Rinalda & Associates
At the Centre for Holistic Health we provide a range of natural healing modalities (complementary therapies) to meet the needs of our clients by giving the answers, options, support and tools necessary to find and treat the underlying causes of the symptoms. Thus whatever the health challenges you might be struggling with, our team offers expertise and compassion as we take care to stimulate the healing power of the body, and guide you towards health and well-being. This is in keeping with the naturopathic philosophy to:
• First do no harm
• Address the fundamental cause of disease
• Co-operate with the healing power of nature
• Heal the whole person through individualized treatment
• Teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine
Focus is placed on rebuilding individuals and their families through self-discovery, inspiration, and self-actualization. This is achieved by using an integrated perspective involving the mind, body and soul of each client. This enables the client who has paused on their journey (due to circumstances) to seek true identity, learn tools for success, motivate, inspire hope, and embrace the process of self-improvement.
A healthy diet is the foundation on which health and healing can occur. Foods affect each of us differently; this means that consideration of your individual dietary needs is important. You may be asked you to keep a diet diary, which is the first step towards determining food sensitivities, clarifying digestive issues, or discovering any other correlation between your diet and your health. Through this exercise, we can make dietary suggestions or changes to help improve your health. Specific diets may be recommended and treatment may include nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, or enzymes to promote healing and improved health.
Medicinal plants have been used for thousands of years in many cultures and traditions, and continue to be a valuable part of health care. These plants and plant substances are highly effective and safe in the right dosage, and when used correctly with other herbs and treatments. Some of the form they can be used in are teas, juices, tablets, extracts, capsules, poultices, ointments, and essential oils.
