VIVE Health Clinic

Holistic health, conventional and natural medicines both have their place. We strongly advocate the balance of conventional and natural medicines. Individual primary health objectives are assessed from both a traditional and modern medical perspective. VIVE stresses the importance of a strong network of holistic medical Doctors, Naturopaths, Nutritionists, Homeopaths, acupuncturists, and Body Work Therapists.

The Vive business is created by the quality of professionals that operate within it. Our goal is to provide the public with highly qualified and experienced staff at all times. Staff are accessible on the floor for general information or for in-depth consultation in clinic.

Mindy Duncan, Naturopath
My belief around health is simple; Great health – and I’m talking about vibrant health that has you to bouncing out of bed in the morning, the kind of health that allows you experience painless regular menstrual cycles, balanced thyroid & mental health, restful sleep, strong digestion & stable daily energy levels – is how our bodies were designed to function & therefore not unrealistic to expect or strive towards.

Leia Mulroy - Nutritionist
Leia is a practicing Clinical Nutritionist who has a strong passion for Digestive and Gastrointestinal Health and its connecting effects to Immune function, Metabolism, Nervous system and Emotional Wellbeing.

Leia seeks to treat all aspects of wellness by focusing on person’s complex array of contributing factors that may be relevant with finding and treating the underlying cause. The human body is a complex design and no two are ever the same. This is why it is important to consider all factors no matter how small. From the type of food you eat, your blood type, medications, underlying nutrient deficiencies, too much bigger impacts such as genetic mutations, chronic infections and diseases.
