved, long standing negatively charged patterns can often deplete or weaken affected tissues. The remedies we use help promote healing and the return of balance and harmony.
