John Coleman

Naturopathic Doctor

By August 1995, John Coleman 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 residential programs, 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 and Lyme disease and co-infections.

John now conducts his Naturopathic Clinic in Lancefield, rural Victoria. “Shaky Past” (autobiography) was released in 2012. He presented at the International Parkinson’s Disease Conference in 2001 and the 3rd Tick Borne Diseases Conference in 2015 plus other professional conferences. His next book, “Rethinking Parkinson’s Disease” will be released by Hybrid Publishers in mid-2020.

John received a Tattersall’s Award for founding Very Special Kids in 1985 and is a Fellowship Member of the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association (ANPA).
