After graduating as a Medical Herbalist top of her class and with a scholarship in 2011, Melissa Gearing started her successful clinical practice seeing clients one on one. She has since completed further qualifications in Nutritional Medicine and Naturopathy, as well as completed a Bachelor Degree in Health Science, in Complementary Medicine. Mel has also become a new Mum in 2017 and undertaken a Masters degree to finalize her studies.
Releasing her second recipe book in 2017 (The Gut Blueprint), her passion for food is contagious and can make even the simplest cook into a downright foodie. When one on one in the clinic Mel aims to provide sustainable dietary changes where needed, unique to the individual, that align with each person’s desires and goals. Mel works to create plans that suit the lifestyle and the entire family. She is a founding member of the WEA Academy of Complementary Health Alumni and also teaches Herbal Medicine. Current clients will know that Mel often has final year students in her clinic and is passionate about developing and producing high-quality Naturopaths that the community can rely on.
Mel now runs a private practice in the beautiful space at Verve For Life in Newcastle, seeing clients one on one throughout the week. When she is not in the clinic, teaching, writing recipe books, mentoring or kissing her beautiful bub, she can be found working on her other passion with her coach and hubby-Olympic Weightlifting.
She is passionate about prescribing herbal medicine as a tool for fighting illness and imbalance within the body. Mel aims to fuse traditional herbal medicine with current research and evidence. She believes in an integration of herbal and pharmaceutical interventions.
