Welcome to Holistic Health & Herbs, my name is Anne Reid and I am the founder of this natural health clinic.
I am extremely passionate about food as medicine, medicinal herbs and natural medicine in general. Having seen my own family struggle with health issues over the years that conventional medicine could not resolve led me to study what has become my lifelong obsession.
My mission is to assist, motivate and educate people to be the best version of themselves possible. To enable them to take control of their own health and live long and happy lives.
I am a qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist and Western Herbal Medicine practitioner. I am a registered member of Naturopath & Herbalist Association Australia (NHAA), Complementary Medicine Association (CMA) and Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS).
Having lived a large part of my life farming in rural and remote areas of Far North Qld, I know the difficulties distance and time can have on healthcare in rural communities. For this reason, I also offer online consultations to enable everyone the opportunity to access natural health care.
I have recently moved to the gorgeous Northern Rivers area with my husband and dogs, just outside Lismore on a small cattle property.
If you are unable to see me in the clinic you will not miss out on anything as my online appointments are the same as in-clinic consultations, we will just see each other through a screen.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
My other obsessions are my dogs Harry and Ivy (and my family of course!)

Typically between 60-90mins
During our initial consultation I will conduct a full case history, go over any presenting symptoms and conduct routine testing as necessary. These tests include nail and tongue analysis, zinc status test, BP and pulse testing. Further functional pathology testing may also be required. A personalised treatment plan will then be implemented which may include dietary, herbal, flower essence, nutritional and lifestyle components.

During our initial nutritional consultation a full case history will be taken along with an analysis of dietary goals and deficiencies. Functional pathology testing may be ordered if deemed necessary. An individualised nutritional diet and meal plan (including recipes as needed) will be then be formulated to meet clients' personalised dietary needs, tastes and goals.

Typically between 30-45 mins
Our follow-up consultation may be conducted anywhere between 1-4 weeks after initial consult depending on clients needs and presenting symptoms. This is where we review and monitor any changes or new symptoms and discuss any test results. We will then tweak the treatment or dietary plan (depending on type of followup consult) and make adjustments as necessary.

Your eyes are a unique window into health. Iridology is a tool that allows the practitioner to identify any underlying or genetic suseptibilities about a patients’ health. This is done by careful examination of the iris and then matched against an iris chart that correlates organs to areas in the iris. It can help identify systems and organs in your body that may be inflamed, or over- or underactive and give an indication of any weaknesses. It cannot, however, diagnose specific diseases.
We all eat to live but it is what we eat that is vitaly important. All food has different nutrients so if we are not eating a wide variety of nutrient dense fresh fruits and vegetables and eating too many processed or refined foods we may be missing out on many essential vitamins and minerals. Deficiences of these nutrients can have profound affects on our body’s and can contribute to many illnesses including hormone imbalances, muscle pain and headaches.
Herbs have been used traditionally for thousands of years to treat and heal ailments and disease. A large section of the world still use herbal medicine as their primary source of healthcare as they are effective, affordable, closely correspond to the patient’s ideology, allays concerns about the adverse effects of chemical (synthetic) medicines and can be personalized to the individual and their healthcare needs.
