Natural Therapies is about a healthier and balanced lifestyle. At Petrie's Cottage we aim to provide you with an understanding in the necessary choices to prevent illness & encourage wellbeing. This is achieved through educating and guiding clients through diet, nutrition, herbal medicine, vitamins and minerals.
During your personalised consultation you will be asked in confidence, detailed questions about your health. This assessment enables us to determine any health problems, how long you have had them and what the causes are. Dietary and life style choices are also evaluated.
Your initial consultation is the most complex as we look at - Dietary and lifestyle choices, Iridology, Cellular Health Analysis (VLA) and treatment recommendations with herbs, vitamins and minerals.
To achieve this balanced and healthier lifestyle is often not as simple as diet alone. Holistically we look at nutritional supplements including herbs, vitamins and minerals and even a little exercise.
Technological advances and scientific research now supports the significant benefits of natural medicine in treating diseases and conditions affecting our society today. Many of the choices we make in our day-to-day living have the potential to be detrimental to our well-being; therefore our lifestyle and approach to life needs to be re-evaluated to promote health rather than endorse disease.
