And healthcare was self-help and family help and community help with all that support around them with wisdom from people who didn't necessarily go to college but had the life history and background and experience to say this is what worked.


Dr. John Coleman, ND

I go back to saying, yes, all these things, these diseases were caused by the same processes. They're just a set of symptoms. And so, to change my health, I need to change the processes and I need to change my attitude. Me. I have to do it, not someone in a white coat with a bottle of pills, although they can be useful. But I have to make the changes


Dr. John Coleman, ND

But what people's choices are, are their choice. So, it's fine. And many people we know, are very lazy, they don't want to do research. They don't want to know; they don't want to find out. They want to be told what to do. That's fine. That's their choice.



By August 1995, Dr. John Coleman, ND   was wondering how he could go on living.  Suffering symptoms of stage IV Parkinson’s disease and early-stage Multi-system Atrophy, diagnosed by five medical and complementary practitioners, and severely dissatisfied with the treatment and prognosis he received from western medical practitioners, John decided to pursue other pathways to health and was completely symptom-free by April 1998.

John was co-founder of Very Special Kids in 1984 and founder of the neuro recovery foundation in 2002, conducted sixteen Neuro Recovery Pathways programs in NSW and Melbourne, plus practitioner training around Australia, USA, Germany, Austria and UK.

John is one of Australia’s most experienced naturopaths in treating Neurodegenerative and Autoimmune disorders, plus Lyme disease and co-infections, utilizing a wide variety of strategies to improve health together with specific neuroregenerative strategies plus antimicrobial & detox herbal remedies as required.

John now conducts his Naturopathic Clinic in Lancefield, rural Victoria.  His book, “Rethinking Parkinson’s Disease – the definitive guide to the known causes of Parkinson’s disease and proven reversal strategies”, was released by Hybrid Publishers in 2020. “Shaky Past” autobiography  was released in 2012. He presented at the International Parkinson’s Disease Conference in 2001, two posters at the 1st Tick Borne Diseases Conference in 2013 and two case histories at the 3rd Tick Borne Diseases Conference in 2015.

John received a Tattersall’s Award for work with VSK in 1985 and an ANPA award for Community Education in 2005. He was a finalist in the Pride of Australia Medal in 2007.

Core purpose/passion: Empowering people to find their own way to wellness; finding the fundamental causes of an illness process; changing social attitudes from find a cure to, find out how to get well.
