Riette Smulders

I have been interested in nature and healing as far back as I can remember. As a 5yr old, I spent many hours in our garden bandaging and treating whatever plants or animals I felt needed help. When I got to high school, I got extremely ill and we went from specialist to specialist trying to find the cause. After many months, it was the homeopath who diagnosed me as having glandular fever and set me on the road to recovery. These experiences paved the way for me to embark on six years of study getting my master’s degree in Homeopathy in 2001.

I ran a very successful practice from home for ten years and am thrilled to have joined the professional team at the Vertebrate Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic.

I have come to realise over the years of practising, that there is a real need for people to connect with their health care practitioner. To have someone who takes time to really listen and is prepared to walk with them on the road back to health.

Homeopathy is extremely versatile and very safe to use even on the smallest new-borns and most frail. In many cases, it can be used in conjunction with other medication and has the ability to not only bring about relief of physical symptoms but also improve the patient on mental and emotional levels.      

I have a special interest in children with learning difficulties and am currently busy with part-time studies doing the Waldorf Teacher Training Course which I believe will support the experience that already has in this field.

I share my home with my amazing partner as well as four beautiful children (two of which are mine).
