Julia has always been fascinated by the power of natural medicine to heal a person. Growing up in Russia, she enjoyed collecting and drying wild herbs during the short Northern summer to use them throughout the year to ward off colds and flu, deal with tummy pains, etc.
A desire to become a naturopath and to share the art of natural healing with others came about after life has thrown a series of health challenges to Julia. A number of miscarriages, one at a quite advanced stage, made Julia look more seriously at herbal medicine, because conventional medical doctors could not see any problems with her fertility. She dedicated six months to naturopathic and herbal treatment for her unexplained infertility and, nine months later, she welcomed a baby boy into her family. Julia also managed to overcome a frightening health issue that her second son came with into this world. Inspired by the successful outcome, Julia decided to follow her call to be a natural healer and help as many people as she can.
Julia has been studying esoteric healing alongside her naturopathic journey. This evolved naturally through her search for an effective solution to various health problems and has become an integral part of Juliaβs approach to help people overcome their health challenges.
Julia is a qualified naturopath (Adv.Dip of Nat., Melbourne), massage therapist (Cert IV in Massage Therapies, Melbourne), Esoteric healing practitioner (Judy Jackaβs Esoteric Healing course), aromatherapist (Cert. in Aromatherapy, Moscow), B.A. (Moscow).
