Hi, I’m Anne-Marie, aka The Barefoot Naturopath.
I’m a degree qualified naturopath, author in process, mum, foodie, adventure seeker, thalassophile and tree hugger with the travel bug. And…yes, I love to be barefoot!
The reason I am here is to help people regain their health so they can take on any adventure they choose and enjoy the life they deserve.
I enjoy the health and vitality to be able to do whatever I choose because I have had support and guidance along the way. You see, I wasn’t always well.
After the birth of my second child, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune thyroid condition, which took me on a roller coaster of self-reflection and healing that would draw not only on my clinical experience and skill, but also would test my faith in the power of natural medicine. I triumphed over weight gain, fatigue, depression and hair loss to run three half marathons and a full marathon in the following years, and have not required medication for over 10 years. If it wasn’t for my family, doctors, naturopathic mentors, nutritionist, acupuncturists, kineseologists and others, I would still be struggling along on my own.
I’m here to help people feel like they have control of their health again, feel good about themselves, have the energy to “DO” life, and glow with vitality. I’ve been doing this for about 18 years now, so I have a few things figured out!
My mission is to make health, realistic, attainable and sustainable with a little bit of fun and adventure mixed in.
