Jaine Kirtley's Thoughts

I am strongly anti-discrimination in any form, I do do not want to see the 2 tier divide which the government wants to become a reality in this country. 

So I will not be disclosing my jab status.

I fully support personal choice in healthcare.

Human knowledge evolves over time. If we are fortunate as a society, we remember past observations and decide not to repeat actions which were detrimental, and we keep doing the things that helped society.

Science is not an end point. It is a process of continuous observation and reflection. Scientific knowledge evolves over time. The scientific knowledge on the “jab” is evolving.


Now, in 2021, the decision to have a “jab” or to not have a “jab” is based on incomplete scientific knowledge. Why incomplete? Because “time” is a crucial part of any scientific research.


We simply have not had the time factor to complete the vast body of research we need to make a fully informed decision.


In New Zealand today people who choose not to have the “jab” are being discriminated. The government wants a “two tier” society. Kind, caring people are losing this week jobs including Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, Social Workers, Teachers, and many others. These are not stupid people.


These are people who care about health and welfare. Their decision is just different to the government decision.


I stand strong with my Nursing colleagues, and many of us with decades of experience, who oppose mandatory jabs.


I always done my upmost not to place a strain on health services and hospitals and I continue to do so.


I have never supported any form of discrimination and have no intension of supporting or colluding with discrimination now.

Naturopathy and Integrative Medical Centres

Interview on Central TV with Janelle Burnside about Naturopaths at Integrative Medical Centres
New Zealand Society of Naturopaths Media Release 22nd March 2010

Naturopathy and Integrative Medical Centres
Jaine Kirtley PR Spokesperson for the NZ Socity of Naturopaths

The NZ Society of Naturopaths applauds the use of integrative medical centres where the public can access care from a range of specialists under one roof. This has a great potential for truly client centred care. The real focus of complementary medicine is the client. The health services need to provide for all the client needs to be at optimum health. This means they may use the services of a GP alongside the care of a Registered Naturopath if that means that gives them the best chance to regain health. The NZ Society of Naturopaths already has registered naturopaths working in integrative care clinics. The high level of training and competency of Naturopaths registered with the NZSN has been crucial to their effectiveness in working alongside other disciplines for the benefit of health service users.
