Yvette Vigor’s interest in natural health began at a very early age, watching her mother suffer with many health concerns, namely food allergies and intolerances.
Her mother’s ability to identify and eliminate triggers in a time when food intolerances were not recognised later inspired Yvette to study at The Endeavour College of Natural Health.
Graduating with both a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Nutritional Medicine) and a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Western Herbal Medicine), Yvette now assists others, not only to identify and avoid their own triggers, but also helps them to discover their underlying cause/s. This provides them with a fresh way of looking at their health concern in order to achieve a healthy balance naturally.
Yvette also works part-time at a hospital, which continuously highlights the need for preventative medicine and the importance of lasting lifestyle changes as opposed to temporary quick fixes (eg. keeping the weight off).
Yvette is an accredited member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) www.anta.com.au. to ensure the standard of naturopathy is upheld in Australia and to enable health rebate claims.
ANTA is the largest national democratic association of ‘recognised professional’ traditional medicine and natural therapy [Complementary Medicine] practitioners who work in the areas of health care and preventative medicine.
