About

Hello there, my name is Jennifer Kennedy, and I’m a qualified naturopath and owner of Prescribing Nature.

My Natural Health Experience and Training

I studied Naturopathy at the Endeavour College of Natural Medicine, Melbourne Campus. I have been working in the natural health industry for a total of 10 years and have extensive knowledge of both scientific research-based medicine and traditional naturopathic principles. Samuel R. Kennedy, ND, HOM has mentored me in both naturopathic and homeopathic medicine as well as dark field microscopy (live blood analysis). Samuel has 30 years of clinical experience in each of these specialties and runs a very successful natural health business on the Mornington Peninsula.

Improving Your Quality of Life
As a naturopath, my passion is all about improving your health, about bettering your quality of life, so you can be the best you can be, not just for yourself but also for the people around you that you care about the most. I strive to educate, motivate, and provide the essential tools to give back to my patients their old self, the life they lost when they became ill.
Improving your quality of life may simply mean having more energy and stamina to play with your children again, or experiencing less pain so you can get back to enjoying your favorite hobby or exercise routine, or reducing your frequency of illness so you can get back to the job you love and maybe provide better for your family or even giving you financial freedom. Maybe it’s losing those extra kilos so you can feel more comfortable in a swimsuit or fit into outfits you haven’t been able to wear in a long time. Perhaps you just want to wake up each day feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from a proper night’s sleep. Whatever your health goals are, feeling healthy and vibrant means that you can accomplish more and get the most out of each day, leading to your best possible life.
My Personal Wellness Journey
“I know what’s its like to be unwell and understand how life can be significantly impacted from ill health. I suffered from debilitating hormonal migraines in my early 20s, and this greatly affected my quality of life at the time. Having a migraine for me meant I was not able to work or attend all my university classes but rather be bound to resting in bed until it passed. My migraines would sometimes occur fortnightly and last up to 2-3 days in duration. Mainstream medicine was of no help to me, and some medications gave me awful side effects or even worsened my symptoms. Migraines are a health condition that runs in my family. My grandmother had them, and so did my mother. I just thought because it was a condition passed down through my family I would have to suffer with them for the rest of my life. Thankfully, through my education of naturopathic medicine, I am now able to manage my migraine symptoms where they no longer impact my life like they had previously. Without the help of naturopathic medicine, I don’t know where I would be today.”
Taking the Next Step
Are you ready to feel healthy and vibrant again? Are you prepared to take the next step to better health?

I look forward to hearing from you and becoming part of your well-being journey.
