I'm Terrie Beresford (a Sydney based Naturopath), allow me to introduce myself.
It was through my own health crisis whilst working overseas in banking in Tokyo, Japan that I realised there was more to life than money and that Western medicine was not the answer to a long healthy life.
At that time I was sleeping only every second night, had constant stomach pains, anxiety and headaches. Unfortunately due to cultural differences it was difficult for me to find any professional medical or natural medicine options which were effective for me.
It was at this time that I took control of my health and decided to stop processed food, caffeine, sugar and alcohol and take up the regular practice of yoga and meditation. I also quit my well paid banking job and travelled around the world for eight months.
This experience ultimately led me to study and practice naturopathy. Since then I have never looked back and am happy to report that since starting my practice as a naturopath in 2005, I have not had one sick day.
I currently hold qualifications in Naturopathy, Nutrition and Remedial Massage from Nature Care College. I also have a Bachelor degree in Health Sciences and is am an accredited member with the Australian Traditional Medicine Society.
I am happy to say I have seen many miraculous transformations through educating people on the benefits of eating real foods together with herbal medicines and supplements and lifestyle recommendations such as filtered water, skin brushing, infra red saunas, grounding, meditation, yoga and taichi or other forms of exercise.
Being a truly holistic practitioner, I believe it is essential to consider all aspects of my clients, including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
I am continually undertaking further studies in the Health Sciences to maintain my position at the cutting edge of complementary healthcare and provide you with the most up-to-date treatment options.
I am incredibly passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with others and have authored a recipe and lifestyle guide “Feel Good with Real Food”. I am also a contributing author to a number of international bestselling books including “Healing Your Immune System Naturally”, “Life After Lupus”, “Age is An Attitude”, and “Creating Confident Kids”
I feel privileged that I have the opportunity to educate and make a difference to what I believe is our most important possession “Our Health”.
For me naturopathy is not just a job but a way of life.
