I help people to find their energy, balance hormones, cope better with stress, support digestive health & detoxification using a holistic approach to your wellbeing, to allow you to find and maintain better health, energy, laughter, and joy once more.
Hi, I'm Serina Gardner, I am a Bachelor qualified Naturopath, & Medical Herbalist who specialises in holistic wellbeing (looking at the whole you) with my special interest being in Endocrine, Nervous System, Reproductive & Digestive Health.
At the Natural Family Health Clinic, we offer natural health consultations looking at every aspect of health; seeking to find and address the underlying cause of a health problem rather than just treating the symptoms. Our goal is to listen to and facilitate the body’s own natural healing power using nutrition, mineral therapy, medical herbs & lifestyle practices. Consultations involve an in-depth case take of your current health and medical history, whilst assessing all the body systems, utlising various diagnostic techniques when appropriate, and assessing any health concerns you may have.
Your first appointment will be approximately 45 minutes, when you book an appointment I will email you our pre-visit form, the form is comprehensive and will take about 20-30 minutes to complete, but will mean we can focus on what is important to you at the consultation and get you the fastest results for better health.
At the time of your first appointment, I will give you some initial guidelines & then at your first follow up appointment I will provide an individual written treatment plan to start your journey towards optimal health working with you to achieve your health goals.
Your on-going treatment plan may include - nutrition, nutritional supplements, mineral/vitamin therapy, medicinal herbs, bach flowers, exercise, stress management and/or lifestyle changes to improve your health, and referrals to applicable health modalities.
We may use hair testing or blood tests to check for food sensitivities, mineral deficiencies or heavy metals; blood tests; or urine tests to review hormones and digestive health. The results of any testing carried out enables us to develop a treatment plan that will ensure you gain the best results.
Follow up appointments
Follow up appointments provide continued support to help you make the changes needed to obtain optimal health, to keep you motivated, support you to achieve your goals, assess your progress, discuss any changes you may be experiencing, and to amend the plan as your health improves.
As a Naturopath and Medical Herbalist, we are very excited to help you and your family enjoy a healthier happier life and look forward to working with you to make this happen.

If you have ever thought that there has to be something out there that can help you, more than just muddle through, day to day. Then you MUST see Serina. She has turned my life around in the last 6 months. I swear, you too, will notice the benefits - Lorraine
Thank you for all your help this year. It has been a huge transformation for me. I had been to many doctors and specialists for headaches and low energy/iron levels. Thanks to you changing something as simple as food and having a few vitamins and minerals it has helped immensely. Of course anyone that asks me what I've done I tell them it's thanks to you. Raewyn
Best pregnancy ever after seeing Serina - Jay.
After years of suffering with sinus allergies and trying every available drug through conventional medicine with no success I finally found Serina. One week on her herbal potion and the congestion was almost completely gone......a hair test and a few dietary and lifestyle changes later and I feel fantastic! Love your work Serina x - Kerry
Awesome service and knowledge, I also love my face cream thank you :).' – Skye
I am grateful to have had Serina as my naturopath. During this time Serina took the time to listen to me and my health requirements and guide me through gentle, sustainable changes that positively impacted my health. Serina explained why she recommended certain dietary changes and how they would benefit me. Over this time we built a great relationship based on trust and I thoroughly recommend her as a great naturopath. - Anna
Thank you so so so sooooo much Serina!!!! I loved our consultation, you were very informative and helpful and the potions and lotions you made up are magic!!! Ayla's eczema has completely died down and she is no longer all irritable, grumpy and ridiculously itchy. She sleeps more soundly and is pretty much back to herself. I am so stoked and truly can't thank you enough!!! The face cream you make is amazing too! Keep doing what you are doing cause it's awesome!!!' - Sarah
I took my extremely skinny and fussy 11 year old boy to see Serina at the clinic last week where he got the hair follicle testing done. The report was amazing and Serina explained what the results meant for my son. She provided recipes and food alternatives to get his wee body doing what it should be doing, which I must admit I was quite cynical about. I took the advice on board and made some changes at home. The results so far have made my jaw hit the floor, my fusspot eater is now chowing down on these suggestions (even though there are ingredients included that he would usually turn his nose up at) and has taken a keen interest in what he is choosing to put into his body. Thank you thank you thank you! - Sarah-Jayne.
So I've had no sugar or gluten for almost 2 weeks now, I've cut back to two coffees a day. I've been taking 10mls of your herbal concoction and the other supplements and I've been going to the gym everyday, and I'm feeling fricken amazing!!!! I haven't had this much energy in so long!!!! And I've lost 2kgs!(12 to go). Thank you so much for all your love and support really appreciate it! Oh and I've been using your skin care products! Totally in love with it! - Louise
After my 13 year old daughter had chronic headaches for the last 6 months and we felt we were getting no where, we got her hair tested and with a change in her diet and some lovely recipes within 2 days she has been headache free. It's now been a month and most importantly we have a happy teenager back. Thank you so much - Bridget
I went to see Serina after getting headaches and using medication on a daily basis, after two days of taking her herbal blend she has made me and following her recommendations I have had no headaches for a week, I am totally stoked. Thanks Serina xxxxx – Kelly
Due to fertility issues I decided to visit Serina at Natural Family Health. I've been totally blown away by the knowledge, care & attention provided by Serina. She basically reviewed everything about my life - diet and exercise as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. I googled every little herb that she included in my prescribed potion and they all seemed so appropriate for me. Serina also took the time to seek extra advice on my behalf from a colleague specialising in fertility. She has helped me to feel so positive now as I continue on my fertility journey. My body is being nurtured and assisted in a natural way. The communication is comfortable and easy and it feels so good knowing I have someone as awesome as Serina looking out for me! - Lisa
I have dealt with mild to severe adult acne for the last four years, and have tried numerous treatments which have only ever reduced the problem short term. Since meeting Serina and taking her AMAZING herbs, I have noticed the biggest improvement! My skin is currently clear for the first time in YEARS and the only thing I can put it down to is the magical herbal concoction. Thank you Serina!! - Erin
