About Nutritional Healing
Blake Graham, B.Sc (Honours) – Clinical Nutritionist
Clinical Nutritionist Blake Graham is a passionate specialist in the fields of science-based nutritional, environmental and integrative medicine. He has Bachelor of Science and Honours degrees in Nutrition from Curtin University. Blake’s honours thesis investigated metabolic and nutritional aspects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Blake is also an associate of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) and has undertaken practitioner training with the Defeat Autism Now (DAN!) group. Blake has been in practice since late 2004.
Practice – Perth, Western Australia
Blake works at NatMed in Perth, Western Australia. A primary goal is to identify the causes of your symptoms, rather than using ‘one size fits all’ treatments. For example Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is often caused by intestinal infections (e.g. parasites) and treatment of intestinal infection often results in the disappearance of symptoms. This approach is different to, for example, using stimulant herbs to treat fatigue, or using analgesics for treating chronic pain. Blake utilizes cutting edge integrative medicine practices which combine the best of dietary therapies, nutrient supplements, herbal medicine, ‘mind-body’ practices, environmental medicine, lifestyle optimisation and referral for other services.
Blake’s thorough practice method involves analysing an extensive 18 page, 8000+ word health questionnaire (continuously refined since 2002) and relevant laboratory tests in order to identify the causes of your health issues. An initial consultation typically takes around 90 minutes. Information collected is used to create individualised recommendations regarding supplements, diet, environmental modifications and lifestyle, to correct underlying issues. Blake specializes in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Fibromyalgia, Autism, and mental health conditions (e.g. Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia).

This website was first launched by Blake in February 2003 with the purpose of informing readers of the many possibilities in overcoming illness, and the importance of nutrition in this regard. The funding for the new professional design of the site was provided by Margie Roswell, a very generous and caring woman from Baltimore.
