Lily (Ngai Tahu) is a GP and clinical director at Turuki Healthcare, a Maori provider in South Auckland’s Mangere. She is the first person from a Kura Kaupapa Maori education background to graduate from Medical School.
Lily is passionate about helping people with metabolic disease turn their health around through the use of food and medicine.
Through her daily clinical work, the free Low Carb High Fat nutrition support group and the “Low Carb Healthy Fanau” Facebook page she created, she empowers people to make simple and long-lasting nutritional and lifestyle changes that set them on a new road to health. Lily wants to spread this message and hopes to see it become the future standard of care for diabetes.
