Welcome to Essential Naturopathy,
My name is Patricia, I am a qualified naturopath and herbalist.
My passion for health started when I was 12 years old and had tried many methods to fix my own health problems with conventional methods without much success.
I came across a book that explained that making changes to my lifestyle and diet could be the answer.
From the age of 12 I started cooking my own meals, using a variety of herbs and after about three to six months started to see the results I was wanting.
For me my issue was cystic acne.
I was a little bit overweight and I was tired all the time. As a teenager I was self concious about this.
I had tried every face cream, was prescribed the contraceptive pill at 14 only to find that nothing changed things for the long-term.
In fact some of the prescriptions left me with hormonal imbalances after I got off them and usually the problems came back.
When I started to incorporate nutrition and herbal medicine the results came.
People commented that my skin looked clearer, my eyes were brighter and I had even lost weight.
I felt energetic,like I found the vitality I was looking for.
This started my passion for health and wellness.
I saw the results first hand now I wanted to share this with others.
I became a fitness professional and completed a Bachelor degree in Nutrition & Naturopathy.
My passion and specialised area is in herbal medicine.
I have always been fascinated by the fact that every plant contains their own little powerhouse of constituents that give that plant its medicinal effect and qualities.
I love creating herbal medicines for people to enhance their health and wellbeing.
