As a naturopath with
over 25 years experience, Scott Brisbane follows the 'less is best'
principle. The focus of his naturopathic practice is to encourage
changes in the client towards health and balance. Scott prefers client
initiated change with minimal take away remedies. In keeping with this
philosophy, he uses acupuncture and craniosacral treatments to help
stimulate the self healing abilities of the body. He also occasionally
prescribes homeopathic and flower essence remedies to help the healing

encourage intuitive eating along with elimination diets. Often, it is
not what we take that helps us but what we leave out. The body has a
remarkable ability to heal itself given the right conditions and
creating those conditions can sometimes be as simple as eliminating or
decreasing one food or food group from your diet.
