Warming Up for WinterWhether you’re comfortable in the cold or wished summer would never end, winter has undeniably returned for another year. As temperatures lower, so too can your immune system’s capacity to fight off the bugs that cause colds and flus....
Winter is coming! And with it colds and flus, bronchitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, pneumonia and lots of snot, yuck. I love herbal medicine and making herbal tinctures for my patients. It gives me freedom to treat three to four different ailments without...
I love nuts. They are so easy to incorporate into diet. Out of my two kids one loves them and the other one doesn't, which is normal for our family. Actually I must say that my son will eat almonds now which is great. I feel like I'm constantly banging on...
I think I'm safe to say that we have all been bloated at least once in our lives. I'm lucky that it doesn't happen to me very often but when it does I really don't like the feeling. As I get older I find more and more foods cause bloating and one of those...

Inka is an absolutely amazingly knowledgable friendly naturopath that I found by accident seeking relief from toothache until I could get into the dentist, the natural products gave me much needed relief with no side affects and I was able to actually get some sleep!
Inka has worked with me positively to make lifestyle changes with natural herbs etc to help me manage my adrenal fatigue.
The other thing I respect about the appointments is your not sharing the room with a computer, Inka’s knowledge is not googled while your having a consultation, it is acquired with prior research and developed expertise.
I really wish I had found Five Corners Naturopath sooner!
The role of naturopath is to recognise and remove any barriers or obstructions to the body’s natural heath processes. A naturopath can provide people with the tools to take charge of their own health, leading to improved wellbeing and an increases resistance to infection and illness. Naturopathic practitioners interpret signs and symptoms and make diagnosis of possible illness based on the actual root cause of the illness. This method helps to control, eliminate and prevent any reoccurrence of illness. Once the root cause has been established, the Naturopath can then correct the imbalance and restore the body back to it’s original state of health.
Nutritional medicine is a natural approach to healthcare aimed at achieving good health to prevent illness. Optimum nutrition and health depends on the quality and quantity of food eaten, how well it is digested and absorbed and the biochemical uniqueness of the individual.
The types of foods we eat and the environmental, lifestyle stresses we are exposed to, can all lead to nutritional deficiencies and imbalances causing health problems.
With the proper guidance of a qualified healthcare professional such as a Naturopath, nutritional medicine can create a better quality of life.
There are many different “types” of herbal medicine that spring from different cultures around the world. All these have the use of medicinal plants in common, but they vary in the plants they use, the way they prepare and use medicines from these plants, and the philosophy of their treatment approaches. Different cultures may also use the same plants but differ in how it is used, or the part they use. Using plants as medicine provides significant advantages for treating many conditions.
The therapeutic activity of a plant is due to its complex chemical nature with different parts of the plant providing certain therapeutic effects.
Healthy Eating Plans
A healthy eating plan gives your body the nutrients it needs every day while staying within your daily calorie goal for weight loss. A healthy eating plan also will lower your risk for heart disease and other health conditions.
Allergy testing is the procedure used to determine which particular substances (allergens) are responsible for provoking an allergic reaction.
Iridology is a safe, useful assessment tool used by Naturopaths to help pinpoint health problems and imbalances in the body. Iridologists use a map of the iris, which correlate with all parts of the body, to see where stress and malfunctioning are occurring.
