Irene was born in Southern Hungary in 1937 to a farming family, (her father a farmer and her mother a city girl), they grew Wheat, Rye, Oats, Barley, Vegetables of many varieties, Herbs and had many different Animals.
Irene had an interest in the healing properties of plants from a very young age. She later graduated with honours from a special Higher Education College as an accountant and method engineer and became a savings bank branch manager at the young age of nineteen (19).
Having been successful in the world of business, becoming a Senior Personnel Manager in Telecom (Telstra) in Australia, she never knew that her early childhood interest in herbs and plants would one day become a full time successful career, she went back to school at the age of 42years to study Acupuncture and Natural therapies in her new country (Australia where she moved to in 1957 as a refugee with her then husband).
She studied alongside her son Tibor for many years actually becoming the dux of the Acupuncture class by having the highest scores of Distinction level! She then went on to study herbal medicine (both western and eastern), Iridology, Bowen Technique, Remedial Therapies, Nutrition, and Flower Remedies.
Together with her son Tibor was instrumental in establishing the ‘Natural Healing Centre Blacktown’ in 1982 where they both still help people on a daily basis using a multitude of therapies, the most popular being Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
Her son Tibor also had an evening college for 21 years teaching Remedial Therapies (now closed since 2006), in which Irene taught Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, and Flower Remedies for a number of years. Irene holds many diplomas and certificates in a varied number of modalities.
Irene has health fund rebates for Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Bowen Technique and Remedial Massage.
Irene has also just released her first self-help book on herbs available from her practice and this website, a number of health products are still under development and will be available in the near future.
