The Atherton Natural Medicine Centre assists people in achieving and maintaining good health so they can enjoy a happy and vital state of wellbeing.
Patients suffering from a wide variety of illnesses attend the clinic and are treated with natural remedies such as homeopathy, dietary advice, nutritional supplementation and herbal medicine. David Pitcher is the resident naturopath and has extensive training in natural medicine through the completion of a Bachelor of Naturopathy at Southern Cross University in Lismore NSW. While at university David completed a study titled “A Review of the Scientific Literature in Relation to the Homeopathic Support of Patients with Tumours or Cancer, including an Historical & Clinical Comparison”. He is a professional member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association and a member of the Australian Homeopathic Association. David is known to his patients as an understanding and compassionate healer, and has a particular interest in mental/emotional health issues including, anxiety, grief, and depression.
An initial consultation is extensive and usually covers the patient’s personal and family health history, medical history and medication use, any physical or mental/emotional traumas, and a physical examination if required. The initial consultation lasts for approximately one and a half hours, during which time a detailed record is taken so that the most appropriate course of treatment can be selected for the individual. This enables David to determine the underlying cause of a person’s illness and treat it directly rather than just continually treating the symptoms produced by the illness. In this way a person’s constitution is strengthened and their susceptibility to illness in the future is reduced.
