Naturopath BHSc(Nat) Germany
Dorte Petersen is the clinic’s resident naturopath. Dortes describes her work as supporting people who have physical and/or emotional problems using natural healing methods. As a naturopath, she takes a holistic view of dis-ease and looks for the causes behind the client’s presenting symptoms. She then helps her client address those causes.
Dorte says that looking for and treating the ‘causes’ behind an illness is what it means to take an holistic approach; and this is the essence of what a naturopath does. A naturopath will address the physical, mental and emotional aspects of her client’s issue because there are usually several causes holding the illness or dis-ease in place.
Only by treating the causes can the client be assured of long lasting healing effects. Naturopaths use naturopathic nutrition and natural medicines such as homeopathic remedies, herbs, supplements; and alternative therapies to bring the body/mind back into alignment so that healing can occur .
