Your body has a powerful built-in healing potential and Nutrition is a key factor that enables the body heal itself and to promote well-being. Foods provide vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are important to every biochemical process in the body. The right quality and quantity of foods are essential for the optimal function of your body.
Angela approach nutrition in a holistic way that encompasses diet and nutrition, mental and emotional demands, physical and environmental agents and how your body constitution absorbs, assimilates and reacts to all. The aim is to empower you to take control of your health and to support you through your healing process.

It is a head to toes detox!
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to health focused on the Triad of Health (physical, mental and biochemical aspects of wellbeing). Its foundations lie on the natural healing abilities of the body to fight disease and promote recovery if the ideal support is given. Treatments are therefore, focused on the power of change, in diet and lifestyle.
Naturopathic treatments involve detoxification programmes, water therapeutics (hydrotherapy), stress management & relaxation techniques, mediation, herbs, massage, functional nutritional dietary programmes, herbal medicated packs and an array of treatments that will access and support you to live a healthier and balanced life.
The differential approach of naturopathy lies on seen you an unique being, and as such with your own rhythms, biological constitution, your surroundings and experiences that shapes who you are and what you need. Naturopathy treats the root cause of your health issue considering and honouring all aspects that made and makes who you are.
The Naturopathic treatment plan is not a symptomatic only approach, although we use herbs and green allopathy to address that.
Your treatment plan is a whole lifestyle change, you learn how to look after yourself, you are empowered by knowledge of who you are and what you can do to make the most of you in a healthy and balanced manner.
Naturopathic treatments are the precursor of a new way of life. And with all my expertise and over 15 years of clinical experience I will provide you with a plan that looks after your health and bring you closer to your essence of who you are, and there is no better healing medicine than this!
Of course holistic treatments require time and your effort. So do not expect a "pill-spoon feed" approach. You will need to work and I will help you, I will keep you accountable, and this support is essential to your health goals, it is necessary and I am going to be with you!
You don't need to be ill to see a Naturopath, you may want to become healthier. I will provide you with an optimal diet, an exercise programme, a self care regime. And an optional meditation and yogic practice ( if you wish to work on elevating your consciousness and expanding your sensory perception).
Principles of Naturopathic practice
Naturopathy follows the following principles and practices when treating you:
Primum no nocere
First do not harm: Naturopathy is a very gentle and non-invasive therapy that works with your body cycles and rhythm
Treat the whole person not a single body system. Identify and treat the causes of illness not only the symptoms.
Vis medicatrix naturae
Use the healing power of nature
The Naturopath is a teacher: who empowers you to take charge and responsibility of your own health by informing you how your body works and how you can help yourself
