I'm the founding Naturopath of Emma Schultz Naturopathy. I was introduced to natural therapies almost twenty years ago after a diagnosis of breast cancer at the young age of twenty one. Alongside surgery, radiotherapy and hormone treatment I also started seeing a Naturopath. My diagnosis was an enormous life change but a welcome introduction to the world of natural medicine.
As well as my naturopathic gig, I am also blessed with a beautiful little family. I don't always juggle well, but I love our crazy mess! I understand the stresses of family life. The meltdowns (sometimes my own). The overwhelm. The mental load. I understand the silent pain of miscarriage and concerns about fertility post cancer treatment. I understand the anxiety that can sneak in after having kids. I've jumped a few hurdles, and I'm truly grateful that I'm here to share my knowledge and experiences with others.
I've been a fully qualified Naturopath for nine years. My philosophy in clinic is pretty simple. Understand the cause of dis-ease and use this knowledge to promote healing and lasting wellness. Our unique makeup means that the causes and drivers of imbalance will be different for each of us. Understanding this means that the focus of treatment shifts from targeting disease alone, to a more holistic model where every client's emotional, physical and mental health needs are considered and met.
Modern science and research continue to document that our genetic predisposition, biochemical and nutritional status all play a role in our health and wellbeing. I consider these complex factors for every client on their wellness journey.
Good health is not just the absence of disease, but a complete and balanced state of mind, body and soul. As a naturopath I focus on the healing power of nature and the body's own ability to heal. I'm a herbalist at heart. I love the therapeutic actions herbal medicines provide to boost the body's natural healing potential, restore harmony, and promote health. I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
