Kate Knappik - Naturopathic Nutritionist
"I decided to become a pharmacist as I wanted to help people to get better.
After over 10 years of work in the community pharmacy I sadly realized that conventional medicine is focused mostly on managing symptoms. The true root cause of the ill health is quite often left uncovered and patients continue to take medications for years or a lifetime.
I am not against medications as they can save lives (especially in acute conditions, emergency cases and life threatening bacterial infections).
But I also believe in body's great capacities to heal itself. Good nutrition, exercise, sunlight, sleep and stress management are the best doctors of all!
I speak from experience
I have experienced the power of naturopathic approach myself. After several years of constant digestive problems, skin issues and tiredness I have resolved it all by changing my diet and working on relaxation.
My unique approach combines modern medical knowledge with traditional naturopathic wisdom, trying to find the bridge between the two.
