Our Principal naturopath Elena Turner is a degree qualified registered Naturopath and Medical Herbalist. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Science and a post graduate diploma in Teaching (secondary school mathematics and statistics). Elena takes a holistic approach to your health concerns.

As well as supporting healthy ageing and longevity, Elena sees patients with a variety of health issues and can provide support and treatment for many conditions.
What to expect in the first appointment:
The first appointment is for gathering information about you – your health concerns, health history, nutrient intake, physical activity, stress and sleep, and how your body is working on a day-to-day basis. Physical examinations are done when indicated and lab or functional tests may be recommended. We will set achievable goals together and Elena will develop a personalised wellness plan using evidence-based nutrition, herbal medicine, and lifestyle techniques.
At follow up sessions we will monitor your progress and ensure your wellness plan and goals are achieved. Elena is dedicated to supporting you to feel empowered and in control of your health and wellbeing, addressing the root causes of health challenges.
Elena strongly believes that integrative care is the best approach to health – involving conventional medicine for acute management when needed, and natural medicine for prevention and long term treatment of chronic conditions.
Elena is a degree qualified and registered naturopath and medical herbalist, and strongly recommends you continue to see your General Practitioner or other health care providers in conjunction with your visits with her.
Several medical insurance providers recognise that some of their members wish to seek complementary medicines and therapies and will reimburse claims for consultations with a registered naturopath. For example, Southern Cross Medical Care Society “Body Care” module and Accuro Health insurance “Natural Health+” provide variable covers. Please check their plan and/or other agencies’ plans if you wish to make a claim for your consultations.
Elena was born in the Far Eastern reaches of Russia spending summers with her Grandmother, a prominent, well sought after and respected natural healer recognised across the expanses of Russia. Elena was heavily influenced by her work as a child. Now many decades later living in New Zealand those experiences with her Grandmother ignited the seemingly dormant desire to work in the field of naturopathic medicine, leading to a change in career from secondary school mathematics teaching. Leaving teaching she completed a bachelor’s degree in naturopathic and herbal medicine, expanding on her knowledge of her Grandmother’s traditional healing therapies.
With a strong background in science Elena has a particular interest in preventive and regenerative medicine. Naturopathy is based on holistic principles and provides a unique approach that can support people with healthy ageing and longevity. Elena extended her studies in Anti-Aging Medicine in the United States in 2018. She is certified in Appearance and Aesthetic Medicine with the American Association of Anti-Aging Medicine (a4m) and has a special interest helping people in this area.
Elena is currently completing certification in Preventative, Integrative and Anti-Ageing Medicine with the Australasian Certification Association in Anti-Ageing Medicine (ACAAM).
