Naturopath, nutritionist and medical herbalist Helen Padarin has been in clinical practice since 2001. She works from 2 clinics in Sydney, Australia, and was recently asked to take part in Chef Pete Evans upcoming production called The Paleo Chef, filming recipes for the new TV show.

Helen is co-author of the book ‘Bubba Yum Yum’ with Charlotte Carr and Pete Evans.

Helen has been called on to write articles for popular health magazines, and to write a chapter for a clinical textbook published by Elsevier in 2011. Since 2011 Helen has been a regular presenter and ambassador for the Mindd Foundation, and has presented for Health Masters Live and ACNEM, providing post-graduate education for GP’s, naturopaths, nutritionists and other health care professionals. While living in NZ for over 4 years, Helen also lectured anatomy and physiology for the NZ College of Massage at the NZ Institute of Sport.

Helen holds a bachelor degree in Health Sciences (Naturopathy), advanced diplomas in nutrition, herbal medicine and massage and has completed extensive post-graduate training in treatment for metabolic, neurologic, digestive and immune disorders.

Helen is passionate about conscious living, real food, vital health and empowering individuals, families and organisations to find the joy in being well. She gains constant inspiration from seeing clients make conscious changes to their physical health to find that it also benefits their emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing as well. She loves working with other health professionals, community groups, thought leaders and game changers providing a truly holistic approach to health and in doing so creating a supportive community.

Helen finds nothing more satisfying than seeing patients and clients inadvertently spread inspiration to friends and family around them. Vitality, it turns out, is contagious!

In spare time Helen enjoys practicing yoga, outdoor adventure, walking in nature, spending time by and in the ocean, playing (i.e. working on her fitness), progressing her own journey of wellness, sharing enriching and joyful experiences with friends and family, and continuing on the journey of “know thyself”.

Jeremy Princi is an expert in health and wellness and registered Chiropractor. Jeremy has undertaken post-graduate studies in Sports Chiropractic, International Sports Chiropractic and Holistic Lifestyle Coaching (CHEK Institute).

Jeremy was awarded graduate of the year when finishing his training and has worked with professional baseball players in America  (Seattle Mariners) and has also travelled with the WA state junior cricket team as the team chiropractor.

Jeremy has an inspired passion for organic and biodynamic farming. His vision is to re-connect food, farming, fitness and healing into one holistic model of health, which supports, honours and respects Mother Earth.

What differentiates Jeremy from ‘the pack’ is his humble and sincere focus on Action! And being the change he wants to see in the world, which becomes apparent to anyone who meets and spends time with him. Jeremy inspires not only his clients but also his work-colleagues, friends and family to live a healthier and more sustainable life.

Jeremy is passionate about the evolving science regarding our microbiome and fermented foods and their health benefits.


Having being diagnosed with chronic illness Crohn’s Disease, and totally in despair, with day to day living becoming intolerable, Bendy sought out a way to fight back and regain his health. Now 25 kg lighter and much fitter, totally off medication and symptom free, he has found light at the end of a Paleo tunnel and now loves nothing more than helping and inspiring others to regain their health too and show them that an ordinary family man can live this lifestyle and feel the benefits very easily. Bendy has featured on Pete Evan’s The Paleo Way website and The Paleo Way Magazine and on Channel 9 News with Dr Joe Kosterich. Bendy has recently been invited to write blog posts for Dr Joe Kosterich’s website.


Mel IMG_5636
Mel became very ill with an infection in a tooth that migrated into her brain, causing facial paralysis and a brain infection. Following huge doses of antibiotics, Mel sought a way to regain her health through nutrition and Paleo.

She is the brain behind the Paleonutter.

Mel’s passion to learn and teach others to live a clean, chemical free, grain free and sugar free lifestyle so they can reach their ultimate potential and dreams.
