About me

My name is Luke and I’m a fully qualified multi-modality Integrative Naturopath, Nutritionist, Western Herbalist & Massage Therapist with over 15 years experience in the health and wellbeing sector. Alongside my formal qualifications I have also trained in functional medicine, transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation, DNA analysis and nutrigenomics, microscopic cell analysis, fitness and personal training, medical astrology, alchemical herbalism, and the Munay-ki healing rites.

In recent years I have worked alongside some of Australia’s leading functional medicine doctors who are renowned experts in inflammatory disorders, neurological disorders, heavy metal toxicity, postnatal depletion and functional medicine. I was also very lucky to have received direct mentorship from various PhD experts in Nutritional Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine along with leading Functional Medicine practitioners in their fields of expertise. Each year I continue to attend Functional Medicine seminars to stay up to date with the most advanced understanding of complementary medicine therapeutics that are available.

My studies have covered a wide range of modalities at various leading natural health colleges including the Southern School of Natural Therapies, Australian Institute of Holistic Medicine, Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, Australian College of Massage Therapy, School of Evolutionary Herbalism, Four Winds Society, and I am looking towards postgraduate studies by undertaking a Masters degree in Advanced Naturopathic Medicine in the near future.

For the past 15 years I have continued to venture and learn experientially in the areas of advanced meditation, plant medicine, body therapies & indigenous healing techniques, bringing the wisdom of the past to the present from such locations as Peru, Mongolia, Vanuatu, Thailand and throughout Australia to share with my clients.

As your health & healing journey begins with me, I will often combine clinical investigations and functional pathology alongside a thorough intake of your case history to deeply investigate and understand your health concerns. I may also utilise live cell analysis, birth chart analysis and iridology where indicated to ensure no stone is left unturned to fully detail any constitutional imbalances. Each consultation ends with a personalised treatment plan tailored specifically to restoring your health and optimising your wellbeing.

My Story

My journey with health, healing and medicine started very early on in childhood with various stints of my own in hospital for a number of childhood accidents and medical mishaps. My first memory as a child was telling my Mum “I want to be a doctor but I don’t like the blood”, this was after nearly losing 3 fingers on my left hand in an accident and having microsurgery to reattach them. I have fond memories visiting my Grandmother who would always end up giving me a vitamin C lozenge before we would leave to go home, years later I’d learn the power of this amazing vitamin myself.

My childhood Summer holidays were usually spent running barefoot around the Wombat State Forest in Blackwood Victoria, eating wild blackberries and getting lost in the bush, this is where my passion and deep connection with animals, nature and the elements began. My teenage years I was fanatical about sport and captained the local football and cricket teams, which then led me to enrol in fitness instruction and personal training straight out of high school where I first found my passion for nutrition. Years after the surgery on my fingers I would learn guitar to help strengthen them and realised I had a knack for songwriting.

I left the world of personal training and nutrition at 22 years old and went on to record ARIA charting albums and tour Australia in multiple music acts in my mid twenties. I have always believed music is a powerful medicine having seen the impact it had on crowds I performed to, but it wasn’t until I was shown a deeper aspect of this power first hand through experiencing the amazing healing Icaro’s sung by the Shipibo Shaman whilst in Peru that I fully understood it’s importance as medicine (more on this later).

As they say in the Greek medical traditions “exercise for the body, education for the mind, music for the soul”. I now regularly employ sound and vibrational therapy in my massage and vagus nerve stimulation sessions to increase my clients healing outcomes. During my mid twenties I was fortunate enough to visit the jungles of Borneo where I had what I can only describe as a “telepathic heart to heart experience” with a wild orangutan. During this moment it was strongly communicated to me that I needed to help these animals and their environment, so upon returning home I started fundraising on behalf of an animal welfare charity in between touring and recording my music. I went on to work on behalf of many wildlife, environmental, animal welfare and human rights charities, raising approximately $20 million dollars during my tenure and eventually operated my own fundraising company for a short period of time before focusing full time on Naturopathy.

I truly believe our environment, the creatures we share the planet with, and our own health are intimately connected, and to help ourselves we need to help our planet and its non-human inhabitants. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to much of the natural world including Africa, South America, Egypt, South East Asia, the Pacific Islands, Galapagos Islands, the Amazon Jungle, the Kimberley and many other wild places whilst taking in some of the medicine traditions along the way. A big turning point was my time in the Amazon with the Shipibo Shaman in Peru, this is where it became clear I needed to reconnect with medicine and start my path as a Naturopath (Doctor without the blood).

I immediately enrolled into studies upon my return and at around this point my future wife and co-creator of Little Earth Health fell sick with “mystery illness”. At the onset I was due to travel to Mongolia on a mountain trek to visit various other Shaman, and then travel onto Europe together, of course we cancelled the trip BUT a few years later we flew out the same Mongolian Shaman who came to live with us and help with her healing, this is where we learned certain aspects about our energy body and the power of meditation and prayer. From the onset and over the first 3 years we spent over $150,000 seeking answers and help from every mainstream and alternative health modality you could think of (I would list them, but it is literally over 40 modalities).

Through this ordeal we learned many things about these health modalities including when and how to use them, but we also learned what it is like to walk out of an appointment with $700 worth of supplements and no real answers. We also learned what it was like to get your hopes up after finding “the next modality” only to be disappointed again. We also learned what it was like to wake up at 3am, fly interstate, hire a car and go to an appointment for an hour then head straight back to the airport and fly home in the same day without having “cured” the symptoms every month for years. We also learned what it is like to be spoken down to by careless and egocentric health practitioners. We also learned what it is like to fall asleep at a computer desk at 4am researching and looking for answers and understanding to this mystery illness.

We also learned what it is like scraping together money to afford another treatment in hope “this one could be the one that works”. We also learned what it is like to cry tears of desperation at times and want to give up. Our training as natural health practitioners was not purely academic, it was an initiation, an ordeal, a real awakening had happened which led to the birth of Little Earth Health and the birth of two new health practitioners dedicated to supporting their clients on their own healing path. When you think you are alone and nobody understands what it is you are going through, just know we have been there, we have felt it, we have gone through it, we have transmuted it, and we stand here today with open hearts offering our wisdom to you.

Yours in Health
