My name is Sandra Walsh. I have a diploma in Clinical Herbal Medicine from Canterbury College of Natural Medicine and a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry from Canada. I have been a member of New Zealand Association of Medical Herbalists & Natural Health Council of New Zealand.
My training includes the use of medicinal herbs, nutritional supplements, diet, lifestyle advice, and Bach flower remedies.
My family and I emigrated from Canada to New Zealand in 2003. We arrived in this beautiful country with four kids, thirteen suitcases, and no keys. A grand adventure.
My interest in alternative health care began in 2001 with the birth of my Down Syndrome girl. The doctors had no information or advice for me. “Get ready for the Special Olympics,” I was told. I was lost. Through a naturopath in Canada, she became stronger and more alert. I was intrigued.
Imagine my surprise to find the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine right here in Christchurch. Affordable (well, almost!) Local. International qualification. So off I leapt into the world of holistic health. Another grand adventure.
It’s been an absolute joy to study and practice herbal medicine. My learning never stops and it still amazes me at how well it all works.
The world of natural health care can be overwhelming. There are products in chemists, grocery stores, on TV, online, and on the radio. Each one claims it is the best, it will solve all problems, or you can be fitter than an All Black. It’s overwhelming for me and I know herbal medicine!
I can help you negotiate all of that. Together we can sort through herbal & nutritional supplements and tailor treatment to your specific needs. We can work with your doctor’s prescriptions. Let me be your guide.
My practice is located in Heathcote Valley.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give me a call.
Please call, email, or text to book your appointment.
I look forward to meeting you.
