About us

Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky in front of praxis sign

Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky is a scientist and researcher with a PhD in Biochemistry as well as a health practitioner (she is not a medical doctor). She is an Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner, a Nutritional Therapist, an Advanced Child and Brain development Nutritional Advisor and a Vagus Nerve Stimulation therapist at Slim Your Way.

Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky is highly experienced in the treatment and management of overweight clients, chronic conditions including IBS/SIBO and other digestive, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Having suffered most of her life from her own digestive issues (including IBS/SIBO/SIFO) and other conditions (gut parasites, chronic EBV, mould illness, a cardiac condition, debilitating ovulation pain, fibroids and breast cysts, shoulder calcifications and being overweight while battling overwhelming stress in her life), she has developed a passion for helping other adults and children regaining their health and life back using natural methods.

Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky offers empathy, emotional support and care that only someone who has experienced similar issues can provide. Because therapies are only effective if they are personalised, she offers personalised treatments to suit client’s own unique bodies and circumstances in form of suggestions for best nutrition, diet, lifestyle plan, supplements, etc.

Our approach

Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky always takes a holistic approach to treatments. Being a scientist and researcher as well as a health practitioner, any advice, treatment or test Dr Laurence Rossato-Pudmenzky provides or suggests is science based. There is no room for guessing in her practice and she relies on health data to monitor your progress. Her goal is to get to the root cause of your health problems and not just treat the symptoms.

Her preference is to work in collaboration with your family/preferred GP. She usually writes a letter to your GP summarising her findings after your initial consultation and may suggest additional testing if required that they may wish to prescribe for you. This is to make sure you are able to benefit from Medicare to cover the costs of these tests. Alternatively, she would be able to prescribe these tests herself but without the Medicare benefits.

What we would need before our initial consultation

In preparation for our initial consultation, it would be great if you were able to:

  • Start gathering any health test results you have (the more the better) including blood, urine, stool and any other relevant test results for the past couple of years. These will need to be scanned and emailed to us one week before our appointment (or earlier if you can) so that we have a chance to review all data prior to our first consultation. This will give us a good picture of your health history. If you do not have a copy of these results, please contact your GP to request a copy of these as it is your right to access your own health data. Alternatively, we will be able to organise new blood tests and any other tests as appropriate for you.
  • Please start making a list of any food, drinks or supplements you are reacting to and include symptoms, their location in your body and approximate time when they occur (e.g. bloating and cramping in my upper belly 30 min after eating garlic together with brain fog and intense anxiety). Please email us the list prior to our consultation.
  • One week food diary (everything that goes into your mouth) indicating what you eat and drink and what supplements you take. Include approximate quantities and time you are having them. Include any symptoms (type of pain, brain fog, anxiety,...) on each day. Please list exactly what you are having and not what you think you should have or would be best for you to have. Our practice is a judgement free zone and we are only interested in you feeling better ASAP. 😊

What to expect from a consultation?

After reviewing your case prior to our initial consultation, we will ask you questions about aspects of your physical and mental health, lifestyle etc. that could be contributing to your condition. We will ask you about your personal preferences to make sure your treatment fits you best.

We may suggest further testing through your GP, or done by us in practice. These can include blood, urine, stool test, comprehensive vitamin and mineral and heavy metal toxicity test, DNA tests, etc.

After we have identified the root cause of your condition, a treatment plan will be specifically designed for you to suit your personal needs. Treatment plan will include suggestions for best nutrition, diet, lifestyle plan, supplements etc.

Vagus nerve stimulation may be recommended if you suffer from system inflammation, autoimmune disease, gut issues, depression, migraine or a cardiac condition. Depending on your condition, you might require several follow up consultations.
