Amanda Teh is a qualified Naturopath and holds a Bachelor of Naturopathy from Nature Care College, Sydney. She is a Practitioner Member of the National Herbalist Australia Association, Practitioner Member of the Australia Traditional Medicine Society, and Member of Complementary Medicine Practitioner Associations Council, Australia.
Amanda’s main interests in natural medicine are with herbal medicine, nutrition, flower remedy and iridology. She believes that our emotional health is just as important as our physical wellbeing - in order to stay healthy, we need to take care of both. She emphasizes a naturopathic diet, which prefers real food over processed food, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables that are organic and locally grown. She prefers to use food as medicine and recommends using natural remedies for some of the most common basic health complaints. In her practice, she educates and empowers individuals to take care of their own wellbeing.
Amanda’s interest in natural medicine came about shortly after losing her father to nasal cancer in 2001. During this time she learnt the pain that patients and their family members go through, as well as how helpless one can feel if they lack knowledge in health and nutrition. This experience had a huge impact on her views on health and the meaning of life. She now believes that people need to take control of their own health, not just for their own wellbeing, but also for their family and loved ones.
