De-stress - Detox - Digest

Without too much complaint, our bodies have to endure a great amount of stress on a daily basis. Environmental toxins are abound in the water we drink, the food we eat and the air that we breath. Often our digestive systems are not able to absorb and assimilate the nutrients from our food. Work overload and world news alone are enough to cause us stress. When we put all of these stressors together, even a person without a clinical diagnosis or on medication is not going to be living their most optimal life. 

Naturopathy is based upon traditional principles which Woods Way Wellness has adapted to suit the demands of modern life with the Triple D Program: De-stress, Detox, Digest. This is a three step program, the length of which will depend upon individual client needs. The 4 R’s are a key strategy in Natuopathic practice. The main aim of all treatment protocols is to encourage Rebalance of organ systems and a return to homeostasis. This can be achieved by Replacing digestive enzymes and acids, Repairing tissue of the body and Reinoculation of gut microbiome.

Phase 1: De-stress

Our autonomic nervous system is responsible for regulating a wide range of functions within the body. The different branches of our nervous system control our ability to escape from danger, ensures the conservation of vital resources and impacts our digestive system function. 

It is the Naturopath’s responsibility to look for signs and signals of imbalance between the various aspects of the nervous system and to restore homeostasis (balance). At times, supporting the nervous system can quickly alleviate symptoms in other bodily systems.

It is during this initial stage that the nervous system will be the main focus. This is a time of preparation and a focus on intention. You may be encouraged to engage with techniques that aid the relaxation of the body and mind.

Phase 2: Detox

Treatment Protocols may include commitment to practices such as Food as Medicine, an elimination diet, or a food, mood or sleep diary. Tests may be carried out in order to identify any deficiencies, food allergies or other environmental sensitivities. 

Where imbalances require intervention it may be suggested that you purchase any of the following: bespoke herbal tincture; vitamins & celloid mineral therapies; neutracueticals; Bach Flower Remedies, powerful medicinal fungi or other indicated remedies.

Depending on the complexity of the clients needs, second consultations can take anywhere between 30 minutes and 60 minutes. This is a longer term commitment which will require several follow-up consultations

Phase 3: Digest

Microbiome is a key word that you will  likely be hearing more about. Scientists now realise that our gut flora makes up for up to 80% of our immune system. However, many people do not have sufficient numbers of good bacteria in their gastrointestinal tract.

This may be due to poor diet, stress, the use of antibiotics and other medications or due to a digestive disorder. Once heavy metals and other toxins have been removed during the detox phase, now is the time for nurture and repair of the entire gastrointestinal tract. 

During this phase you will feel revitalised with a renewed awareness of what your body needs along with the tools required to maintain your new health status. This is an ideal time to embrace permanent diet or lifestyle changes
