Naturopathy is based on 3 very simple core principles that are organic and fundamental to how we function.
- The body is self healing and can recover from any condition as metabolic function is restored. This is quantum healing, creating the energy to allow the body to heal itself.
- In order to restore and preserve health, one must remove any barriers to the healing process and restore the body’s natural ability to recover.
- It is imperative to find the root cause of most conditions and not just treat the symptoms allowing the body to return to health and happiness
How to find the root cause?
Hormones are ruled by proteins and enzymes and proteins and enzymes are ruled by minerals. That's just now how the human body works. In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, the system can make use of the minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.
The root cause is determined with appropriate testing and careful interpretation of the results. Once we determine what areas of your body may not be functioning well, we can then implement a healing strategy
How do we treat you?
After determining a root cause, we restore function and remove any underlying obstructions to your healing, naturally
True holistic health focuses on the body as a whole
Our programs are designed with this principle in mind: we are all different and we all need to be supported on our healing journey
We also try to make things simple!

Hi Gretta,I would just like to say a very big "Thank You" for your impact on Darragh. His energy began to return in March and has been improving exponentially ever since. The guy who has been practically housebound for years is now climbing Torc Mountain in Killarney. You have literally given me my son back and he can now look forward to going to college and re-joining the human race. You were the last throw of the dice, he was sick of doctors and alternative people as nobody had actually improved his quality of life. His peak flow is now averaging 650. I think I can cancel his next appointment at the Difficult Asthma Clinic in CUH! You have literally delivered a miracle to this household, he turned 20 at the weekend and it was the first birthday in years where he was healthy and able to look forward with confidence to his future. Many thanks,
Working with Gretta shortly after my breast cancer diagnosis simply empowered me to face this journey with a calmness greater than I felt initially. She explained so much to me during my consultations about how our bodies work and the power we have to self heal. Almost one year on Gretta is still a part of this journey with me and I can confidentially say that she pulled me up when I fell down. I will always opt for a thermography scan over mammograms; they are painless, accurate and can detect a problem a lot earlier than other scans. Thank you Gretta for everything.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
I attended Gretta Cullen for assistance with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and she treated the whole endocrine system. l was offered testing of adrenal gland function together with full functional analysis of recent blood work and also thyroid fully investigated including antibody screening reverse T3 free T4 and T3 ferritin, Vit D level, B 12
All the imbalances were identified & corrected. Gretta explained that no one gland works in isolation so to comprehensively treat PCOS it is important to treat the person as a whole and identify their individual imbalances
I hadn't attended my endocrinologist in over 3 years until just recently and he was extremely happy with my blood test results overall. Needless to say I'm very happy with the treatment I've received and would have no hesitation recommending Gretta and indeed Thermography Clinic lreland to anyone
I attended Thermography Clinic Ireland recently. My history is, my sibling passed away a year ago from an aggressive form of Breast Cancer. I am aware that I have to be checked regularly because of this. I've attended hospital for a few mammograms, one of which came back with a query
I'm happy to say that my results from Thermography showed me that I'm at a normal range at the moment. This procedure was non-invasive and I felt very comfortable with it. Results were back as quick as a mammogram would be, and there was no radiation involved. l will definitely include Thermography in my yearly assessment of my breast health
l highly recommend Thermography Clinic lreland. l found Gretta Cullen is so great to work with and made me feel comfortable when l come in for my appointment. I am grateful for this clinic as they are monitoring my breast health and happily I can say that I have been healthy with no issues
Its great to know that they this clinic concentrates on bringing awareness to the community of the importance of regular breast exams and provides thermography a non-invasive, radiation free for of breast assessment
I am so glad I heard about this test and want to pass this option on to others
I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful experience I had this past Tuesday at your clinic for a Thermography screening. Your professionalism and easy going manner made me feel comfortable and at ease right from the minute I walked through your doors
I have never had a mammogram but have heard from MANY of my friends that have had them done, what a horrible experience it was for them. I will definitely be recommending they come and see you!!
I would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful I am for Thermography. Without this procedure I would not have been diagnosed in the early stages of invasive ductal carcinoma
Thermography is a very painless and valuable procedure in which I would recommend for early detection. My thermography appointment was scheduled for the beginning of May 2014, following this process I was diagnosed with breast cancer
I am grateful for the Gretta’s knowledge and compassion and cannot recommend Thermography Clinic lreland highly enough
l went for this screening yesterday and was really impressed. Sure beats being flattened!
