Julie Farrelly

Julie Farrelly

Nurse Practitioner

Julie has worked for many years in a variety of conventional medicine settings where chronic disease is ‘managed’, but not ever reversed. Julie never felt satisfied with the ‘band-aid’ model of health care. Julie understands that lifestyle changes such as nutrition, stress management and gut health were the cornerstone of optimal health.

Combined with the heartbreak of watching her own mother succumb to the ravages of Alzheimer’s Disease, led Julie to venture into further study including nutritional and environmental medicine and discover the power of Functional Medicine.

As a functional medicine specialist Julie is able to integrate conventional medicine with functional medicine, in order to prevent and reverse chronic disease in herself, her family and ultimately her patients.

Julie believes that a diagnoses is not your destiny and that you should have autonomy and control over your health. Julie’s patients are often very reassured when they hear that conditions such as obesity, diabetes or high cholesterol don’t just ‘run in the family’ and that common chronic inflammation symptoms like swollen joints, achy muscles, headaches and irritable bowel symptoms aren’t just the consequences of getting older!

Julie’s mission is to share her knowledge of the positive impact of integrative and functional medicine on your health – through careful listening, compassion, education and support – Julie is there to support you on your journey to healing and achieving optimal health.
