Hi I'm Serina Gardner, I am a Bachelor qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist & Nutritionist who specialises in holistic wellbeing - promoting health, laughter and love in a nurturing environment using natural methods to help you regain optimal health.
My passion is in women's and children's health. Being a mother myself I understand how small changes in your childrens' health and your own health can have a dramatic effect on your whole family. With this purpose in mind, I work holistically creating a plan for you based on lifestyle, nutrition and enhanced body function offering continued support to achieve the health and lifestyle you have always wanted.
Since my early twenties I have instinctively been drawn to natural health. My starting point was realizing that I had learnt nothing about nutrition during my teenage years, and had to give myself a quick crash course, which started my passion of reading as many health books as I can find. I then began working in a natural skincare shop. Here I became fascinated with aromatherapy, and began learning about the chemical load of many products, and what ingredients and labels really mean. From there I started making my own natural products as a hobby, and continuing to read as much as I could on nutrition, medicinal herbs, and natural home remedies.
After the birth of my daughter and my husband’s life changing accident in 2007 I realised that life is short and you should do what you want with it! This was huge learning curve but gave me the courage to return to school and complete a Bachelor of Natural Medicine, I learnt about goal setting and following my dreams rather than rather than just talking about it.
After great experience working in Health Shops directly with customers I challenged myself and in 2015, I opened the Natural Family Health Clinic so I could help clients working as a Naturopath and Medical Herbalist. I love listening to clients, helping them set goals, overcome obstacles, find a great life & nutrition balance. I love watching clients become healthier and happier and am very excited to help you and your family enjoy a healthier happier life.
At the Natural Family Health Clinic we specialise in holistic wellbeing, promoting health, laughter and love in a nurturing environment, using natural methods to help you regain optimal health.
Serina is a qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist & Nutritionist who holds a Bachelor of Natural Medicine. Her areas of passion include digestive health, skin health, stress, fatigue and family health, mainly looking after women and children; being a mother herself she understands how small changes in your children's health and your own health can make such dramatic changes to your whole family.
At the Natural Family Health Clinic we offer natural health consultations looking at every aspect of health; seeking to find and address the underlying cause of a health problem rather than just treating the symptoms. Our goal is to listen to and facilitate the body’s own natural healing power using natural non-toxic therapies and restoring balance in the body. We work towards optimal health and wellbeing, preventing ill health, boosting immunity, and assisting with both acute and chronic conditions.
What is included in a consultation?
At the Natural Family Health Clinic an initial consultation usually lasts 60-90 minutes and includes an in-depth case take of your current health and medical history, whilst assessing all the body systems, utlising various diagnostic techniques when appropriate, and assessing any health concerns you may have. Together we will discuss your diet, nutritional status, activity levels, lifestyle, emotions, medical history and how your body is functioning. Then an individual treatment plan is initiated to start your journey towards optimal health.
Your on-going treatment plan may include - nutrition, nutritional supplements, medicinal herbs, bach flowers, homeobotanical therapies, minerals, exercise, stress management and/or lifestyle changes to improve your health, and referrals to applicable health modalities. We may use hair testing to check for food sensitivities, mineral deficiencies or heavy metals; blood tests; or saliva or urine tests. The results of any testing carried out enables us to develop a treatment plan that will ensure you gain the best results.
Follow up appointments provide continued support to help you make the changes needed to obtain optimal health, to keep you motivated, support you to achieve your goals, assess your progress, discuss any changes you may be experiencing, and to amend the plan as your health improves.
As a Naturopath and Medical Herbalist we are very excited to help you and your family enjoy a healthier happier life and look forward to working with you to make this happen.
