Empowering Women To Feel Well Again
Hi, I’m Alex. It’s great to have you here.
My journey in natural medicine started twenty years ago after attending a nutrition conference in London. At the time I had a list of health problems that my doctors wouldn’t acknowledge, so I started to search for alternative ways of healing. Ten years later, natural medicine had helped me so much I left my career in financial markets to make a career out of it.
Since graduating in 2012 I worn many hats in my industry. I have consulted other practitioners on natural medicines, sat as a Director on the board at the Australian traditional Medicine Society (ATMS), run the ATMS education program (for fellow practitioners) and continued with my private clinic – the latter two which I continue with today.
My approach is grounded in the principles of naturopathic and functional medicine. I believe to get well, your body and your life has to be addressed as a whole. I also believe the body knows how to be well on its own when it’s alleviated from stress and put in the right environment. But the body’s organs and systems often need a kick start too – which is where the use of functional foods and natural medicines come in.
I also believe that to get well you need a bit of a support team. Which is why I work extensively with medical doctors and allied health professionals. I am all for whatever works to get you feeling better faster.
In a consultation I assess not just what you eat, but also how your organ function, external environment, toxic load, lifestyle habits, exercise regimes and mental wellbeing may be affecting your overall health. Using a holistic approach and naturopathic assessment tools, I provide you with tailored treatment plans based on easily understood concepts from the latest medical research.
Alongside hormonal and gut health, my personal experience with Endometriosis has given me a unique clinical perspective on the disease, and a special interest in helping women recover from it. Natural medicines may not be the cure for Endometriosis (and other diseases), but they can drastically alleviate your symptoms and give you some of your life back.
Thank you to all of my clients so far that have entrusted me with your stories of Endo, period problems, gut issues and hormone dysfunction. I dedicate my Be Better blogs on this website to you!

If I had a team of health helpers Alex would be #1
If I had a team of health helpers Alex would be #1. I booked in to see Alex 12 months ago for some nutritional guidance. I am a woman in my 50’s who loves the outdoor and especially to cycle. I am healthy and eat a balanced diet but was suffering from stomach discomfort and lack of energy.
Alex is an expert in her field who listens and truly cares. She is responsive, helpful, totally inspirational and I loved her balanced approach. 11/10!
