There was a saying not so long ago, “At least I have my health!”
You don’t hear it so much anymore?
Health can be envisaged on a timeline or spectrum. Symptoms like insomnia, aches and pains, skin rashes, constant fatigue, recurrent infections and indigestion are early markers of imbalance, that if ignored can worsen and eventually lead to a significant or even ‘catastrophic’ loss in self regulative capacity and the development of a chronic disease state.
The term ‘chronic disease’ can be applied to a group of illnesses that have persistent and long term effects on your health. Conditions like cancer, autism, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and auto-immune disease all fall into this category.
While these labels or describers and their symptoms can be managed with a ‘band-aid’ approach, we feel it is more important to understand and treat the root cause; this is the focus and domain of naturopathic medicine.
Where has the ‘health’ of the general population gone?
When you stand back and take a look at your family, friends and co-workers; how many can you look to and say, ‘well there’s a healthy specimen’?
It is important to realise that health is the natural state of your body, it continually seeks to maintain balance and optimal function. Disease manifests when you become overwhelmed by the demands, obstacles or blocks put in place by the dietary, lifestyle, emotional and environmental choices you make and are exposed too on a daily basis.
These are the stressors of modern life and for many of us these daily influences and exposures are coming together pushing us beyond coping point.
At Core Naturopathics we believe it is time to explain and cement a new paradigm of preventative or functional health care in the consciousness of the greater community: a system whose focus is on health and its maintenance, rather than on disease and the use of medications for it symptoms.
Our system assists you in understanding your illness holistically; educates, monitors, supports and guides you through the minefield that accessing natural medicine solutions can be.
How do I manage my health better?
The first step is to identify and remove the ‘drivers’ of your disease process such as: poor diet, digestive disturbances, nutritional deficiencies, toxic burdens, inappropriate and chronic stress levels, and environmental exposures.
These factors are your ‘obstacles to cure’ and must be addressed as they are the circumstances around which your disease developed. This also allows other pharmaceutical medications and therapies to have the most beneficial effects possible with least side effects.
An analogy for you here: a pain medication and an anti-inflammatory will help you deal with the effects of walking with a stone in your shoe, but your problem will never go away until you take the stone out!
It is important to recognise that symptoms of illness are indicative of the body’s best efforts at eliminating the problem; they are not the problem itself.
You will no doubt have encountered a vast array of information and opinions for dealing with your condition! Our service is to coordinate for you a logical, multi-modality and integrated approach to your therapy. Experience has shown us that selecting and sequencing appropriate treatments based on results from targeted testing is essential for best outcomes and saves time, energy and money.
How we can help
Our innovative approach is redefining how chronic disease can be managed.

Our practitioners have an arsenal of therapeutic interventions available to enhance specific tissues, organs or systems including: lifestyle interventions, dietary modifications, herbal medicines, pre/pro and post-biotics and orthomolecular supplementation (use of substances that occur naturally in the body such as vitamins, amino acids, minerals).
We also have specialist technologies and devices from around the globe to assist in restoring energy production, cellular communication, immune regulation, circulation and waste removal. These therapies include modalities such as Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMF Therapy), Hyperthermia, Ozone Therapy, Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen and Rife Therapy.
At the very least the whole body approach we suggest will help make you healthier and better able to handle the symptoms of your condition.
