Kyeema has a passion for helping people to be the best they can be. She specialises in weight loss but also sees many clients for other conditions such as PMS, menopause, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, arthritis, detoxification programs and pre-conception care.
Kyeema also takes a keen interest in skin conditions, having been an eczema sufferer herself as a teenager. After three years of supressing the symptoms with cortisone cream she experienced a side effect from the cream that scarred her for life. Her doctors said "it is something you will have for the rest of your life, learn to deal with it" but Kyeema did not accept this. While searching for an alternative she discovered naturopathy and after 6 months of treatment she was cured.
Kyeema is passionate about sharing her knowledge with anyone that wants to learn how they to can benefit from natural medicine. She aims to support your body's innate ability to heal itself by removing obstacles to health and providing support to restore vitality and create well being. Kyeema has patients that travel from all over Victoria as well as clients from Tasmania and NSW.
Kyeema also takes into account the traditional history of use of natural medicines and applies it when appropriate. She believes it is important to choose a method of treatment that will do no harm to the patient and aims to treat the cause of the symptoms rather than suppressing or hiding the problem with medication.
Kyeema has been a naturopath for 15 years regularly attends training courses and seminars to remain abreast of the latest developments in the healthcare industry allowing her to impart the latest information and findings to you, making faster, more successful results available to you. She also prefers to use natural remedies, supported by valid, scientific data that substantiates the effect it has on the healing process

With over 15 years of experience, Petroula is an experienced naturopathic practitioner specialising in weight loss, fertility issues, women’s and children’s health.
Petroula has a particular interest in female health. Over the years, it has been her female clients who have achieved their weight loss goals, rejuvenated health and energy and an overall new lease on life that has given Petroula the biggest reward. Petroula knows first hand what it’s like trying to juggle it all; raising three children, managing a household with her husband, ensuring her relationships are nurtured, working, trying to stay healthy in body and mind and keep up with regular exercise and dealing with every day stresses! It’s exhausting just thinking about it! In her experience, something’s always gotta give- and that something is usually people’s (in particular women’s) health.
Petroula works with women, assisting them in all areas of health- including hormonal, thyroid & adrenal issues surrounding weight loss and infertility. Whether it’s just a few stubborn kilos, post-baby weight, menopausal weight gain, or facilitating IVF, preconception care or achieving a successful and healthy pregnancy and baby, Petroula will offer her personal and professional knowledge.
Having her own struggles conceiving, Petroula looked into all aspects of her health and with naturopathic care from herbs, supplements and diet & lifestyle management, she managed to eventually fall pregnant 3 times in 4 years and give birth naturally and drug-free to 3 beautiful, healthy children. With these babies came the weight gain also, and the added hormonal mood changes. Once again, with naturopathic care and rebalancing hormones, she successfully got to her pre-baby weight.
In the past 7 years, Petroula has also found her "younger" patients very rewarding to work with. She believes that it is important to ensure childhood years are happy and stress-free years for both parents and children. Petroula specialises in treating common childhood and infant conditions such as eczema, allergies and rashes, ADHD and other learning and behavioural issues, including autism spectrum disorder, infections (ear, coughs and colds, tonsillitis) bed wetting, emotional issues, fatigue, weight and appetite issues.
Petroula keeps up-to-date with all the latest information in this ever-changing industry by attending seminars and conferences and training classes any chance she gets. Nu-Leaf is at the fore-front of professional complementary medicine services, and with both its directors having a science and biochemical background, is committed to an evidence-based approach, offering you current available tests wherever needed, both in-house and referring for functional and general pathology testing if required.
