The Naturopathic Approach to Weight Loss

Welcome to a new and personalised approach to attaining your ideal weight, health and vitality!

Here at Melbourne Wellness, it’s not about a one size fits all approach. We are all individuals with unique bodies, metabolisms, hormones, stresses, families and lifestyles. It doesn’t make sense to have one weight loss program for everyone.

Here at Melbourne Wellness, we work one-on-one with you, to ensure that we uncover the underlying causes which hinder your weight loss and work hand in hand to support you in achieving and sustaining your ideal weight, allowing you to live a life full of energy and vitality.

Our Clinical Nutritionist and Naturopaths will design a comprehensive practical naturopathic weight loss program specifically for you. This program will support you in attaining your ideal healthy weight. See how an individually tailored plan is right for you!

A weight loss program that’s right for you

There are thousands of fad diets out there in the market place, companies which promise you instant weight loss, others which make you count every calorie you consume and others which make you purchase pre-made food. All of these fail to do ONE thing which is most important: ensure that the program they are providing you is tailored to your individual health.

They also don’t provide you with the information, knowledge, and skills to help you to understand your own body or educate and support you in making life long changes to ensure you reach your healthy weight and maintain it.

Our naturopaths focus on working one-on-one to assess your current position not only in regards to weight but also your overall health and to uncover any potential underlying factors which may be hindering you from losing weight and/or keeping it off.

In your initial one-hour consultation, our naturopaths will take a detailed case history, clarifying your diet, current health and lifestyle, stresses, family and work commitments, your sleeping patterns and various other factors which impact on your body’s ability to metabolize foods and maintain a healthy weight.

The information gained from the initial consultation will clarify the priorities regarding your health, shaping the treatment plan formulated for you. As part of treatment, diagnostic testing may be required if further clarification is necessary or if there is a potential imbalance which needs to be resolved. Issues such as thyroid, hormone or sugar imbalances may require investigation to ensure these are addressed.

Your customised naturopathy diet

Working closely with you to ensure it is “doable”, our naturopaths will formulate a specific treatment plan including dietary changes, potential lifestyle changes, nutritional supplementation, recipes and cooking information.

Our naturopaths utilise a number of different tools to tailor a program for you. 

We have different options which cater to the super busy, stressed individual who doesn’t have time to change their whole life or diet, to programs that cater to people who have time and energy to commit to a holistic life changing program, focusing on education and support to create life-long positive dietary and health changes. You’ll also be provided with access to online resources, extensive dietary support, recipes, healthy food lists, clear instructions regarding portion sizes, allowable foods and online motivational tools.

This is a comprehensive, practical and individually tailored solution to help you get on track NOW to lose weight and get healthy, vital and full of life.


Recently I finished an intense 12 week package with Lina Nutritionist and Naturopath from Vital Chi Wellness . I can honestly say that it has changed my life, I lost 13kg in just over 12 weeks! After years of struggling with my weight and low self-esteem I have managed to break life long habits and with Lina's help understand what works for me. With Lina's advice and guidance I have been able to plan my meals, keep a track of what I'm eating, try new recipes and substitute food so I don't feel like I'm missing out! Lina is so caring and supportive, she is able to connect with you on such a personal level. She looks at you as a whole person and takes everything into consideration when addressing your nutritional needs! My weekly visits were key to me to sticking the program. This approach had been the key for me. Lina has unlocked a part of me that had been shut for many years, a belief in myself that I can do this and these changes are just the beginning of leading the life I want and achieving the things I dream of. I cannot stop now, I am ready to do another 12 weeks so I can lose another 13kg! Nothing can stop me now!
