Julide Turker is a Functional Medicine Practitioner and has been in this specialisation for over 13 years.
A Functional Medicine Practitioner is someone you can see to help with health challenges by understanding and establishing a healing protocol unique to you , and via working on understanding the root causes of your condition , and therefore making changes to your diet, lifestyle (environmental factors) and thru supplementing with herbs and nutritional medicine. Natural medicine is a person-centred approach rather than a symptom centred approach.
Since the commencement of 2022, Julide now focuses on Paediatric Naturopathy – that is she works with children under the age of 12.
She holds the following tertiary qualifications:
Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy & Nutrition)
Masters in Food Sciences / Food Engineering with Melbourne University
Julide is also a Personal Trainer & Neurolinguistic Programming Coach.
Her work is built on the fundamentals of Islam, in that our bodies are an amanah (trust) from Allah SWT (god) , that we are accountable to Allah SWT for how we look after this amanah and that nothing happens in this world without the permission of Allah SWT.
The fundamentals of her practice are built on prevention being better than cure, building & maintaining optimal health and wellness throughout life to better serve God through conscious living.
At Julide Turker Naturopathy, our patients’ ailments are not simply looked at via a symptom centred approach but rather a holistic individual centred approach.
Julide is committed to helping her paediatric patients to restore their health and enable them to be the best version of themselves spiritually , physically, and mentally.
She coaches , educates, and empowers her patients relative to the philosophy that prevention is better than cure. Her time in clinical consultation has proven that the more work you are able to do with yourself and children earlier on in setting the foundations of optimum mental, physical and spiritual wellness, the less work you will have to put in later because of illness and the aging process.
More recently she has finished writing her book, “One Third Of Your Stomach” – a book that is the very essence of what Julide does & acknowledges the mind, body and spirit connection and how food and our everyday choices affects our being as a whole.
For too long we have disconnected the importance that our environment and our mental health play-out in our physical self. We forget that we are in fact spiritual beings that are physically manifesting in a 3-dimensional body.
The book is on all things on preventative holistic medicine, how improving your physical health goes hand in hand with improving your spiritual heath called & is inspired by our Islamic and prophetic traditions around food and lifestyle.
Julide is also a mother of 3 angels, a 6 and a 4 year old and a 4 month old. She has been working from home via zoom / phone consultations since the birth of her first child, during in which time her clinic has grown rapidly and exponentially as individuals globally seek her out to support & restore their children’s health.
In her free time, she loves reading, painting, and gardening. She is a qualified black belt Dan 1 in Taekwondo and a Personal Trainer (she used to do PT in the past)
Beethoven, World history, literature and the liberal arts are some of the things she loves. Julide has had a desire to learn the piano since having has some experiences with it in high school & is something she is re integrating into her action orientated goals (Julide is doing this to serve her my inner-child)
