All the teas are certified organic and blended by Naturopath Renée Blanchardt.
Renée an English-Australian citizen, has a passion for nutrition, herbal medicine and Homeopathy. Renée holds a Bachelor of Health Science (BHSc Homeopathy) and an Advanced Diploma of Health Science (Adv Dip HSc Naturopathy) from Australia. It was her dream to understand the intricate mechanisms of the human condition and to provide individualized natural and holistic solutions for others with lasting results.
Renée's passion for natural medicine started at a young age. From age 8 she suffered from migraines and realised then that medicine given to her would make the pain go away temporarily but not solve the root cause. From age 20 she began her career in natural medicine, and now has 25 years’ experience spanning three continents, Renée is now based in Zürich and loves to provide consultations and make a meaningful impact to peoples lives.
Before arriving in Zürich, Renée was based in India and South East Asia for many years as well as London where she was instrumental in bringing Austria's Viva Maya clinics to London. She has been fortunate to work in the highest level wellness destinations worldwide, including Chiva Som and Kamalaya to name a few.
After her graduation, Renée started her career in the UK as a Nutrition clinic supervisor and working as a voluteer Homeopath across rural India for many years. Here she gained unique and valuable clinical experience and incredible memories which shaped her to this day.
Since then, she has been in demand as a clinician internationally and worked with many individuals across many countries. She has a special affinity for stress and anxiety, and working with trauma. She grounds her work in practice with dietary and lifestyle changes to bring out the best in individuals lives.
Renée's work has been featured in The Times, Vogue, Luxurious Magazine, Grazia, The Mail on Sunday, Qatar Airways, European Spa, Professional Spa & Beauty and Australian body+soul.
Renée has led hundreds of individuals on detoxification, weight management, and life transformation retreats. She has also worked with individuals experiencing chronic conditions and adrenal fatigue, thyroid conditions, hormonal problems and gastrointestinal disorders.
She is also a 500-hour registered Yoga Instructor (Rishikesh, India) trained in Hatha & Ashtanga and has studied under Kino Macgreggor.
When she is not in clinic she can be found at the lake, or at home cooking, or in winter, up the mountain skiing.
