Kristy Wallace is a hardworking accounts manager and a dedicated mother of two, her daughter is a registered nurse working within the public health system unfortunately she has seen first-hand some of the devasting and lasting health effects caused by the pandemic. Kristy has a big heart and caring nature; she resonates with many of her fellow Victorian’s who’ve grieved and suffered from losing their loved ones. Kristy has a vested interest in improving our public health system as well as the current unseemly environments, working conditions, and sub-standards our health professionals are operating under. Kristy is especially interested in supporting the future Victorian Government to adopt a different framework. Which involves transitioning from the current ‘disease focused’ model of healthcare to working towards a more progressive ‘health creation’ system suitable for all walks of life.
I am incredibly passionate about freedom of choice over your own health and a big believer in century proven traditional medicines and practices, applying good lifestyle choices including healthy food adoptions, exercise and meditation. We also need much greater community support and trauma counselling for mental health and a greater understanding that how we fuel our bodies, also has a definite impact on our mental state.
I have studied much around cell biology, physiology, medicines and human nature for over 30 years, and although I don’t have a degree, these subjects are my passion. I have also studied Virology and many different papers on Immunisations, Vaccines and have researched their MSDS’s.
I am from a very large family of healthy individuals and am incredibly passionate about parents having a choice regarding the health of their child and being well informed as to adverse effects and contraindications of vaccines and medicines, that are being readily promoted.
I have worked in many sectors of business, have been Chair for an NGO, Ambassador for National Homeless Collective and for the last 25 years have worked in the Construction Industry running manufacturing plants and Advisor to the Industry Committee. Over the last 10 years I have remained General Manager of a large manufacturing organization.
I am deeply critical of the mandates over the last 2 years which led to a huge increase in mental health disorders, depression, suicide and domestic violence, just to name a few. The resulting division between vaccinated or unvaccinated was unscientific and unnecessary, promoted by a media frenzied fear that rushed a product to the market prematurely and without the usual controls.

Kate is an enthusiastic natural health practitioner who is passionate about empowering clients to learn to manage their own health and that of their family. Through Kate’s own chronic health issues, which opened her eyes to a system of health that did not offer any other options than pharmaceutic medicaiton. Eventually she found natural therapies and never looked back.
Currently the system does not support those who want to make their own choices about their health and wellbeing. Rather it offers one form of medicine which should not be the case in a true democracy. We allow for consumer choices in so many other industries but health is not one of these. There needs to be a voice for natural therapies so to be able to support the best in health and wellbeing for all.

Kellie Thomas is a single hardworking mother of four children. She is interested in truth, justice, and equality when it comes to her family’s mental health and wellbeing. Her top priorities centre around fixing our broken mental health system for young people in Victoria. She knows of many young families who have suffered and continue to suffer from anxiety and depression due our current State Governments appalling lack of care and consideration towards young people particularly throughout the pandemic. She is running to fight for all families who are suffering from what she believes was nothing but Government overreach during the pandemic.
Mark Lambrick has been an advocate of alternative medicine for four decades. As an alternative health practitioner, he views the current health crises as a product of a narrowed perspective of life.
Mark would like to see self empowerment become a central feature of our health care system. This comes through self education and life experience being valued in addition to having a kitchen stocked with the bountiful goodness nature provides us. Our food sources and a return to home cooking is an essential part of rebuilding our health and taking back control.
Invariably an environment of health experts and evidence-based practice can increase people’s anxieties and uncertainty in trusting their own instincts with regards to their health.

