Optimise Your Lifestyle
At Melbourne Functional Medicine, our experts specialise in providing evidence-based healthcare solutions that optimise your lifestyle and treatments that address your whole health. As part of your treatment with our team, your Health Coach or Naturopath may recommend Paleo Health and/or Primal Health.
Paleo health refers to a diet, lifestyle, and set of principles that encourage us to eat as we did in the Stone Age. Paleo health involves optimising our bodies by using the foods that fuelled us before the development of mass agriculture, and long before the presence of processed food.
More than simply a diet, Paleo health can improve metabolism and blood sugar levels while reducing the prevalence of dangerous fats that circulate in the blood. Ultimately, these improvements could reduce the likelihood of heart attack, strokes, and even early death.
If you’re looking for a specialist in Paleo health, Melbourne residents can talk to the experts at Melbourne Functional Medicine. As part of a holistic, Functional Medicine-led assessment, we may integrate paleo health into your lifestyle.

The Primal Approach
Primal Health Melbourne
Much like the Paleo diet, Primal health focusses on eating the same foods that our ancient ancestors would have consumed. However, Primal health may allow for the greater consumption of coffee, dairy, and certain vegetables, among other things.
Primal health rejects foods such as wheat and corn, as well as baked goods, processed foods, pasteurised milk, and other items. Essentially, if it didn’t exist or it wasn’t possible in ancient times, Primal health will actively discourage it.
A regimen of Primal health in Melbourne may be right for you if you have diabetes, allergies or intolerances, celiac disease or similar conditions, or if you would like to lose weight. Equally, the primal health approach to dieting may help to reset your food intake and diet in general.
To discuss philosophies regarding Primal health, Melbourne patients can talk to Jabe Brown and the team at Melbourne Functional Medicine.
