The following are not so much testimonials, as Case Studies so you can get an idea of how we work.

These case studies are from real patients (names changed to protect identity) to demonstrate the way we work so you can be confident we are the right fit for you.

Michaela

Michaela came to us because she was suffering from psoriasis and it was having a significant impact on the way she was living her life. Being in her early 30’s, socialising was a big (and important) part of Michaela’s life. Going to music festivals was her outlet and most of her social interactions included drinking alcohol.

Michaela had been living with the psoriasis since she was a teenager and was already able to identify that there were some things that directly impacted her psoriasis, like stress, sun, salt and alcohol. This was great awareness, and important information.

Taking the time to really explore a patient’s history is critical for us. Because we believe that every body can –with the right conditions– heal, we need to really figure out what has been going on, and why. This is where Michaela was so great; she knew she was sensitive to chemicals because whenever she walked down the cleaning aisle, she sneezed. Her skin was sensitive to personal care products, and she got shocking hangovers. Together, this told us that her ability to detoxify was a point of concern, so straight away we had some good information about where to pay attention (the liver and other elimination channels).

Being suspicious of gluten for her, we also put her on a gluten free diet. After a month we hadn’t seen a significant change. With inflammation being a primary target, functional medicine practitioner Jabe recommended Michaela start an Auto Immune Protocol (AIP). This is one of the more intensive food protocols but is incredibly powerful when wanting to find out the role food is playing when it comes to immune interactions and inflammation. Giving up booze was tricky, as it really was the cornerstone of social life, but with Health Coach Bee, they came up with some strategies around how to navigate those social times as well as staying crystal clear about why she was doing it (big picture goals).

Once Michaela had spent some time doing AIP, it was clear that food was indeed causing an inflammatory response (expressing through her skin). After a couple of months there was a noticeable improvement in her skin, but it had not completely resolved. We dug a little deeper with a Food Inflammation Test and it turns out pumpkin and spinach were causing problems for her. This was powerful information as we weren’t likely to guess that that these were foods to be avoided!

 

Michaela’s skin improved further, and we learned that in addition to pumpkin and spinach, she had problems with legumes, and grains in general, but otherwise didn’t need to be as strict as AIP.

Although we were supporting her liver, and now had absolute values on which foods were showing up as inflammatory, the most significant piece to Michaela’s puzzle was stress. Working in a high stress industry, we needed to help her develop skills and habits that would support her body. Michaela leaned-in to daily journaling and gratitude, as well as building a robust meditative practice. She started walking to work so that she had some ‘empty brain’ time and worked with her Health Coach, Bee, to come up with some affirmations, which helped her navigate moments of anxiety.

During a particularly busy and stressful period over Christmas (after working with her health team for 11 months), where work was requiring longer hours, parents were visiting from overseas and she was given a leadership role at work, she told us that she noticed she wasn’t as stressed as she would previously have been. Hooray! She had taken the time to build those habits to the degree that they simply became part of her everyday routine – like brushing her teeth. As those neural pathways strengthen, so too does the physiological response, which is why, when stress pressed down on her, she displayed more resilience.

At last report, Michaela’s skin is great. She has maintained her meditative practice, eats well (the way her body likes it), and she has clarity around her thresholds for stress – and what to do about it.

 

Samantha

When Samantha came into our clinic 2 years ago, she immediately burst into tears. Health Coach Bee sat and comforted her and could see that there was a lot of pain in Sam’s world. She was deeply emotional, crying many times a day, feeling out of control of her emotions, exhausted, out of rhythm, “just coping”. Like many of us, Sam attempted to ‘pull herself together’, but Bee recommended that in her session with Practitioner Jabe, she let it out all – be as honest as she felt safe to be. And to her credit she did.

Sam’s main presenting concern was fatigue. During the initial consult with Jabe, it became clear that her thyroid and sex hormones were out of whack along with some digestive issues. A conscientious mum of two, Sam had always worked hard and put her kids first. She is an incredibly devoted mum and wife (and friend) and consistently put others ahead of herself.

