Hi. I'm Mel.
I was very healthy until my early 20’s and then was sick with Mono/Glandular Fever and just could not shake off the flu like symptoms and fatigue for over a year. Looking back I now realize I could have recovered a whole lot sooner if I had taken more of a multi prong approach.
Over the years I started learning more about what the body needs to stay strong. I became a Holistic Nutritionist since I began to appreciate how your mind affects your body and your body affects your mind. From there I wanted to delve even deeper and learn things from a more scientific level and thus started exploring the use of functional medicine lab tests and became an Integrative Health Practitioner.
The body can and does break down, sometimes, seemingly overnight, but that really isn’t the case. As the body starts to become imbalanced, there are tell tale signs that may not appear on conventional medical tests because the results might not be hugely out of range, but it is the ACCUMULATION of all these factors that start to wear down the body; inadequate nutrition, lack of exercise, poor sleep habits, toxicities and emotional issues eventually catch up with you and it’s not just happening to the middle aged or elderly. Children are becoming sicker and sicker - incidents of ADD, diabetes, autoimmune issues, obesity, depression and anxiety are all on the rise and the only way of correcting these issues are by addressing the underlying root causes, remove any toxicities and refuel our bodies so that we can live a life worth living.
My goal is to work with you with your very best interests at heart. I will design an individualized health program based on your needs, requests and biology.
Yours in good health,
