Jodi Duval is an experienced and fully qualified Naturopath with a degree in health science and nutrition. Naturopathy is both an art and a science. Naturopaths are prevention medicine specialists. Today, naturopaths use scientific evidence as well as traditional evidence in their practice.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasises disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including clinical herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, may also be used during treatments.
In Australia, the naturopathic profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many health initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.
How will Naturopathy help me and what do you treat ?
As mentioned above, Naturopathy is a very individualised health care system, it combines both traditional and scientific knowledge. Revital health treats the body as a whole and works to prevent illness rather than only treating symptoms. We aim to get to the cause of the issue so you have long term sustainable health. We want you to feel empowered and to expand your own knowledge of your body.
What we treat includes but is not limited to digestive complaints, menstrual issues, weight loss, children’s health, pregnancy care and wellness, post natal wellness, fertility, stress, inflammation, low energy, lack of motivation, dietary advice or change, memory and concentration issues, urinary issues, detoxification, cardiovascular health, metabolism.
What will happen in a consultation?
When you arrive or prior to coming you will fill in an initial form that is comprehensive for health history recall. A comprehensive case history will then be taken exploring your symptoms and/or health issue presentation, this includes a timeline of health history, your diet, your work, relationships, exercise and medications. If appropriate, blood pressure will be taken, BIA assessment taken, urinalysis performed, Ph testing, iridology, and pathology analysis if you have brought these in. Referral need will be assessed for further pathology testing, microbiome testing or DNA testing to further assess and measure underlying imbalances or factors affecting you getting back to optimal health.
Treatment will be determined on the above and usually includes but not limited to dietary advice, lifestyle changes, health education, nutraceutical compounding and clinical herbal medicine compounds individually formulated especially for you in line with your individual treatment plan.
