My name is Belinda and I'm a Naturopath, Nutritionist and founder of Ritual Herb Bar and Naturopathic Clinic in Brisbane.
After experiencing my own skin issues in my later teens and early 20's, I was so frustrated with the process of seeing specialist after specialist and trying every cream and medication under the sun. Some would mask symptoms temporarily but ultimately, it would always come back and often worse than before.
I remember the stress of trying to work out what was causing it and not being able to pinpoint what triggered flare ups, and being embarrassed and self-conscious about my skin. That experience has made me so passionate about helping children improve their skin health as early in life as possible, so they don't have to go through this as they enter their early school years. I know how stressful that can be, not just for the child, but for the whole family too.
I spent around 10 years trying to find someone who could help me, when I finally saw a naturopath. Within a few weeks, my skin had improved immeasurably, and I knew that I wanted to be able to do this for others.
My hope is that Ritual Herb Bar will be a supportive space where you can get personalised advice and treatment from a qualified practitioner, and finally get the results you're after.
I believe that there isn't just one nutrition philosophy, treatment or way of eating that suits everyone and the way we approach healing should be 100% personalised.
It's not about eating perfectly or following strict treatment plans, but finding a way of eating and an individualised prescription of nutrients and herbs that work for you. When you do this, the results can be nothing short of amazing x
