A Naturopath or Medical Herbalist will take a full history of your case. This includes your medical history, diet, lifestyle ad any contributing factors that may be influencing your health condition. We may order further tests or use current medical tests to develop a working diagnosis. Then we will produce your personalised wellness plan. We will follow up your case to ensure you receive the full benefits of our service.
A Medical Herbalist uses 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. 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 Mahi of Aotearoa.
We will ask you to bring any recent blood tests or other relevant information with you to your appointment. Your Medical Herbalist/Naturopath will take a full history of your case, which should take around an hour. During this time we will want to know an average days menu, including drinks and any other important additions. We will need to know any medications you’re on, both past and current. We will also ask you about your family history on both your mother’s and father’s side, and any operations or hospitalisations you may have experienced. Once we have ascertained your full medical situation and settled on a working diagnosis for you, we will create a treatment plan. This may need to be written up and emailed to you the following day, with any herbal remedies or products recommended. Often it will also include some amendments to your diet, as digestive health is a key factor in many conditions. In less complex cases, we can offer you a treatment plan on the spot.

“I originally contacted Christine-Jane rather distraught having suffered from constant headaches and migraines. I had changed my diet completely, and was exercising in hope that it would help. Alas, it did not. I met with her to discuss my options and began trialing some supplementation. After a few months my headaches and migraines had reduced dramatically and I could actually manage a normal day to day life. I’d put up with it for so long that it became normal for me to suffer. It wasn’t until meeting Christine-Jane that I realised it wasn’t normal, at all! I again, along with my husband Francois, met with Christine-Jane to discuss pregnancy. Francois and I had been wanting to have a child for a while. Since meeting with Christine-Jane previously I had lost 20kgs and was continuing to be healthy, but yet again, we couldn’t seem to manage to work out what we were doing wrong and why we weren’t able to have the baby we so desperately wanted. I was petrified to go to the doctor and have them put us on an array of chemicals to possibly help with conception, so we contacted Christine-Jane to see if she could shed some insight. I was given a specially made herbal tonic and some different nutrients to take daily, Francois was also given nutrients too. We also did a hair intolerance test, to see if any foods or environmental factors were an issue as well. We started these straight away, and within our first cycle (one month) I was pregnant!! Right now, I am 37 weeks pregnant and am due to have our miracle baby boy on 22nd March. Both Francois and I have been on cloud nine these entire nine months of pregnancy and have Christine-Jane to thank for that. Her understanding, caring nature, gentle approach and world of knowledge has helped us both in ways I couldn’t even begin to describe. My headaches and migraines are non-existent and my pregnancy has been so easy because of the help we were given by Christine-Jane. Christine-Jane, you are a lifesaver, literally. You gave me back my passion for life and the understanding that I didn’t have to live in pain. You have also given us the greatest gift we could have possibly ever asked for – A little baby to call our own. I would recommend Christine-Jane and her work in a heartbeat. Don’t suffer in silence!” Much love and blessings, Nicole and Francois Izatt xx
Christine is an excellent Naturopath! “I was recommended by a colleague to pay Christine a visit after suggestions of having adrenal issues. On discovering that I have adrenal fatigue Christine has proven to be invaluable to my recovery, not only because of her knowledge as a naturopathic practitioner but also her first hand experience of unwellness and adrenal issues. Christine is empathetic, patient and a good listener. She comes highly recommended. Lekshe Chodron
