Furthermore, we will follow up your case to ensure you receive the full benefits of our service. We use Liquid Medicinal Herbs and High Potency Vitamins to redress imbalances in the body. Herbs are made up of a wide range of active constituents, that work synergistically together. We do not isolate single constituents, but recognise the value of whole plant extractions. Herbs have a long history of use, dating back 5000 years. Our clinic also uses Native Rongoa Maori where relevant, thus maintaining a commitment to the Kaupapa of Aotearoa.

Let's face it, when all is well, we take our health for granted, but when we are unwell, the effect can be devastating. Missed work days, life is less enjoyable, maybe we are unable to digest food properly. It can be awful! Seeing a Naturopath can help you return to wellness and reduce the likelihood of relapses. ``An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure`` We will endevour to heal you and furthermore, show you how to help yourself in the future and how to read the sign of imbalance, so you can maintain your wellness in the future.
Sometimes, we need a little extra help to achieve health. This is where vitamins are, yes that's right! VITAL! Low levels or the wrong types of vitamins can create their own health issues. A Naturopath will give you professional guidance, offering the highest quality and most relevant vitamins for your case. We always return to diet, however, and food sources, once we have achieved health stability.

I got sick a couple of years ago with a painful neurological condition that dramatically changed how I see the world. At multiple stages in a 3 year battle I didn’t think I would be able to continue photography. My left arm, leg and chest became so sensitized that my kids couldn’t hold my hand, touch me and things like the vibration from driving was painful. It was and still can be a weird and scary time. Christine-Jane is a Naturopath and friend from primary school who went above and beyond to help me in a really tough period of my life. While down in the South Island over the Christmas period, I have gifted a photography shoot as my way of saying thank you for all her amazing advice and help. People like Christine-Jane make the world go around. Words can’t express what a gem she is!!!
During our consultation with Helen, the possibility of having a DNA test was discussed. This test would give Helen much more information about us and our health concerns. After careful consideration we decided to go ahead. When the test results came back we had a further consultation. Helen had produced a Personalized Wellness Program from the results. This covered an analysis of our DNA profile. With recommendations on diet,exercise and a list of supplements that would be most beneficial for each of us. I have got to say that this was much more detailed that I expected.It covers your susceptibility to things like diabetes, lactose intolerance and much more. Since having this consultation and implementing the recommendations we have both had improvements in our energy and general health.
