Bettina has been working in the medical field since 1984. She completed 3 years of study in Germany to qualify as a medical assistant, working with GPs and medical specialists before later returning to medical school to become a certified Cytotechnologist. She is internationally certified in the specialised field of cancer diagnosis and has worked in laboratories in both Germany and New Zealand.
Bettina moved to New Zealand in 1998 to follow her life-long interest in nutrition, wellbeing and herbal medicine by enrolling to study at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in Auckland. There she completed Diplomas of Naturopathy, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine plus a Certificate of Massage.
Bettina is passionate about supporting and guiding people on their quest to find balance and optimal health. She has experienced this being achieved through adjusting diet and lifestyle, complemented by the use of appropriate herbal and nutritional medicine. Coming from a medical background she combines traditional and natural therapies that are evidence based and scientifically researched.
Her approach is to holistically address underlying causes as well as symptoms of disease and to create a treatment plan which is tailored to the specific needs of the individual. It is important to her to work with the person and to relate and respond to individual needs and circumstances.
Bettina’s special interests are in preventative care, maintaining vitality, healthy ageing and chronic health conditions including support during and after cancer therapies.
Bettina looks forward to advising, assisting and empowering you towards health, vitality and happiness.
