Welcome to the Clinic of
Natural Health Medicine

I’m Maria Harpas, the director of Natural Health Medicine, Clinical Nutritionist and a Naturopathic practitioner with over 12 years experience.

I believe that you need to be guided by what your biochemistry reveals, by the symptoms you have, by your family's health history and by what you can manage in your life right now 🙂  You then need someone to step you through in easily and realistic, manageable ways to change what is required. Imagine being guided to achieve this and at the same time be educated in a practical way, avoiding fads, trends, depressing groups that confuse rather than support and "health cults" that have no idea of your particular health strengths and weaknesses.

We need to ensure a mindfulness of the medical approach and that we respect and value when the marrying of medical and natural approaches are needed. We need to work with doctors when needed. At the same time we need to ensure that we are not just shutting down symptoms with drugs and ignoring the body's screaming needs, which will only lead to more health issues.

Because ultimately we want to improve how you feel, how your body functions and how to avoid future health issues - for a better life !

Improvements in your health happen through lifestyle medicine: food, movement, sleep, stress management, environmental influence, social connection and if needed integrating orthodox medicine when called for!


First do no harm

A Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist will ensure that all treatments aim to maintain and/or improve an individual’s current health.

If a patient requires more specific or advanced medical care, a Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist will always refer that patient to an appropriate healthcare practitioner.


Treat the whole person

Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist will address all body systems that may be playing a role in a particular condition, including the most powerful of all – the mind.



By implementing certain diet and lifestyle strategies, or using specific nutritional and herbal medicine, a Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist can help guide a very specific treatment plan for an individual in order to prevent illness and disease, or prevent the worsening of a condition already diagnosed.


Find and treat the cause

A Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist will take a thorough case history to ensure that whenever possible, the treatment addresses any potential causes of illness/disease rather than suppressing just the symptoms.



A Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist aims to educate their clients on what is going on in their body, and how particular nutrients, diet and lifestyle changes, or herbal medicines may help.


The healing power of nature

A Naturopath Practitioner or National Medicine Specialist will use food and its nutrients, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes to improve an individual’s health and wellbeing.
