Dr Fatima Al-Hudaid
Senior Chinese Medicine Practitioner
Dr Fatima Al-Hudaid is a sincere and caring practitioner driven by her passion for helping others. Coming from the highlands of the Arabian Peninsula where traditional herbal knowledge is treasured, she felt a deep calling to pursue traditional Chinese medicine as a career since her love for nature and natural therapies began in her childhood. She holds a double degree in Chinese Medicine and Human Biology from RMIT University and she has accumulated extensive clinical experience from Melbourne, Perth, and the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of TCM in China.
Fatima has a holistic approach to life and believes all parts of a whole are interconnected. Therefore, her passion lies in tracing the dots and connecting them together to find out the root cause of the health issue rather than focusing on the apparent problem alone. And, as much as she enjoys working with patients to achieve their health-related goals using her knowledge and skills in Chinese medicine, coaching, and nutrition, Fatima thrives on creating change at a fundamental level through educating her patients to shift their mindset to embrace change and become comfortable with it. Fatima loves topics of the mind, human behavior, and the internal workings of the brain as what happens at a mental, physical, or emotional level, it is going to have an impact on all the other parts eventually.
Fatima is experienced with helping a range of women’s health conditions such as irregular periods and symptoms of PCOS/endometriosis, in addition to overall poor health. Fatima enjoys supporting couples through their fertility journey naturally or through IVF support as well as providing care throughout pregnancy and postpartum care. She also thoroughly enjoys helping patients with digestive symptoms such as irregular bowel motions, bloating and heartburn as she believes that a happy gut results in a happy life.
During her consultation and treatment sessions, Fatima believes that anxiety and emotional symptoms should not be ignored as they are precursors of many health issues and are important to be addressed. She also has a special interest in the management of pain due to gradual wear and tear, post-injury or post-operation. Other conditions that she can assist with are symptoms of cold and flu, headaches, migraines, menopause, insomnia, hay fever, and skin conditions.
Fatima does her best always to aim towards cultivating a positive outlook in life, keeping things simple and organized. She is a fluffy animal lover and speaks Arabic and is a member of AACMA and NCA.
