WELCOME TO HOLISTIC REMEDIES
A naturopathic clinic run by Raji Samprathi, an accredited and qualified naturopath.
Naturopathic medical practice is based on the premise that healing is intrinsic to the nature of all living organisms and illness is nothing but a disruption of normal orderly function.
Would you like a tailored approach to restore your health with a treatment plan that is unique to you?
Would you like to understand how a range of factors like lifestyle, diet, the environment, mental, emotional, social and spiritual influences could be impacting on your health?
Raji takes a holistic view of presenting symptoms while formulating a health plan. She is committed to educating and empowering you to take charge of your health and will help you navigate your way from illness to wellness so that you can create a healthy, happy and meaningful life for yourself and the people around you.
Each patient carries his own doctor within.

Raji’s interest in health, healing and cooking began at a very young age – in her mother, grandmother and great grandmother’s kitchen in India. Raji’s great grandmother practiced Ayurveda until her mid-80s and her father was a practicing GP, laying the foundation for Raji’s foray into natural medicine. Food is Medicine was the mantra in her house. The ancient Ayurvedic traditions of daily self-care, including spiritual practices such as meditation and mindfulness, were an integral part of Raji’s growing up years. She also learnt how western medicine was used alongside ancient treatment options to restore wellness.
Her innate passion for food, health and medicine came to the fore after Raji moved to Australia. She felt a deep urge to delve deeper into health and healing and that led her to study Naturopathy at the Canberra Institute of Technology. This learning journey took her back to her roots and helped clarify for her the essence of health and the meaning behind Hippocrates’ words: ‘The human being can only be understood as a whole’. The whole person across all ancient healing systems includes the physical body, mind and spirit. And this is exactly what Holistic Remedies is all about – treating the person not the illness.
Raji is pursuing post-graduate qualifications in Counselling from the University of Canberra to further enhance her skills and abilities to be able to help patients successfully navigate through life and live a harmonious, healthy and fulfilling life. Raji is training to become an accredited Lifeline Telephone Crisis Support Counsellor.
