Allison Riehs

Naturopath

My Vision

Hello there, and thanks for dropping by. As a mother, I have personally experienced the challenges of parenthood, and raising children with complex health issues. I also understand the constraints and obstacles families often face when exploring natural health therapies, so I aim to provide professional, flexible and friendly support to guide you on this journey. I am passionate about supporting the health of children, women and their families with the benefits of real food and conscious choices, as well as naturopathic care and herbal medicine. I am also very passionate about supporting children with additional needs. My own family lives with a range of health challenges from cerebral palsy and deafness to epilepsy and autism. A holistic approach to health has made a world of difference for myself and my family, and I love helping others by sharing my knowledge so you too can take control of the health and wellbeing of your loved ones. -Allison Riehs

My Story

I started studying Naturopathy to improve my health and the health of my children. I suffered numerous bouts of tonsillitis and ear infections as a child and lived with chronic sinusitis well into adulthood. Later in life I discovered various foods, especially dairy, did not agree with me and shortly after eliminating these foods, all my sinus issues cleared up. I no longer needed to live on antihistamines and decongestants, and this was really a pivotal moment that sparked my interest in natural health. I also had fertility issues and challenges with conceiving, and it was natural treatments that successfully helped me conceive my children. I also went on to have a healthy pregnancy after the neonatal death of our beautiful son, and again after a miscarriage. All of my babies were born prematurely, between 25 weeks and 35 weeks gestation. My youngest was born with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) at 28 weeks gestation which has caused life-long challenges including Cerebral Palsy, Refractory Epilepsy and Deafness, for which she has cochlear implants. She is non verbal, has feeding issues, requires nasal gastric tubes, experiences GORD and reflux, and has battled failure to thrive. Across all of my children I have also dealt with PANDAS (paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections), Pyrroles (Kryptopyrrole/Mauve factor), ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Through all of this, I continued to fight what sometimes felt like a losing battle with my own health. I have survived breast cancer, adrenal fatigue, major histamine issues, and gut health issues, and know all too well the negative effects stress can have on our bodies and our health. In addition to my professional qualifications as a Naturopath, I have continued to invest my time in researching herbal medicine and natural health approaches which I have personally embraced with positive results for myself, my family and my clients. Now enjoying better health and more energy, I love spending my spare time on outdoor adventures like skiing, hiking and swimming in lakes or the ocean. I treasure spending time with my family and working on strength and fitness through play.