The primary focus for Sam, in order for her body to want to come back to a healthy state, was to spend more time in the Parasympathetic (rest, digest, reproduce and repair). Previously, as someone who took her phone to bed, we encouraged Sam to establish a healthy bedtime routine whereby she took off her makeup, cleaned up the kitchen (this gave her peace) and make the last hour or so before bed completely relaxing. It’s called sleep hygiene. Also, please leave your phone in the kitchen and don’t take it to the bedroom!

Ever conscientious, Sam started to implement the lifestyle strategies her team recommended.

She responded well to the introduction of the Auto Immune Protocol and the feedback was positive in a short amount of time. She told us she was still tired, but not fatigued, had no more brain fog, no more muscle aches and almost no pain with her period. Whilst it may seem like quite a simple fix, there was still some work to be done.

Sam came off the Oral Contraceptive Pill, took some supportive supplements and continued to work on her approach to life – specifically the ability to let go and put herself first (as Jabe said “Well done in prioritising yourself. Keep at it! You are worth it :-)“)

And Sam was making progress, but not without frustration – there was a time, about 9 months in, when Sam had antibody testing and it showed an increase. She had periods of increased stress which meant it was more difficult for her to stick with her new behaviours and confessed to snacking on a well-known ‘glass and a half’ chocolate brand. She had a flare up after a family member had an accident, which resulted in serious acute stress on Sam. Gently coming back on track, she soon found her rhythm again, reframed her stress and sent through a heart-filled message showing outstanding antibody and thyroid results. The body wants to heal – we need to give it the right environment.

During the healing process, Sam started to uncover the real her – the woman she hadn’t previously had access to when so busy helping other people. She told Bee “I’m still emotional, but that’s who I am. I cry for things now but it’s not the same. I even tell the kids about some of my experiences”. She found her niche, her menstrual cycle regulated, her energy stabilised and she told Health Coach Bee “The greatest gift I was ever given was 4-7-8” (a breathing technique we encourage our patients to employ). She understood that stress was one of her greatest triggers, that this had a downstream effect on her wellbeing, and that she now has a robust spiritual practice that keeps her well. She told Bee “My biggest thing is that I have the tools. It is my responsibility to instil them.”

We worked closely with Sam and her GP to make sure we were tracking her sex and thyroid hormones and making any necessary adjustments. Sam’s willingness to reassess who she is, meant that her progress was ongoing and her health continued to trend in a positive direction. Her energy improved such that she no longer experiences fatigue and is intimately aware of her upper levels of exertion. Her monthly cycles have settled into a stable rhythm and she finds herself setting healthy boundaries in her life as well as having deeper emotional connections with her loved ones.

 

Tony

When Tony first came to us, his diet was pretty ‘clean’ (he followed a Paleo template) and he described his primary concerns as a lack of energy and a history of gut problems. He had lived in the tropics previously and had blastocystis, dientoemeba and had also been exposed to mould. He was so fatigued, in fact, that he had quit his job because he simply couldn’t function.

By the time he came in, Tony was ready to do anything. He was so sick of being sick. Jabe asked him to really focus on recharging the body as we continued to get clarity around his picture.

It was established in the four-hour initial consult that it would be important to address all key elements of life with Tony, including sleep, diet, stress management and support with supplements. Practitioner Jabe directed him to some apps to help introduce Tony to meditation, as well as some podcasts that would help Tony access some concepts of philosophy and take some of his attention away from such a strong health focus (because attention is good, but too much attention can become detrimental).

Simultaneously, Tony saw a jaw specialist who was treating him for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) issues, in order to lessen his headaches and improve sinus issues.

We wanted to encourage Tony to change the way he interacted with his world. He told us that he had always gone at lightning speed, had always been spontaneous and whenever, in his recovery journey, he saw times of improved energy, his inclination was to go go go! Recommending that someone change how they think, react and move through their world is a very long game. It was clear that Tony was invested in the change process.

Two months into working with Tony, with regular meditation, plenty of rest and a refined supplement prescription, he had a period of rapid improvement. In fact, he told us it was the best month he had had in a long time. He decided that he didn’t have a need for close coaching and felt confident that he could ‘go it alone’. During this time, Tony was excited and so let some of the foundation behaviours slip. He stopped meditating and let his yoga practice go as well as significantly increasing his social commitments.

