Why see a naturopath?

If you really want to get on top of your health, it's important to understand the root cause of why you have become unwell. A naturopath spends a lot of time investigating all areas of your health including digestive health, immune function, nutritional status, medical history, diet, lifestyle and stress response in order to provide you with a suitable treatment plan.
