My Life & my Love for Health & Wellbeing
Hello 🙂 Please let me introduce myself. I was named Tina Krombach and have been living on this beautiful planet since 1979. From a young age I was – and still am – passionate about nature´s healing powers and wisdom that provides us with simple yet effective tools to improve health and wellbeing.
Over the years I learned that for me body, mind and soul are to be considered equally when it comes to being well and also when we want to heal in natural and holistic ways. One of the ways in which I decided to follow my passion was to study naturopathy and homeopathy in my home country Germany; at Europe’s largest college for natural healing, “Paracelsus”.
Another way in which my passion manifested, already before and also during my studies, was by designing and facilitating courses, classes and retreats for
- Reflexology massage
- Autogenic training (an art of self- hypnosis and a technique to re-program the nervous system)
- Fasting and detox
In 2004 I successfully graduated as German ‘Heilpraktikerin’ (holistic healing and natural medicine practitioner) at the German Ministry of Health. Over the years, while working in my private naturopathy practice, I studied and integrated even more holistic healing modalities into my own work.
After more than two decades of gaining professional experiences in three countries, Germany, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates, I now specialize in and offer the following healing modalities to you:
- Classical homoeopathy
- Herbal medicine
- Auricular/ear acupuncture
- Reflexology massage
- Reiki treatment
- Relaxation therapy & meditation
- Autogenic training
- Family & systemic constellation therapy
- Detox & fasting therapy
- Yoga therapy & yin yoga
- Healthy lifestyle coaching
When I relocated to New Zealand in 2008 I practiced these healing modalities in a holistic health center and a herbal dispensary for almost six years. I also continued to offer various health courses, classes and residential detox retreats, while also beginning to publish articles related to health and wellbeing in a variety of journals and magazines.
Between 2011 and 2013 my partner and I first founded and then operated NZeolite in New Zealand, the first Australia-Pacific business for the detox supplement Zeolite and other mineral and herbal body cleansing treatments.
From 2013 until 2018 I resided in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). While practicing in the renowned integrative medical center DNA in Abu Dhabi, and later in Dubai, I was teaming up with a functional nutritionist, a functional medicine physician and internal medicine doctor. We have been practicing a unique type of team consultation. As the clinical team, we took the case of our patients together in a joint consultation and laid out a very comprehensive and holistic, separate yet coordinated, treatment protocol.
My naturopathy practice in the UAE also included the organization of community events to raise awareness for holistic healing modalities, including the first three annual Global Wellness Days.
It was nice to see that the multinational expat community, local Sheikhas and Sheiks as well as wellness tourists from all walks of life, even royal family members and country leaders, were interested in embracing holistic healing, and especially detox fasting.
Holistic healing methods entail life-long learning. I continue to learn from nature, by experience, from other experts as well as a lot from the people I work with and for. Health needs, predominant diseases and healing modalities vary from culture to culture. And they also vary from individual to individual. Since my approach to practice natural medicine and holistic healing is focused on the individual human being and not the “disease” as in conventional medicine, I create my consultations and treatments according to the personal needs of my patients. My naturopathic and homoeopathic consultations cover the person’s medical history and family history; acute and chronic physical ailments; emotional, mental and psychological complaints as well as trauma and injuries. Rather than focusing on a symptom or a single disease, my treatments include the whole person and the root cause(s) of the health challenges of my patients.
As a certified Fasting Therapist (which is possibly a unique title in Germany and Austria), I have been developing individualized detox protocols and fasting retreats that help to cleanse the body and clear the mind for more than 17 years. Cleansing the body on the cellular level and the involved elimination of toxins has proven to be a beneficial foundation treatment before working with other healing modalities. Detoxification greatly enhances the effect of many kinds of therapies and natural medicine.
In my consultations I emphasize the importance of disease prevention and self-care for good health through informed, healthy lifestyle choices. In my opinion it is most beneficial to treat diseases and illnesses holistically and beyond that to empower people to become and stay healthy and well. Supporting people in discovering and unfolding their full potential feels most rewarding and important to me.
