Dr Angela Tallarida is passionate about integrative medicine and enjoys learning the stories of her patient's lives and how this impacts upon and guides their journey towards better health.
She is particularly fascinated by how modern science is revealing the evidence behind ancient wisdom and practices like meditation and yoga, and how we can use simple lifestyle interventions like diet changes or mindfulness to create very meaningful changes within our everyday lives. She was first introduced to a holistic approach to medicine in Byron Bay where she witnessed firsthand amazing transformations in people's health and wellbeing.
She obtained her medical degree from Monash University and has worked in general practice on the Mornington Peninsula for the last 8 years. Having been awarded several scholarships she was privileged to be trained in Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander health in Alice Springs.
She believes that the true value of the Whole Medicine Clinic, is in the community feel and the relationships between and the broad minded approach of the passionate and diverse healthcare team.
She grew up on a farm in Mornington and lives locally with her husband and two young sons. She loves good company, good music, good coffee and good food. She does yoga to relax and spends lots of time outdoors in nature.
She has a broad range of interests including women and children's health, mental health, chronic pain, stress management, gut health, men's health and travel medicine.
