Natural Therapies

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.
 

Naturopathy

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, Cellular Health Analysis (VLA) and treatment recommendations with herbs, vitamins and minerals.

To achieve a balanced and healthier lifestyle is not as simple as diet alone or taking a magic pill. 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.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture works on the internal energy of the body, which is called Qi (Chi). Qi flows through the body via pathways called meridians which can be likened to electricity running through wires. Qi can vary in intensity from very strong to very subtle. It is along these meridians where various acupuncture points are located.

Fine acupuncture needles are used to target treatment areas, from muscle tension, stress and anxiety plus fertility problems. To maximise the effect of your treatment other techniques may include Dorn Therapy or Myorthotics.

Benefits include drug-free pain relief, assisting and preventing disease, treating the cause as well as the symptoms and effectively treating a wide range of common ailments. How Acupuncture can help your lifestyle 

 

Allergy Testing

We use AT-92 Allergy testing which is pain free and no breakage of the skin or bleeding. With 160 items you will know what your food allergies are to avoid them to lead a happier and symptom free life.

Food Allergy is when your immune system overreacts to a particular food. Sometimes confusion lies between food allergy and intolerance. This is not a Food intolerances test. Food intolerance is when your body finds a certain food group that it can not tolerate. Eg gluten intolerance means your body can’t digest the protein (gliadin).

Food allergy can affect children and adults alike. While many children outgrow a food allergy, it is also possible for adults to develop allergies to particular foods.
