Utilising functional medicine, Stephen has helped numerous people overcome/improve various illnesses and diseases that conventional medical practitioners viewed as a lifelong, untreatable conditions.
Stephen enjoys giving educational lectures and talks around the Canterbury region promoting the holistic health industry and giving the public general, practical and effective tools to regain health and optimal wellbeing. In a one-on-one session with Stephen, he fully assesses your particular lifestyle and health needs in a detailed consultation and suggests the correct remedies/daily habits you require for healing. He views each person as an individual and understands that everyone is unique and each person does not necessarily respond the same way as others to certain treatments, nutritional or lifestyle plans. He works in conjunction with other medical and health practitioners to achieve optimal results for his clients and works with clients suffering from a range of conditions - from low energy and frequent illness to chronic/auto-immune conditions and cancer*.
Remember, when things aren't going right, everything seems so much harder. The focus of a naturopath is not just about overcoming illness but to optimise health and a sense of wellbeing. If you have any areas of your life that you are not happy with, a visit with a qualified naturopath could put you in the right direction to reignite or enhance the gratification that a vigorous, balanced life can give.
*To clarify, it is important to remember that when working holistically, we treat the person as a whole, not the disease. Naturopathy is an accredited, science-based approach to the promotion of wellness and not disease management. In other words, we do not diagnose or "treat cancer" but rather educate clients on the current research available on how to strengthen the body and mind to better manage/overcome any imbalance within the body/lifestyle from where the dis-ease arose.
