Welcome to ‘about me Den’ and what lead me to homeopathy and the other modalities I utilise and offer as a homeopathic health consultant.
I may offer either or both homeopathy or flower essences and food and lifestyle support and information as needed.
It is 23 years since I graduated from the Bay of Plenty College in 1996 (now CNHH) My close friend and ‘study buddy’ established well & truly initially as both a homeopathic health clinic and health retail outlet to begin our professional practise as homeopaths. We were introduced then to the FES Flower essences and they became a focal attraction in our store and drew locals in from all around Ponsonby. This inspired the development of the well & truly flower essence blends
A couple of years later we closed the store and I became involved and worked with The Kids Clinic which later became part of well & truly. I continue to work extensively with families and children.
My first homeopathic ‘experience’ was many years ago when my children were young. My daughter had a terrible time teething and after months of difficult nights and days, a friend who used homeopathy suggested the remedy Chamomilla. It was completely new to me but I was desperate to try anything that might help. I was amazed, my daughter’s discomfort and demeanour changed in 15 minutes it was quite unbelievable to me at the time. The seeds were sown though. This began my ongoing interest and passion in homeopathy which continues today. I still find myself at times in awe, at the level of life changes and health impact homeopathy can excite.
Once you experience the benefits of homeopathy you can’t help but want to learn a little more and use it when you can and have a need. It provides great home health support and gives parents confidence to overcome the frightening experience of managing an unwell child and is completely complimentary general medical treatment.
Over the years my interests and personal health journey lead me to investigate and learn a variety of health modalities. As a young mum, our family lived in a rural area, within a community where we tried as much as possible to grow and make all our own food. The growing and tending to plants for food and preparing and preserving food has given me great appreciation and enjoyment of food. I do believe ‘food is medicine’ and as much as possible will encourage and support people, to aim to get their nutrition from fresh, real food. ‘We are what we eat’ and today, much of our food is contaminated, so even more important to ensure what we are eating is healthy and nutritious.
However our lifestyles today make that more difficult as time is our most precious and great limited resource. This adds the other challenge for many, increased stress levels impacting people’s mental and emotional health.
This is where flower essences have an increasingly relevant role to play in our future mental health care. They help us see ourselves from a ’bigger picture perspective’ and provide support and strength through stressful times. A personalised essence blend can help us through the most difficult, stressful and complex times. As such, homeopathy, flower essences, food and health guidance are what I offer.
As a volunteer of the NZ Homœopathic Society a fabulous organisation and resource, I’d recommend anyone interested in homeopathy, go to their website NZ Homœopathic Society This volunteer run and administered organisation is now entering its 68th year! An incredible feat in today’s world and expresses the passion homeopathy excites in people who have the opportunity to experience it.
As a registered homeopath with the NZ Council of Homeopaths, ongoing learning never ceases, the interest and enthusiasm continues. I feel very fortunate to be in my role of working with people and their families in their health recovery journeys. I love seeing the changes that occur for people as we work together and do my utmost to ensure we get the best results we can.
