Janine Sinclair, Reg Naturopath and Medical Herbalist (BNatMed)
Janine Sinclair qualified as a naturopath and medical herbalist in 2021 but her journey started in childhood when doctors were unable to find any cause or solution for long term stomach pain that had her curled up on the floor in pain. Finally with the help of a naturopath the pain was eliminated through dietary changes, nutritional supplementation, and herbal medicine.
Following a career in news media, Janine was inspired to enrol in the Bachelor of Natural Medicine at South Pacific College of Natural Medicine, when experiencing her own challenges with perimenopause. She now combines her media career with her passion for natural health. Janine believes that her experiences in both worlds helps her to better understand and help her clients.
Janine draws on traditional and evidence-based natural medicines, nutrition and lifestyle practices to support you on your journey to health, wellbeing and vitality. She believes that natural medicine is complementary to conventional health treatments.
Janine has completed an internship at House of Health, under the guidance of Sharon Erdrich, giving her a strong foundation in working with digestive issues including IBS and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
