Are you looking for a Functional Medicine Naturopath near you in Port Melbourne? Melbourne Functional Medicine specialises in digestive conditions (particularly IBS), skin conditions, thyroid and women’s health; providing holistic solutions that address both your symptoms and the cause of your problems.
Our Naturopaths are trained in Functional Medicine, a comprehensive, investigative model of healthcare to solve your chronic health issues for good.
While Naturopathy and Functional Medicine are sometimes considered alternative or supplementary treatments, the team at Melbourne Functional Medicine pride themselves on providing evidence-based answers that make sense for your health concerns.
In fact, Functional Medicine employs a holistic, all-encompassing approach that truly considers the whole body, rather than just one set of symptoms. We have built a health care program that will provide a comprehensive investigation of your health concerns and give you all the support you need to get better. Take a look at our 6-month program below:
In this initial consultation your Functional Medicine Naturopath will spend time listening to you and gathering information about you and your medical history.
They will use this information to help identify the root cause and factors contributing to your health concerns, including triggers such as stress, your environment, poor nutrition, your microbiome and other factors.
It takes time to implement a personalised Functional Medicine treatment plan.
That’s why we have designed a program that offers you uncapped access to your practitioner for 6 months as well as regular support from your health coach to help you get the results you set out to achieve.
Your practitioner may identify at your initial consult that more comprehensive testing is required to identify any hidden causes of your health concerns.
You will have access to advanced testing for a range of factors (genetics, nutrient status, pathogens, hormones and more) through the world’s best pathology labs.

If you have tried to solve your health issues using a conventional approach, you understand that ‘quick fixes’ often don’t lead to lasting results. Which is why our consultations are structured a little differently. For people in Port Melbourne, our naturopaths dedicate a significant amount of time to investigating your concerns and customising a scientifically based, results-focused program. During our six month program you will have access to as many sessions with your naturopath as you need and uncapped access to a dedicated health coach to help you get your health back.
When you sign up to our program, we'll book your initial consultation with your naturopath at a time that works for you. From there on, you'll be able to access our patient Bookings portal to book any future appointments with your naturopath or health coach. Once you have followed the prompts to book your appointment you’ll receive a confirmation email and text message, as well as reminders so you never miss an appointment.

Functional Medicine is a deeply investigative approach that aims to understand and resolve the root cause of a health condition. In order to get a comprehensive understanding of your health concerns, your naturopath will spend four hours with you for your initial appointment. During the first half of your session your naturopath will ask you to share information about your diet, family history, genetics, lifestyle, sleep and other factors that may be contributing to your health condition. This information will help your naturopath to pull the pieces of your health puzzle together.
In the second half of your consultation, your naturopath will start to pull together any insights into your health picture, discuss your treatment plan and any further testing that may be required, and you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions. Your health coach will join you and your naturopath towards the end of the session to get a shared understanding of your treatment plan and how they can best support you.
At Melbourne Functional Medicine we do healthcare differently. Our naturopaths are trained in functional medicine, an approach that seeks to identify and address the root causes of your health issues. We use the latest scientific research, tools (such as functional pathology testing) and insights to treat and prevent chronic disease, as well as giving personalised care to each patient to achieve real solutions.
Rather than suppressing symptoms or managing conditions, our naturopaths will take the time to understand a your health history, as well as environmental and lifestyle factors, and support them with an individualised treatment plan (because each of us is unique, which is why a one size fits all approach to healthcare doesn’t work).
We understand that it can take time to turn your health around which is why, in addition to your sessions with your naturopath, we partner you with a health coach to keep you motivated and on track to create lasting improvements in your health.
