Treat the cause, not just the symptoms.

What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a holistic modality with roots back into antiquity. Naturopathy helps put the body back into homeostasis so it is able to heal itself. It is appropriate for people of all ages and can be used as an adjunct therapy for those under a medical doctor’s care. The aim is to treat the cause, not just the symptoms. It works on all levels – mind, body  and spirit, using a range of options such as the following:

  • Herbs
  • Food as Medicine
  • Nutrition – vitamins, minerals, other supplements
  • Flower essences
  • Homeopathy
  • Energy Healing and Therapeutic Touch
  • Diet and Lifestyle education

Our naturopath, Margot Read BHSc (Naturopathy), MANPA has years of experience with many different disorders, and specialises is chronic condition and diseases.

How Naturopathy can help
Naturopathy  can help with a range of conditions affecting the nervous and hepato-biliary systems , the gastrointestinal and urological systems,  the reproductive and integumentary systems, the endocrine and immune systems, and the muscular-skeletal and cardiovascular systems. Some of these include:

  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Weight loss
  • Metabolic disorders – such as thyroid problems and  diabetes
  • Digestive issues
  • Sleep, pain and other nervous system-related conditions
  • Immune deficiencies
  • Stress, anxiety, depression
  • Fatigue
  • Skin problems

I am particularly interested in treating chronic and neuro-degenerative illnesses such as Parkinson’s Disease, MS and Lyme Disease. For the last year, I have been working with John Coleman from Return to Stillness who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s twenty years ago and has since recovered. You can read his story at

Before the first appointment you will need to complete a detailed questionnaire to provide me with as much information as possible before we meet. You may request this  by emailing me at or download it from this website.
