Elspeth Taimre completed Diplomas in Iridology, Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy with Farida Sharan ND in the School of Natural Medicine 1984-1988 in Cambridge, England.
“After moving to Australia, In the early 1990’s, I brought Farida three times to Perth, Australia to teach advanced courses in Naturopathy Herbal Medicine and Iridology. She was featured on television and radio and also gave talks in health conferences in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.”
“I am forever grateful to my primary teacher, mentor and radiant example of health and wholeness, Dr Farida Sharan. Thank you, Farida, for pointing the way with such love and dedication.”
“I have been in clinical practice for over 13 years, and have lectured to students of Nutrition and Iridology for 7 years. I’m passionate about sharing the simple truths that have been such a blessing to my family, students and clients. Time and again I have witnessed the healing power of naturopathy, herbal medicine, essential oils and flower essences, and the transformative capacity of purification programs.
“In 2004 I founded Indigo Bean, School of Living Health, with friend and colleague Susan Sadler, to teach classes in nutrition, healthy food preparation, living food and detoxification.
“The first changes I made in my own Self Healing process were dietary, including more fresh fruits and vegetables, cutting out processed foods, and using vegetarian proteins instead of meat. My energy was better and I felt lighter and clearer and my eyes looked brighter, I had endless energy, and no longer wanted to eat and drink the processed, salty, sugary foods that I had eaten before. I gave up coffee, sugar and alcohol, exercised more, drank more water, discovered herbal teas, and continued to experiment with colourful and vibrant juices made from fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. I felt amazed and inspired as the tides of regeneration and healing surfaced as I knew I was experiencing the healing power of Nature as my body replaced the old with the new with awesome intelligence. As my body healed,
“I used vibrational homeopathic medicine with the Bach Flower Remedies to help clear emotional resistances, and discovered the immense power of focus and intent. Practices such as yoga and meditation have become a part of my daily life.
“The experience of raising two children while completing formal education in Natural Medicine provided me with many opportunities to put into practice the principles of natural health and healing that I was studying. My children are now 21 and 17, and neither have ever needed to see a doctor for medical treatment. I have had many opportunities to be grateful for the preventative power of a natural diet high in living foods, and for the healing capacity of herbs, good nutrition, rest, exercise.” Elspeth Taimre, School of Natural Medicine Graduate Naturopath, Master Herbalist, Master Iridologist, Bibra Lake, near Perth, Australia.
