Naturopathy has changed enormously in the past 25 years. When I first started out people made their products from raw ingredients. Imagine walking into an old naturopathic compounding pharmacy where they asked you about your signs and symptoms and they made you an individualised remedy!! Now there are ready made, standardised formulas that suit the average person but are not patient specific. It takes more time to formulate and compound from raw ingredients but for me this is where true value is found. My naturopathic pharmacy is set up this way. I have individualised herbs, nutrients, flower essences, homeopathic remedies, skin care raw ingredients that I combine (compound) individually for my clients.
In clinic I am able to make individual topical remedies for a variety of health conditions:-
boils / school sores, eczema, acne, warts
ear drops for otitis media
lubricants for vaginal dryness
healing balms for bee stings, bites, bruising, bone fractures