We provide testing for food intolerance, mineral & heavy metal status, hormone testing for sex hormones, thyroid, adrenal & liver health, zinc test & can refer for blood testing

If you have ever thought that there has to be something out there that can help you, more than just muddle through, day to day. Then you MUST see Serina. She has turned my life around in the last 6 months. I swear, you too, will notice the benefits - Lorraine
Thank you for all your help this year. It has been a huge transformation for me. I had been to many doctors and specialists for headaches and low energy/iron levels. Thanks to you changing something as simple as food and having a few vitamins and minerals it has helped immensely. Of course anyone that asks me what I've done I tell them it's thanks to you. Raewyn
Best pregnancy ever after seeing Serina - Jay
After years of suffering with sinus allergies and trying every available drug through conventional medicine with no success I finally found Serina. One week on her herbal potion and the congestion was almost completely gone......a hair test and a few dietary and lifestyle changes later and I feel fantastic! Love your work Serina x - Kerry
Awesome service and knowledge, I also love my face cream thank you :).' – Skye
I am grateful to have had Serina as my naturopath. During this time Serina took the time to listen to me and my health requirements and guide me through gentle, sustainable changes that positively impacted my health. Serina explained why she recommended certain dietary changes and how they would benefit me. Over this time we built a great relationship based on trust and I thoroughly recommend her as a great naturopath. - Anna
Thank you so so so sooooo much Serina!!!! I loved our consultation, you were very informative and helpful and the potions and lotions you made up are magic!!! Ayla's eczema has completely died down and she is no longer all irritable, grumpy and ridiculously itchy. She sleeps more soundly and is pretty much back to herself. I am so stoked and truly can't thank you enough!!! The face cream you make is amazing too! Keep doing what you are doing cause it's awesome!!!' - Sarah
I took my extremely skinny and fussy 11 year old boy to see Serina at the clinic last week where he got the hair follicle testing done. The report was amazing and Serina explained what the results meant for my son. She provided recipes and food alternatives to get his wee body doing what it should be doing, which I must admit I was quite cynical about. I took the advice on board and made some changes at home. The results so far have made my jaw hit the floor, my fusspot eater is now chowing down on these suggestions (even though there are ingredients included that he would usually turn his nose up at) and has taken a keen interest in what he is choosing to put into his body. Thank you thank you thank you! - Sarah-Jayne
So I've had no sugar or gluten for almost 2 weeks now, I've cut back to two coffees a day. I've been taking 10mls of your herbal concoction and the other supplements and I've been going to the gym everyday, and I'm feeling fricken amazing!!!! I haven't had this much energy in so long!!!! And I've lost 2kgs!(12 to go). Thank you so much for all your love and support really appreciate it! Oh and I've been using your skin care products! Totally in love with it! - Louise
After my 13 year old daughter had chronic headaches for the last 6 months and we felt we were getting no where, we got her hair tested and with a change in her diet and some lovely recipes within 2 days she has been headache free. It's now been a month and most importantly we have a happy teenager back. Thank you so much - Bridget
I went to see Serina after getting headaches and using medication on a daily basis, after two days of taking her herbal blend she has made me and following her recommendations I have had no headaches for a week, I am totally stoked. Thanks Serina xxxxx – Kelly
Due to fertility issues I decided to visit Serina at Natural Family Health. I've been totally blown away by the knowledge, care & attention provided by Serina. She basically reviewed everything about my life - diet and exercise as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. I googled every little herb that she included in my prescribed potion and they all seemed so appropriate for me. Serina also took the time to seek extra advice on my behalf from a colleague specialising in fertility. She has helped me to feel so positive now as I continue on my fertility journey. My body is being nurtured and assisted in a natural way. The communication is comfortable and easy and it feels so good knowing I have someone as awesome as Serina looking out for me! - Lisa
I have dealt with mild to severe adult acne for the last four years, and have tried numerous treatments which have only ever reduced the problem short term. Since meeting Serina and taking her AMAZING herbs, I have noticed the biggest improvement! My skin is currently clear for the first time in YEARS and the only thing I can put it down to is the magical herbal concoction. Thank you Serina!! - Erin
