Alexandra Middleton is an experienced natural medicine clinician with over ten years of experience in helping women optimise their hormones & reproductive health.
Her mission is to show women with Endometriosis how to get their quality of life back thru the combined power of natural, environmental and conventional medicine.
Alex’s approach is grounded in the principles of both naturopathic and evidence-based medicine. She is passionate about incorporating the latest research into her clinical practice and recently co-authored a 2021 paper published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.

Alex also works extensively with the medical community because she believes collaboration is the best way to ensure positive outcomes for her clients. Working closely with specialists in gynaecology, endocrinology, fertility and general practice (GPs), she uses functional pathology testing and environment assessments to ensure her clients get the correct medical diagnosis. This is key in her treatment plans that include advice around therapeutic dietary strategies, lifestyle advice and nutritional supplementation.
Outside of her clinic, Alex is a passionate advocate for her industry and supports lobbying activities through her work at the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS). Here she also runs Australia’s largest Continuing Professional Education program for fellow practitioners who like her want to stay on top of the science.
