“Hello, my name is Rebecca Lang BHSc (Comp Med); Adv Dip Nat; Adv Dip Ntn: Adv Dip West. Herb
I grew up in Perth, not far out of Fremantle. I always felt a little bit different to everyone else as a child, I was very sensitive and seemed to feel things deeply. I soon learnt not to watch scary movies or even watch the news.
I was quite unwell as a child and always struggled with digestive issues and basically didn’t like food.
Before I even finished high school I had an interest in Naturopathy, but it was not covered under HECS and the course had to be paid for upfront. My first job when finishing year 12 was at a doctor’s surgery where I worked alongside the doctor assisting with procedures and clinical duties. I loved helping people.
At 18 I was offered work in Port Hedland in WA, working in financial planning, taxation and bookkeeping. I started this work initially hoping I could save the money to pay for my Naturopathy studies. During this time I did my Reiki 1, 2 and Masters courses, massage courses and every spiritual development workshop I could access.
Five years later I moved back to Perth. I was married and had a baby and while he was 6 weeks old, I did an exam towards a Diploma in Financial Planning and was continuing my studies in this area. I soon realised I did not want to waste my time studying something I didn’t love and started my Naturopathy course, saving up for and studying one subject at a time.
My son had many digestive issues and food intolerances, which increased my interest in Nutrition. The doctors advised to give him Nurofen, I took him off gluten and saw immediate improvements.
I was studying Advance Diplomas in Nutritional Medicine, Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine. I also wanted to do a Bachelor in Health Science (Complementary Medicine) but this was not available in WA so my family and I moved to Qld 4 hours North of Brisbane to Bargara. A beautiful spot on the beach.
I decided I wanted experience in the medical industry so left the financial planning and taxation industry to work at a private hospital.
Working on the wards gave me patient contact and understanding and the theatre bookings helped me to understand procedures and I was lucky enough to stand in on some surgeries and hold a gallbladder or a thyroid etc.
I then worked for a couple of different surgeons and an Audiologist which greatly enhanced my knowledge.
This was all done while also studying full time externally and attending University Of New England NSW twice a year for lectures and lab work, and also Health Schools Australia at the Gold Coast twice a year for lectures and lab work. That was my annual leave for those years.
I also did go half way through a Bachelor of Nursing during this time but then decided to defer as I couldn’t actually afford to take time off to do the prac hours. I was still working hard to support my family and pay my degree upfront.
While studying I was soon lead back into taxation and opened my own bookkeeping business which gave me more flexibility with hours, so I could also get some work and experience at a health food shop and allow time to do clinical hours over a 2 year period with an amazing Naturopath who was about to retire. During this time I did a Diploma of Urine Biochemistry under my Mentor Naturopath.
In October 2008 I finally completed my studies and on the day of my graduation I did not attend but instead started consulting that day.
With a clinic built on the side of my house in the last year of study I was excited to begin. Many years later I am still loving being a Naturopath and Nutritionist. The clinical research and experience I have received over the years has taught me so much, on top of my studies and my time working in the medical industry. I also worked for 2 years, 1 or 2 days a week in pharmacy, as a naturopath to enhance my pharmaceutical understanding and knowledge.
I had planned on moving back to Perth once my studies were complete but my life did not lead me that way. Although in 2013 I did spend a year in Perth after the house and clinic were hit by a tornado and had to be rebuilt. During this time I still ran my clinic in Bargara as well as one in Perth. I love that with technology I can now also help people world wide via phone and telehealth.
I am passionate about educating people about natural medicine and naturopathy.
I am also a strongly motivated teacher and believe by helping other Naturopaths and writing I am able to help even more people.
I also own Of The Earth Juice Bar & Health Shop, and Of The Earth Publishing.”

When I saw Rebecca Lang I didnt think i had any major health issues. She did iridology and blood tests and referred me to see my GP with the blood tests. As many issues were picked up and the Dr wanted me on 4 medications. Rebecca asked the dr for 3 months and he agreed. She reversed all my health issues in that time. My dr was very impressed.
Rebecca has been so instrumental in getting my health journey on track and I am feeling better each day. My migraines are decreasing, I am losing weight which is taking pressure off my neck and back injuries and my PTSD symptoms are on a steady decline. I am going from surviving to thriving thanks to Rebecca and the girls and Bagara Health & Healing.
I began seeing Rebecca Lang 8 months ago for skin and digestive problems. With the help of the quality products Rebecca suggested on my first visit and the informative care and testing it has done my body the world of good, im so glad i took the step to begin seeing Rebecca and her very helpful team and will continue to do so.
In November 2018 I completed a two week internship at Bagara Beach Holistic Centre with Rebecca Lang.
During this time I was able to build skills in effectively consulting with clients, conducting testing procedures and how to apply naturopathic principles and support to presenting client conditions.
Rebecca included me in every aspect of the day to day operations of her clinic. I was able to observe and participate in client consultations. I was also able to receive business training and information on how to set up and run my own clinic.
Rebecca was very supportive during my stay in Bagara and made me feel very welcome in the township. She is warm, encouraging and professional. Rebecca also took a personal interest in my development as a naturopath and checks in with me from time to time and offers advice and support with my practice.
I would high recommend the internship program to anyone wanting to start a natural health clinic or looking to further develop their business and practice.
