Self Care

Seek Thyself

Graduate Shanti in her practice in Golden Bay, New Zealand
Self Care is the beginning of conscious respect for your body, health and being.

An awakening of noticing and experiencing feelings and messages about what you choose to eat and drink, and the day by day life choices you make, creates the person you become and the life you live. Choices are cause and effect and so new choices of self care begin a new life.

This awakening inspires a seeking about the purpose of life, goals and the self care required to achieve your goals and dreams.


Shanti graduated from the School of Natural Medicine in Boulder, Colorado in 2001, and after a year of WOOF adventures, settled in Golden Bay, New Zealand, married, and became a mother as she developed a Naturopathy practice, and an herb company.

Shanti attends festivals all over New Zealand with her Iridology camera to spread the good news of natural medicine and also give Reflexology sessions. Further studies called and she gained her certification in colonics to better assist seekers of health, healing and wellness.

Student Daniel sitting in a field of lupines in Boulder, Colorado
Self Healing begins with willingness to experiment with choices to transform habits no longer serving you. Enhance natural gifts and overcome fears, resistances, habits, and wounds holding you back.

Master confident, clear communication that expresses who you are and enhances what you wish to achieve.

Become a student of your own life, body, mind, heart soul. The laboratory of your being gives you understanding through experiencing the teachings.


Daniel travelled  to Boulder, Colorado from Sydney Australia three times to attend Summer Schools and repeat favorite classes for deeper understanding, twice for three months and once for six months. During his third visit, he attended a two week Naturopathy Graduation Immersion at a healing center in upstate New York 

Previously an engineer, Daniel sought personal self healing evolution and freedom from work in the corporate world by evolving a creative health centered livelihood. On return to Australia, Daniel created an herb product company, a private practice to share his new skills, offered community service to elders, and partnered with his father who retired early to help build a company to provide Kombucha to health food stores and markets.

Hosting booths at festivals, markets and fairs and gifting his Reflexology and Essential Oils skills and talents to residents of YeruAllowa, an elder home, keeps Daniel busy as he continues his studies and expands his knowledge in a mountain community above Sydney.

Thrive with Daniel meant finding his way to create and independent creative life where he could enjoy being himself. Along the way he helps people everyday with every aspect of his lifework. Daniel’s evolution is a prime example of ‘Thrive together to Survive Together’ enjoying family and community in life and work.

“Naturopathy Immersions, One to One Online Mentored Studies and the Self Healing Module with Farida provided a conduit into self-discovery. 

The more I live, feel and pay attention, the more I am able to help others to discover their personal gateway to healing."

Discrimination awareness evolves as Life Skills are applied toward deeper commitments of Life Healing.

Life learning is a practice to make the most from opportunities and face challenges with skill and strength.


Rosa, a Nursing Assistant entered the School of Natural Medicine on the recommendation of her employer, Naturopath, Master Herbalist, Master Iridologist Graduate of the School of Natural Medicine, Barbara Pina, of the RA Healing Center in Massachusetts.

She committed enthusiastically to creating a healthy life path of radiant health by applying purification, regeneration and transformation philosophies in action with daily life choices.

Challenged by Online Study assignments because English was her second language, Rosa studied and attained high levels of reading and writing skills in order to graduate.

A loving mother, friend, student and practitioner, Rosa was the youngest in a large family, raised with many siblings and family members who loved and cared for her as she grew up in Honduras.

Naturopath Graduate, Maggie Knauer, shares her experience of Self Healing transformation during her Naturopathy studies. Maggie now resides in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where
she works in a herbal health store, builds a consulting practice and enjoys leading educational nature hikes in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

“School of Natural Medicine is unique. I felt supported by small classes, individual attention, experiential learning and emotional healing processes, as I learned how to share, dialogue, question and get to the crux of an issue by continuing diving deep until the truth is revealed.

“Healing Diets was the basis for my Self-Healing program. You ARE what you eat! If you want to feel alive, eat live food. It is as simple as that!

“Flower Essences and Essential Oils helped me understand the root of disease starts with the emotions, and supported me resolve old wounds, blocks and ingrained misinformation stored in my cells as they paved the way to a more truthful and authentic outlook and much-improved health. Reflexology, Raindrop, Vagus and Auricular provided the skills to facilitate healing transformation with the oils and essences.
“Iridology with Farida revealed the body is the iris as well as the soul. As a born skeptic (“Prove it!”), I happily discovered Iridology is a science displaying health and disease pathways, acute and chronic illnesses indications, and predisposition to personality traits.

In Herbal Medicine classes, I learned to connect deeply with plants and their energies, essences and healing properties, to truly listen to plants so that I can hear their messages. Herbal nutrients also provided strong healing in my inner ecology herbal nutrient formulas, assisting my Self-Healing process.

“I entered the School of Natural Medicine with the intention of studying, and graduated four years later with a whole new life and eyes that turned blue! I watched my irises clear, brighten and turn blue as yellow disappeared during purification and regeneration programs as I created a new lifestyle.

Farida, I love how you keep evolving your classes and methods to share your knowledge and wisdom. I cannot thank you enough for all you've done for me!

As I delved deeply into my own self, I faced my fears. I overcame my resistance to opening up and trusting, and am rewarded ad infinitum. I developed courage and found clarity to free myself to lead a happy and fulfilling life. The future is mine to create. With much gratitude,”

Farida, my wonderful soul-mother, saw me in the worst of the throws of anorexia / bulimia disease. During the Summer School Integrated Immersion Retreat, I experienced Naturopathy Chakras and Elements of Life healing processes and found the fight of fire to pull away from anorexia nervosa.

I followed her advice and found the strength and ability to go to the Ann Wigmore Institute of Living Foods In Puerto Rico where I healed through wheatgrass nutrition and wonderful whole living and sprouted foods that helped to clear my mind to know what I needed to do to survive.

Nichola shares her study experience:

Healing with Nature is a Spiritual Path and personal growth is an art form and a way of life. I evolved on a spiritual path to honor my strengths and strengthen my weaknesses.

Skills, tools, and knowledge are given to become a competent and effective Naturopath. The philosophy inspired me to become a living example of the teachings. As I embodied the teachings and experienced Naturopathy treatments and Healing Diets during my personalized Self Healing. I experienced what it means to be well and opened a portal to my true self and full potential.

Iridology taught me to be a more compassionate human being to empower clients to master their inherited constitutional strengths & weaknesses. Note the changes in Nichola's irises!

Herbal Medicine taught me a new respect for nature with understanding of how plants heal to assist us on emotional and physical levels.

Elements of Life awakened me to a world woven of elemental energy – earth, water, fire, air, ether – the basic forces of inner and outer nature to be kept in balance.

Naturopathy taught me skills of great Naturopathy masters and instilled an understanding of the healing power of nature with Healing Diets and lifestyle choices based on Farida's teachings of purification, regeneration and transformation.

Self Healing encouragement to“dig deep” within myself and discover the underlying causes of illness rather than listing symptoms of dis-ease helped me learn to design Naturopathic treatment plans using therapies that are gentle, non-invasive and most of all effective."
