Tonia Malva Dip ION - Director/Nutritional Therapist
I am a practising Nutritional Therapist based in Auckland. The promotion of health and well-being has been a driving force in my life for the last 20 years. First through independent study, then an open university course and finally formalising my studies at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition. I have a strong scientific grounding having gained a 'science foundation' qualification in 1998 before proceeding with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. After graduating I combined my business and research skills from past careers in sales and investigative research with my belief in the power of the body to heal itself and desire to help others.

I am enjoying a successful career as a Nutritional Therapist. I believe I can put this down to the extensive research I do into all aspects of my clients' health conditions and medical history. Together with keeping up to date with newly published research within the healthcare industry. This knowledge enables me to offer the very best health advice and products to my clients.

In 2005 I left London and moved to Auckland, New Zealand. I feel strongly that I want to live and work in a way that helps preserve the natural beauty of New Zealand. New Zealand is somewhere that now holds a very special place in my heart.

Over the years I have seen again and again the power of good food combined with high quality nutritional supplements help my clients achieve their health goals. My goal of optimising my own health has grown into a desire to help as many people as possible achieve a healthier quality of life. I feel that now is the right time for me to bring my enthusiasm and energy to an e-commerce shop as more and more people are using the internet to purchase their health products. I still run my private clinical practice (09 446 1061) providing a service where I assess my clients individual nutritional needs and possible deficiencies. I hope that Nzhealthstore will fill an apparent void in the marketplace by only selling the very best in health products to those people who do not come to me for a full nutritional consultation.

I firmly believe that nutritional therapy has the power to create a healthier state of body and mind for everyone. We have launched Nzhealthstore because we want to provide a new type of shopping experience. A shop that has both excellent customer service and takes into account the latest health care research. One that sells only the products that we assess as quality supplements from ethical companies. The Nzhealthstore site will not feature products that I consider to be inferior to any alternative on the market.

Amber - Security
Hi everyone, I'm in charge of security here at NZ Health Store. My whole life revolves around running, eating, and sleeping, although I do like to spend time with friends when I can. I take my job very seriously; I'm on guard day and night, 7 days a week. Staff are identified by smell as they enter the premises and all visitors must be accompanied by a member of our team otherwise they will not be allowed past the gate. This stringent security system means no intruders ever have an opportunity to tamper with your order while it's in our care. When the courier arrives to collect outgoing orders I bark as loud as I can and run around like crazy to alert the team. They'll never miss a pick up while I'm here.

I've tested most of the products in our Pet Care range. I highly recommend the K9 Flea Guard and the Nordic Naturals Omega 3. The fleas leave me alone and my joints feel great. As I have no need for money I've negotiated my pay in food and cuddles. If you have any questions please email one of the humans.
