PRIMARY NATUROPATHIC SERVICES
NUTRITIONAL WELLNESS CONSULTATION
Consider that the food we consume daily transforms into our cells, blood, tissue and organs. The skin is one of the largest organs of the body and as such requires both support and protection on many levels. Environment, allergies, toxins, hormones, nutrient deficiencies and other biological aspects create the threshold for skin sustenance within the naturopathic philosophy. Nutritional status contributes not only to our overall health and well being – but influences the effects from free radical damage & aging, skin immunity, hyperpigmentation, inflammatory skin conditions and more. Our nutritional wellness consultation is a core and vital part of our skin script wellness programs.
FAR INFRARED THERAPY
FIR: Far infrared radiant heat is a naturally occurring energy that may be compared to the infrared spectrum of sunlight – but is free from the damaging effects that may be produced by ultraviolet rays. FIR encourages the body’s cells and the water within them to react to resonant absorption – encouraging waste transfer much in the way perspiration assists in detoxification. The body absorbs as much as 93% of this heat and is reputed to assist in: general detoxification, joint stiffness, boosting immunity, metabolism, cellulite conditioning and skin health.
Iridology is an assessment tool that holistic practitioners utilize in observing the overall constitution of an individual. It is not a diagnostic, but rather an indicator as to potential biochemical imbalances. The topography of the iris and the eyes correspond to specific organs and tissues and may suggest areas that need support – similarly in the way reflexology corresponds to the meridians of the body. The practice of iridology has been used for over 400 years originating in Europe. Iridology sessions are combined with our nutritional wellness consultation.
