Melonie Thompson

We are so fortunate to have collaborated with Melonie to bring our BARE family some amazing ORGANIC TEA BLENDS!

Candice first came across Melonie at 'The Functional Nutrition Academy, Nutrition Summit' in Brisbane, July 2018. She was a guest speaker, discussing all things herbalism. Her obvious love of plants, combined with her incredible knowledge filled Candice with such admiration and inspiration.

Melonie is a Naturopath, Medical Herbalist, Intuitive Healer, Food Therapist, Yoga Instructor and Founder of Groundwork Health and Wellbeing.

Intuitive Guidance, keen taste buds, a lust for knowledge and a strong embrace for mother nature’s gifts, began this journey into natural medicine for Melonie. Appreciating her nomadic lifestyle and continually discovering more about food, yoga and wellbeing, Melonie completed her BHSc Naturopathy and a certificate IV in yoga teaching. The past 10 years have seen Melonie sharing her passion with many students and clients on retreats, studios and rehabilitation programs. At last, grounding herself on the sunny Sunshine Coast, Melonie has been practicing both privately and within organisations, allowing her to specialise in mental health, addictions and gut health. Melonie is passionate about an integrated health approach and works collaboratively with local doctors and specialising therapists. Melonie now practices from her private clinic in Cooroy, ‘The heart of the hinterland’, where she enjoys sharing this knowledge amongst the community, and creating the groundwork for a natural approach to health and wellbeing for our future generations, honouring mother earth and minimising the use of synthetic medications.
