I am passionate about patient education and teaching people how modern life drives chronic illness and disease, how some simple measures can prevent most conditions, and how naturopathic medicine can be an extremely useful adjunct to a holistic treatment plan for many chronic diseases.
Tegan Marshall is a passionate, qualified and accredited Naturopath who is well prepared to discover the root cause of your health concerns and help you to improve your wellbeing. She grew up on the Sunshine Coast and decided to spread her wings at 24 years young to move to the Gold Coast where she felt like she had found her ‘home’ and resided there for almost 3 years. Sadly, not long after settling at the Gold Coast, her mother was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic colorectal cancer and so she and her sister moved her mother to the Gold Coast so that they could take care of her and be present during her numerous hospital stays.
The short version - her mother kicked cancer to the curb with only surgery and natural therapies, after being told she had about 6 months to live without chemo or radiation (which she refused). Once she had regained enough health after her final surgery, she wanted to move back to the Sunshine Coast and so Tegan followed. This family challenge, and also after having worked as a Personal Trainer and becoming frustrated by the variable results even with her most committed clients, was when Tegan realised that most people need so much more than an exercise prescription to improve their health, because there were so many unique things that had happened to each individual during their lives, and these were the reasons for their current state of health.
Over those few years, Tegan developed an undeniable passion to follow a career in natural therapies and so embarked on a 5-year journey to study Health Science. She graduated from Australasian College of Natural Therapies (Torrens University) with an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy and Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy). Her personality type is teacher and researcher, therefore she loves to study and stay up to date with the latest industry research so she can impart her knowledge with willing friends, family and patients. Tegan has an innate ability to unearth the root cause of her patients health concerns and get them feeling better than they have in years.
