Cindy's approach as a naturopath
I take a very honest and transparent approach to practice, I love getting to the heart of the matter and I know my clients appreciate my integrity with this. When I work with people I understand that changes are not always easy to make and each step is at my clients pace. I take great delight in researching the underlying problem within a clients health condition, allowing me to love all the technical details of how the body works, it's biochemistry and nutrient determinants.
How does Naturopathy work in the 20th century?
In the past, the best way of understanding the underlying causes of disease was to carefully observe and collate patterns of disease and symptoms to provide an educated analysis on which the client's specific treatment program could be determined.
However today, with the aid of functional pathology, it is possible to confirm and clarify points of metabolic and hormonal dysfunction. Functional medicine, in many instances allows the practitioner to identify intricate imbalances in metabolic pathways, removing the guesswork, and allowing the practitioner to take a completely evidence based approach to treating the body holistically. Thyroid disorders and chronic fatigue are especially suited to this type of investigation.
Naturopathic medicine and Thyroid conditions
Cindy takes a particular interest in supporting thyroid conditions, strategically developing programs for clients to address the underlying causes of their conditions. Thyroid problems can be the result of various metabolic or hormonal dysfunctions, therefore treatment is not a one size fits all approach. Many hypothyroid cases, for example, cannot be resolved with thyroxine supplementation alone. Furthermore, standard pathology testing often falls short in identifying the exact cause or even the presence of hypothyroidism.
Naturopathic care for Chronic Fatigue
The causes of chronic fatigue are vast and varied, including hypothyroidism, low cortisol, insulin resistance, viral infections or gut dysbiosis to name a few. Functional pathology allows the practitioner to clearly identify the cause and implement a precise program to assist the client on their return to health and normal metabolic function.
One of the areas that is crucial to understanding chronic fatigue is the emotional / stress element that plays out. This is an area of practice that I have been exploring over the last 10 years and have found that a complete approach to understanding chronic fatigue needs to include an understanding of stressors and energetic tensions that cause people to not only feel physically fatigued but also emotionally and energetically drained.
