About me

Why I do what I do

Hi, I’m Leisa Tuite

When I was young, I wanted to be a teacher!

I was always very confident that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Plus, my Mother was a teacher. Until I got to high school and loved ‘Home Economics’, which involved a portion of cooking delicious foods. I started to really have an interest in food and what happens to food when we eat it. I also grew up with my parents always taking a holistic approach to illness, nutritious foods and would treat the four of us kids with natural medicine as much as possible.

My own health problems

I experienced extremely painful headaches all of my high schooling life. Along with leaky gut, cold sores, hormonal imbalances and congested skin. I had seen many different doctors and even had a CT scan. It wasn’t until I saw a Naturopath who took many factors into consideration, cleaned up my diet, gave supplement support and taught me a lot about my own body. I saw what impact diet has on every biochemical reaction within the body and I wanted to learn more!


My Naturopath Qualifications

Becoming a Naturopath

The more I found out, the more I wanted to become a Naturopath myself. With some encouragement from my beautiful science teacher at school (who is now also a Naturopath) and my parents. I decided to give it a go! I even wrote an essay saying why I want a career in Natural Medicine to go in the running for a university scholarship, and won a half scholarship! I studied a four-year degree – Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy. Here I am 7 years later and my love for natural medicine is strong and always want to keep up to date with evidence-based research. I am a qualified Naturopath registered through the Complementary Medicine Association.


Moving Forward

My goal

  • To give you an understanding of what is occurring in your own body
  • For you to take responsibility of your own level of health and what it is you need to focus on for your own wellbeing.
  • To encourage and support you in your health journey while you make positive changes for a happy healthy life!

I am very passionate about educating my clients about food and living a healthy lifestyle. I have previously practiced in Toowoomba and Brisbane.

My growing family

Since having 2 children of my own, I have gained even more knowledge about nutrition and the importance of having a healthy diet and attitude towards food from a young age.
