What Does a Naturopath Do? Perth Naturopath and Herbalist Reveals How Alternative Therapies Helped Heal his Body and Change His Life


PERTH, Australia August 2014 – When Shannon Burford left Australia as a young person in his twenties to travel the world, he had no idea he would return home a broken man, fighting the symptoms of typhoid and dysentery and struggling through the pain and discomfort of thyroid growths and digestive infections.

After losing a lot of strength and weight in the battle, Shannon used his knowledge from a Health Science bachelor degree and evaluated the effects of nutrition on the human body. He concluded he needed to improve his strength and immune system with natural food, herbs and exercise, and by following these rules Shannon’s strength returned, he gained weight and he built up his immune system.

Shannon’s own success with natural alternative therapies inspired him to pursue a career as a naturopath and herbalist, to help others suffering from an illness, pain or disease to heal themselves, locally and around the world.
“I travelled for seven years and got very, very sick. I got back on track with natural therapies and I want to share that feeling with the world,” says Shannon. “I started my business with a heart full of passion to educate people on the importance of nutrition and the power of natural and alternative therapies to overcome illness and disease.”

Shannon’s naturopathic centre, Cura Integrative Medicine, can help patients with complex issues experiencing food allergies, digestive issues, fatigue, autoimmune diseases, autism, diabetes and infertility. Cura Integrative Medicine’s affiliation with leading functional pathology laboratories means holistic health care is offered to patients to maximise wellness.

“Our passion drives us to provide our patients with a unique and extraordinary experience that will help transform their health on all levels,” says Shannon. “Whether it’s a consult for an acute illness, or something you’ve had for a long time, we are here to create value for you, simplify the process and have a little fun along the way.”

So what does a naturopath do? Naturopaths aid in expediting the body’s natural ability to repair and maintain optimum health. It’s the role of a naturopath to determine and eliminate obstacles to good health by assisting in creating a healing environment, inside and out. As a naturopath and herbalist, Shannon tailors a personalised wellness plan for his clients using diet, herbs, lifestyle, testing and nutrition for the best results.

“We appreciate that not everyone understands wellness as much as we do, so we’re here to help with our years of accumulated knowledge around nutrition, alternative therapies, diet and healthy living,” says Shannon. “We love giving health, especially to those that need it. We have given to a range of health charities around the world with the help of our patient contributions. We help a range of causes, including delivering parasite treatments to thousands of children in India, giving vitamin supplements to pregnant African women and providing clean drinking water in Africa.”

Paul Curtis, business owner, investor, and director says, “Shannon knows what you don’t know that you don’t know! He also knows a lot of things your doctors don’t know either. I’ve been amazed by his insights and the humble manner in which he discovers and recommends health solutions. He is someone who truly cares for your situation, who communicates really clearly, and always finds a constructive way forward. We should all have a naturopath and if you don’t have one yet, you should contact Shannon.”
