Its is with great sadness, that the Natural Health Society is being wound up from February 2018. The final meeting will be held on 3 April 2018 at the Unley Community Centre for Members ONLY at 7.30pm.
The history of the Society is below. Unfortunately the internet has been a major contributing factor in the demise of the Society with its ready access of information. Thank you to all who have supported over the many years since it has been operating.
The Natural Health Society SA was founded in 1962 by John Fielder ND and a small group of health enthusiasts. They were inspired by a visiting lecturer, Martin Pretorius ND from America, to form a group and have regular meetings on natural health-related subjects given by a guest speaker.
Speakers have included Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Alternative Medicine Doctors, Reflexologists, Herbalists, Dentists and Podiatrists who have spoken of the latest well-being practices in their area.
There have been other speakers on such topics as Organic Gardening, Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Sound Pollution, Mental Health, Electromagnetic Radiation and Natural Eye Care.
Meetings were originally held monthly but are now held bi-monthly. Please click here for the next meeting date.
A newsletter was introduced which has health information and tips for well- being. This is available to members.
The Society has also built up an extensive library of books, CDs and DVDs for members to borrow.
As part of the preparation for the Society’s 50th Anniversary in 2012, a history was prepared – “The N.H.S. Story, The First 50 Years: 1962-2012.”

The Society had a Food Catering Stall at the Earth Fair at Wayville Showgrounds from 1978 to 1987 to raise money for the Society. It was a great success. A Cookbook, “Living health for Vitality,” was put together by a small Committee (1978) and reprinted several times.
