About Me - The Human & Animal Homeopath
Hi, I'm Kirsty Richards - DipHomNZ and this is 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 18 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.
My clients range from babies (including pre-birth), right through to the elderly, and even the family pet!
I'm passionate about empowering families to learn how to use Homeopathy safely and effectively in the home. 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.
