Our Naturopaths in Albert Park aim to identify the root cause of your symptoms and provide you with evidence-based natural treatment to improve your health. As well as being practicing Naturopaths, our practitioners are trained in Functional Medicine, enabling them to adopt a highly personalised and integrated approach to your health concerns that seeks to address the underlying causes of disease, rather than just treating an isolated set of symptoms.
Functional Medicine is a comprehensive, scientific and person-centred approach to health that aims to understand the whole person rather than isolated systems of the body. The Naturopaths at Melbourne Functional Medicine near Albert Park will seek to identify and understand any root causes or factors that may be contributing to your health concerns. We have built a 6-month program using this integrative approach to help you reach your health goals. Here’s what’s included:
It takes time to get to know you and explore and understand your whole health picture. This is why your functional medicine naturopath will spend 4 hours with you investigating a range of factors that could be contributing to your health condition. They will start to build a profile of factors such as your genetics, diet, lifestyle, environment and others.
As you work towards your health goals, your practitioner and your personal health coach will work with you for six months to give you all the support you need to get better. You will have as many sessions with your practitioner and your health coach as you need to get well again, for the program duration.
Your practitioner may recommend comprehensive testing to help uncover the root cause (or causes) of your health concerns. We have access to the world's best pathology labs and can test for a range of factors such as pathogens, hormones, genetics, nutrient status and more.

There are many similarities between naturopathy and functional medicine, with one main distinction being that training in naturopathy, and the modalities practiced within naturopathy, can vary greatly, leading to inconsistency in the quality of practice, and outcome for patients.
While some naturopaths will treat with non-evidence-based techniques, our functional medicine naturopaths only employ those validated by science, so you don’t have to take anything on faith. In addition to the above, rather than being a modality, functional medicine is a methodology. It’s a way of approaching healthcare in a deeply investigative way, using the most current health understandings and assessments to truly solve a person’s health issues rather than manage them.
Like in Naturopathy, functional medicine practitioners recognise that illness is largely caused by diet, lifestyle and the environment, so our functional medicine naturopaths focus largely on addressing these factors in their treatment plans.
So when it comes to sourcing an expert in Naturopathy in Melbourne, you can trust our functional medicine naturopaths. They’ll give you the clarity you need on your health through investigation so you can be well again.
