Founded in 1920, we are Australia’s oldest professional association of complementary therapists. Representing Western herbalists and naturopaths, we are the only national professional association specifically concerned with the practice and education of Western herbal medicine (WHM) in Australia. Our Vision is to:
We have a range of membership options for professionals, interested parties and students and our members have access to great resources, our online discussion forum, professional guidance and more!
We also work to connect the public with our highly trained practitioners through our Find A Practitioner service.
We are looking for a new member for our office team, as our wonderful membership & admin officer, Jennifer Ward is moving on.
Jen has been with us for over 2 years now and has added immeasurable value to our office. With her own naturopathic practice growing steadily, we will miss her greatly but are glad she is staying in touch as a member!

We are pleased to announce that we are implementing a subtle but important change to the NHAA. Over the coming weeks you will see the way we refer to the association, change to the Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia.

We invite authors to submit abstracts for presentations that align with the event themes of Innovation, Integration and Inspiration and the application of this to chronic health conditions including cancer, cardiovascular health, mental health, diabetes mellitus, asthma, arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions, obesity and dementia. Abstracts must align with one of the following sub-themes:
We are particularly interested in presentations that can provide practical application for herbalists, naturopaths, and health practitioners using herbal medicine

You may be aware that the Labor Party has announced their policy to stop rebates for Natural Therapies if they are elected on July 2, 2016.
There has been much discussion on this topic. The NHAA would like to clarify some facts and our understanding of the potential impact should this policy be enacted.
