Naturopathy is a natural form of health care treatment which harnesses the healing power of nature and stimulates an individual's inherent self-healing processes. As a Naturopath, Friederike's aim is to empower people to improve their health and well-being by providing them with dietary and lifestyle advice, and if needed with safe and effective remedies.
Friederike will try to find the underlying cause of a condition and treat the entire individual person, by taking into consideration their emotions, physical body, diet, genetics, environment, spirituality and lifestyle combined with scientific knowledge and research. Being a keen researcher and regularly attending workshops and seminars, Friederike endeavours to provide her patients with relevant and up-to-date information.
Naturopathy can be used effectively alongside conventional medical treatment, but should not replace it. However, it is important to inform the patient's doctor as well as Friederike about any medications and supplements they are taking to avoid potential interactions.
Friederike cooperates with all branches of medical science, including conventional medicine. Patients may be referred to other health practitioners or a GP for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
