About the Practitioner
Gabrielle Richards is a renowned authority in the field of Naturopathy, with certifications and accolades in Naturopathy, Integral healing, body work, counseling, Sociology, Anthropology, and Osho meditation-with over forty years of experience in the field of Naturopathy and alternative medicine. After spending the first half of her life battling chronic migraines, ear infections, digestive issues, and countless other ailments, she understands what it’s like to live in pain, and to feel hopeless in one’s pursuit of optimal health and wellbeing. She was repeatedly let down by traditional medicine, treatments, pills and promised cures, and eventually decided to take matters into her own hands.
A path to healing
During nearly fifty years of living in pain, Gabrielle turned her sights to the wisdom of nature, and in doing so, discovered the healing and guidance of world renowned Natural Health pioneer, Shyam Singah. Little by little, he helped her heal from the inside out, and Gabrielle began to experience the happiness and bliss that comes from living a pain free life. Along the way, she embodied countless tools, methodologies, and profound ancient wisdom in radical teachings of Osho, Eckhart Tolle, and many more.
She’s now made it her life’s mission to help others on their path back to wholeness, and stands as an inspiring reminder that healthy bliss is a birthright, not a luxury.

Who is Naturopathy for?
Naturopathy is a perfect fit for anyone who wants feel good, to heal, to be liberated from pain, discomfort, and illness – reaching for a life truly worth living. While it’s range is vast, the most commonly treated symptoms are as follows:
- digestive problems,
- over weight and under weight
- muscular aches and pains such as backache, neck and shoulder tension,
- eating disorders
- chronic stress and pain
- skin problems
- premature aging
- emotional distress
- Chronic Inflammation
- Prone to Infection
This uniquely personal approach takes the time to address the major factors underlying chronic pain, lack of energy, digestive and immune deficiency, degenerative disease, inflammation etc.
PHYSICAL: genetics and biochemical individuality, childhood, deficiency of nutrients, toxicity, digestive insufficiency, injury
EMOTIONAL: suppressed fear, terror, anger, guilt, resentment – including traumas and upsets; these block healing, may cause degenerative disease and restrict the growth and freedom of the human spirit
MENTAL: values, judgements, opinions, misinformation and lack of education cause life problems and interfere with a healthy fulfilling lifestyle.
SPIRITUAL: Health problems indicate that spiritual healing/balancing work is needed, to fully ground the individual within Mother Earth, while elevating well-being on all levels
Love is the Natural Healer
LOVE is nature’s intrinsic and mysterious quality and LOVE is nature’s ‘product’. Love has the quality of unconditional acceptance, respect, compassion and empathy: love gives and receives, love understands and holds, love heals all wounds. It is in fact, the very stuff we are made of. Love and the caring qualities do not get much mention in mainstream medicine. Be that as it may, love is at work whenever deep healing occurs. Indeed, without the presence of love it is doubtful if anyone could survive on the planet.
The Role of Fear
Fear cuts us off from Feeling and Being in Love, being connected and in our body. That is why any truly effective healing work has to address the issue of fear and work with it – FEARLESSLY! Freedom from fears empowers like nothing else on earth.
It is my privilege and delight to accompany my clients on the journey from fear and pain to a state of transformed health, and life itself.
