The Melbourne Functional Medicine Team

As your practitioner, I put the power back in YOUR hands.

…and that’s exactly what I will do with you!

Jabe Brown – BHSc(Nat), MSc(Nut & Fx-Med), BComm, AFMCP – is the principal Naturopath and Functional Medicine Practitioner at Melbourne Functional Medicine.

Jabe believes that healthcare should be evidence and results based, and focused on addressing the most underlying issues. To this aim Jabe works by taking a very thorough case, inclusive of the latest available testing techniques. He has a particular interest in treating Adrenal Fatigue, Stress, and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and digestive conditions, both diagnosed, and undiagnosed.

“I believe that we are a combination of the things we eat and the way we live. I expect to be able to help someone…. there is ALWAYS an answer! I expect to be able to help people get answers where they previously haven’t. This is normally when they finally truly understand their own health picture enough to influence their own behaviours. I’m a puzzle solver.”

With a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, and ongoing training through The Institute for Functional Medicine, Jabe stays at the forefront of the most recent health research, and is passionate about sharing this information and empowering his patients, in clinic and through the health podcasts he hosts: Vitality Hackers.

In my consultations, I make sure my patients gain a clarity of understanding about their health, so that the mystery and frustration disappears.

Principal Functional Medicine Practitioner

At the age of 33 Bee was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, an autoimmune disease, which sparked a real passion in Bee to start a journey of investigation and recovery. She realised she had been living with sub-optimal health her whole life. Having lived gluten free for 10 years now, she has made it her mission to uncover the real truth about regaining optimal health.

Living ‘gluten free’ is often not enough when managing auto immunity and so Bee studied clinical nutrition, holistic lifestyle coaching and personal training to enhance her understanding of the workings of the (modern) human body. She also published “Happy Gluten Free Kids” as a support tool for parents whose children are navigating a gluten free world.

“When you understand what it feels like to thrive and you understand your body’s feedback (both subtle and obvious) you are in a truly empowered position to make optimal decisions. Living a healthy life is not about deprivation but it is about being honest with yourself about what works and what doesn’t. I love to focus on the way healthy living makes you feel and the very practical ‘how to’ factors.”

Bee is a passionate Mum who gets an enormous sense of joy and fulfilment from helping others attain their best health.
