Prevention is better than cure, and using natural therapies via our gold coast naturopath clinic can be a great way to ensure that you are in optimal health, or to pick up on any potential problems before they have the chance to cause harm.
How Natural Therapies prevent Illness
The aim of prevention in natural therapies is to improve a person’s overall health rather then just curing or improving an illness or disorder. There are three different types of prevention. Primary prevention is concerned with stopping an illness or injury from happening in the first place. Secondary prevention is concerned with early detection and intervention so that disease processes do not have a chance to develop and grow into something more serious. Tertiary prevention is concerned with treating illnesses and stopping them from becoming any worse.
Because each person is different, our naturopath will work with our client’s strengths and weaknesses and prescribe a specific prevention program. You will need to have an initial consultation with our clinic, which will be detailed and focused on understanding your body as well as assessing your current levels of health. Once this assessment has been completed, the therapist will tell you how often you should attend in order to gain the maximum preventative benefits.
It is important to see your natural therapist on a regular basis – weekly or monthly – as prevention is an ongoing process.
Just because you feel well does not mean that you should stop attending, as you may lose all the benefits over time.
