About us


Back to Basics Healthcare Practice, based in the beautiful city of Nelspruit, is a private practice focussed on Primary Healthcare and Nutrition.

Promoting health and wellness, is at the core of the practice, as is education about prevailing health problems and how to prevent and control them. 

Sr Sarita Vermaak is a dedicated Professional Nurse with a passion for health and wellness. She defines wellness as an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

"Wellness ... a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
- The World Health Organization

Irrespective of a person’s age, size, shape or perceived attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work.

Good nutrition is an integral part of being healthy and has a direct impact on your quality of life. Nastasha Vermaak, BCom graduate and Nutritionist, believes firmly that in a variety of foods, there is protection.

"The reason for this is that humans have a strong tendency to allow our diets to be dictated by our taste buds. We tend to eat the same things over and over again, which, with our weakened systems, often leads to a food allergy or intolerance. Variety gives our bodies the best opportunity to select what it needs for repair of cells and maintenance of good health." - Dr AF Beddoe.

These are both strong, independent and driven women who are passionate about their respective roles in the practice and will go out of their way to make their clients feel cherished and worthy of the best possible treatment outcome.
