Who Am I?

Melanie has been working as a pharmacist for 22 years. It is through working in both hospital and retail pharmacies around the world that Melanie was motivated to commit to her studies in clinical nutrition. Melanie has seen more and more that her patients are asked to resign themselves to a lower quality of life, simply because there is no more that general medicine can offer for their symptoms. This inspired Melanie to study nutritional medicine, as she knows that a greater sense of health and wellbeing can be achieved through using both pharmaceuticals and natural therapies.

Melanie is committed to helping her patients to discover the best version of themselves. She is fascinated by the human body, and loves to dig deep into the biochemistry and physiology of the body to connect the dots on why her patients are experiencing symptoms, and act as a health detective to find the true root cause. Melanie is most passionate about helping those with genitourinary issues. She loves to help people utilise nutrition and diet to reduce risk of kidney stone reoccurrence and support them through the frustrations and discomfort of recurrent urinary tract and vaginal infections. Through her expertise in pharmacy and nutritional medicine she is able to navigate the best prescriptions in nutrition to accompany any medication regime.
