Registered Naturopath and Medical Herbalist
Lieke is a fully qualified naturopath with a Bachelor in Natural Medicine from South Pacific college of Natural Medicine and is registered with the New Zealand Association of Medical Herbalists (NZAMH) and New Zealand Society of Naturopaths (NZSN).
Lieke truly believes that the current health care system is in need of a move towards a more sustainable approach to health. A model that focuses more on the clients needs, and addresses health and well being from a holistic and integrated model of care.
For the past six years Lieke has worked in the community service sector, primarily mental health, disability and with autistic children. Prior and in between, she enjoyed being a holistic chef at a women’s wellness centre and vegetarian cafe.
Nutrition will always be at the forefront of treatment basis, backed by lifestyle adjustments and herbal prescription. Herbal medicine being the oldest paradigm of medicine, provides significant advantages for treating many health conditions and is indispensable in supporting an individual through the transition phases to greater health.
Lieke offers genetic profiling which is founded on the science of nutrigenomics (how nutrition effects gene expression), and an understanding that overall health and well being is determined at a cellular level. Personalised genetic profiling offers insight to how our body responds to diet, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle.
Lieke has clinical experience in a wide range of conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, gut and skin complaints, childhood health and disease prevention as well as nervous system support including anxiety and depression (just to name a few).
Lieke looks fondly on how this ancient and increasingly scientifically backed health care system can promote and encourage the well being of families and our greater community.
