Our unique model to healthcare ensures that you receive full support to address the imbalances in your body.

How do I book in for a naturopath consultation in Malvern?

What can I expect during my initial consultation with Melbourne Functional Medicine?

Understanding your unique concerns takes time. Rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach, the naturopaths at Melbourne Functional Medicine treat every patient as a unique and complex system. For this reason, your initial consultation will take place over four hours to give your naturopath the opportunity to deeply investigate any root causes or factors contributing to your health concerns. In the first part of your consultation. Your naturopath will ask you questions about your health history, lifestyle, diet, genetics, family history, stress, sleep and other factors that may be contributing to your health issues. In the second part of your consultation, your naturopath will share what they have uncovered about your health puzzle and work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan. This will also be an opportunity for you to get clarity on your next steps and to ask any questions.

Towards the end of your consultation, your naturopath will invite your health coach to join you so the three of you have a shared understanding of your health plan and a clear strategy for moving forward. Your health coach will also answer any questions you may have about the aspects of the program they will support you with.
