Well­park Col­lege fo­rum fo­cuses on food al­ler­gies

Auckland City Harbour News - - Focus On Education -

Well­park Col­lege of Nat­u­ral Ther­a­pies is unique in the depth and qual­ity of the cour­ses of­fered, en­hanced in no small part by the ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of the teach­ing staff that goes way be­yond the norm.

It is also renowned for its ded­i­ca­tion to driv­ing the stan­dards of nat­u­ral ther­a­pies for­ward.

It is es­tab­lish­ing the first Nat­u­ral Ther­a­pies Re­search Unit world­wide to help move the com­pli­men­tary/al­ter­na­tive approach down the path of in­te­gra­tion with more mod­ern forms of medicine.

For the first time, it is hold­ing a fo­rum on in­te­gra­tive medicine, fo­cus­ing on food al­ler­gies. The fo­rum will show how the dis­ci­plines of natur­opa­thy, herbal medicine, aro­mather­apy, ayurveda and yoga ther­apy and a lo­cal doc­tor approach this par­tic­u­lar dis­or­der.

So if you know any­one who suf­fers from food al­ler­gies, bring them along.

Well­park has de­vel- oped New Zealand’s first de­gree in Nat­u­ral Ther­a­pies and is just wait­ing for the fi­nal seal of ap­proval from NZQA.

Stu­dents are nur­tured from the phys­i­cal to the men­tal to the emo­tional, bring­ing about greater lev­els of con­scious­ness and aware­ness that not only pos­i­tively af­fect their own lives but ul­ti­mately those of the clients that they will help.

Well­park’s en­thu­si­asm in pro­vid­ing the most ful­fill­ing and holis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for its stu­dents sees it host many in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised speak­ers as well as or­gan­is­ing tours to In­dia for its Ayurveda and Yoga Ther­apy stu­dents.

Well­park Col­lege stu­dents go on to achieve ful­fill­ing ca­reers in private prac­tise, within cor­po­rate or­gan­i­sa­tions or even in­ter­na­tion­ally in Europe, US and Asia.

Stu­dent Max­ine Weiner sums up the Well­park ex­pe­ri­ence:

“Com­ing to study yoga at Well­park is one of the best de­ci­sions I’ve made. I had a gen­eral in­ter­est in holis­tic health but I knew I wanted to study nat­u­ral health when I be­came ill a few years ago with chronic fa­tigue and there was noth­ing my doc­tor could do to help.

“There were a num­ber of places I could study in Lon­don but I knew it was im­por­tant for me to make sig­nif­i­cant lifestyle changes and get away from the rat race. I was for­tu­nate to be able to search for cour­ses any­where in the world. I chose Well­park Col­lege be­cause it of­fered the op­por­tu­nity to study with stu­dents of other modal­i­ties and also be­cause of its quiet and peace­ful lo­ca­tion.

“Yoga has taught me about my­self and how to live a health­ier and hap­pier life and this has en­abled me to con­tinue my re­cov­ery from a de­bil­i­tat­ing con­di­tion.

My teach­ers have taught me much more than the­ory and asana, they’ve taught me how to put yoga into prac­tice and make it a part of my daily life. I came here to learn a skill I hoped would al­low me to change my ca­reer but I have gained so much more than that.

Well­park in­vites you to come along on June 7 to en­joy a taste of the Well­park ex­pe­ri­ence. There will be work­shops, demon­stra­tions and pre­sen­ta­tions run­ning all af­ter­noon in ad­di­tion to the fo­rum and the chance to meet the peo­ple that will shape your fu­ture.
