A unique approach to health care integrating Naturopathy, Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy and Functional Medicine.
Naturopathy is a philosophy and holistic health care system that recognises the healing power of nature present in all living things. As a holistic system, it aims to promote and restore health by employing various natural treatment approaches that may include nutritional therapy, food intolerance testing, herbal and botanical medicines, lifestyle advice, homoeopathy, hydrotherapy, physical therapy and other techniques.
Naturopathy is a system of medicine aimed at facilitating and promoting the body's inherent self-healing mechanisms. The body has an innate ability to heal itself when it's supported and nurtured towards optimum health.
Naturopathic practice is focused on treating the individual and seeks to identify the factors which predispose, trigger and maintain the underlying causes of ill health, rather than treating the symptoms alone.
Indigo Wellbeing empowers you with the support and guidance of a personalised treatment plan to start your journey towards optimum health.
Welcome to Indigo Wellbeing! I am Emily Harris, an experienced Naturopath passionate about natural health and wellbeing. With a gentle, balanced and empathic approach, I hope to hold space for people to really identify areas of their life and their health which need love and attention.
The beauty of the Naturopathic approach is that I treat people not conditions. I focus on treatment and recommendations that support the body’s self-healing capacity, while also helping you discover not-so-obvious underlying causes. I have a particular interest in Naturopathic approaches to eczema, skin conditions and autoimmune conditions.
I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Health Sciences: Naturopathic Medicine from the University of Westminster in 2011. A Registered Naturopath with the General Council and Register of Naturopaths (GCRN), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK register for Complementary Therapists and The General Naturopathic Council (GNC).
When I am not in practice I can probably be found bouncing! A trampoline gymnast and club coach for the past 20 years, I complement trampolining with CrossFit and Tai Chi!
I provide personalised treatment including nutritional therapy and dietary advice based on your health and lifestyle, helping my clients to make food and lifestyle choices that support their health. My recommendations, created in partnership with you, usually includes nutritional therapy and dietary advice based on your health and lifestyle, carefully selected supplements to maintain or restore optimal health, botanical medicines, herbal teas, lifestyle advice, stress management and emotional and wellbeing support to help you back on track with your health.
The holistic approach to the consultation and treatment plan enables you to evaluate your health, diet and lifestyle and identify areas which may be out of balance. Naturopathy can guide you back towards optimal health teaching you how to gain control of your health and encourage you to make thoughtful and informed decisions regarding your own care.
Change often taken takes time. I will work with you to create and implement your wellbeing plan, making changes when needed and offering my presence, encouragement and support.
A naturopathic consultation is essentially a detailed health profile. I will make a thorough assessment of your case history, in an attempt to identify the root cause of your health problems. I understand the need to carefully consider the individuality of each client.
A consultation with a naturopath will often be a lot longer than one you may have experienced with your family doctor or GP, with the first visit often taking from 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Naturopathy is a complete all-round approach to health and wellbeing. We’ll work together to evaluate your current state of health, your health history, review any testing, as well as evaluating your current diet and lifestyle. I will then develop a thorough nutrition and lifestyle plan that addresses your issues and concerns and together we’ll work towards restoring optimal health.
Naturopathic consultations at Indigo Wellbeing are generally broken down into the following:
Initial Consultation: Seen as a 'fact-finding' consult. We gather your detailed health history, perform relevant screenings and evaluate your health and treatment goals.
Follow-up consultation: Generally held a week later to present you with our recommendations on how we plan to achieve your health goals. Treatment generally starts here.
Subsequent follow-up consultations are scheduled depending on the nature of the presenting condition, your goals and the treatment plan agreed with your practitioner.
Naturopathy is a complete health system embracing the healing of the whole person.
A variety of treatment approaches may be used including nutritional therapy, food intolerance testing, botanical and herbal medicine, Bach flower essences, homeopathy, healthy lifestyle advice, and emotional wellbeing therapies.
Treatment plans are personalised to a person's individual health and wellbeing needs.
A Naturopathic treatment session may encompass one or more therapies, based on your individual needs and preferences.
More information on the therapies available can be found here.
