Leilani Kvia – Naturopath
Leilani began study in 1994 and graduated with distinctions in Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Nutrition and Acupuncture from the Australian Institute of Holistic Medicine in 2000. She was drawn to the study having grown up in a radically organic sustainable home. During her time as a student Leilani felt a strong sense of having found her lifes purpose and worked tirelessly and passionately to understand the mechanism by which the body functions and heals.
One primary recognition that stood out in her time as a student is that prevention is better than cure and a healthy body is a fabulous place to reside. Here is a practitoner that walks her talk all the way.
Leilani moved to Byron Bay in 2000 and was blessed enough to land a postion in one of the shires most loved holistic health centres in the heart of Byron Bay where she managed the herbal dispensary for 6 years. Since this time Leilani has practiced Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine, studied and taught Iyengar Yoga, facilitated nutrition and meditation workshops, inspired young and old, creative and corporate, eased and dis-eased both in Australia and in Scandinavia.
Finding a path to health that works for the client is paramount. There is no one way and a postive outcome requires knowledge, compassion, empathy, and an open mind. Leilani draws on these skills to deliver lasting results creating vitality and balance while embracing the modern world. «True healing is a matter of mind, body and spirit, they can not be isolated. The best food money can buy may not assimilate if the mind is uneasy»
Leilani is grateful to now be part of the team at Herbal Wisdom in beautiful Bangalow.
