AnnaMaree Downing Homeopath
Hello, I’m AnnaMaree Downing , Australian Homeopath living in Indonesia (Bali). A little about me:
After secondary school , I started my professional life studying Nursing, although from a very young age I had a keen interest in anything natural and holistic . At the end of my nursing studies I worked in Paediatrics and the Outback of Australia, as a Nurse Practitioner on remote Aboriginal and Cattle Communities. Still in my early 20s I commenced studies to qualify in Homeopathy 4 years later. I have been in private practice since 1991.
I love Homeopathy and used it from the time my daughter was born , as well when we moved to Papua New Guinea with villagers there , where I worked as a volunteer Susu Mamas counsellor ( nursing mothers) whilst my husband at the time, flew aeroplanes, and I juggled new motherhood and studies.
I also have qualifications in Naturopathy (ND) and Functional Medicine, as well as Clinical Hypnotherapy & Kinesiology, Nutritional Medicine and Natural Fertility ( utilizing homeopathy).
I have established in the past a few Wellness Centres in Australia ( Cairns, Albany, Denmark, ) where I worked predominantly as a Homeopath, as well as a short period as the Principal of a College of Natural Medicine – in 2008 I moved with my then 12 year old son , to Bali , Indonesia. I had been assisting a Childrens Home near Ubud Bali with finding school sponsorship in Australia. We moved to a tiny village outside of Ubud and actually lived at the Children’s Home for the first year! At this time I treated the Children and the surrounding villagers with Homeopathy as a Volunteer and my son played in the ricefields, learnt Balinese and Indonesian, and schooled with the school of life (and my homeschooling based on Steiner Education).
In 2009 , I was encouraged to start health and wellness retreats here in Ubud , Bali , my company Bali Vitality was founded. We use homeopathy alongside our other therapies for clients on health programs and retreats, and I continue to work in private practice here and online with clients worldwide, including clients from my previous clinics in Australia. Homeopathy is always my first modality of treatment . Its effective and safe, and by following a system, finding the correct and appropriate remedy, it really works!
My passions aside from my profession , are enjoying nature , travel, children and dance – I took up Latin dance and Argentinian Tango 4 years ago , and Love it ! Travelling to other cultures and dance festivals also takes my time , as well as visiting my family in Australia.
I’m a mother of two, a daughter and son , and currently have two very young grandchildren! My son now attends University in Melbourne Australia, leaving me here happily in Ubud with 3 little dogs , the newest came to me during the 2020 Pandemic! I use homeopathy on my pets and also with the rescue volunteers for street dogs here in Bali.
How can I help you? Well I should have added helping people, to my interests, as I have a strong desire to help people , particularly to wellness – physical and emotional. Having experienced a Thyroid condition myself, I have a strong interest in assisting people with thyroid & hormonal issues (including PCOS, PeriMenopause, Andropause etc.) and I really love work with babies and children. However, with Homeopathy we don’t need to know the name of the condition, we work with the whole person, and all your symptoms including emotions , are told to the Homeopath like a story, during the consultation, then by matching your symptoms to the remedy that fits closest we aim to relieve and stop your symptoms ! I hope to be able to help you or a member of your family soon!
I have special interest in Hormonal Health and Thyroid conditions.
I have consulted for my health with AnnaMaree Downing since 1997 when she had a wellness centre in Albany. Even now whilst she lives in Indonesia I still seek health advise from her. AnnaMaree is very easy to talk to and consult with , she is helpful and empathetic as well as professional and very knowledgable. She has a great long time love and passion for Homeopathy and has open my interest to find out more.
She has assisted me with general health, Thyroid, and Hormones over the years
I can even remember her treating goats and cattle with Homeopathy when living on a near Albany.
I highly recommend AnnaMaree as a Homeopath with other complementary modalities which makes her consulting and treatment plans even better!
AnnaMaree has been my practitioner to turn to when living in Bali, and still now that I am back in Western Australia. She has assisted me greatly during my Menopause , boosted my Thyroid Function ,and treated my husband also for hormonal issues. She is a strong advocate of Homeopathic Medicine, and combines her other functional medicine and nutritional knowledge in her work. I would recommend her for anyone Female or Male and families, looking for a carinig , holistic approach to your health and wellbeing.
Many , many years ago I was asked by a new Rudolph Steiner group in Cairns, Qld to come and talk at their symposium on Steiner Education, AnnaMaree Downing was a founding member of this group , and was able to help me with an acute situation at the time, as a Homeopath. Travelling from interstate I “picked up a bug along the way” and the first morning woke there in Cairns with NO VOICE, I had to speak the next day, I was the guest speaker! Telephoning AnnaMaree she came and consulted with me, giving me a Homeopathic remedy, which I repeated that day and the next morning, and my voice returned I was able to speak that next evening at the event! As a sidenote, about 3 years later I was teaching at a Steiner school in rural western Australia where annamaree also moved to and I educated her two children for some years ! Highly recommended,
