Genevieve Hunt

Genevieve Hunt, ND BHSc (Nat)

Director and Advanced Scientific Naturopath

Genevieve has worked in the health industry for nearly two decades. With a background in Nursing, her passion for preventative health and natural medicine began before expanding to become the leading Advanced Scientific Naturopath in Australia.

As a nurse Genevieve witnessed firsthand some of the areas of orthodox treatments that were unable to address chronic illnesses. These shortcomings became the springboard that inspired her to find her life purpose – to enable disheartened and chronically ill patients to return to their optimal health through her Naturopathic Clinic, The Tonic Tree.

Genevieve’s goal is to help instil hope in the hearts of her patients. She has seen countless times the transformative powers of empathy and hope that lead to true healing with outstanding results.

Genevieve’s mission is to help people access Advanced Scientific Naturopathy, wherever they are in Australia. Whilst Genevieve addresses all conditions successfully, she specialises in Natural Therapy for chronic immune and gastrointestinal conditions, offering hope to those who feel hopeless.

Genevieve is often labelled the ‘Naturopath’s Naturopath’, with her reputation in the industry long established over decades of successful healing work. It is not uncommon for colleagues to refer both themselves and their most difficult patients to her for profound Naturopathy treatment.

Genevieve is also known internationally in the industry as one of the leading biological medicine experts. Always keeping her knowledge cutting edge, she enjoys traveling both nationally and internationally to liaise with other natural medicine and biological medicine experts.

Genevieve is warm, empathetic and caring and will always do her utmost to help you reach your optimal health potential goals.
