Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a term used to describe alternative healthcare. Naturopaths at Tonic Room use a variety of modalities including herbal medicine, holistic nutrition, supplementation and education to inspire, nurture and support you towards total health and wellness.

Naturopathy is based upon the healing powers of nature and the body’s innate ability to heal itself when nurtured correctly. Naturopaths adopt the philosophy that health is not just the absence of disease; it is also having abundant energy, vitality, emotional stability and the optimal function of all body systems. Other basic fundamental principles of Naturopathy include:

 

Do No Harm
The simplest and gentlest therapy - naturopaths utilise methods that minimise the risk of harm in order to effectively guide your body towards health and balance.

Find the Cause 
Naturopaths look beyond physical symptoms to identify and treat underlying causes of imbalance

Treat the Whole Person
Naturopaths address all physical, mental and emotional symptoms with the belief that body, mind and spirit are essential to good health.

Prevention
Prevention is key! This is achieved through inspiration and education to promote the responsibility for a healthy lifestyle. Obstacles to good health will be identified and removed.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is both the art and science of using botanical medicines to promote health and wellbeing. Naturopaths and Integrative Medical Practitioners use Herbal Medicine extensively in the safe and effective treatment and prevention of a wide range of conditions.

Certain plants contain potent substances that have a medicinal effect on the body. The modern practice of herbal medicine still relies heavily on traditional wisdom, but with the aid of modern science and evidence-based research.

All herbs and herbal prescriptions have a therapeutic affect on the body. They are safe, with few side effects, and are healthier than prescription medications. Herbal Medicine can work very well alongside orthodox treatments.

Tonic Room can prescribe and make up a variety of herbal tonics depending on clients’ individual needs. Not all herbs and supplements are created equal. Quality and integrity are of utmost importance at Tonic Room. All herbal prescriptions are high grade, therapeutic and practitioner-only. The synergy of prescribing is always taken into account to enhance and potentiate the overall beneficial effect of all supplements.

Herbal medicines come in a variety of forms such as tonics, teas, capsules, and creams, all of which can be individually tailored to clients’ requirements.

Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine draws together the best of conventional medicine and complementary therapies to offer a truly integrative approach to health and illness.  
 
When you see an integrative medical practitioner, you can expect to have an in-depth assessment of your health. Your practitioner will take a thorough case history asking for information about your current health concerns along with your previous health history. The assessment will usually include an examination and diagnostic testing.
 
The practitioner will work with you to develop a comprehensive programme that may involve various approaches including nutritional, herbal, environmental, body therapies and mind-body medicine. This will address factors that may be contributing to poor health, and help you to achieve and maintain optimal health and wellbeing.

Holistic Nutrition

Holistic nutrition focuses on a natural approach to a healthy diet and considers the individual as a whole, including all aspects of one’s lifestyle. Holistic Nutrition is both the science and the art of looking at food, its nutrients and substances, and their association with the body in relation to health and wellbeing.
Holistic Nutritionists believe in the power of food as medicine. Through this belief, they promote the use of your diet as a therapeutic tool to treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions including fatigue, low mood, anxiety, poor sleep, hormonal imbalances, acne and eczema.

The fundamental principle of holistic nutrition is that nutrients obtained from food are essential for the natural processes that constantly take place inside the body.

Holistic Nutritionists are trained to look at what you eat, and how the nutrients from your diet are processed, absorbed, and used by your body. Along with a wholefood diet and meal plan, they aim to encourage and inspire you to overcome everyday obstacles and take charge through developing healthy relationships with food. Holistic Nutritionists can also address and prescribe practitioner only supplements, when necessary, to help address and alleviate symptoms.

Clinical Psychology

Clinical psychology is a talking therapy that integrates neuroscience and several psychotherapy models for the purpose of understanding, preventing and relieving symptoms such as stress, anxiety and depression and promote emotional balance and personal development.

Therapy sessions focus on thoughts, feelings and actions and the relation between these to help the client gain insight in the patterns that are causing their symptoms. Science based techniques are then used to create more helpful patterns that make the client feel better and more in control.


Therapy can be as effective as mood stabilizing medication, it empowers the client and creates long lasting improvements.

Mindfulness

Research based mindfulness aims to retrain the mind to be less busy and stressed and more aware, open and present by helping clients observe their thoughts and feelings in a kind and non judgemental way.  

In essence an attention training but with far reaching effects on the mind and the body affecting many life areas such as mood, physical health, relationships and self esteem.

Mindfulness is among the most effective stress reduction and performance enhancing methods. It gives clients greater control over their thoughts, feeling and actions, which promotes overall wellbeing and performance.

The Renew Your Mind approach to mindfulness teaches clients how to fit mindfulness into their everyday activities making it practical and easy to use. At the Tonic room we offer both individual mindfulness training sessions and group training sessions.

Acupuncture

TESTING

Functional testing

Tonic Room practitioners draw on a wide range of functional tests to assist in providing the best health outcomes for their clients.

As each person is unique in their biochemical make up, some cases require further investigation in order to gain a full understanding of all possible causes for the presenting condition. Results from tests offer valuable information regarding biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal imbalance that can assist your practitioner in determining the best individualised treatment.

Tonic Room offers both on-site testing as well as functional pathology testing available from leading Australasian and international laboratories.