Shortly after, when chatting with Health Coach Bee, he recognised that the few things that had slipped had, in fact, made a real impact on his recovery progress. He had started taking on more events socially, and he told Bee “I’m disappointed with myself for going back to old behaviour”. This is the very nature of human behaviour. There can be a strong drive away from a pain; the motivation is clear – to not be in pain. As that pain begins to resolve, we revert back to who we are (or were). Conceptually, it’s why shake diets so often leave people gaining more weight – they are not taught how to behave in a new way (in this case, healthy cooking/eating). Bee and Tony chatted about the benefits of creating a meditation practice – one in which he became present more frequently (strengthening those neural pathways) and then in the future, when his energy is consistently better, he is more likely to make appropriate choices about how he spends his energy.

Several supplements had a significant impact on Tony’s energy and sense of wellbeing. On writing this case story, testing is still underway to understand what underlies the fatigue. We’re looking at both mould and heavy metals, but we’re happy to report we have an engaged patient who is open to settling into a new way of being. He is self aware and has already seen great improvements to his wellbeing.

 

 

Joanne

Joanne came to Melbourne Functional Medicine with a goodie bag of health worries. She was chronically fatigued and struggled to push through her training commitments, she had bloating, anxiety and sleeping problems. Joanne felt wound up and under energised.

In working with Jabe they were able to identify a number of important lifestyle choices that were compounding her symptoms. Jabe prescribed a specific nutrition protocol to address her underlying digestive issues and to support her energy levels. Bee came on to support Joanne in a health coaching role and developed a tailored meal plan for Joanne with recipes, a shopping list and had a number of phone conversations with Joanne to ensure she understood the protocol and felt confident.

Within two weeks Joanne reported (excitedly) that by eating more regularly and making congruent food choices her energy levels had skyrocketed.

Her training had improved and her friends and family were all commenting on her elevated energy and attitude.

Her bloating had also resolved. When talking with Bee she seemed most excited by the absence of anxiety.

This alone can be a taxing and socially alienating experience so to overcome this so quickly was valuable.

 

John

At MFM we’ve worked hard to overcome any possible roadblocks for patients. Part of this solution involves an app that we ask patients to join us on so we can monitor their nutrition, hydration, movement, sleep and other critical trackers. Not only do we get to see how you’re tracking, we can seamlessly communicate with each other as an extra (and very efficient) channel of support. John (not his real name) came to see Jabe as he’s in training to participate in a marathon and he needed some guidance around energy metabolism, athletic programming and nutrition to support him in his training. He said this about the support he receives through the Nudge app

“…it’s great – pretty sure it got me started back, not sure I would have without it. It’s not the app that gets me, it’s the app, combined with knowing who is at the other end of it, plus having an appointment booked for another catch up – those three together keep me really honest – cheers”.

Daniel

When Daniel first came to us, the bathroom was the one room in the house he dreaded. With a history of gut issues that he’d had no resolution from, he was determined to get to the bottom of things. After running some labs to determine just what was going on we incorporated supplements and asked Daniel to experiment with some foods. He saw improvement in bloating, mood, energy and digestion.

There was a significant turning point for Daniel. Talking with Bee one day, he was recounting that he still was experiencing reflux, sugar cravings after meals and his bowels weren’t moving the way he hoped they would. She set a micro challenge: for one week, eat mindfully. Remove all tech and reading materials, taste each mouthful, chew thoroughly, put your fork down between mouthfuls. A phone call followup the next week saw him very excited as his bowel movements were now his idea of perfect, the cravings had subsided and he had no more reflux. Together, Daniel and Bee celebrated the simplicity of this one element.

 

 

 

Adam

Things are not always as they appear. That has certainly been the case with Adam, who came to us 9 months ago with chronic fatigue syndrome. He displayed a degree of anxiety (especially around taking supplements) and was not enjoying life.

