Sorry I don't have time to answer in detail but I suggest going to student clinics to get an idea of its right for you. Endeavour college is aus wide.

They are brilliant for fertility issues, and generally aren't quacks. But like any profession you get crap ones. I personally stay clear of those that do homeopathy as while most herbs in naturopathy are evidence based, homeopathy is a sham.

There is some science to support some naturopathic treatment. Unfortunately many naturopath use unsupported treatments like homeopathy or iridology too, which have no scientific basis and no evidence to support their use...but still cost you $$$. So I'd be wary- don't be scared to question or decline things.

What exactly is the difference between naturopathy and homeopathy? Aren't they linked?

I would sing the praises of my naturopath any day. She is unbelievable.
After seeking help from our naturopath both my DH and I lost weight (something DH had struggled with), DHs digestion issues were solved, our over all health improved, and most importantly we conceived after 2.5 years.

If you find a good naturopath they are brilliant. I don't believe in homeopathics but from experience I have seen great results from naturopathic treatments. Do your research to find a reputable one. I Like ones that I can claim through my health fund so you can get some money back. I found that naturopaths tend to look for the cause of whatever the problem is and treat that eg why are you getting skin issues etc. a naturopath fixed a skin problem I had that my gp couldn't.

Naturopathy is the use of vitamins and herbs. Homeo is where it's just water which has a 'memory' of the substance in it which is so diluted it's the same ratios as a drop in ocean. They do a silly tapping the bottle thing and treat like with like. So for a headache they put an extremely diluted substance to give you a headache. It's proven to be quakery.

I have my first naturopath appointment next week and I'm really looking forward to it! It is through a woman's health centre so I am only paying $20 for a 1.5 hour consultation. Really hope it gives me some help with my painful endometriosis!
