Rike is a registered Naturopath and Nutritionist who was born in Germany where she worked as a medical assistant for a holistic GP before coming to Australia. She completed her Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy with awards in Nutrition and Clinical Application in 2007. Since then Rike has been working in private clinic focusing especially on digestive disorders and children’s health. Rike has attended many practitioner seminars focusing on gut and brain health over the last 10 years, including:
- Certified GAPS (Gut And Psychology Syndrome) practitioner 2012
- MAPS (Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs) training 2015
- MINDD (Metabolic, Immunologic, Neurological, Digestive, Developmental conditions that often affects the mind) training 2009, 2011, 2015
Rike has also obtained qualifications in QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis) Kinesiology, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Australian Bush Flower Essences.
She enjoys combining medical pathology (test results) with traditional Naturopathic diagnostic tools like Iridology, Nail & Tongue analysis to get the best outcome for her clients.
Rike’s passion for natural health and nutrition started in her childhood when she experienced severe food allergies & intolerances. This lead her mother to try out many different natural therapies and Rike became more aware of good nutrition and the connection to our health.
She loves sharing her experience and knowledge with her clients, friends and family and spends much of her time cooking, baking, fermenting and experimenting with food. Rike realises that it is important to enjoy food, even when following a strict diet regime so she has many helpful suggestions when it comes to creating a nutritious & tasty meal.
As a mother she is also very passionate about helping moms and moms-to-be to with their nutritional needs and common pregnancy complaints.
Preconception and pregnancy are such important times to take good care of our health as it will directly affect the babies health. Over the last decade we have learnt so much about gene health and how our environment and nutrition influences our genes directly. This empowers us to make the right decisions in order to create a healthy baby. Let me help you along the way.
