I'm Kirsty Richards (DipHomNZ) the founder of Wholebeing Health. I'm passionate about health, wellness, and Homeopathy.
In addition to helping people and animals become well, my other passion is empowering families and individuals to learn how to use Homeopathy at home to treat themselves, their families and their pets.
Homeopathy has been used worldwide since the 1800's, and is now one of the most widely used alternative therapies in the world.
My journey to Homeopathy
I've always had an interest in natural health, probably due to my own ongoing ill health as a child (severe tonsilitis every winter and given so many antibiotics they poisoned my system as an 8-year-old and I had to have my stomach pumped - I'm now allergic to Penicillin!). I had a career in journalism initially and I continued to dabble with natural medicine for years, opting for non-harmful alternatives wherever possible.
When I became pregnant with my eldest child over 20 years ago, I instinctively knew that I wanted my pregnancy and his birth to be as natural as possible.
I wanted to have a safe alternative to use for my pregnancy-related issues, that wouldn't affect my unborn baby. I really knew nothing about Homeopathy at that time, but to my surprise and delight, the remedies I took worked! Seeing the success of Homeopathy during my pregnancy journey inspired me to become a Homeopath and in 2010 I graduated as a DipHomNZ from the former Bay of Plenty College of Homeopathy (now known as the College of Natural Health & Homeopathy). I'm based on Waiheke Island, New Zealand, and work with individuals, families, and pets throughout New Zealand and worldwide online. In 2020 I was invited to join the International team of Homeopaths at Homeopathy247.com and I'm proud to be affiliated with a team of world-renowned Homeopaths. In my spare time I spend lots of time in nature, hiking, walking at the beach with my dog, exploring the country in campervan, and spending time with my family.
My clients range from babies (including pre-birth), right through to the elderly, and even the family pet!
Although Homeopathy has been in use for over 200 years - it's the medicine of the future. Check out my online shop for Bach Flower remedies, Homeopathic remedies, kits, and more.
