Bachelor of Naturopathy, Diploma in Clinical Nutrition, Diploma in Herbal Medicine
Hey, I'm Melanie. I am a degree qualified Naturopath, Clinical Nutritionist and Medical Herbalist, as well as a wife and mother of two. Motherhood has truly been the biggest ride of my life so far, so many highs and many many lows. Who knew what a total rollercoaster it would be right?
My promise to you is to listen. I will give you my undivided attention, connect up the dots and help you to find a resolution. I believe that deep down we all have the answers and core beliefs lurking in our psyche, we just struggle to see it face to face and need someone to break it down for us.
What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a health modality that looks at the whole person not just the symptoms they are presenting with. By taking a thorough health history a Naturopath can investigate the root cause of health concerns and use a variety of methods to help reclaim ones health. The methods I use are evidence based nutrition, practitioner grade supplements and herbs, essential oils, and lifestyle changes.
Speaking of herbs, did you know that back in the day plant medicine was the only medicine, and it is really really effective. In fact many modern day pharmaceuticals are based on constituents found in plants. I love to use herbs as medicine as they generally have very few (mostly zero!) side effects. I prescribe specific herbs for the individual and they are mostly practitioner only grade, so you know you are getting the best.
What is Post-Natal Depletion?
After giving birth and having the life sucked out of us by our growing baby (or babies!), our body is in a state of depletion. Then coupled with sleep deprivation, breastfeeding and often a very rushed and average diet our body just doesn't get a chance to recover. It is thought that it can take up to 10 years to get back the health we had prior to pregnancy. That is a helluva long time, but we can reduce this dramatically! Depending on what your nutrient status was pre-pregnancy, times can vary as to how long it can take to stop feeling mombie like and start feeling all unicorn and butterflies.
It can be useful to use hormone and/or nutritional status testing to see where you are at, this is something we can discuss at your appointment.
Currently appointments are available on weekdays plus Saturdays and Sundays which I am sure will suit lots of you mamas out there. Plus they are via Skype or FaceTime, so we can still see each other and chat but you don't even have to get out of your PJ's if you don't want to! We will always start with an initial consult of around 1 hour, and then a week later we will have a 1/2 hour follow up to go over your personalised Treatment Plan I will create for you.
I can't wait to work with you and help you feel like you can be the kickass mum you want to be.
Initial Consult + Follow up
60 + 30 minutes
The initial consult is 60 minutes long, and we will discuss your concerns and health history. I will then create a personalised treatment plan for you and we will go through this at our first follow up a week later.
Additional follow ups are 30 minutes long and give us a chance to see where you are at and if we need to make any tweaks to your treatment plan. It is also a chance to bring up anything new.
Kids Consult + Follow up
45 + 30 minutes
The initial consult is 45 minutes long and we will discuss your Child's health history and present health concerns. I will create a personalised treatment plan and we will go through this at our first follow up a week later.
I'm so excited you are ready to invest in yourself. Let's find you an appointment that fits in with your schedule and get you feeling jazzed. Flick me a message with this handy dandy form and I will be in touch.
Once we have scheduled a time for your appointment, payment will be required in advance to confirm your booking. #MumLife is a busy life, if you need to cancel your appointment, please allow 24 hours notice for a full refund or to reschedule.
Sound good? Make sure you book as I only have limited appointments available each week!
What can you expect?
To begin with I will send you a detailed form for you to jot down your current health and health history. The more details you can provide for me to read up before hand, the more we can maximise our chat time over Skype. I will also ask for a food journal covering a few days so that I can see where you are at.
Our first appointment will be around 60 minutes and we will discuss what your health goals are and if you don't have any we can plan some :-) I will then take some time during the week to curate a Treatment Plan that is tailored for you and your needs. We don’t all fit into the same box so I ensure that all the resources I give you will fit your ethos and personality. I shall email this to you and we will have a half hour Skype follow up to discuss it in detail.
Once you give me the OK with what you are keen to try, I will order your supplements and/or herbs and courier them out to you. We can then book in for a further follow up 2-4 weeks later to see how you are getting on. Can't wait to be part of your journey!