Dr Isaac Golden
Isaac co-founded the Health Australia Party in July 2015 with 5 colleagues. A major intention was to protect Australians’ freedom to choose the type of healthcare they wanted, given the growing attacks on natural medicine, its practitioners, as well as integrative doctors who wanted freedom to practice as they felt best for each patient.
The loss of truth and freedom in medicine was demonstrated during Covid, and having a balanced, centre Party which understands what is really needed to restore truth in medicine is needed now more than ever.
And health is needed not only for people, but in our environment, our economy, our society and especially in our democracy. Australia has changed in the last 3 years, and not for the better, hence our keywords for this election are – Freedom, Prosperity, Health.
All Australians should enjoy freedom, prosperity and health, not just a privileged few, and this is what the Health Australia Party is dedicated to restore, starting in Victoria in 2022.
Leiah Golden is a passionate advocate in all areas of health and wellbeing. As an allied health practitioner and owner of a busy natural medicine clinic, she can see the urgency in the need to change the government’s current medical model. Moving away from a from a system that only manages disease, to a more feasible health creation system which takes a preventative approach in reducing chronic disease through adequate nutrition & exercise, mental health support, natural medicine and allied therapies. Leiah realizes that without the voice of an allied health practitioner in parliament, this simple initiative and a healthier country for her children to grow up in will not be achievable.

Health and wellness are my main passions in life. If it means we can be living a life full of vibrancy, calmness and happiness I am all for it. I strongly believe that each person has something special to offer the community through being our best selves.
I have been teaching health and wellness since 1991 though my martial arts studios and personal training studios that I have operated. I have served the public as a Secondary School teacher for 16 years and I have seen the positive effects of great schools as well as areas that I can see that need improvement.
Our children are our future, and I am out there ensuring I am doing everything in my power to provide for the community as well as my own family. As a family with 7 children we were deeply affected financially through Covid however with my health intact I was able to still provide for all of us through the love of family.
If I was elected in office for the Health Australia Party I would be ensuring our community continues to provide great opportunities for kids in local communities. Lifting the health of our children I will be able to ensure a better life for all families.
Happy families are healthy families.
Angelica has a great understanding of the importance of health and wellbeing after not just battling but surviving cancer in 2021.
The first-hand experience Angelica faced through this life changing disease made her fully aware of the limitations our current medical system. While orthodox medicine was extremely important in her treatment and recovery she also experienced the great value and wealth of resources available within the integrative heath system and the incredible benefits this provides in both managing and preventing illness. Through her personal experience, Angelica has come to understand the importance of education around integrative health and how this needs to be a massive focus to help people suffering all illness.
Angelica also values freedom of choice when it comes to how we manage our health along with being provided all options and information in order to be able to make an informed decision.

Karen has been a Naturopath and Homeopath for 36 years with a keen passion for Natural Therapies, facilitating and empowering people to take care of their health and emotional wellbeing. She runs a busy practice using traditional Naturopathic therapies and principles but also less traditional like Laser and Bioresonance. She is a mother of 2 and a grandmother with a heartfelt desire to ensure that all of us have and continue to have the right to choose our own healthcare, with “informed” choice. Mandatory vaccinations and lockdowns have taken away our freedom and left a profound ripple effect on us physically, mentally, spiritually. Having an alternative voice in parliament can be a beacon of balance in these times. Without the preservation of our true innate Freedoms, we are simply living a limited, unauthentic, less-than life.
Emma has a Master’s Degree in Counselling and a Postgraduate Degree in Family Violence. For the past 10 years Emma has been dedicated in supporting people involved in the criminal justice system and their families.
Emma experienced a severe reaction to a tetanus vaccine when she was 22-years-old. This reaction resulted in her developing chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Prior to receiving the tetanus vaccine, she was very fit and healthy and enjoyed participating in a variety of sports. The conventional medical system did not provide her with many treatment options, so she turned to natural medicine to build up the strength in her body again. After this experience, she has integrated natural medicine into her and her family's lifestyle to support health and wellbeing.
Emma believes there is a place for conventional medicine, but that there is just as much need for natural medicine. People need freedom of choice about what goes into their bodies without coercion or threats or discrimination. Emma acknowledges and values diversity and people’s differences and believes that everyone should have the right to make informed decisions about their bodies.
