Naturopath & Clinical Nutritionist
Gabriella Sassi, is a qualified Clinical Nutritionist and Naturopath. She has an overwhelming passion to help, inspire and research ways to improve your health using Food and Nutritional Medicine.
A ‘Food as Medicine’ health philosophy has always been a core value of mine from a young age. I loved to stay active as a teen and believe this set the foundations to my health. I naturally turned to nourish and heal my body through nutrition and lifestyle medicine after a knee injury which prevented me from physical activity for a year and accompanied other health challenges.
Understanding the human body from a biochemical perspective with a holistic approach is so important to me in discovering the underlying cause of disease. Functional pathology testing, evidence-based research and treatment methods are foundations in strengthening a person’s journey to wellness. It enables us to individualise a treatment plan using nutritional and herbal medicine, dietary behaviours and lifestyle support and recommendations.
Through clinical practice, I’ve learned that a generic prescription is never useful as each person is so individual in their needs. My motivation is knowing how optimal health is easily available for everyone, given the right tools, guidance and support. Most people have no idea how good their body is designed feel! What I love about my job is seeing the course of people’s health change. It is so authentic to see someone’s health thrive because it infiltrates every aspect of their life, (happiness, fitness goals, relationships, work and more).
Along with my passion for health, I like to stay active and enjoy swimming, hiking, and spending any chance I can outdoors and creating healthy wholesome meals. I love to travel and experience new cultures and food and have a passion for the creative arts and painting.
