Naturopathy Hokitika, West Coast

Naturopathy comes from a philosophy that emphasises the healing power of nature.
I use herbal medicine, nutrition, flower essences, and diet and lifestyle changes depending on what is needed for each person’s unique situation.

The aims of naturopathic treatment include:

Herbal medicine

Herbs have been used by different cultures for thousands of years and herbal medicine is still the most widely practised system of healing with over 80% of the world’s people using it as their primary therapy. Herbal medicine is the oldest system of healing, preceded perhaps only by love (energy healing) and hands.
At its core, herbal medicine is about treating the whole person with whole herbs. Herbs excel at nourishing; rebuilding; and at bringing the body back into balance with itself over time.

Herbal medicine as I practice it is a mix of traditional Western herbal knowledge and modern herbal research. I also use herbs from TCM, Ayurvedic, and rongoa rakau traditions.
I believe our health is intimately aligned with the health of our planet and its ecosystems. All herbs I use are sourced from sustainable suppliers and are made in an ethically sound manner with regard to growing, harvesting, processing and respecting intellectual property rights.
