HELLO, I’M DR KIRSTEY HOLLAND
Hi there! I’m Dr Kirstey Holland, and I’m currently in the midst of perimenopause.
As a qualified Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and practitioner of Environmental and Nutritional Medicine, I work with women over the age of 35 who are struggling with gut disorders, hormonal imbalances, metabolic issues, anxiety, weight gain, and more.
That’s why I’ve developed THE HOLLAND CLINIC PERI/MENOPAUSAL POWER PLAN, which features five science-backed, evidence-based elements to help women take control of their health and wellbeing during this important time.
I am a qualified Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and hold a double degree in acupuncture and herbal medicine. I am a practitioner of Environmental and Nutritional Medicine, Functional Medicine and Naturopathy. I’m a person-centred counsellor and a qualified health coach. For a comprehensive list of my qualification, click here.
I bring a ‘new’ approach to healthcare – grounded in ancient wisdom. An approach that can be personalised for every woman. Because we are all unique in our own special way.
Why do I do what I do?
I was the girl who used food to calm myself and feel safe. I ate when I felt stressed and constantly tried to restrict my diet, only to then binge.
Through my own journey with food addiction and personal struggles with body image, I discovered a passion for Eastern mysticism and Ayurvedic medicine.
This led me to study Traditional Chinese Medicine and naturopathy, earning multiple degrees across the world relating to health.
Today, I believe that healing, sealing, and repairing the gut, rebalancing hormones, and rescuing metabolic health are essential for feeling vibrant and extending our health span.
At the Holland Clinic, we focus on a 3-part process to rescue women from the hormonal roller coaster of perimenopause: repairing the gut, immunity, and metabolism; rebalancing hormones and life; and reclaiming metabolic health to prevent chronic disease.
My approach is not about reinventing the wheel – it’s about making it work for you, so you can take control, get off the rollercoaster, and never diet again.
Through practical tools and the 80/20 rule, I want to help women integrate their story into their health in a positive way.
If you’re struggling with perimenopause, I’d love to assist you on your journey to feeling balanced, full of vitality, and ready to live a life that’s more harmonious and graceful.
My obsession to manage my weight and my own personal disillusionment with western medicine led me to study Traditional Chinese medicine and naturopathy in both Australia and in China. I earned several degrees at a number of institutions across the world relating to health.
This journey of deep learning has today led me to understand that as a woman, our health is intrinsically linked with our own experiences and trauma.
I now know that the single most effective way to feel vibrant is to heal, seal and repair the gut, to rebalance your hormones and in the process, rescue your metabolic health. When we do this we extend our health span, the time we feel healthy and vital during our life.
I have been in clinical practice since 2000 having studied and practiced alongside some of the best health practitioners around the world – focusing on how to live in a beautifully balanced way that allows us to feel comfortable in our own skin.
I live by the 80/20 rule and use practical tools that are designed to support the stage of life I’m in: peri/menopause.
I want you to know it’s possible to integrate your story into your health in a positive way. It’s possible to come back into balance, live a full and happy life and get off the rollercoaster so you can live a life that’s more harmonious and graceful.
I’d love to assist you.
