Whether you just need some relief from a bothersome symptom or you need help getting to the bottom of chronic long standing health problems I’m the natural health care practitioner you’ve been looking for. My name is Liz Johnstone and I’m a Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Nutritionist, born and raised in the Hunter with 20 years experience in the field of health, almost half of which is in natural health. With a degree in nutrition and dietetics and a health promotion background I became interested in natural health when I had exhausted the mainstream medical system for some persistent health problems. I then trained to be a Medical Herbalist with renowned Hunter Herbalist Denis Stewart (the “Godfather of Australian Herbalism”) and later completed an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy. I am fascinated by the chemistry of plants and the innate wisdom of traditional cultures in using particular plants for specific illnesses and my practice is very much influenced by both levels of knowledge. I am passionate about helping my clients achieve their health goals. I have a special interest in digestive health and fertility and am a member of the National Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA), the governing body of Australian herbalists.
I only ever use high quality, practitioner strength, Australian products from reputable, innovative, evidence based manufacturers such as Metagenics, Mediherb and Herbal Extract Company Of Australia. So if you are looking for a degree qualified, experienced practitioner who has had to negotiate the medical system personally and can guarantee quality products you have come to the right place.
