Hi, I'm Deanna.
I am a registered Naturopath & Medical Herbalist, with a Bachelor in Natural Medicine (with Distinction). I am also trained in Quantum Reflex Analysis (kinesiology).
I have always had an interest in natural health, and spent many years in brand & product development roles within the natural health industry before completing my naturopathy degree. My mission is to help people to thrive, naturally:
“I am passionate about helping people attain their individual health goals. I delve deep to identify underlying causes of illness and imbalance, and provide holistic, personalised plans that support and empower people on their journey to optimal health and vitality."
If you have any specific health concerns you would like help with, or just want to optimise your health, then please get in touch. I am currently working as a naturopath for a natural health company, but am available some evenings and weekends for in-person (I am based in Meadowbank, Auckland) or online consultations.
Naturopaths take an holistic approach to health. We 'treat the whole person’, and take into account all the factors that can contribute to ill health, including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, genetic, environmental, and social factors. We aim to get to the root cause of disease and ill health (we don't just treat the symptoms!).
Vis medicatrix naturae - 'the healing power of nature' - is a core principle of naturopathy. The body has an innate ability to heal itself. Naturopaths support the healing process, and help to restore balance to the body and enhance overall vitality.
Health plans are individualised, and usually include some dietary and lifestyle advice, as well as a herbal medicine and/or nutritional supplement recommendations.
Naturopathy can help with many health concerns, including the following...
Bloating, Reflux, Irregular bowel motions, IBS, SIBO...
Stress, Anxiety, Depression
PMS, Endometriosis, PCOS,
Preconception, Pregnancy, Postpartum
Plus many others...
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Fatigue, low energy
What is Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA)?
QRA may be used during a consultation. QRA is an advanced system of kinesiology using medically recognised acupressure points. It combines aspects of traditional Chinese therapy with the latest findings in bio-energetic therapy to help gain insight into what the body may need to support healing.
During a QRA session the key acupressure points on the body are tested to determine a weak or strong bio-energetic response. QRA helps identify organs, glands and body systems that are energetically weak, and can discover hidden barriers to healing such as infections, parasites and toxicity. A component of QRA is to be able to assess the energetic strength of supplements and foods specific to a person. Advanced QRA techniques allow the clearing of both emotional blocks and physical traumas that may be preventing a person from achieving optimal health.
QRA can be used to assess food sensitivities, immune stressors, emotional blocks, physical trauma, and product bio-compatibility (identifies which specific nutrients/herbs are beneficial).
“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well”
