Our Team

Hi, My name is Jasmin Polley and I’m a rare breed of functional medicine practitioner, being also a biomedical scientist and naturopath.

I have been practicing since 2003 and I founded Wellness Vision in 2015 with my long-term vision of building a holistic and integrative practice.

I specialise in Hormones, Energy and Gut health – why these areas…..let me share my story….

My story

In my early 20’s I suffering horrendous hormonal issues after taking the oral contraceptive pill. I had no idea that the artificial hormones could send my whole body (and mind) completely haywire. I was also very lucky not to suffer further compilations from possible blood clots in my legs after a long-haul flight (as I could see them but didn’t go to hospital being entirely unaware of the risks at that time).

I have always been one of those annoying ‘but why’ people, so it didn’t take me long to realise three things that would change the course of my life:

  • A “one-size fits all” approach doesn’t work, as even though I had many friends taking the pill without issues, artificial hormones did not suit me.
  • There is a connection between hormones and gut health, as the pill also made a mess of my previously robust digestion.
  • Food really matters, as if I ate badly everything just got ten times worse (fatigue, hormones, gut health, skin…the works).

These realisations led me to start my naturopathic training. After completing this I realised how much more there was to learn, so I began my Biomedical Science degree (who would’ve known, as I hated science in high school). My plan was to go on and study dietetics or medicine, however after witnessing on multiple occasions the narrow-minded, drug-based approach of some of the medical lecturers, I didn’t want to be the type of doctor they were training.

Many years down the track…some more health learnings of my own (most notably digestive issues/SIBO after a bad bout of food poisoning in Vanuatu), as well as a wonderful husband and two gorgeous kids….I have found my niche and I love what I do! I love getting to know my clients and watching them transform their health, their thoughts and their lives to become masters of their own health journey x

“In April 2016 I ran in the Hill to Harbour 10km event. It was such a hard slog and it utterly wiped me out for weeks afterwards. I had done plenty of training, and just didn’t have the fitness I should have (I thought I was just getting OLD!) I finally realised that my constant tiredness and cyclical energy slumps needed to be addressed because I have work to do on this earth. Jasmin is an incredibly knowledgable and kind naturopath who has taken my personal health goals and really worked with me to make them happen. I am now understanding that a lifetime of energy and mood slumps, at times deep sadness, have been a result of adrenal fatigue. So 12 months in and I have a mental clarity and focus that I haven’t felt for YEARS, my emotional stability is back into the normal ebb and flow of life, and my energy levels are ever increasing. Thank you so much Jasmin x”
