Dr Paloma Velásquez

Paloma Velásquez was born in Chile, where she graduated as a medical doctor from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2009. After working in the Chilean medical health system, she felt the need to learn other ways to help patients maintain optimal health and support prevention of disease.

She arrived in New Zealand/Aotearoa in 2011, and successfully completed the Diploma of Aromatherapy (2014) and Bachelor of Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine (2018) at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies.

Since then, Paloma has worked as a naturopath, doing health consultations and educational activities in the community.

Paloma believes in integrative medicine, good nutrition, herbs as medicine and a healthy lifestyle.

Consultations with Paloma are holistic, and personalised. Her medical background means she has in-depth knowledge of a wide range of health conditions.

I suffer migraines and I have been supported by Verity with a naturopath plan. I am still on my journey but after one month I have seen improvements in my energy and ability to focus at work. Verity is amazing to work with! She is super calm, patient and genuine. It is evident she really cares about her clients. I highly recommend her and House of Health in general 🙂Jan ThorburnJan Thorburn ★★★★★ I went to Sharon at House of Health several years ago having been diagnosed with Crohns by the hospital. I no longer have a Chrohns diagnosis. I believe that is due to Sharon's careful, very informed care and guidance at House of Health.Magdalena BofillMagdalena Bofill ★★★★★ Paloma Velasquez is a fantastic naturopath who has made significant a difference in my quality of life during my menopause transition. I totally recommend her!Clara ChaconClara Chacon ★★★★★ I decided to try with natural medicine years ago when my daughter was diagnosed with asthma, and they wanted to medicate her with inhalers. I was fortunate to find Paloma Velasquez, and thanks to the customized formulas she did for my daughter, the herbs, and some dietary changes, my daughter has been asthma-free for over 2 years. Incredibly grateful to her dedication and highly recommended for her professionalism.Leon ErdrichLeon Erdrich ★★★★★ Looks for the cause of the gut problem instead of covering the symptoms. High quality healthcareAndrew Haddleton (GIG Internet Marketing)Andrew Haddleton (GIG Internet Marketing) ★★★★★ I took a family member to see Sharon as they had an ongoing stomach problem. The GP had run tests and prescribed various pills but they didn't make any difference.As soon as Sharon saw the same test results, she immediately identified the probable issue and recommended a new food regime.Over a six-week period, the person dropped 15 kgs, the pain went away and, now looks and feels vastly different.They see the new food options as a long-term lifestyle change.I urge anyone who has a stomach issue to go to see Sharon at House of Health.js_loader