We took a gentle approach to working with Adam, understanding that the process of unravelling underlying cause can be a process. We asked if he was comfortable if his partner added a simple supplement (magnesium) to his smoothie on some days and not on others – a placebo experiment, if you will. This was a rapid-fire way to show him that his body could tolerate this supplement. That was a key point in his treatment plan – understanding that his beliefs weren’t always his physical truth.

He has been amazing to work with and has always been willing and come with an open mind. Adam and Bee had weekly conversations and have discovered, after many hours of discussion, that what was driving his exhaustion was fear and anxiety. It was literally exhausting him.

Adam recently commented that when he came to see us, he thought he would only see Jabe and not really invest with Bee. The opposite has turned out to be true, with a hearty, honest and respectful relationship developed over time. Most exciting is how Adam now moves through his world – with a new understanding of what was driving his fatigue. He is almost a new version of himself.

“Bee I am having some amazing breakthroughs with exercise
I’m fully present with it
I believe in myself I’ll be fine after it
I get my heart rate up intentionally which I was always scared off
And after it my anxiety wasn’t there cause I was in the present the whole time ”.

We look forward to continuing to explore Adam’s beliefs and how they play out in his physical world. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and we’re so proud of him.

Tanya

Tanya came to us with some gut and joint pain issues with a focus on optimising her health. What we discovered quite quickly, was that learning lifestyle skills has turned out to be valuable for Tanya. She sought advice about healthy snacks, how to eat well (the actual act of eating), and how to move well.

We learnt that Tanya had bowel variability – she tended towards constipation, couldn’t go to the bathroom when staying away from home, was tired, had painful periods and her bowels became loose around period time. She is a hard-working business owner and being well is important for her. In a session with Bee, she identified that health, inner peace and mindfulness were amongst her highest values.

The process with Tanya has been a series of mini experiments and she has learnt an awful lot about her body. She now has a clear understanding of what food her body likes and doesn’t – those experiments have been absolute. She knows when she needs to slow down. With ongoing variability in the bathroom, Jabe asked Tanya to carve out time to just sit – don’t rush this. Making this particular adjustment has seen Tanya’s entire bowel-moving experience change. She now goes, easily, every day. She recently reported that she’d gone away and had success going to the bathroom there!

“I did two poos yesterday – I was so excited.”

We celebrate all the wins 🙂

My experience with Jabe and Bee have been excellent. They are well researched and offer the most tailored and nourishing support. They are also supportive every step of the way and and go above and beyond to ensure your health program is working for you with the highest results. I would highly recommend paying them a visit!

I have been struggling with ill health for the last few years, and have tried working with quite a few health professionals with no luck and no real support till I started seeing Jabe. In the three months since working with him, my overall health has improved greatly, including better energy levels, better eating habits, much better digestion and feeling much better informed and supported to make much better lifestyle decisions around stress management. His explanations are accessible and show considerable passion for addressing health holistically. He talks with you to find manageable and sustainable solutions aimed at long term health and well being. And he has a great sense of humour! I highly recommend him to anyone seeking holistic health and wellbeing support.

This is a bit long...but I want to tell it…read it if you have been sick for a long time and just aren’t getting any better! I had been seeking treatment for some time before I met with Jabe. The onset of my illness coincided with working with lead paint and I had come down with a debilitating headache which continued day and night. Even now, I’m not sure if paints and chemicals were the factor to kick off the illness, but the symptoms were real: continuous head pain and loss of a good deal of mental acuity (brain fog).Finally, a neurologist read the condition as 'New Daily Persistent Headache' (an auto-immune illness). The prescribed medications made things worse and he advised me to discontinue them. The condition returned and the brain fog deepened. I did my own research - a lot of research. I found out about evidence-based functional approaches which link auto-immune illnesses to deficiencies in nutrition, genetic dispositions and to environmental factors. 'Functional medicine' has momentum in the US, but there are still comparatively few practitioners in Australia. After two months of following Jabe's program of supplements and advice, I am now free of the headaches and the brain fog has lifted. I feel very grateful to Jabe for his competence but also for his genuine interest in understanding all aspects of my health. In my case, his approach was not just to prescribe supplements but to set daily actions which involve you in supporting your own recovery. This is my kind of program! A lesson? Find a skilled naturopath like Jabe, commit yourself to getting better and maintain your health with informed guidance. Do these things, and there's a good chance recovery will be yours.

