Bettina Buch

Naturopath, Nutritionist, Medical Herbalist

Dip Nat., Dip Nutr., Dip Herb Med., CT-DGZ, CT-IAC, MNZSN

Bettina has been working in the medical field since 1984. She completed 3 years of study in Germany to qualify as a medical assistant, working with GPs and medical specialists before later returning to medical school to become a certified Cytotechnologist. She is internationally certified in the specialised field of cancer diagnosis and has worked in laboratories in both Germany and New Zealand.

Bettina moved to New Zealand in 1998 to follow her life-long interest in nutrition, wellbeing and herbal medicine by enrolling to study at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in Auckland. There she completed Diplomas of Naturopathy, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine plus a Certificate of Massage.

Bettina is passionate about supporting and guiding people on their quest to find balance and optimal health. She has experienced this being achieved through adjusting diet and lifestyle, complemented by the use of appropriate herbal and nutritional medicine. Coming from a medical background she combines traditional and natural therapies that are evidence based and scientifically researched.

Her approach is to holistically address underlying causes as well as symptoms of disease and to create a treatment plan which is tailored to the specific needs of the individual. It is important to her to work with the person and to relate and respond to individual needs and circumstances.

Bettina’s special interests are in preventative care, maintaining vitality, healthy ageing and chronic health conditions including support during and after cancer therapies.

Bettina looks forward to advising, assisting and empowering you towards health, vitality and happiness.


What I Do



What They Say

This is the second year that Bettina has provided our people with mini health assessments as part of our Wellbeing Programme.  Bettina provides a holistic service and quickly pinpoints specific areas that each individual can focus on to improve their health. I have found Bettina to be knowledgeable and professional and will definitely be incorporating her services into our Wellbeing Programme on an ongoing basis.”

“Bettina is outstanding and has given me such helpful and meaningful advice in relation to my health. I am feeling and looking a lot brighter!   Thank you!”

Jane, Auckland

“I had a twenty minute general health assessment with Bettina.  In that short time, Bettina quickly identified gaps in my diet that she believed could be contributing to my having occasional bouts of fatigue and feeling run down.  I made the changes to my diet that Bettina recommended and have felt absolutely fantastic since – with more consistent energy levels and no feelings or symptoms of fatigue whatsoever.”
