Hello, my name is Rebecca Lang BHSc (Comp Med); Adv Dip Nat; Adv Dip Ntn: Adv Dip West. Herb.

– Naturopath, Nutritionist, Wellness Expert, Retreat Facilitator, Author, Entrepreneur

I grew up in Perth, not far out of Fremantle. I always felt a little bit different to everyone else as a child, I was very sensitive and seemed to feel things deeply. Before I even finished high school I had an interest in Naturopathy. I moved to Queensland to pursue my studies, and still live there now.

For the last 15 years I have owned and operated Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre where I work as a Naturopath and a Nutritionist.  I consult for people in my local community and world wide via Telehealth.  I also own Of The Earth Juice Bar & Health Shop and Of The Earth Publishing.

I am passionate about educating people about their own body and the messages it is telling them and searching for the root cause. I use a synergistic approach using modern scientific and naturopathic testing to decipher many messages from the body and then treat with natural medicines and healthy food programs.

The testing can then be used to analyse the results and improvements over time. My goal is to help you with healing your body, mind and spirit so you can feel and see yourself the changes and improvements you have made, so you can be the best version of yourself, and achieve your goals.

Over the years, by testing for Oxidative Stress, I have seen that most humans, especially women, need to be detoxed regularly.  I now focus a lot in this area to assist with the prevention of disease and assisting people to age with wellness. I facilitate regular wellness retreats and wellness online programs.

I also believe in the best of both worlds of medicine. By safely combining natural medicines to assist in reducing side effects of pharmaceutical medicine, it may help to improve one’s quality of life on a daily basis. I believe in complimenting the medical and pharmaceutical systems and working towards the best health outcomes for my clients.

My personal interests include spending time with my family and pets, yoga, pilates, personal training, stand up paddleboarding, spending time at the ocean, meditation, cooking and gardening.
