The Natural Medicine Centre at St Leonards was created to promote the significant benefits and advantages of natural medicines and related therapies to the public. It was established by Peter Tumminello, a homeopath, naturopath and teacher with over 28 years experience. The Centre is the home of Peter’s work with essences and homeopathic medicines made from crystalline substances, the gem medicines. Peter, through his experiments, writings and teaching has pioneered this work around the world.
In recent years Genevieve Scase has joined the practice. She is an experienced homeopath with 15 years clinical experience. She brings a wealth of knowledge and her own specialities to the clinic.
The receptionist and dispensary co-ordinator is Nicki Whitfield who is qualified as a Naturopath.
The medicines prescribed at the centre are holistic, positively affecting mind, body and spirit. They are derived from minerals, gemstones, plants, flowers and animal products. This vista of natural substances has the potential to heal or alleviate the symptoms of a vast number of physical conditions as well as distressing mental and emotional states. Their efficacy has been established by experiment and clinically tested by practitioners in this field since the early 19th century.
Both Peter and Genevieve are committed to professional development to maintain and improve the results and integrity of their work. They regularly treat adults, children and infants for both acute and chronic conditions. They recognize that the mind and body are interconnected and apply this principle in practice.
