Conditions We Treat


We are qualified naturopaths passionate in empowering women to overcome their health concerns and achieve wellbeing through a range of therapies.

Our approach is gentle and restorative whilst utilizing breakthrough functional testing to provide real outcomes. Your optimum health is our core business, and we take that extremely seriously.

Natural medicine is differentiated from conventional medicine by its strong philosophical foundation which includes the belief in the healing power of nature – vis medicatrix naturae. As naturopaths we place emphasis on clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, and lifestyle, combined with sound knowledge of health sciences.

Naturopathy recognizes that all living forms possess a self-regulatory ability for healing. We treat the whole person (tolle totum), as naturopathic principles are based on treating the individual rather than the disease. No one condition will be treated the same, as the cause of the condition will vary from person to person.

We isolate the cause of the complaint and often utilize functional testing to provide insight as to how the body is out of balance. We provide a method of re-balancing the body, and work closely with you to restore your health through tailor-made treatment plans for complete wellness. And most importantly, as naturopaths we take an educational approach to patient health – we won’t just sell you a range of supplements that have no real outcome for you.

Our appointments are convenient – over the phone or skype – or in person at our clinic in Melbourne.

Our clients are constantly running from task to task, experience poor sleep, not enough time in the day to accomplish what is needed, and feel some sense irritability, perpetual stress, and overwhelm.

Many women don’t realize that hormonal imbalance can cause them to feel badly and continue to live with the dysfunction, not realizing that these symptoms need not be a normal part of life.

There’s often not one isolated reason for a problem, which is why naturopaths use a combination of functional testing and lifestyle inquiry to determine the cause(s) of dysfunction.

Every woman is unique. Nutrition, herbal medicines, supplementation including critical precursors, and lifestyle changes may be implemented as part of your treatment plan.
