A little about Monique…
Monique is an accredited and experienced Naturopath and Nutritional medicine practitioner with a strong dedication to helping people restore balance in their lives through therapeutic natural remedies. She has an extensive knowledge in nutritional supplementation, herbal medicines, dietary planning & has a keen interest in preventative health care.
Monique has had the pleasure to train with some of the industrys’ most highly regarded practitioners, from well known complementary medicine doctors to some of the industrys’ most renowned and longest standing Naturopaths.
Monique grew up in a beautiful country town in NSW called Tenterfield (The Birthplace of our Nation) where her family had a beef cattle farm and grew vegetables such as Capsicums, Pumpkins and Cabbages. Many afternoons were spent planting, picking the crops and packing the vegetables for export to the local areas. The small community meant that she developed a strong work ethic and love of people early on.
Monique’s first encounter with natural healthcare happened around 9 years old when she visited the local Naturopath due to unexplained Migraines! Ever since then she has had a keen interest in preventative health.
Qualifications & Training
Monique is University trained & has all relevant insurances. She studied at the Endeavour College of Natural Health (formally known as the Australian College of Natural Medicine) from which she graduated with dual degrees: Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) and Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine). Not only does Monique have hands-on experience from her training with other practitioners, she continually updates her scientific and natural therapy knowledge and skills through external training courses. She is trained in Nutritional Compounding & uses this frequently in her clinic for her patients.
What does a Naturopath do?
A Naturopath is a health professional who has trained at University to learn about the body & how it’s hormones & biochemistry work together. A Naturopath also studies how Vitamins, Minerals, Hormones, Neurotransmitters & Amino Acids make up the the building blocks of our bodies, and how they all interplay together. This means they are particularly equipped to help restore balance in the body using safe and natural medicines along with dietary changes. A Naturopath looks at the body as a whole and not just at the symptoms. They want to know WHY something is happening to you so they can help you regain balance. They use herbal medicines, nutrients, diet changes & amino acids as apart of their toolbox, however the ultimate goal is to get your body balanced again with minimal intervention or assistance from external supports.
What is a Clinical Nutritionist?
Monique is also a Clinical Nutritionist as she works intensively with Nutrients, Amino Acids and Neutraceutical ingredients. She does not do detailed meal planning, rather overall dietary changes to suit your specific health goals. If you wish to have a detailed diet plan written for you, you will be best having an appointment with our Nutritionist Kara, who lives and breathes this!
