NATUROPATHY

Naturopathy

Naturopathy focuses on natural remedies and the body's ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopaths offer dietary and lifestyle advice and will often prescribe herbal medicines, vitamins and mineral supplements. Naturopathy can successfully minimise some of the side-effects of drug therapies used in HIV treatment.

Our naturopath offers consultations at the Positive Living Centre. He has many years experience treating people living with HIV and an excellent knowledge of the naturopathic treatments specific to HIV.

Vitamart

We also offer a Vitamin supply service, providing high potency supplements that our naturopath (or your own) can recommend. Products are only available with an authority from your GP or Naturopath.
