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 30 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.
Carmel is Peter’s assistant and dispensary co-ordinator. She is very familiar with homeopathic medicine, having used it her whole life.
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.
Peter is committed to professional development to maintain and improve the results and integrity of his work. He regularly treats adults, children and infants for both acute and chronic conditions. He recognizes that the mind and body are interconnected and applies this principle in practice.
