Dr. Richard Liebmann, ND began his journey to health and wellness in his early 20’s living in Israel. He returned to the United States to attend the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Richard graduated with high honors in 1977 and for the next two years worked at the college teaching and in the administration. In 1979 Richard moved to the big island of Hawaii and opened the Hawaii Family Health Clinic. After his work in the clinic Richard began integrating his experience practicing Naturopathic Medicine into expanded arenas. For over 25 years Richard and his wife Natalie have been leading groups in health and adventure based experiences in Hawaii, Italy and Patagonia. In 1996 Richard became the first executive director of United Plant Savers, a non profit organization dedicated to medicinal plant conservation.
For the past 10 years Richard has been focused on creating Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. With the help of his two children he built the sanctuary center, designed the gardens and landscaped 10 acres with over 250 different species of plants and trees.
For Richard, Lokahi Garden Sanctuary is the culmination of over 35 years experience in guiding people on their journey to health and wellness. Dr. Liebmann honors this process and recognizes that each person’s journey is unique. He is grateful for the opportunity to share on a deep level with others.
