Naturopathy takes a holistic approach to wellness. Naturopathy supports a person in living a healthy lifestyle. The foundations are based on the importance of a wholefood diet, clean, fresh water & air, sunlight, exercise, stress management, and living a life with meaning & purpose. Naturopathy aims to educate the person to look after their health and the health of their family, minimising symptoms of any illness, supporting the body’s capacity to heal, and balancing the body so that disease is less likely to occur in the future. Naturopathy identifies the underlying causes and contributing factors of diseases, and it offers a natural approach to treatment - herbs, supplements, dietary, and lifestyle measures.
This year marks 27 years of naturopathic clinical practice. It's hard for me to believe it too! I graduated as a naturopath, homoeopath, and herbalist at the end of 1994 and started consulting almost immediately. My Naturopathic Clinic, Apothecary, and Apotheca by Anthia Tea & Tisane Store is located in Paddington, Sydney Australia. This is where you will find me seeing patients, blending herbal tonics and creating teas & tisanes. Akademeia by Anthia, our online portal, is where you will find my Courses & Programs, based on over 27 years of Naturopathic know how & clinical experience. My book I am Food - Eating Your Way To Health was published in 2014. It is currently undergoing a new edit and will be relaunched at the end of the year.
The name traces back to Plato's school of philosophy, founded approximately 385 BC at Akademia, a sanctuary of Athena, the goddess of wisdom and skill. It was an area outside of the Athens city walls that originally held a sacred grove and later contained a religious precinct and a public gymnasium.
