Whole Vitality was established by Alison Patchett, a Mt Waverley-based degree qualified naturopath specialising in gut issues and maternal health. Her experience with persistent headaches that the GP couldn’t explain in her teens sparked an early interest in holistic health.
After a career in IT, Alison’s enduring fascination with the impact of diet, lifestyle, and nutrient deficiencies on the body led her to complete a four-year Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) degree at the Southern School of Health Sciences. She immersed herself in study, achieving great results, while raising a family and working part-time.
Alison continues to deepen her knowledge in her main focus areas; the gut-microbiome, hormones, stress and postnatal depression and anxiety.
