Hi, I'm Julia,

I grew up playing in my mother's herb garden in South Africa, and ​loved the way herbs help so many conditions, like they've done for millennia.

Many years later, and after 3 years of full time study, I graduated as a herbalist whilst living in Australia. The extensive training taught me how all the body systems work together, and which herbs and nutrients treat specific disease states safely and effectively. 

My dream would be that all public health systems  in the world had a wholistic approach to healthcare, with a focus on preventative health care, and all modalities of natural medicine freely available, alongside conventional medicine, because health care is not "one size fits all".

How it works...

I have a holistic consult with you to take a full medical history. I hold space for you, and listen to your story, so that I understand where you are coming from - the more you tell me, the more I can help.

We discuss your health goals and priorities, treatment options, and the most appropriate approach for the best outcome for you, not just symptom management with a band-aid, but investigating to find the root cause of your dis-ease. 

I use my knowledge and years of clinical experience of using herbs and specific nutrients (targeted supplements), and dietary and lifestyle advice is always part of the treatment plan.

Herbal therapeutics for...

Although my main speciality is treating the gut, there are really not many health issues that herbs cannot help with - and I am not being biased!

Herbs are very underrated, they are extremely safe with no side effects (if taken in the prescribed dose!), and very effective at helping ease and overcome a wide range of conditions, such as:

​​

  • Digestive: Constipation, diarrhoea, IBS, SIBO, bloating, stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, Coeliac disease, Helicobacter pylori, parasites, high or low stomach acidity, gallbladder issues

  • Hormonal: PMS, irregular periods, infertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, perimenopause, menopause, PCOS

  • Hyper- and Hypothyroid hormone

  • Babies & Children: recurring infections, eczema, psoriasis, sleep issues, bedwetting, worms 

  • Detoxification and liver restoration 

  • Chronic conditions: cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders, chronic stress

  • Inflammatory health conditions: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), ME, autoimmune disease, allergies, intolerances

  • Neurologic: depression, anxiety, migraines, memory problems, brain fog

  • Metabolic & Endocrine: diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, weight gain, weight loss

  • Adrenal: stress, exhaustion

  • Acute diseases: colds, flu, chicken pox, measles

  • Poor immunity: recurring infections

  • Sleep: sleep apnoea, insomnia

Continued Professional Development ('CPD')

To maintain registration as a herbalist with my association (The Association of Naturopathic Practitioners), I need to complete at least 20 hours of CPD every year. This ensures that I continue updating my knowledge and keep abreast of new research.

This makes me serve better as a practitioner in clinical practice. Below are the topics I've done:​

  • Iridology, Bach Flower Remedies, and Australian Bush Flower Essences

  • Tissue salts/Celloids Mineral Therapy

  • Natural Solutions for Mood, Compulsion & Addiction Disorders

  • Natural Solutions for Brain Gut Health

  • Transiting Menopause

  • Optimising Menopausal Health

  • Impact of Non-Ionising Radiation​ 

  • Re-thinking Inflammation and Allergies

  • Clinical aspects of gut testing

  • Clinical application of digestive enzymes
