Hello! My name is Rares (pronounced ‘Ra-resh’).
I am qualified practitioner in Herbal Medicine, Naturopathy, and Iridology. As a practitioner it gives me great pleasure to give advice to others and help them on their journey of healing.
I am a professional member of both The Association of Naturopathic Practitioners and The General Naturopathic Council. I am also fully insured to practice Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy; you are in safe hands!
My work involves working with plants and foods to help bring the body back to its natural state of healing. Identifying imbalances and the underlying causes help me to understand the support which your body needs to bring back his ability to heal.
I have spent years learning about the human body and what it needs to stay vibrant and healthy, and my mission now is to help as many people as I can to live the most vibrant and healthy lives possible by making healthy choices. We live in a world of ever increasing complexity and confusion around what it means to live healthfully but you can always improve the state of your wellbeing and help yourself by giving your body what it needs.
Herbal Medicine is the oldest know medicine and evidence goes back to more than 5000 years in the practice of “Ayurveda”. Medicinal plants where used from immemorial times as foods and medicine with evidence in India, China, Iran, Egypt, Greece and beyond. Medicines prescribed are made entirely from plants and they vary based on the patient’s needs. The complex constituents of the plants work in synergy with each other and the body to help return it to its natural state of well being. In a modern context Herbal Medicine combines orthodox medical knowledge with traditional and scientific understanding of medicinal plants.
Naturopathy is a medical system that evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches popular in Europe during the 19 century. These approaches give the body the right conditions to self-correct if applied correctly. An Naturopathic practitioner can help with: • Dietary and lifestyle changes • Stress reduction • Herbs and other dietary supplements • Bach flower remedies and tissue salts • Practitioner guided detoxification • Iridology – a powerful diagnostic tool
Iridology studies the eye and mostly the iris which is like a fingerprint. The iris is a long–term genetic pattern, a kind of blue print of inheritance. Knowing how to read your unique constitution through the study of iridology allows a practitioner to have a better understanding of your body and can be used as a tool to identify weakness or strengths in the body.
