Naturopathy Cairns

Naturopathy is a distinct and total system of healthcare, existing within a holistic framework that treats the whole person, not simply an affected area. It emphasises prevention, treatment and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. Through the gentle and stimulating naturopathic treatment we offer, the body and mind are supported and work together through the healing process.

At Cairns Wellness, we diagnose and treat the cause of your illness or stress using all natural health care methods. As a completely drug fee and non-surgical treatment, our naturopath team may use or combine treatments including:

  • Herbal Medicine
  • Homeopathic Medicine
  • Vitamin and Mineral Supplements
  • Dietary Therapy
  • Positive Lifestyle Advice

The Naturopathic Healing Process

The healing power of nature: At our naturopathic clinic we act to identify and remove obstacles to your healing and recovery, facilitating and augmenting your own inherent self-healing process.

Identify and treat the cause: We seek to identify and remove the underlying causes of your illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.

In accordance with the foundation principles of Naturopathy we commit to:

  • Utilise methods and medicinal substances which minimise the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat
  • Avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms
  • Acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals’ self-healing process

Naturopathic medicine has the potential to help alleviate a broad range of complaints and is suitable for all ages. While some of the common ailments treated include stress, fatigue, digestive issues and general pain, a naturopath is also beneficial to those without a specific health concern. As naturopathic treatment helps boost the body’s own healing potential, it can balance those who don’t yet feel unwell and prevent disease before it is established.

Our supplement range includes practitioner only products that must be prescribed by a qualified Naturopathic health professional. We do not sell multi-level marketing products and we endeavour to source our products from Australian manufacturers wherever possible. We prescribe from the following supplement brands: Metagenics, Orthoplex, BioCeuticals, Sunray, MediHerb, MeiHerb, Pure Innovation, China Med, Black Pearl, Douglas Laboratories, Doctor Wilson’s Bio Active healthcase, Heel, Sanum, Optimal, The Herb Extract Company and The Pharmaceutical Plant Company.

What You Can Expect From Your Naturopathy Appointment

Dr. Colin Charnley has been treating patients in the local area for over 50 years and is an expert in a wide range of natural therapies, including herbal medicine, osteopathy, laser therapy and biomesotherapy. By integrating these other modalities into his work, Dr. Charnley takes a full-body systems approach to treatment to stimulate patients’ self-healing processes. At Cairns Wellness, we take the health of your entire body into account, rather than spot-treating areas, so you can stay happier and healthier for longer.

Dr. Charnley uses gentle, stimulating, non-surgical and drug-free naturopathic treatments to diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of illnesses at the source, rather than treating your symptoms alone. Depending on your body’s unique requirements, Dr. Charnley may use one treatment method or combine several treatments, such as dietary therapy, herbal medicine, homeopathic medicine, vitamins and mineral supplements and positive lifestyle advice. Your appointment may also include a voice scan with iridology.

Dr. Colin Charnley treats patients from his at-home practice to keep his overheads low and his prices reasonable, so you can rest assured that you will receive high-quality treatment without having to break the bank. To learn more about Dr. Charnley, take a look at his YouTube channel, where he demonstrates some of his most popular naturopathy treatments.

How Do You Diagnose Patients?

To diagnose patients, Dr Charnley uses a variety of different methods. He is a long time member of NES Health, which uses bioenergetics to offer a complete system to restore the body’s energy and health at its source. By taking a closer look at the physics underlying the body’s biochemical nature, he can analyse and rectify the body’s biofield to restore its health and return it to full functionality.

Dr. Charnley also uses sclerology, iridology, Chinese pulse and tongue diagnosis and quantum physics to diagnose patients, as well as taking a thorough look into their case history to identify any cross-correlating symptoms. Dr. Charnley also relies on his gut instinct and 50 years of experience to provide patients with a custom treatment plan that will work for them. If you have any questions about Dr. Charnley’s methods of diagnosis, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Naturopathy FAQs

What can naturopathy do for me?

Naturopathy is great because it’s not only curative but preventative! Whether you have a family history of high cholesterol or high blood pressure, have experienced health concerns like digestive issues or headaches in the past, or just want to see if you could feel even better than you already do, naturopathy could be ideal for you. Dr. Charnley will talk with you about your medical history, concerns and lifestyle, and work with you to implement steps to keep you fit and well.

Why choose Cairns Wellness?

Our specialist, Dr. Colin Charnley, has been practising naturopathic treatment for over 35 years. He has 22 (and counting!) qualifications in different areas of naturopathic treatment, so you know he’s been keeping up to date on the latest developments.

As for the products we use, we attempt to source from Australian manufacturers wherever possible, and do not engage with any multi-level marketing products as they are not highly regulated. Our supplement range includes products that must be prescribed by a qualified naturopath, so you know you’re getting the best of the best! Our supplements are not the same as those you’d get from a chemist or a health food store.

Do I need a referral?

You don’t need a referral for any treatments. All we ask is that you bring a list of medications you are currently taking (if any), a list of treatments you have tried to date, and any relevant X-rays or MRIs. These will help us to hone in on the issues and avoid any harmful interactions with your existing medication regime.

How is a naturopath’s treatment different from a doctor’s?

Naturopathy at its core seeks to provide holistic treatment of health conditions. This means that a naturopath will look at a problem from all angles and seek to find the root cause of the ailment. While a doctor may see a patient with high blood pressure and prescribe a medication without addressing lifestyle, dietary or familial factors, a naturopath may choose to provide supplements, dietary therapy or herbal medicine to naturally bring blood pressure down with fewer side effects and a more body-aligned approach.

How does naturopathy work?

We believe that the body has all the tools it requires to heal itself, but sometimes, it just needs a helping hand. Naturopathy aims to supplement your body’s natural abilities and bring you back to a healthy state without any harsh drugs or surgeries.
