``We’re here to support your journey to optimal health, so that you can live your best life``

At Whole Naturopathy we know that you want to have the energy and long-term health to live your best life. In order to do that, you need the support and practical advice to make the best choices. The problem is that there’s just so much advice out there and it’s hard to know which is the right advice for you. This can make you feel confused at the best of times and like a failure at worst. We believe that everyone can experience good health if they are given the right tools. We understand that many people feel sidelined or to blame in some way, which is why we treat your health issues with understanding, up to date knowledge, and quality products.


Here’s how to do it: book an appointment, or if you would rather: sign up for our 6 week Nutritional Weight Loss Course. In the meantime, download our 15 Ways to Beat Sugar Cravings, so you can stop your fatigue and other health issues in their track and experience the energy and long-term health to live your best life.

Our Values


Patients are educated and enabled to take control of their own health. By working together, the best outcome for the individual can be achieved.


All people are of value and worthy of empathy, care, and kindness. Patients are listened to with the aim to be understood, especially in the case of a difficult health journey.


Patients are given outstanding care, advice, and products. Sustainable harvesting of the best herbs and nutritional products is supported.


Patients’ time and money are respected and therefore excess products or services are not prescribed. The body has an innate ability to heal and is best supported with minimal effective interventions.

Kathryn Messenger Naturopathic practitioner

I’m passionate about helping you improve your health, so that you can have the energy you need to live your best life. What enjoy most about being a naturopath being able to changes people’s lives by improving their health around using natural products.

As a mum of 4 kids, I understand how life can be busy and hectic, and what it’s like to find yourself in a place where you haven’t prioritised your health. I want to make this easy for you: I rarely recommend a complete diet and lifestyle overhaul, but work with you to make the changes that will have the biggest impact on your current health issues and are sustainable in the long term.

My clinic is in Ferntree Gully but I have always lived in the Dandenongs amongst tall trees, forests of ferns, and I love the beautiful forest walks.

What I love about being a naturopath

I often see people struggling with fatigue, digestives issues, weight gain and a host of other conditions and they don’t know that there are solutions for them. These are called functional diseases where pathology and imaging show that there are no nasties, but people can be left with few or no solutions to their health. If this is you, I would love to help you feel better.

Once I understand what’s causing and contributing to your symptoms, I prescribe a combination of natural products. These products will not only have you feeling better when you while them, but will work at treating the cause so that problem disappears.

For most people, there are a whole realm of natural medicines available to help you that you may not even know about!

Come and find out for yourself at either our Ferntree Gully clinic or with an online appointment.
