Are you struggling with acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea or recurrent cold sores ?
Experiencing unexplained hair loss? It is often an indication of unbalances in the body and the underlying causes need to be pinpointed to figure out the most indicated treatment options.
Natural remedies, good diet and healthy habits can help improve your symptoms and your daily life.
The skin is a remarkably complex organ which reflects our total health and especially the state of our digestive system and liver. The quality and health of the skin and its repair and rejuvenation processes require specific anti-oxidant nutrients for healing and construction of new skin tissue and protect against free radical damage or stress-related skin conditions. Some key minerals, such as Zinc, are very important when dealing with skin issues to help with wound healing, strengthening the immune system, supporting the hormone production, controlling the inflammation and tissue regeneration.
Food and herbs can also aid in the cleansing process for their detoxifying and anti-bacterial actions. When the liver is overwhelmed with toxins, it becomes less effective at removing them from the circulation. This increases the likelihood of toxins passing into the blood stream causing or aggravating skin conditions.
Many skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea are inflammatory responses of the body that can be helped by eating certain food (essential fatty acids for example) or anti-inflammatory herbs (such as turmeric). Ginger can be used to improve circulation and digestion and to enhance the effectiveness of other herbs and spices. It’s also been shown to modulate biochemical pathways activated in chronic inflammation. Aloe vera can help soothe and cool inflamed skin used topically and, when taken internally, can support the gastrointestinal tract which can also help towards a reduction of skin toxin overload. A sluggish bowel can increase toxic burden which the body may attempt to eliminate through the skin, resulting in a sallow, blemished complexion, or an exacerbation of problems such as psoriasis or eczema. Reduce your body toxic load by choosing a clean diet. Your herbalist will help you with a personalised treatment plan including the foods and herbs that would be right for your body and your condition.
Improve your skin condition by balancing your microbiome and feeding your body with the right herbs & nutrients.
Hair thinning may be caused by a lot of different reasons: lifestyle habits, not getting enough of certain nutrients in your diet (such as iron, folic acid and other minerals), or experiencing chronic stress. It can also be hereditary, from an underlying medical conditions, if you recently had a baby or are going through hormonal changes or if you lost a significant amount of weight in a short amount of time.
Sometimes suffering from immune system deficiencies, a skin disorder or eating disorder can also play a role. Consult your naturopath or medical herbalist to know more about the root cause in your situation and what are the natural remedies available that would help you. A balanced diet, some targeted supplements, essential oils or special haircare can make all the difference.

The support I have received from Katia has been amazing. She listened to my issues and gave me simple but effective solutions and I feel much better because of it. I would recommend Katia at NL Naturopathy to anyone wishing to balance their hormones and improve their overall health and wellbeing!
Having suffered the dreaded menopausal symptoms I had a consultation with Katia. After a thorough investigation of my symptoms and triggers, I was prescribed lotion for a skin irritation and a tincture to return my body to a healthy balanced state. I can’t believe the improvement, I am thrilled with the results and life is more comfortable. I would recommend Katia and her professional approach as a centre of excellence for Naturopathy. With thanks.
As a working mum of two young boys, and dealing with grief, I was so exhausted when I went to see Katia. After one session with her, I was like a new woman. She is exceptionally talented and I highly recommend her.
I cannot recommend Katia more, I thought my hayfever was incurable and was very sceptical about a herbal remedy. After a consultation I was prescribed a tincture drink and eyewash produced by her. This combination taken throughout the hayfever season has totally irradicated my hay fever symptoms. Highly recommended.
After many years of sleeping problems, either getting to sleep or waking in the night, I asked Katia if she could help. I have found the herbal tincture that she supplied very helpful indeed and my sleep patterns are vastly improved. I have used it for quite a while now and have never experienced any negative side effects the next day. Thank you Katia!
I have struggled with a mystery illness for some 18 months or more. Symptoms included an annoying continuous cough and very water eyes. I had tried a multitude of treatments without continued success. Katia prepared a tincture for me that cured my cough within a week and reduced the wateriness in my eyes considerably. The improvements have continued for some months now. I highly recommend her practice.
I have had recurring heel pain which interrupted my sleep with its intensity ever since my first episode of plantar fasciitis. Normal painkiller didn’t help. Katia was recommended to me and after a consultation she made a painkilling oil to rub onto the painful area at night during flare ups. It kills the pain so that I get a good night’s sleep (and I love the smell!)! Thank you so much.
Our 2-year-old daughter had been sick since she started nursery at 10 months, there was never more than about a week before she had caught something new. We were constantly off work with her when she was really ill. Katia was a breath of fresh air, and she provided the sensible advice we needed when I had all but given up hope. Her advice was realistic, and the supplements didn’t require any obscure or expensive purchases. Katia answered follow-up questions and was always friendly to deal with. I could not recommend Katia more highly for sensible, attainable advice, that quite literally changed our lives. Thank you so much Katia, we feel very lucky to have found you!
Katia pinpointed the root cause of my health issues and she found the right herbal remedies for me. My daily life is so much improved as a result, it is life changing! I highly recommend her services.
