What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy (also known as Natural Medicine) is commonly referred to as an alternative medical system.
Naturopathy doesn’t try to compete with conventional medicine, rather it endeavours to complete it.  This form of healing slots right into the obvious gaps of the conventional health care system. In this sense, all health care systems are complementary to one another.

Naturopathy focuses on natural remedies and the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach and minimal use of surgery and drugs. Its approach emphasises prevention through stress reduction and a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Naturopaths specialise in preventative health care, as well as care for chronic health conditions.

Lisa has a particular interest in:

— increasing resilience to stress
— correcting food intolerance
— improving thyroid function
— increasing energy levels
— correcting mood disorders
(anxiety, depression, and OCD)
— improving sleep quality
— making sense of all the conflicting health information ‘out-there’.

And while Naturopaths & Medical Herbalists do not deal with extreme acute situations (e.g. heart attacks, strokes, anaphylactic shock, and broken bones) we can support you to recover from these conditions (in conjunction with your conventional treatments.) Take this blog-post for example.

Every Naturopath and/or Medical Herbalist has a unique approach to the way they practice. To get an idea of Lisa’s approach, please check out the blog she writes about health: lisasaidso.co.nz

Note: Lisa primarily treats adults (those above 12 years old).  She does however deal with children (not babies) in regards to establishing and treating food intolerance.

Nobody pays attention to their health until they don’t have it any more.

Praise for OOMPH

“After one consultation she worked her magic and within the next week I started to change.”

“I am a guy so for months and months I put off going to a Naturopath. I hadn’t felt myself for years, low in energy and no matter what I did nothing seemed to change. I also had a lot of trouble sleeping and finally gave in and ended up seeing Lisa from OOMPH.

OMG! I should have gone sooner! After one consultation she worked her magic and within the next week I started to change. My energy levels increased, I was less stressed, less irritable, more relaxed, more social and finally started to sleep much better than I have in a long long time.

Don’t put it off, just go, you will not regret it.”

— Mike (July 2018)

“Lisa is a gem – she’s skilled and so fun, quirky and quick-minded”.

“Lisa has helped me understand and gather hope on some health issues which were really bringing me down. I go back to Lisa because she quizzes my mind and links it to what is going on inside.

I’ve had fast and satisfying results that I never would have figured out on my own. I’m living a happier, more content life because of it.

Thank you so much Lisa.”

— Hannah Myers (June 2018)

“She is my ‘go to’ Naturopath…”

“If you are a human being with a brain and a body, you will benefit from seeing Lisa – she is my ‘go to’ Naturopath. I live in Christchurch, I’ve been following Lisa’s blog for the last four years and have just recently had two appointments with her over the phone. I knew in the first couple of years reading her blog that she could help me with my health concerns, this was instantly reinforced even via distance appointments.

I would quite easily say that Lisa goes above and beyond as an incredibly supportive mentor for her clients, as well as a passionate nurturing Naturopath.

In less than six weeks I’ve burned six kilos of excess fat that I have been trying to shift for years, I have in many ways had the guidance I needed to redirect my focus from feeling helpless to feeling powerful. I would highly recommend  her (10/10).

Whatever you are dealing with, Lisa can help you.”

— Tess Stephen (June 2018)

“Lisa is warm, informative, and downright smart. Her approach to Naturopathy is straightforward and accessible

“I sought out Naturopathic support with high hopes of managing stress, anxiety and losing weight. I was referred to Lisa by a colleague and immediately knew I was in good hands.  Warm, informative, and downright smart, Lisa’s approach to Naturopathy is straightforward and accessible.

I felt very comfortable opening up to Lisa, and sincerely appreciate her passion for healing naturally. She provided me with a structured plan and new herbs and supplements. Within a month, I experienced significant improvements in stress levels and managed to lose the niggly 7 lbs (a little over 3 kgs).

Looking forward to our next session!”

— Alexandra Wilson (March 2018)

Lisa also writes a popular health blog

As a Naturopath & Medical Herbalist, she often gets asked a lot of the same questions on general health. She also sees a lot of people making the same health mistakes. People get confused by the enormous amount of (and often conflicting) information available. Her response to this was to create a blog about health:
LISA SAID SO (lisasaidso.co.nz).

This blog is also used as a reference tool for her clients.
