Hi, I’m Melissa Smith – a naturopath, nutritional therapist and health coach. I help exhausted people get their energy and mojo back!
There are many reasons why fatigue and exhaustion happen, and it can be hard to pinpoint the root cause to resolve fatigue on your own – especially when they tend to come with a range of other seemingly unconnected symptoms like weight gain and brain fog.
Having struggled with low energy (and eventual burnout) for years, I know how frustrating it feels to wake each day feeling exhausted, and not knowing what to do to get your energy back.

Melissa’s approach is so thorough that she gets to the root cause of a health problem, and treats her clients with respect and kindness.
I came to Melissa with fatigue, anxiety and stress related IBS. I used to sit in a restaurant not knowing what I could eat without pain. My symptoms improved over such a short amount of time. I now have a huge portion of my social life back and an ease to eating, cooking and sharing time with friends and family.
I always felt comfortable telling Melissa anything, even personal things in my life that were causing anxiety. She always dealt with my issues with seriousness and patience, always being professional yet also like a friend. Every session was a pleasure. She always provided me with options and let me try methods and suggestions at my own pace and choice. I’d recommend Melissa as her approach is so thorough that she gets to the root cause of a health problem, and treats her clients with respect and kindness. Thanks Melissa – you’re fab!
My fatigue, asthma and eczema improved within a short period of time. I was so impressed I recommended 3 members of my family to see her.
I went to Melissa not really knowing what to expect, but I was blown away by the consultation and detailed advice she gave me. She spent time to fully understand my individual health needs and gave me targeted advice, taking into account my cultural and religious restrictions.
Melissa’s health plan for me improved my fatigue, asthma, and eczema within a short period of time, and had the pleasant side effect of losing a couple of kilos! I was so impressed I recommended 3 members of my family to see her.
Whenever I feel below par she is the first person I go to.
I first went to see Melissa when I was feeling completely exhausted and just couldn’t seem to pick myself up again. My muscles hurt and I felt low too. Melissa was gentle and thorough in her approach, and I felt really supported at a difficult time. She made sure I understood her recommendations, and I felt immediately that I was in good hands.
Over the next few months, under Melissa’s guidance, I adapted my diet and lifestyle and took the supplements she recommended, and very quickly felt a lot stronger, better rested after sleep and I was happier in myself. What a difference! Whenever I feel below par she is the first person I go to, and she always has something helpful to say!
