Meet Cassandra

I am a passionate Naturopath and Nutritionist from the Mornington Peninsula, where I grew up sharing my family’s love of nature and herbal medicine.

As a child, I recall gathering herbs such as nettle (Urtica dioica), dandelion (Taraxicum oficinale), red clover (Trifolium pretense) and lemonbalm (Melissa officinalis) and preparing remedies for ourselves and our racehorses.

I have a keen interest in detoxification, healthy ageing and disease prevention. I believe that we can all be the best we can be via supporting of our own healing potential. Natural medicine in many cases, may reduce the need for prescription medications such as antibiotics and antidepressants, and may also support replenishment after their long-term use.

I absolutely love helping clients to achieve optimal health with herbal and nutritional medicine and I’m continually developing my skills and knowledge through research and attending seminars covering areas such as cardiovascular disease management and prevention, detoxification and diabetes management.

I have a background as a Chef, working in various restaurants, including my own, which is where I developed my passion for nutrition and ‘food as medicine’. I enjoy developing therapeutic recipes, and helping my clients and those around me to live a healthier happier lifestyle.

My career has allowed me to travel and gain life experience, which has led me to be where I am today. I love spending time in nature, with my family and friends, riding motorbikes and being around animals.
