Following an early career in finance and financial accounting, Isaac changed career paths to natural medicine and has been a homoeopathic practitioner since 1984, and teaching since 1988. He founded the Australasian College of Hahnemannian Homoeopathy in 1990, which offers distance education courses in homoeopathic and natural medicine. Isaac is a regular contributor to local and international academic journals, and is the author of eleven books on homoeopathy and over 100 articles.


He has lectured in 9 countries. He is a world authority on homoeoprophylaxis – the use of homoeopathic medicines for specific infectious disease prevention – and was the first person to be awarded a PhD from a mainstream Australian University for research on a homoeopathic topic. He has undertaken immunisation research in Cuba and India in conjunction with Government authorities in those countries. In April 2016 he was invited by the government Department of AYUSH to visit India to advise on planned Dengue Fever immunisation programs in Delhi and Kerala State involving millions of people.


He worked in a range of positions with Endeavour College of Natural Health, including Head of School and Business Manager Academic until 2012.

Isaac was President of the Victorian branch of the Australian Homoeopathic Association – Australia’s largest national organization of professional homoeopaths – from 1992 to 1998. In March 1999 he was awarded the Association’s Distinguished Service Award for his “many years of service to the Australian Homoeopathic Association and for his significant contributions to the homoeopathic profession in Australia”.


Isaac’s research interests are built on a belief that Australians need to be shown the substantial evidence base of natural medicines and see how safe and cost-effective they can be. His own work relates mainly to showing the effectiveness of homeopathic medicines for both treatment and disease prevention. He believes that the health system in Australia needs to be changed from the present disease management system to a health creation system.

Marg Winning: Queensland State Secretary

Marg Winning: Queensland State Secretary

My parents were hardworking Queensland farmers, my happy childhood was mostly spent living and working on a farm and selling fresh produce.
During my working life prior to children I worked at a printery, signwriting shop, graphic arts studio and newspaper house. I married in my mid-twenties and when pregnant with my first child I became a member of the Nursing Mothers’ Association. Soon after joining, I trained becoming a councillor, providing weekly meetings, offering support and information to mothers in the local area.
My maternal instincts were strong, I considered everything to do with my babies health, happiness and development. Breastfeeding was very important to me as I have been an asthmatic since a young child. I was determined to make sure each of my children had healthy immunity, so I am proud to say I breastfed each of my children for up to two years, a total of ten years, and no asthma.
As my children started kindergarten and school I then became involved as a classroom helper. I joined the Parents’ Association and School Council, taking on different committee roles including Fete coordinator and at one point, President.
Life was very busy with five children, at one stage, I had one at High School, two at Primary School, one at kindy and a baby at home, ‘mums taxi’ was always on the go.
I have a great love of art and craft including graphic design. Over the following years I developed my skills and took a number of night Tafe courses. I started a small home business, making and selling craft, graphic design, desktop publishing and printing service. Being able to stay at home until all my children went to school was really important to me.
My involvement as a volunteer led to employment, where I worked in admin and produced the weekly school newsletter. Later, at our children’s high school I became the schools photographer, marketing and promotions person and also produced the annual year book.
I have always had an interest in natural remedies, healthy living and all things creative/artistic, and have shared these with my children.
I am a self taught graphic designer, a mother of five, I’ve been a parent for 27+ years and I understand many of the challenges that parents face.
I am keen to ensure the Australian Government respects and listens to the people. That our rights are not eroded by laws that are mandated, because this goes against our fundamental human rights. Every Australian must have the freedom to choose, to stand for each individuals rights, so we can truly be a democratic and prosperous nation.
Our planet is our one and only home, mother earth has provided everything we need and our children are the future. I’ve joined the Health Australia Party because they stand for the health of our environment, the health of our people and the health of our future. Support us, so we can support you.

A small group of determined and like-minded people can change the course of history. Mahatma Gandhi

Emily Wallis - WA State Secretary

Emily Wallis

Emily Wallis, is a bookkeeper, trained as a veterinary nurse, and is passionate about issues including health, animal welfare, pollution of soil, air and water including our oceans. She grew up on a small farm where her father had a true ‘free range’ poultry farm. In the 60’s caged farming was introduced, unfortunately her father could not compete and he sold his farm soon after. Ironically, the system has done a complete turn-around, back to the original approach of free range/pastured poultry farming as it is more ethical.

The increased medication, risk of disease outbreaks and prepared food (often containing GMO grains) fed to the chickens together with the confined living space is not healthy for the chickens or for us.

A key interest of Emily’s is her concern about the introduction of genetically engineered (GE) or genetically manipulated (GM) foods coming into and being grown in Australia. She volunteers for the GM-Free Australia Alliance, with a focus on the need for full and comprehensive labelling of all GM ingredients in all our food products.

In support of Healthy People, Emily believes that everybody has a right to choose an allopathic or a more natural approach to medical interventions, and citizens must be allowed to choose without discrimination. This includes ensuring that our drinking water is free from unnecessary additives and supporting the use of medicinal cannabis.

As a small business owner herself, Emily understands that small businesses are vital institutions providing much of the employment in Australia, and they must be encouraged and supported with a fair tax system.

In addition, Emily supports resource conservation through non‑polluting renewable energies, supporting our indigenous people through a holistic approach to their health care and the protection of whistle‑blowers to expose any corruption in the corporate industry and political arena.

Emily fully supports all of the five pillars of the Health Australia Party; Healthy People, Healthy Economy, Healthy Environment, Healthy Democracy and a Healthy Society to help deal with the issues facing our Australian community.
