Naturopathic Nutritional Therapists receive extensive training in anatomy, physiology and pathology: they have an
excellent understanding of how the body works and what happens when things go wrong. Often a qualified Naturopathic Nutritional
Therapist has to assess clients modern pharmaceutical drug plan and then work out protocols to combine with 'natural medicines'
with the aim that the reliance on modern drugs can be reduced (by the GP or consultant) and sometimes even eliminated. The
body can then be re-balanced and the natural healing energy of the body restored. Initially a deep level of individual
assessment will be done in order to establish the root cause of the illness. On-going assessment is usually done on a monthly
basis initially and treatment plans changed accordingly.
