Melanie’s journey into naturopathic medicine and nutrition began over two decades ago when her mother lost her battle to breast cancer. This epoch moment in her life lead her to study the biological processes of disease and the practice of Naturopathy through the use of herbal and nutritional medicine. Having had lived experience with mental health imbalances encouraged her to conduct further research and study the causative factors of mental health disease and the role that genetics plays. Melanie has worked as a naturopath for the last 18 years in various multi-disciplinary clinics with a particular focus in mental health.
Her extensive experience extends to the interpretation of pathology and many functional health testing including ALCAT, DUTCH, OAT, Mycotoxins, Complete gut microbiome, Neurotransmitter profiles, QEEG brain mapping and genetic testing to further understand the causative factors of disease.
