Naturopathic medicine, or naturopathy, is an approach to health care which aims to promote, restore and maintain health. Naturopathy aims to assist the patient in whatever aspect of their life needs support.

'The Healing Power of Nature' is the overriding principle behind naturopathic medicine, maintaining that all disease is a result of violating the 'laws of nature': Each individual has an inherent ability to restore and maintain health and balance under the right circumstances. It is the job of a naturopathic physician to assist in providing the ideal conditions for good health, to allow the body to function at its optimum level.

In naturopathic philosophy it is not the actual treatment or substance itself that does the healing, but the action of the body's innate self-healing capacity that restores correct function: Only Nature cures.

Naturopathy engages the healing power of Nature through correct nutrition and natural therapies to provide the body with the internal and external environment in which it can heal itself.

Naturopathy is based on the following principles:
* The Healing Power of Nature, or Vis Medicatrix Naturae: There is a 'vital force' or 'life force' which drives the self-healing or self-correcting mechanisms of the body.
* The 'Triad of Health', which describes the connection and interaction between the structural (physical), biochemical (nutritional) and mental/emotional aspects of all living beings. Dysfunction in one area invariably leads to an imbalance in the whole person; and
* The Uniqueness of the Individual: People are genetically, biochemically, structurally and emotionally unique. Each person responds in an individual way to influences, whether psychological, physical, nutritional, social or cultural.

Naturopathic physicians use an eclectic approach, utilising the essential method of interviewing and questions, listening, looking and palpating along with a thorough history of diagnosed disorders, prescribed medication, family history, diet and lifestyle, and performs a focused physical exam when indicated to select the optimal treatment to help reach the patient's goals. Naturopathic physicians can select from a broad range of treatment modalities in which they have been trained and which are closest to their personal philosophy. The form of naturopathic specialism at Greenfields arises from a new specialty called Generative Medicine which evolved from the growing scientific evidence and basis of the Blood Group Diet and GenoType Diet and Lifestyle consultations.

At Greenfields we are finding that Generative Medicine changes the way our patients see things. With practical lifestyle and dietary tools they feel empowered to make a difference in their life situation with renewed energy and vitality. They see their symptoms as barometers to guide decisions in stress management, exercise and food and preparation choices. For some who first come with health challenges as a result of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid conditions, imbalances in hormones, cancer, arthritis and autoimmune states, specific testing and interventions to assist the body's innate healing powers can facilitate a welcomed paradigm shift.

The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is enduring, and has survived the scrutiny of evidence-based medicine. Current outcome studies are amassing evidence from the ongoing investigation and research by utilising the model of Generative Medicine. Generative Medicine aims to identify the self-healing processes and allows the physician to participate in partnership with them. This is achieved by applying the tools of systems biology and bioinformatics (a branch of nutrigenetics) to the complex behaviours seen in health and disease. The Generative Medicine approach allows for safer and more individualised treatments in sickness and in health, with a better understanding of the complex behaviours of the whole person. These behaviours go beyond cause-and-effect relationships and provide a better understanding of the relationships between the individual parts, whether they are genes, cell organelles like mitochondria, organ systems, or even an individual's place in society.

Naturopathic philosophy is utilised to educate the patient to improve their posture, breathing, exercise and rest. Genetic and environmental factors are taken into consideration to individualise correct use of water and light, and nutrition through diet and strategic supplementation. Naturopathic treatment modalities include therapeutic massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation, osteopathy, craniosacral therapy and Chinese medicine. One-off homœopathic remedies can assist release of deep-seated patterns. Frequently recommended therapies include: naturopathic therapeutic massage, hydrotherapy (Epsom salt baths, cold water packs); botanical and nutritional supplements; vibrational essences, herbal or homœopathic remedies for short term benefit or in a first aid context.

Osteopathy is a form of primary healthcare using the hands for diagnosis and treatment. Patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and babies.

Osteopathy uses a patient-focused physical approach to restoring, maintaining and promoting physical and psychosocial wellbeing. Primarily treatments take the form of a manual therapy involving massage, mobilisation and spinal manipulation for the treatment of musculoskeletal problems. Some osteopaths, including all osteopaths at Greenfields, use techniques such as osteopathy in the cranial field, which are a part of traditional osteopathy. Osteopaths may also use visceral techniques to treat the body organs.

Osteopaths may refer to serious medical conditions if they hold convincing evidence of the efficacy of their treatments. Osteopaths may currently claim to treat the following disorders, for which there is generally accepted clinical evidence in the UK to support benefit from osteopathic treatment:
* Aches and pains
* Arthritic pain
* Back pain, backache, both acute and chronic (not arising from injury or accident)
* Circulatory problems
* Cramp
* Chronic low back pain
* Digestion problems
* Elbow pain
* Fibromyalgia
* Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis, arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences)
* Headaches arising from the neck
* Hip pain from osteoarthritis (as an adjunct to core osteoarthritis treatments and exercise)
* Inability to relax
* Joint pains
* Knee pain from osteoarthritis (as an adjunct to core osteoarthritis treatments and exercise)
* Migraine prevention
* Minor sports injuries and tensions
* Muscle spasms
* Neck pain from uncomplicated mechanical causes
* Neck-related headaches or dizziness
* Neuralgia
* Rheumatic pain
* Sciatica
* Shoulder girdle pain
* Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis, arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck)

Britain’s Osteopaths provide over eight million consultations a year for problems like those above that may be related to musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Our expertise in treating people in pain and other problems is sought by people of all ages and occupations.

Some osteopaths also see adults, teenagers, babies and children with problems other than musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Our patients report improvements in many other symptoms other than the areas above, where osteopathy is known to help.

Osteopathic treatment using techniques in the cranial field may be used alongside other osteopathic techniques such as manipulation. Some patients report benefit from a purely cranial / indirect approach, and these techniques are often well tolerated by patients who find joint manipulation uncomfortable. This approach is often used as a treatment of choice for infants and children, pregnant women and mothers, the elderly and frail, but can be applied to anyone.

Visceral osteopathy, or osteopathic treatment of the internal organs, addresses alternative physical causes of health problems which may not directly result from misalignment of bones and joints, or tension in skeletal muscles. The Barral Institute has a list of published research on the benefits of visceral osteopathy, including a study on mobilisation of the kidney with diagnostic ultrasound (PDF).

Our osteopaths may have had experience of treating patients presenting with certain conditions who have improved following osteopathic treatment, please contact us for details.

Osteopathic treatment of children is a specialism of our osteopaths, whom have had extensive postgraduate training in paediatric osteopathy.

Osteopathy in the United Kingdom has been statutorily registered since 1993, osteopaths practising in the UK are required by law to hold current registration with the General Osteopathic Council. Registration means that the osteopath:
- Is a regulated health professional
- Is trained and qualified
- Is required to keep their knowledge and skills up to date
- Is required to have professional indemnity insurance
- Welcomes any feedback on the care provided and operates a complaints procedure.

Complaints:
We offer a professional service and hope your experience will be a good one, but if you are not satisfied in any way please direct your issues to reception in the first instance, or one of the osteopaths at the clinic, either verbally or in writing. If you are not satisfied with the outcome you can contact the Institute of Osteopathy on 01582 488455, or if you are still not satisfied, contact the General Osteopathic Council, 176 Tower Bridge Road, London, SE1 3LU.
