Some of our new patients first ask, “I’ve seen a naturopath before and didn’t get the results I’m looking for. So, why see a naturopath at Narayani Wellness?'
Like most naturopaths our approach is focused on the whole patient, however where we really shine is in our interest and experience with functional medicine, gut health and healing and prioritising the mind body connect.
Functional medicine means looking at the body and what is happening at a cellular, chemical reaction or micro-organism level. This approach means we can really get to the core issues of what is happening and address them effectively, or even better prevent illness and disease.
For example, if someone was to come to see us with long standing fatigue we have the ability to look at the efficiency to which our cells make energy. We can then see if we need to support with a specific nutrient/s to help a pathway work better.
This strategy helps take out a lot of the guess work so that we can better tailor treatment specific to your needs. It also means that we can apply the latest research and innovative treatments to provide faster solutions and more effective management.
What are we good at?
Well, we specialise in gut health & healing and love approaching most complaints with this as a foundation, as it is core to our entire health and well-being. From immune dysfunction (recurrent illnesses, autoimmunity), mood issues to fatigue and digestive concerns, optimising gut health is essential in getting better and thriving.
Mood and emotional wellbeing is another specialty of ours, which is no surprise as it has ties to the gut. We recognise that limited thoughts or stuck belief patterns can have a profound impact on your physical health. It is our biochemistry (our body's processes) that are the interface between our mind (what we think and how we feel) and physical illness. We are able to utilise functional testing to better address your biochemistry which can help you better deal with stress and overcome blocks in your emotional wellbeing.
Holistic skin naturopathy is another specialty of ours and we approach this from the inside out and the outside in. Achieving a great glow relates to many internal factors including gut health and when we achieve luminous skin our emotional wellbeing can really lift! We combine functional medicine with non-toxic effective skin care products to achieve great results.
