Naturopath Annaliese Jones spoke to Karina Abadia about the impact minor changes can make to people's lives. Holistic approach: Naturopath Annaliese Jones uses herbal medicine in conjunction with nutritional advice to offer support on things such as weight loss, anxiety and infertility. Photo: JASON OXENHAM DAILY GRIND Go to centralleader.co.nz to watch a video of Mrs Jones describing what she does. Becoming a naturopath did not feel like a choice for Anna- liese Jones. It was something she was drawn to naturally -- although it took her a while to get there. Rather than follow in her mother's footsteps and become a naturopath to begin with she wanted to explore other op- tions. She studied nutrition for a year and then baked gluten- free products for health stores before enrolling at Ellerslie's South Pacific College of Natu- ral Medicine. She studied a bachelor of health science (complemen- tary medicine), an advanced diploma in naturopathy and an advanced diploma in herbal medicine. When she gradua- ted in 2004 she worked for a supplement company giving mini-consultations in health stores and pharmacies all over the country. A few years later she star- ted her own practice, renting a room in clinics and seeing clients at her house. She now works exclusively from her Mt Eden home. Most of the 32-year-old's clients find her through word- of-mouth and with a 1-year- old son her three-day practice keeps her as busy as she needs to be. She typically sees bet- ween five to eight clients per day with initial consultations lasting an hour and follow-up sessions 45 minutes. The idea is to treat the per- son holistically and dietary adjustments are often the foundation for treatment, she says. At the initial consultation she will administer a live blood analysis. She analyses a drop of blood under the micro- scope, enabling her to pinpoint such things as nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, allergies and dehydration. People will usually leave with a dietary plan, a type of vitamin and mineral therapy and perhaps some herbal medicine made up of a mixture of one to seven herbs. Three weeks later she does a second blood analysis to track progress. Then she may see the person once more, al- though some patients require further treatment. The nice thing is it isn't just one-size-fits-all. People are often amazed how effective herbal medicine can be. Each formula is specific to individ- ual requirements.'' Many clients come to her for help with losing weight as well as hormonal issues related to polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, infertility and menopause. Mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression are other com- mon ailments. She loves working with children and is a regular con- tributor to The Natural Parent Magazine. Treating children is so re- warding because they tend to respond really quickly and the results can be huge.'' Although there is more awareness of naturopathy these days, Ms Jones still comes across people who haven't heard of the pro- fession. But that is slowly changing, she says. The most rewarding part of her job is seeing people who take responsibility for their wellbeing and give up their unhealthy habits. People are often amazed by the fact that small changes can have really profound ef- fects on their health.''