I have been working closely with Bee on resolving a lifetime of health issues. After finding out I have an intolerance to a number of food groups including gluten and dairy, Bee has coached and guided me into improving just about everything in my life. I am now symptom free, my skin is glowing, I have lost a bunch of weight and I have gained a new outlook on the importance of staying healthy... I HIGHLY recommend 🙂

Rheumatoid Arthritis? Crohn's? Deteriorating health? Fatigue? Having battled with these illnesses all my teenage years, I sought help from every doctor possible. I wish I had have found Jabe sooner. After being convinced to go see him (very apprehensively at first, I admit) it turned out to be the turning point in my life. Thanks to Jabe, I live a relatively pain free life, but most importantly, he has empowered me with the ability and knowledge of how to control and manage my illnesses. Stop considering, and make an appointment today!

I came to see Jabe and Bee 3 months ago about my chronic fatigue. I have had CFS for 6+ years and have seen many specialist's but no one as persistent and eager to help me as them. My first appointment with Jabe i knew he was going to be great and i was in good hands. He is so knowledgeable and i 100% believe with his holistic approach.It is a massive relief to no longer have to battle this alone. Going through health changes is overwhelming to say the least but working with Jabe and Bee i do not feel like this at all. I speak to Bee weekly and because of this guidance i am seeing daily improvements with all aspects of my life. Bee is an amazing coach and a genuine caring person and every time we talk I uncover something new about myself. I am not where i want to be yet but i can confidently say i am on the right path with these 2 amazing people helping me every step of the way.Brendan

Jabe is one incredible naturopath!! If you want to get down to the root and cause of your illness or disease and get it treated instead of just masking the symptoms, then i highly reccomend you give him a visit. His knowledge and wisdom is second to none. Coupled with his kindness, great personality and he is also funny and makes you feel comfortable. He is patient and makes sure to address all you are there to talk about. You will get the complete package!! Thanks Jabe for all your help with my health concerns 🙂

Jabe brown understands how the body works and incorporates lifestyle changes amongst other treatments to improve your health. If you have tried western medicine and have not seen improvements then I highly recommend seeking Jabe's expertise. Bee who is the health coach will help you with incorporating these lifestyle changes Jabe has recommend by strategizing and supporting you while making you feel somewhat accountable when you don't follow through with things which is the extra push you need to permanently make a change for the better.

I have suffered with psoriasis for years and after a big flare up I turned to Jabe for help after reading good things about him online. Jabe is very methodical and logical in his approach and helped me to put the pieces of the puzzle together to figure out my personal triggers for this complicated disorder. Bee, the health coach was also a big help for support and accountability. It took a while but finally my skin has been completely clear for around 4 or 5 months and even though psoriasis is chronic and impossible to cure, I feel like I am more equipped to knowing how to clear it up or prevent big flare ups thanks to Jabe and Bee. Highly recommend!!

I started seeing Jabe very late in 2017 for a high cholesterol issue and a desire to change my lifestyle to prevent Alzheimer's disease (in my family). Jabe is very thorough and he is not cheap. However he did find some issues that many GPs had missed or dismissed. The result was after 4 months of following his plan I had lowered my cholesterol from 8.1 to 6.1. My GP was amazed that I had achieved this through diet and excercise alone. I highly recommend Jabe if you have health issues.

