Melissa Lewis

NATUROPATH

BH.Sc. Naturopathy

Melissa started her self-healing journey back in 2012 after having her second ‘unexplained’ ectopic pregnancy and both of her fallopian tubes removed. She began to question her medical diagnosis of ‘unexplained’ when there was clearly an underlying health issue/imbalance. She was further challenged with fertility complications which led her to IVF for two of her three children. In addition to requiring IVF, she was further diagnosed with Adenomyosis. She was offered medication to minimise Adenomyosis growth and increase fertility outcomes, however feeling hesitant she opted out and began seeing a Naturopath to support her fertility and wellness journey.

With the support of her Naturopath, she was able to minimise her Adenomyosis naturally and conceive both her children through IVF without additional medication. Experiencing first-hand the power of nutritional and herbal medicines across her own fertility journey led her to follow her passion and complete a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy with Distinction (BHSc.Nat).

​Five years later, and ready to leap into practice, the universe had a different plan, and she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (BC), 2 months after her 40thbirthday. After much contemplation, she decided to follow the advice of her medical oncologist and underwent conventional treatment but also complemented her journey with her natural health knowledge and expertise.

​Today, she is cancer-free and a true advocate for supporting women’s health and wellness. While she will never have a definitive answer as to what led her to the path of BC, looking back her years of hormonal imbalances from an early teen were certainly a contributing factor.

She offers her clients a truly integrative approach to naturopathic medicine, by incorporating modern scientific advances, ancient traditions, and holistic wellness. Her treatment strategies are based on providing her clients with the education and resources to achieve their wellness goals. She believes in a collaborative and client-empowered model of naturopathic medicine and together will create an individualised plan to guide you back to health.

In addition to holding a Bachelor of Health Science Naturopathy, she has also completed a Bachelor of Arts, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology, and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training Certification.
