Naturopathic Herbalist

What is wellness?

Wellness is a state of physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing beyond the manifestation of obvious disease symptoms. Wellness is concerned with achieving health for each individual.

Meet Cath Lilburn

Naturopathic Herbalist

I have been in practice for over 20 years helping people’s physical and emotional wellbeing and I am passionate about educating people about their health. I work as a Herbalist but am grounded in a complementary, best of both worlds approach to health care which means I do what is best for each person I see and work in conjunction with medical doctors.

 

I originally studied a Bachelor Economics/Bachelor Arts (honours) at the ANU in Canberra before jumping headlong into the natural healthcare field. I finished an apprenticeship at a Canberra clinic while studying a Diploma of Herbal medicine with Dorothy Hall. In 1998 I moved with my husband to Newcastle and worked at a multidisciplinary practice while he completed his Medical degree. While living in Newcastle I studied with the very experienced Herbalist, Nancy Evelyn.

 

In 2003 I moved to Wollongong and worked at All Natural Therapies in Corrimal before starting a family and working from home. I love the flexibility of a home practice and offer patients a calm, tranquil clinic environment when they come to see me for their health care needs.

 

I am committed to ongoing education and regularly attend conferences and seminars. I receive monthly clinical mentoring with one of Australia’s most respected Nutritionist/Naturopaths, Rachel Arthur. In 2018 I completed a course on Integrative support for people with cancer taught by Integrative Naturopathic Oncologist Lise Alschuler.

 

In 2018 I commenced a Bachelor of Medicine Management (with professional honours in Complementary Medicine) through the Dept of Pharmacy at University of Tasmania and am enjoying the challenge and stimulation of the study.

Catherine is a very caring and compassionate practitioner. She listens carefully to what I have to say and provides me with the necessary tonics and supplements to help me. She is very professional and interprets blood test results to tweak what she prescribes me.
