Understanding you and your health picture takes time. This is why your functional medicine naturopath will deeply investigate your case in a 4-hour consultation.
They’ll explore your diet, lifestyle, genetics and other factors that might be contributing to your health challenges.
Getting better takes time, and we’ll hold your hand until you’re well again.
For six months, you get as many sessions with your practitioner and as much support as you need from your health coach to reach your goals.
Uncovering the root cause (or causes) of your health woes may require comprehensive testing.

At Melbourne Functional Medicine, our functional medicine trained naturopaths will work with you to investigate the root cause of your health condition through a deeply investigative, holistic, and personalised assessment of your health.
In addition to spending time with you asking lots of questions about your lifestyle, symptoms, genetics, health history and more, your naturopath will use a range of clinical tools to identify what factors are contributing to your health concerns, including functional testing using some of the most advanced pathology laboratories in the world.
Combining this information with the best available current evidence, your naturopath will create a plan that’s truly personalised to you.
Addressing your underlying causes and imbalances will often include lifestyle interventions such as diet, changes to your environment, sleep habits and stress management techniques. Your functional medicine naturopath may also prescribe natural medicines and herbs to bring your body back into balance.
If you’ve tried and failed to solve your health condition through other medical means, you’ll understand ‘quick fixes’ don’t often result in long-term health gains. At Melbourne Functional Medicine, our naturopaths dedicate significant time to investigating your concerns and customising a scientifically based, results-focused program to your individual needs.
Rather than just treating your symptoms, our functional medicine trained naturopaths seek to identify and address the root cause of your health concerns, so you can restore balance in your body and get your health back. We help people in Melbourne and across Australia with a range of health issues that are chronic - from skin conditions, to digestive disorders, thyroid imbalances and heart and diabetes conditions such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, atrial fibrillation, high cholesterol and hypotension.

Functional medicine is all about treating you as a whole person, rather than just your symptoms, and understanding your full health picture takes time. This is why your initial consultation will be scheduled for four hours. During this time, your naturopath will ask you lots of questions to get a deeper understanding of your health concerns. In the first half of the session, your naturopath will gather information about both the external (environment) and internal (lifestyle, diet, genetics, stress levels, family history) factors contributing to your health condition. In the second half of the session, your naturopath will start to bring this information together, discussing the patterns they are seeing so far, what your initial plan will be, and answer any questions you have.
Towards the end of your session, you and your naturopath will be joined by your health coach so that you all have a shared understanding of your health plan. This will include discussing the priority next steps such as ordering functional testing or supplements, as well as other aspects of your program that your health coach will support you with.
We pride ourselves on clinical excellence and innovative delivery of functional medicine in Australia and have received over 100 5-star reviews on Google from patients who have improved their health through our signature six month program.
Trained in both functional medicine and naturopathy, our team of naturopaths use the latest scientific insights and clinical tools to comprehensively investigate the root cause and any other factors contributing to your health condition.
In addition to the healthcare you’ll receive from your naturopath, we recognise that most people need support to make changes to their diet and lifestyle - not only overcoming personal barriers, but the ‘how and why’ of such changes. This is why we partner you with a health coach as well, who will help you navigate your path back to feeling well again with more clarity and ease.
This fresh approach to healthcare is unique to our clinic and consistently achieves incredible results. To find out more about what past patients have to say about us, visit our Success Stories page.
