Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.
Naturopathic principles are based on treating each person as an individual and treating the whole person, not just the affected area.
At High Street Natural Health, we focus on individual treatment for you. It is our goal to heal your whole body, mind and emotions, to restore health and prevent disease.
Treatment methods include:
Herbal Medicine, Dietary, Nutritional and Lifestyle advice, Soft tissue manipulation and Homoeopathy
What is the basis of naturopathy?
Naturopathy uses the holistic principles of Hippocrates to treat the underlying cause and the whole patient, not just the symptoms. It focuses on educating the patient and developing preventative measures to reduce recurrence. Therefore we focus on teaching and providing a range of holistic medicines for your wellbeing.
The underpinnings of naturopathic medical practice are in six principles:
-First Do No Harm – Primum Non Nocere
-The Healing Power of Nature – Vis Medicatrix Naturae
-Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect – Tolle Causam
-Treat the Whole Person – Tolle Totum
-The Physician is a Teacher – Docere
-Prevention is the best “cure” – Praevenire
Somatic acupuncture is a system of acupuncture developed over 20 years of experience by Aurora. She utilises ancient acupuncture systems such as the 13 Ghost Points. A system that is specific for mental, emotional and neurological conditions and extremely helpful to patients with long standing emotional trauma. To these she adds her skills in deep listening to pulses and people, finding accurately the dominant emotional experience, she then selects points that enable the processing of these held emotional experiences. She adds points that treat and reset the Poly Vagal nerve, the major two branched nerve that conveys experiential stress through every organ and tissue of the body. By treating the bodies ability to normalise its held stress responses, patients feel calm, centred and grounded – cared for and relieved of the traumatic burdens they have been carrying, no cognitive awareness of what is held is required. Always Aurora is directed by the body, which along with these harmful stressors also holds insightful information and kindness to tap into, helping us to care more deeply for ourselves.
Herbal medicine is the administration of plants, herbs or flowers to achieve a therapeutic effect. Botanical remedies have a very long history of beneficial use,
the earliest written record dates back 5000 years ago to a text in Mesopotamia. This European indigenous often matrilineal knowledge has been explored also in a vast and ongoing body of research. At High Street Natural Health we have created our own range of Herbal Medicines that act on the poly vagal nerve as this is the fundamental way in which stress is sent from the brain into every organ and system creating illness and disease.
As a holistic approach, herbs are a deeply acting way in which we can offer support and resources to the body in the potentially harmful environment that is the world today.
During the herbal medicine session, Aurora prescribes an individual treatment plan focusing on your specific needs and health concerns.
Acupuncture is able to treat conditions that cause infertility such as an under or over-functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism), PCOS, endometriosis and unidentified subfertility. Acupuncture is often combined with herbal medicine and hair mineral analysis to look for heavy metals that can cause oxidative stress and damage cells. Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the entire reproductive system, including the endometrium, which helps greatly to facilitate conception and implantation. It is also effective at improving the health and regulation of ovulation and menstrual cycles as well as reducing stress, which can be such a hard part of any fertility journey.
As a woman in our current society is it any wonder that we might have reproductive health issues? The workload and expectations placed on us are not supportive of any woman living in her best cyclic nature, no time is allowed for an alternate method of function, a creative and non-creative time. Any indication of this is considered weak or negatively portrayed to such a degree that women sanction instead of supporting each other. Because we believe that what happens in our lives is visible in our health, acknowledging our circumstances is essential and although there is not always a way to change this, understanding and offering support is profound and extremely valuable. We can naturally improve a reproductive system’s function even when compromised by the harmful effects of living in a patriarchal system.

Trauma can be any significant experience that is not resolved or not acknowledged.
There are many experiences that may create negative health impacts – adverse childhood experiences, abuse, divorce, disadvantage, poverty, loss of a parent, and societal impacts such as inequality, patriarchy, racism and capitalism. At times people may experience unpredictable emotions and flashbacks, many people are stuck in a fight or flight response and all of their engagements affected.
We know all trauma produces an inflammatory response in the body which is why it can be so harmful to health.
There are very useful and accurate blood tests that measure the impacts, so you can finally see what has happened and we can begin to recover and reverse the experience that is trauma.
The world is a dangerous natural environment, we have added complexity to this because of all our modern demands and expectations, placed heavily now on us as individuals with no collective support.
Stress responses are impacted by the lives we have lived as well as what is happening now and the trans-generational traumas and responses we may have inherited.
Severe or chronic stressors result in inflammation and nervous system overwhelm, which means we can become stuck in fight and flight or stuck in shutdown and disassociation.
We use effective treatments to care for and reset the polyvagal nerve that is transmitting stress throughout the body and provide herbal support for the neuroendocrine adrenal system, to give you back your resilience.
