Let me help you take back control of your health
Naturopathy is a science and an art. It is a complete system of health care, working with the tools that nature has provided to enable people to obtain optimal health. Naturopaths work holistically. Every body system is interconnected, so the principal of Naturopathy is to treat the body as a whole, rather than breaking down systems and just treating that particular system.
Up to 80% of people worldwide rely on herbs for primary healthcare. Since the beginning of time, herbs have been used to prevent and treat illness. Approximately half of all the pharmaceutical drugs have originally been discovered from nature. I am a herbalist who offers a variety of herbs in liquid and tablets for many different health conditions.
You can’t use the wrong type of petrol for your car and expect it work well, just as you can’t feed your body the wrong food and expect it to stay healthy. Good nutrition is vital for good health. Every person is unique so not all foods suit everyone. I will help you understand the benefits and disadvantages of eating certain foods so you can improve your health in the present and the future.

I’m so grateful for Andrea’s counsel, encouragement and expertise in nutrition, natural meds and for her sincere care to journey with me to greater health and well being.”
