The Meaning of Aumakua
The word Aumakua comes from Hawaiian mythology and means Ancestral Guardian Spirit. The Aumakuas are known to be advisors and healers that protect the ‘ohana’ (family). We named the clinic Aumakua Integrated Wellness Clinic out of respect for the elders of Naturopathic Medicine, as our medicine originates from a long line of ancestral traditional healers. They have passed down their knowledge and wisdom pertaining to healing, with the medicinal properties of nature and the restoration of an individual’s vitality. Today we can use the technological advances of the present in conjunction with the knowledge of the past to help you find your way in Complete Mind Body Health.
