Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic is a general practice. This means that all health problems are dealt with. However, there are some areas of expertise, and there are certain conditions that we specialise in, through long experience and successful results. You will understand these if you explore the page Conditions Treated, which has links to many other pages on specific conditions. So if you are looking for an experienced Naturopath Perth, then consider coming to our clinic situated in Cottesloe.
In the philosophy of this clinic, we cannot treat a problem as if it is separate from the person as a whole. It is people who are treated; and as a result, their complaints are improved. In every case, the focus is always on the individual, regardless of the diagnosis or the name of the disease. This is the most basic difference between our approach and that of orthodox medicine.
Naturopath or Homeopath?
“Holistic” is the word used to describe any therapy that treats the person as a whole, and homeopathy is the most holistic of all therapies. It is also the most natural and the most free of side effects. It is aimed at balancing the individual on all levels: mentally, emotionally and physically; and because homeopathy is applicable and safe for all age groups, family treatment is our forte. If you wish to understand more about homeopathy, please visit the page Homeopathy Explained.
As a naturopath and homeopath with more than twenty-five years’ experience, Michael Blanch “knows what works”. He applies naturopathic principles of health, lifestyle, diet and stress management alongside homeopathic medicine accurately prescribed to the individual as a whole.This treatment stimulates the innate healing mechanisms of the body, and more than 90% of people report very positive changes from the first to the second visit, in a matter of weeks. Our experience shows that in most cases a permanently improved situation of health can be achieved.

The body needs to be given space to heal. In conjunction with naturopathic principles, homeopathy assists these natural processes. The integrated approach of naturopathy with homeopathic treatment offers a genuine alternative to drug treatment, which mostly attempts to counter what the body is trying to do.
The focus may be said to be either alternative or complementary, depending on the circumstance and the individual case. Where patients need to continue with orthodox drugs, the treatment offered through this clinic will not interfere and doses of medication can often be reduced. In the process, the wellbeing of the patient will likely be improved.
If drug treatment can be reduced, in most cases the patient will be referred back to their GP for that reduction and for monitoring. Also, please note that we do not treat life threatening situations.
Our clinic sees itself as part of a responsible network of health solutions for today’s educated consumer. We receive referrals from a range of therapists, including medical doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, yoga and meditation teachers, psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists throughout Perth, and in turn refers to these practitioners where necessary.
Even though our philosophy is so different to orthodox medicine, we understand the importance of medical investigations to diagnose serious conditions, as a safety net for our clients, and in surgical emergencies. We are pragmatists and will never let our philosophy compromise our judgement, where the safety or health of our patients is concerned!
