About Me

I'm Paula Benedi

I am passionate about healing the body from within – naturally and effectively. It was my own experience of ill health that sparked my passion for integrative medicine and, after graduating from law school, I realised that I needed to follow my gut (literally!). As a result, I became a certified Integrative Health Practitioner.
