We started with a grand, yet simple vision for the future. A future where Big Pharma and Big Everything no longer has control over We, The People; where the power of choice is returned to the individual and we shift the paradigm from treating disease, to creating health.
Since it launched in April 2022, it has been adopted by The People in 31 countries as of Dec 2022. Here in New Zealand we have been growing the PHA since July 2022. How do we achieve this? By creating an organic, people-led approach to healthcare, bringing everything back to community level, for The People, by The People. Creating an integrated health initiative that aims to facilitate the creation of heart-centred health hubs at community level.
We’re here to facilitate your ideas, inspirations and creations within your local communities. We’re about collaborations, connections and support. We understand that health is far more than treating the symptoms of disease. We know that true health comes from taking an integrated approach, considering mind, body and spirit.
We want to support you to take ownership of your own health choices. How that looks will be different for each person but we want to encourage every single one of you to start viewing these choices as an investment in the health of your future self.
Here at The People’s Health Alliance, we hope to inspire you to shift your perceptions and mindset around healthcare. It’s time to start listening to yourself. Your body can tell you all sorts of things when you quieten your mind and really start to get in tune with it. We have been conditioned to look outside of ourselves for too long. It’s time to go within. It’s time to reconnect with nature and all of the healing qualities it holds.
Meet our NZ coordinators!
I am an Alexander Technique Teacher of 24 years and a Mother of two living on a small farm in the Far North. I have a passion for Natural medicine, Traditional healing practices and Spiritual innerstanding. I love to connect people and ideas and am inspired by visionaries like Katherine McBean and the other co founders of The People’s Health Alliance.
I connected with them soon after hearing about this wonderful initiative. Their enthusiasm for a practical grassroots solution to the crisis we find ourselves in resonated deeply within me.
Helping to bring this empowering, collaborative resource to New Zealand is a fulfilling privilege I am grateful for
Originally from England, I moved here in 2008 and live in West Auckland. I am a photographer, creative, an NLP Master Practitioner and a mother of two. I struggled with a challenged immune system for over 30 years and had many surgeries on my knee that haven’t resolved the issue. My health finally improved with intravenous Vitamin C, Auyervadic treatments, acupuncture, sacral cranial osteopathy, homeopathy, herbs and altering my diet to include nourishing food, removing all processed food.
It is so important to me to have a variety of affordable treatment options within our community, that we are educated from a young age on the importance of healthy food and how to maintain good health throughout our lives by finding those treatments that work for us. I love that PHA’s ultimate aim is to empower and strengthen communities to look after themselves and each other. In body, mind and spirit
