Megan Coad

Naturopath and MD student

Final year Medical student (MD) 
Masters Reproductive Medicine 
Ad Dip. Naturopathy 
BHSc Health Science (Western Herbal Medicine)

An inspiration to those that meet her, Megan Coad is in the final phase of completing the Doctor of Medicine program. As a naturopath for over 12 years, this doctor-to-be has big plans to combine the Medical world with the Natural medicine world, for an integrative approach to health.
 
Specialising in woman’s health and fertility, Megan supports parents-to-be in the preconception phase to optimise eggs and sperm, helping to prepare healthy bodies for a healthy pregnancy and best possible baby. Completing -with Excellence- a Master in Reproductive Medicine in 2018, she understands ART and IVF well; and tailors treatments to compliment the fertility process. 
 
Yet, as vast as naturopathy can be, Megan is also confident in managing a wide range of ailments. Areas here include gut health, liver cleanse, mood disorders, hormonal imbalance and autoimmune conditions. Without doubt, Megan’s approach takes a birds-eye, multi-system and holistic avenue, which accounts for comorbidities, nutritional deficiencies, system interactions and medications.
 
Megan has served as a corporate educator in the practitioner-only field for over 6 years, as well as lectured in a number of the universities and tertiary institutions. She follows the ethos that we all have the capacity for lifelong growth and positive change, it’s merely self-determination that drives us forward. 
 
Megan manages a busy blended family of 6, modelling strong ethics, good food on the table and a compassionately attuned approach to parenting.
