Dr. Murray Clarke

DNM., D.Hom., L.Ac.
Founder + President

Dr. Murray Clarke, the developer of ChildLife Essentials®, holds licenses and doctorates in three fields of medicine: naturopathic medicine, homeopathic medicine and Chinese medicine (including acupuncture and herbology).

He moved to the United States from New Zealand 35 years ago and has since become a pioneer in the field of holistic pediatrics.

He blends a number of medical modalities including homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine and clinical nutrition to help patients with hard-to-treat conditions. He has become the “go-to” doctor for pediatricians whose standard pharmaceutical approaches haven’t been successful.

Dr. Murray Clarke continues to focus his experience, treatments and quest for knowledge on how to treat and prevent childhood illness at its root cause.
