Hi, I'm Diana Hardwick-Smith and I am the owner and founder of Waimarino Natural Health.
I'm a qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Registered Nurse.
My career as a Health Practitioner began in Nursing and Midwifery. I then went on to do a Naturopathic and Medical Herbalist Diploma, graduating from both in 1993. I qualified in Natural Fertility and Preconception Care in 2001.
I ran my own Naturopath Practice at home in Devonport and then Glendowie, while I brought up my 2 children. During this time I also spent 18 months working with Natural Hormone Therapy (NHT) at different Medical Centres around Auckland and 12 years as an Intravenous Vitamin C Nurse in Auckland.
As a Nurse and Naturopath, I also offered a Functional Medicine blood draw service for tests done overseas.
My online store began in 2008. It runs 24/7, and is stocked with products that I personally endorse. Most of the products are organic and some are gluten free and dairy free.
Currently I am focusing on providing excellent service from my online store, I have gone back to nursing and have reopened my Naturopathic clinic in Mangawhai. I also offer online consultations.
