The gentle key to your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Perth Naturopaths since 1979

As one of the most established, trusted and largest natural medical clinics in Australia, we pride ourselves on our exceptional practitioners, who collectively have over 230 years of experience in the industry. Our team provides a co-ordinated in-house approach to a broad range of health conditions.

Our excellent track record and long list of satisfied patients has helped us achieve our impressive Australia-wide reputation from our base in Perth.


All our Naturopaths are accredited by the ANTA Accreditation Board and are registered by the Federal Government’s TGA, which allows them to prescribe high-potency therapeutic nutritional supplements designed to correct health problems as opposed to relatively low dosage over the counter products . This ensures patients receive cost-effective and successful treatments.

Nutritional Medicine

The cornerstone of naturopathy is nutritional medicine. It is our main function and focus as nutrition plays an important role into every function of our lives, holistically, physically and mentally.

It is well recognised that a healthy, nutritious diet is the cornerstone of good health and this plays a vital role in the guidelines given by our PNMC practitioners.

Busy lifestyles and convenience fast foods can often compromise health levels. Quite frequently, simple dietary adjustments can dramatically improve the energy, stamina and immune systems of individuals.

All humans are unique in terms of biochemistry, metabolism, anatomy and genetics. Our internal environment differs in gut flora, integrity of the intestinal wall and the immune system are all different and unique in their composition and complexity.

A generalisation on nutrition does not work with everyone's differences and circumstances. Everyone’s balance point is different and it changes over time. That is why at PNMC our Naturopaths home in on finding your nutritional balance point to achieve the maximum wellness that you are seeking.

Val Allen

Dip.Ed., ND

Founder & Principal Naturopath

Val is recognised as the ‘Matriarch’ of Natural Therapies in Western Australia, having been practising, lecturing and involved in representing Naturopaths at a national level since 1979. Val is a Fellow, Life Member and past National Council member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association and is well known for her regular health column in the West Australian newspaper, her health handbook Very Wellness, regular media interviews and is valued by the many thousands of patients who are still guided by her care.

Having such a large patient following and with her special focus on complex cases and cancer patient care, Val has selected a team of excellent, very experienced professional colleagues to cater for the ever- increasing volume of patients. These practitioners will successfully guide you on your wellness journey. This means that there is always an appropriate practitioner available to address your specific health concerns within PNMC.

After 1973, Val diverted from science teaching to Naturopathy when she was able to prolong her terminally- ill husband’s life by fifteen months, instead of the predicted six weeks to allow bonding time for their newborn son. This was achieved by dietary and nutritional changes alone and convinced Val that she could, through naturopathic training, make a real difference to the health of Western Australians.

That loss, love and compassion is what drives her and why Perth Natural Medical Clinic is the success it is today.
