Welcome. I'm Gemma Knaap, naturopath and founder of Southernwood Apothecary and Clinic.

I hold a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy and have a special interest in herbal medicine and supporting women at all ages and stages to overcome their health challenges.

I am a certified Natural Fertility Educator, experienced helping couples struggling with unexplained infertility or recurrent miscarriage. I have also completed specialised training in the natural management of complex genitourinary diagnoses.

Too often, following generic diet or lifestyle advice just isn't enough. You've probably tried that already, and it just hasn't given you the relief and vitality you are looking for. With so much information out there, so many experts just a click away, how do you even begin to sort through all the noise? Perhaps you feel like you've tried everything or you've been told there's nothing more you can do. Maybe all your tests have come back normal but you can't remember the last time you felt like yourself. 


Personalised health care is at the core of all I do. Every single woman I see comes with her own story, no matter what her diagnosis or symptoms. Listening to that story, getting to the bottom of what's ailing you and tailoring treatment to your unique circumstances is exactly what I'm here to do. 

So if you're ready to commit to taking a natural approach to your health 

you can contact me to make a booking.

If you'd like some more information, or you have questions, please don't hesitate to
