Pioneering the Australian Naturopathic Summit with Rachel Arthur and Nirala Jacobi

It all started with the acknowledgement that there was a gap in the educational conference arena for a purely naturopathic-led event. An event that was clinic-focussed, non-commercial, where naturopaths could learn from naturopathic leaders in the Australian industry. Coming together Rachel Arthur, Nirala Jacobi, Kathryn Simpson and Nina Woods answered that call and little did they know, they would unleash a beast!

Initially crowd-funding the inaugural Australian Naturopathic Summit (ANS) back in 2016, the event took shape and now, they're preparing to do it all over again in 2018. Tasked with the responsibility of making it greater than the one before, today Nirala and Rachel join us on FX Medicine to share a glimpse of what they have lined up for the forthcoming ANS 2018 in Lennox Heads.
