Optimal Health And Wellness

Focus areas

Functional nutrition Functional medicine Personalised nutrition Nutritional medicine Autoimmune conditions Psoriasis

In her long career as an academic and biomedical researcher, Shelley became slowly disenchanted with Western medicine. She noticed many of her family members and friends became sicker over time because of its focus on treating symptoms only. Taking a “pill for an ill” often comes with adverse side effects and more pills.

After attending a Functional Medicine Conference in the USA, she became passionate about natural lifestyle approaches to health, and a new chapter in her life began. She expanded her post-graduate training to include Human Nutrition, Functional Medicine, DNA profiling, and Nutrigenomics. 

With her expertise in Immunology, Natural Therapies, Nutrition, and Genetics, evidenced by her authorship in over 100 peer-reviewed publications, she can work with you to identify the root cause of your autoimmune disease, allergies, chronic pain, fatigue, or digestive issues.

Shelley offers hourly consultations and wellness packages. Consultations can take place in person, or by Video, phone, or Skype if that is more convenient.

Your comprehensive and personalised health management plan will include a clean diet, natural therapies, and lifestyle interventions to optimise your health.

A second consultation will be scheduled to review your progress, and/or Functional Medicine or genetic profile test results.  Your personalised health management plan will be further optimised based on these results.
