Who Am I

Hello there, my name is Mel. I am a qualified Naturopath (BHSc) and meditation facilitator. I graduated from my Naturopathy degree in August 2020. I now run my own clinic out from Refresh Yoga studio in Clarkson.

Studying Naturopathy jump-started my own journey of healing and self-discovery. Before I started studying, I had chronic gut issues. I remember being at a point where I just had no idea what to eat anymore, because I wasn’t sure what I was reacting to, or what was “good” or “bad” for my gut because there’s so much information out there and quite a lot of misinformation. It can be really overwhelming and disheartening. I got to learn about the science behind how our body functions from the cellular, tissue, organ, and systemic level, how dis-ease occurs, about food and nutrition and the role it plays in our body, the art and science of herbal medicine, how our environment impacts us, and so much more. And of course, approaching it all from a holistic perspective, understanding that nothing occurs in separation. For me, it was not just an issue with my gut and what I was eating. My nervous system and emotions were also involved. It was from approaching my health holistically with the wisdom and education I gained that really helped me to take ownership of my own health and wellbeing and help restore harmony.

Meditation Facilitation

I am also a qualified Meditation Facilitator. I felt to do the Meditation Facilitator training to deepen my own practice and understanding, but also as something to provide for my clients. I believe meditation or at least some sort of meditative or reflective practice is an important part of healing. One of the best ways to truly know who you are and all that you are is through meditation.
