About Me

HELLO!

I'm Lydia Dorotich

Registered Naturopath, Medical Herbalist &

Health Coach


I was a very unhealthy person growing up. I suffered from severe colic as a baby, allergies, constant ear infections and relentless allergic rhinitis. To make matters worse I was a bit of a party animal in my teens and early 20’s. By my mid 20’s I was in a bad state and my body had had enough. I felt awful!

I visited a Naturopath around this time who prescribed me herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle changes and slowly but surely I began to feel amazing. I was hooked. I was so inspired that I decided to become a Naturopath myself. This was a big career change given that I worked in Finance in the Corporate world.

I have two amazing and healthy teenagers for which I feel so incredibly grateful. Probably more so because I have experienced recurrent miscarriage and a heartbreaking still birth. While Doctors told me to give up trying to have a baby, I knew I had powerful tools in my Natural Therapies tool belt that made my chances of a healthy baby possible. I am grateful that my stubbornness, passion and determination to find a way paid off.

 

 

Are you looking to make a real change in your health? Are you ready to create a life of energy and vitality? Start your journey into better health with my help...  

Being a Naturopath is a lot like being a detective. We gather as many clues as we can by getting a good understanding of a persons diet, lifestyle, health history and other issues then combine this with testing to back up what we find. Once we can see what is going on, we have many ways to get a person’s health back on track.

 

My particular interest is in Women’s health. Women are really good at looking after others but terrible at looking after themselves. Stress, fatigue, hormonal imbalances and gut issues are what I see commonly in women. Our bodies are always giving us clues about what is going on which are prompts for us to make changes. Things like PMS, skin problems, fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, brain fog are all examples of signs that things need to change.

 

Making changes to your diet and lifestyle is not easy. That is why working with a qualified practitioner can speed up the process, keep you motivated to stay on track and to guide you to the best way to achieve this.

I have an empathetic and realistic approach to life and health. 

 

You don’t need to put up with poor health any longer!

 


My Bio and Why I Can Help You


  • Results Orientated Approach

    By treating the cause & not just symptoms, my goal is to always find a long term sustainable solution for my clients so that they no longer have to band aid symptoms. I also tailor your treatment to your unique body type and situation so that it is achievable for you. There is no cookie cutter approach - one size does not fit all. 

  • Up to date research applicable to your situation

    With so much information available to us, many people become confused & over whelmed when looking for solutions.  It is my job to keep up to date with the fast pace of new information that is always changing (luck for you I am a research nerd!). By working with me I am able to apply my up to date knowledge, skills and experience to get you to your goals.

  • Working with a registered Naturopath

    In New Zealand anyone can call themselves a Naturopath even if they are not trained. Being registered with the NZAMH (Naturopaths & Medical Herbalists of NZ) we are required to have a high level of training, standard of care and ongoing professional development.
