Melanie has always been a nurturer; whether it was raising two daughters, or during her 22 years as a child care provider. Fostering an emotionally supportive, intellectually stimulating and nutritionally nourishing environment has consistently been at the centre of Melanie’s life.

After seeking help from her doctor for what he deemed “normal, age-related symptoms”, Melanie was unsatisfied with that explanation and began questioning conventional paradigms. She soon sought the advice of an alternative health practitioner. Armed with new insights into pathogenic interferences and previously unrecognized food sensitivities Melanie was able to begin taking control of her own health. In a short time, she saw tangible improvements in those “age-related” symptoms. Her health and attitude were more vibrant than ever and she would never look back!

She spent years reading and learning all she could, until coming to what now seems an obvious conclusion: to take this passion and knowledge to the next level she would need to return to school.

Melanie did just that graduating from The Institute of Holistic Nutrition with First Class Honours. She has also trained in Energy Medicine, Iridology and Electro-dermal Screening, providing herself with a variety of tools and the knowledge to help her clients along the path to optimal health!
