Wellness from the best Naturopaths in Melbourne

Naturopathy can provide a natural alternative to improve your health or can complement your current medical treatment, working in conjunction with your GP/specialist.

naturopathy is a holistic treatment that combines modern medicine and nature to support the wellness of the body, mind, and spirit. the goal of naturopathy is not just to address the symptoms of illness but to find its root cause to help you heal.

Under the guidance and supervision of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA), Naturopaths observe these six principles to ensure the best health and healing for patients:

  1. Do no harm.
  2. Recognise the healing power of nature.
  3. Find and treat the cause whenever possible, not only the symptoms.
  4. Teach patients how to take responsibility for their own health.
  5. Treat the whole person.
  6. Focus on education and prevention.

history of naturopathy

Naturopathy can be traced back to Ancient Greece and its philosophers. However, the naturopathy we know today can be linked back to 18th- and 19th-century “natural cures”, which involved the use of light, air, water, herbs, and food to achieve wellness.

modern naturopathy

Today, naturopathy in Melbourne is practised by licensed Doctors of Naturopathy, employing traditional herbal and nutritional methods in the pursuit of holistic wellness.

In Australia, acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners are registered health professionals under AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency). AHPRA places limitations on what we can advertise, so we cannot list many of the common conditions that acupuncture traditionally treats. If you would like to know if acupuncture can help you, please give us a call at the clinic, and we would be more than happy to discuss and answer any questions that you may have.

what issues can naturopathy address?

Naturopathic doctors work with other medical specialists to fine-tune the best non-invasive and natural ways to address health concerns. These can stem from factors like a patient’s diet, lifestyle, environment, stress levels, and relationships. Naturopathy can treat conditions such as:

  • Digestive or gastrointestinal issues
  • Low immunity
  • Fatigue and adrenal exhaustion
  • Mood and stress disorders
  • Hormonal issues & premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Reproductive health and fertility issues
  • Skin, sleep, and weight concerns
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Allergies
  • Chronic health concerns
  • Children’s health

Healing and recovery come from a thorough examination of the patient’s medical history and the use of traditional herbal treatments with the medical understanding of the body’s processes.

seeing naturopaths for the first time

If you’ve never seen naturopaths for health concerns before, you may be wondering what happens during your first session, and how things happen after that. It may have been suggested to you to see naturopaths near you if you have not been getting answers from your regular practitioner or are continuing to not feel like yourself.

Your first session with a naturopathic doctor is a discovery session. They will ask you questions regarding your health concerns, obtain medical history surrounding this health concern and others, and ask you what you are looking to get out of the session with them.

For many people, they come in with one or two chronic health concerns and are simply looking for a different way to treat their issue. They want to feel alive again, and no longer need to deal with chronic pain or other symptoms. They are looking for a way to feel balanced and that’s where Balance Complementary Medicine steps in.

Does it sound like you could benefit from seeing naturopaths about your health concerns? Talk with our team to see what complementary medicine options we have that could suit you.

the naturopathy consultation process

The first consultation is a discovery session for your naturopathy doctor. They will ask about your expectations and goals for naturopathic treatment, including specific health concerns you want to address.

Be prepared to discuss your medical history, your most recent health tests and results, your lifestyle including diet, exercise, and sleep habits, and your most pressing concerns. These will help your naturopathy doctor to create the best plan for your treatment.


No. Your GP must always be your contact person in any of your health-related concerns, especially critical issues. However, your GP may recommend that you see a naturopath near you as a specialist for your wellness. Ideally, your GP and naturopath will work together to help prevent illnesses and address any health issues that may occur.
It depends. Your initial health concerns, lifestyle, diet, the degree of change your naturopathy treatment demands, and how your body responds to the treatment will affect the results. Some patients report changes as early as a few days while others only notice visible results in a couple of weeks.
Naturopathy is concerned with supporting your body’s innate ability to heal itself. If your naturopathist sees your current diet and lifestyle are affecting your health, then they can suggest changes that will boost your body’s natural healing.
