Welcome to
Husk Naturopathy.

Get to the root cause of your skin symptoms, tap into your innate healing power and unlock a new appreciation for yourself and your body.

Areas I Specialise In

Skin Naturopathy

Our integrative and specialised approach to skin symptoms heals, balances and nourishes your whole body rather than targeting only the outer layer of your skin. We offer a holistic inside-out treatment plan to help you achieve clear, radiant and beautiful skin.

Hair Naturopathy

Our natural, evidence-based approach to scalp conditions and hair loss looks at your whole health from a holistic perspective. We offer integrative natural therapies and effective treatments to help you grow strong, shiny and lustrous hair.

Paediatric Skin

Paediatric naturopathy uncovers, treats and heals health issues in children and adolescents. We provide safe, non-toxic and effective therapies to help your child achieve strong and healthy foundations early in life.

Pathology Testing

Without in-depth testing, uncovering and understanding the root cause of underlying illnesses can be difficult. We offer functional and standard pathology assessment through trusted GPs and private labs that help us recognise and treat underlying diseases.

Mentoring & Education

At Husk, we believe in healing, nourishing, and empowering those around us. If you’re looking to improve your knowledge in naturopathy and holistic healing, we offer expert mentoring and education to health practitioners worldwide, who are looking to upskill and make an impact to the lives around them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does telehealth work?

Telehealth consultations are much like in-person appointments but are provided via video call or phone so that you can be treated anywhere worldwide, no matter your location. (Once you book in, you will be sent a confirmation email that contains the Telehealth link to click into at the time of our consult, It is also sent in the reminder email)

Do I need to get blood tests before I see you?

No, we will do a deep dive into your current health concerns through an in-depth intake form. Once this has been assessed we will decide whether blood tests or other pathology tests will be needed to uncover underlying health issues. We will then refer you to one of our trusted GP’s or pathology labs to get your tests.

How long do you think it will take for my skin to heal?

It can vary from person to person. Your body and symptoms are completely unique to you, so there’s no specific time frame on how long it can take. Usually, we tell our clients it can take up to 3-6 months to clear skin, but possibly less to notice and feel a difference in their energy, sleep, digestion and hormonal symptoms). When healing the skin from the inside out, the time it takes depends on the grade and severity, how long you’ve had the condition for and whether there have been any medications used.

Have you had success in treating multiple health conditions before?

Yes, I have success in supporting hundreds of clients to heal their acne, eczema, perioral dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis and support them through topical steroid withdrawal. I work cloesly with all my clients over a long-term period to ensure they’re supported throughout their healing journey.

Do I need to take supplements?

At HUSK we do not believe in giving our clients cookie cutter supplement protocols. Customised, practitioner grade, bioavailable supplements are prescribed after a thorough assessment of your intake form, after taking your case, after careful assessment of general and fucntional pathology and so is evidence based and bespoke to your needs. Supplements are only used for such a time as to get nutrient levels to optimum and then the aim is to let your diet provide all the nutrition you need.

Are you covered by health insurance?

Unfortunately Naturopaths are not covered by private health insurance.

“Mel is a very knowledgeable, caring and generous practitioner. If you need help with skin, gut or stress, she is your woman! 

I first started seeing Mel about five years ago to address my sleeping problems caused by high cortisol levels and a number of lifestyle factors. Mel really listens and found a treatment plan that works for me (and lets me continue with my exercise). I noticed significant improvement after implementing Mel’s care plan and continue to see Mel for support. 

Mel has also supported me through transitioning off the birth control pill. Mel was with me every step of the way and supported me through the process which was daunting for me as I had a history of acne and irregular periods. With Mel’s help, I was able to transition off the pill with minimal side effects. 

I would highly recommend Mel. She’s warm, friendly and really cares about her clients.”
Bonnie – Carlton
“Melissa is real, uplifting and encouraging. The shifts I have already seen in my health in two weeks are attributable in her supportive, non-judgmental manner and really clear guidelines to optimal health.”
“I’ve been lucky enough to have Mel as my naturopath for 2 years and she’s solved a range of skin conditions & hormone imbalances. Mel’s caring nature, along with energy and passion are a joy to work with and our consultations are always uplifting. I feel so very grateful to have found her.”
Stacy - Bright
“My story before meeting Melissa. I had always suffered from gut problems, sleep deprivation and menopause. After meeting Melissa, she has worked patiently with me. I can’t believe I suffered for so long. I was impressed that we got great results very quickly. Melissa has made my journey so effortless; every appointment was with ease and grace. Melissa is very trustworthy, reliable and very easy to talk too. Melissa now helps my clients in my own business and it has been a game changer. Nothing but positive feedback from all my clients. I happily recommend Melissa to absolutely anybody that wants a naturopath with such great knowledge and professionalism.”
Annette – St. Kilda
“Mel completed a thorough analysis of my medical history and contributing lifestyle factors which enabled her to provide me a holistic solution to my skin and hair issues, one I could actually follow in a consistent way over time. Wow!! That alone was a huge uptick for me, the reasoning made sense, felt practical. Mel is just divine as well, a personable Mother Earth. 

The results were incredible and clearly visible, to not only me but everyone around me who commented on how healthy and well I was looking.  At nearly fifty, I never thought I would hear such words again. Thank you so much Mel, for the gigantic boost to not only my skin and hair but my mojo as well.”