Jabe & his team at Melbourne Functional Medicine are simply AMAZING. Having seen many healthcare practitioners over the years in attempts to get to the bottom of my issues, no one has ever delivered in the way Jabe has. Firstly, I have never seen a structured health care program like the one Jabe has designed. The very focus of Jabe & his team is YOU & all that makes you wonderfully unique, Jabe works collaboratively with you to custom design a plan, to create a framework & provides a solid foundation of support that sets you up for success from the very beginning. If your intention is to truly heal - Jabe & Bee are definitely two people you want in your corner. I have honestly in the 10 years I have spent trying to understand what was going on in my body, never encountered a health practitioner with Jabe's level of expertise (& believe me - I have seen many) the amount of readily available knowledge that this man has in his field is mind blowing, coupled with an approach that is genuine, offering an authentic high level of care, this is a program where you matter - from my first appointment I felt heard & seen in all of my concerns & was not only impressed but also comforted by the way Jabe took his time to methodically unpack all that I shared & began to join the dots.... Jabe & Bee create a space that see your wins genuinely celebrated, while you are also held & supported through your challenges. I have only been working with Jabe two months & I have followed his direction unequivocally & I am now reaping the rewards in more ways than I could have ever thought possible. You won't get stuck on swings & roundabouts here, just a superhighway to a happier healthier you. I cannot recommend Jabe highly enough! It is absolutely worth the investment...

I have been working on my gut health, managing anxiety and overall wellbeing with Jabe and Bee for 2 months now. The improvements I have seen in the way I feel have been amazing. I am less fatigued, feel more in control of my anxiety and starting to see big improvements in my gut health. I would highly recommend a visit to see Jabe and Bee if you are in need of a long term lifestyle change!

Over the past couple of years I noticed health issues that were creeping in including weight gain and signs of chronic stress. Tried different things without seeing results and I also knew that going to a GP would not provide me with the holistic approach to achieve a life changing, healthy mind, body and spirit. This was the main reason we decided to see Jabe and Bee. It's definitely a process and it's not a pill. It's about having the right tools to explore and address the underlying issues that will improve health. Jabe is so experienced with these types of issues and he knows what work needs to be done to address health problems. Time spent with Bee provided the clearing needed to address those underlying emotional issues in a different light. Together they are an incredible team. Thanks so much for everything you have done for me and also for my hubby.

Jabe is fantastic. I had ongoing issues with gut health and associated symptoms for a number of years. With Jabe's guidance and direction I have seen dramatic and what appear to be at this stage long lasting improvements.The important thing from my perspective was that Jabe was always focused on getting to the bottom of the issue; going through symptoms methodically; plotting out various courses of treatment; and providing providing contingeices in case certain approaches didn't work. This gave me confidence to continue sticking to the advice and plans. I never felt it wouldn't work.Jabe is consultative and takes time to understand your history, underlying issues, and practical ways of achieving long-term (and hopefully permanent) results.It is a two way street, so you need to be willing to actually do what you've agreed to with Jabe. But it is worth it in the long run.You may also find treatment more expensive compared with, say, seeing a GP and taking conventional medicine. But, again, it makes long run financial sense to resolve underlying issues rather than repeatedly treating symptoms possible for the rest of your life.Couldn't recommend highly enough. If you've had long term health issues that aren't getting better through conventional treatment it is well worth your time, effort, and money to see Jabe!Daniel Wild

I have been seeing Jabe with regularity for some years now and he has had a profound impact on my health and wellbeing. His understanding of functional medicine is unparalleled - I am consistently floored by the breadth and depth of his knowledge on all matters 'human'. I have learnt much from our rambling discussions over the journey. I cannot recommend Jabe (and his team) highly enough.

I can't think of any private doctor who charges $1998 for a consult and for the opportunity of selling supplements to you. The closest I can think of is a plastic surgeon or a maxillofacial surgeon who might charge oop $500 for a consult (or you can get that for free on the public system). I'm wracking my brains trying to think what a naturopath has to offer for $1998 that an evidence-based doctor doesn't and honestly all I can think of is a tonne of placebo and the opportunity to take advantage of vulnerable populations with IBS/chronic fatigue/undiagnosed anxiety/exhausting lifestyles. Gotta love capitalism I guess.

Highly recommended! I saw Jabe and Bee for about 8 months. Jabe offered and provided me with knowledge, assessments and interventions that helped me finally understand and manage health issues that I have struggled to deal with for more than 15 years. Bee gave me support, guidance, validation and warmth to make the changes meaningful. I am still benefiting from their knowledge and support 9 months on. Thanks Jabe and Bee
