A modern Naturopath is well trained in nutritional studies and understands the importance of maintaining optimal nutrition throughout the life cycle. Poor nutrition can be fundamental to many health conditions, so identifying and correcting imbalances is integral.
A Naturopath will look for specific signs and symptoms that may point towards certain nutritional imbalances. If further investigation is required, a Naturopath may use ‘in clinic’ tests, or refer for functional pathology testing to greater understand the patient’s nutrient profile.
