Naturopathy Central Coast

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a practice of natural medicine that focuses on the patient as a whole in order to treat underlying causes of disease within the body and bring the individual to full and lasting health. An individual's health and wellbeing can be affected by many lifestyle factors, which can lead to disorder within the body and chronic disease.

Naturopathy is based upon the principle that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and utilises natural remedies and methods to assist the body's natural healing potential to restore balance and prevent disease.

Each Naturopathic treatment is personalised to a patients requirements and involves extensive analysis to get to the root of any issues. Naturopaths focus on healing at a core level and educating the patient to make lifestyle changes that prevent further health issues.

The practise of Naturopathy employs a wide variety of natural treatments including Herbal Medicines, Homoeopathy, Nutritional & Dietary advice and Lifestyle advice.

Naturopaths work alongside allopathic medicine and understand up to date biomedical research.

James Marr, Naturopath Central Coast, Gosford, Erina and TerrigalFrom a previous career as a TV and radio producer in the advertising industry, James experienced the chronic stress, sleep deprivation, and ill health that plague so many people today.

Disillusioned with the lack of answers in the modern medical approach, James decided to take charge of his own wellbeing and use nutrition, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes to turn his poor health around. One of these lifestyle changes all those years ago was to quit his career in advertising and study Naturopathy, so that he could help others achieve the vitality he had himself experienced.

James believes in a truly integrated approach to health, using the ancient wisdom of herbal medicine and the application of lifestyle counselling alongside modern diagnostic screening and targeted nutrition to heal the body.

James has seen countless individuals with genuine concerns about their ability to live not only a long life, but one of true vitality. Through a deep understanding of the complexities of each individual case, James has helped restore the wellbeing of his patients in a profound and lasting way.
