Argh….I’ve got the FLU AGAIN!!!!

Naturopaths treat the patient holistically, therefore treating the person as a whole rather than just their symptoms. Naturopaths can treat a wide variety of issues and quite often approach them differently to how an orthodox doctor would. Using natural remedies, a Naturopath can treat gut issues, decreased immune function, mental health, fatigue, pain, insomnia and wellbeing.
Here at Friendlies Chemist we have a fully qualified Naturopath in store, Sarah; she is here five days a week. Sarah has two university degrees, which means she can offer you professional, highly relevant, scientific based advice. A Naturopath treats the body as a whole and offers a holistic approach to health. Naturopaths use a range of medicinal options such as, herbal, nutritional, lifestyle, diet advice and homeopathy.
