NATUROPATHIC PHYSICAL MEDICINE provides a philosophical naturopathic perspective, as well as practical clinical applications, for manual and physical approaches to health care. A wide range of bodywork and movement approaches and modalities are evaluated in relation to their ability to be appropriately used in naturopathic treatment and rehabilitation settings. The model of care emphasised in this text recognizes that naturopathically oriented therapeutic interventions usually focus on achieving one or all of the following: enhancement of function so that the person, system or part, can better self-regulate in response to adaptive demands; modification or removal of adaptive load factors; and symptomatic relief without creation of significant additional adaptive changes.

Dr Liana wants us to understand that the wrong food can make us ill – and the right food can make us healthy and vibrant. Food is one of the most powerful medicines and can balance all of our systems, mind, body and emotions. After a near death experience, Liana was told she would spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. She discovered acupuncture and along with physiotherapy, she was back on her feet. Dr Liana is convinced that western science (quantum physics & biology) and eastern medicine talk about the same paradigms. She believes we must maintain every aspect of ourselves. The body, mind, emotions, organs, chakras, the aura – and what we eat, our food, is at the very core of healing ourselves completely.
