About Kirsten Taylor our chief formulator
 
Kirsten Taylor is a qualified Medical Herbalist, Nutritionist and Naturopath. Kirsten graduated with honors in Naturopathy from Wellpark college of Natural Therapies in 2004.
 
Kirsten began additional natural medicine training prior to graduating after being "head hunted" to work for one of NZ largest nutriceutical suppliers as a technical consultant and clinical educator to practitioners who had already been in clinic for many years! The technical support training and on going understanding of the body's needs at a nutritional and biochemical level was invaluable to her and this meant GREAT results for her private practice clients.
 
Kirsten was in private practice for 7 years and within that time gained an enormous insight into the different ways that we humans really heal.
 
It didn't take long before it became apparent that sleep is the single most IMPORTANT thing that we can and should do every single night to support our bodies to repair and rejuvenate. And so began the journey into developing what Kirsten describes as the most appropriate sleep supporting range on the planet which she aptly named "SleepDrops".
 
From the genesis of the SleepDrops range came the development of our holistic approach in supporting a person for their entire 24 hour circardian rhythm life. Our SleepDrops full Sleep Support System is the only comprehensive sleep and stress management protocol that reflects this imperative approach to adequately taking care of people for a full 24 hours. Sleep is supposed to be occuring for 30% of our 24 hour clock - looked at this way we know we must provide support for the full 24 hours in order to re establish balance and healthy sleep.
 
This website and all the products Kirsten has continued to develop are part of her dedication to supporting people everywhere to sleep better.
 
Kirsten holds regular Sleep/Insomnia Wellness seminars throughout New Zealand and has been invited to teach the Sleep Module of "Therapeutics" at Wellpark college of natural therapies in GreyLynn Auckland.
 
Kirsten is an interesting and inspiring public speaker openly sharing her story of how she took SleepDrops from a prescription only product to being the number one brand in NZ retail stores in less than 5 years. SleepDrops has 3 number one products and its rapid growth and popularity has come with the "to be expected" growing pains which most business owners can relate too.
 
Kirsten is also a member of Entrepreneurs organisation and is a Director of the Board for the Auckland Chamber of Commerce.
