Naturopath: Denise Berry

I am passionate about naturopathy and education and work collaboratively with individuals to restore health and vitality. I chose to change career path so I could help others to avoid the pitfalls I suffered due to chronic stress and burn out.

I was born and raised in Melbourne, studied and worked in country Victoria in my early 20s and lived overseas and travelled extensively in my late 20s.  I am excited to be living in Rutherglen with all of the benefits this country lifestyle has to offer.

I am a music nut with a love of all things Americana (alt-country) and in my down time you may see me towing my teardrop caravan to music festivals such as Tamworth and the Gympie Music Muster.

Naturopathic Philosophy

I use evidence-based medicine alongside traditional medicine to treat a variety of conditions. I firmly believe that diet and lifestyle form the foundations, with herbal, nutritional and energetic medicines used to build and restore health and vitality. I am a seeker of knowledge and keep up to date with current evidence to ensure that each patient’s treatment plan is appropriate and most importantly effective. As a wellness coach, I am perfectly positioned to work with each patient to establish individual health goals and develop strategies to ensure they are reached.
