Viewing the body as a finely tuned machine with interconnected systems, I choose to take a very holistic approach when it comes to healing. I believe it's important to treat chronic ailments, by looking at the relationship between these different body systems and identifying how underlying factors contribute to the body’s overall pathology. ​ As a naturopath and medical herbalist, I also choose to use practitioner only products of the highest quality, ones that have been assessed and tested for the best results in the human body. Alongside these products I like the idea of health starting in the kitchen. What we put into our body has a huge impact on the way we feel. Food quality and quantity is important, as is remembering and reconnecting with the preparation and meaning behind our food. A steaming pot of ginger tea is good for nausea or circulation, the adding of garlic and basil into a home cooked pasta dish, not only warms the soul, but provides the body with immune boosting goodness (a natural antibiotic, and antioxidants). ​ With a background and certificate in sports management and exercise prescription from NZIS, and a qualification as a registered yoga teacher, my treatment plans always include an element of activity/exercise, as well as nutritional advice, lifestyle adjustments and herbal medicine. ​ With the simple and guided balancing of food, exercise, naturopathic and herbal medicine, health and wellness is not only an investment in ourselves, but also a choice to live our best lives.
