"Fabulous new model for Naturopathic Functional Medicine - all Practitioners should do it!" - Emma Park


Hi I'm Carla Wrenn and I have been a practising Naturopath for 19 years.

Consulting in a variety of settings including the well known Peninsula Herbal Dispensary in Mornington, Victoria since 2009. You can read more about me and my practice here. 

I attended the Institute of Functional Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia to complete Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP) in 2015. 

Learning from some of my Functional Medicine heroes was amazing, but the best part was bringing what I learnt home and using it in my practice. Then adapting it to how we practice in Australia, which led to the creation of Vitae Mosaic.

Vitae meaning 'the course of ones life'.

Mosaic meaning 'a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small pieces'.

Vitae Mosaic is a style of Functional Medicine that is better suited to Australian Naturopaths more advance holistic knowledge, using our naturopathic language, and tailored to our Australian style of practice and healthcare environment. 

Vitae Mosaic has changed the way I practice, has given me greater confidence in my ability to help the really sick patients who have already tried many things, the complex cases, the chronically ill, autoimmune diseases, oncology, the 'unknown illnesses' and more. Read more from Julie, one of these patients, below...

My results, happy patients and appointment book speak for themselves – my practice thrives using Naturopathic Functional Medicine. Now due to popular demand  you can join me from the comfort of your own home or clinic!

Feedback from Carla's patients who have experienced the benefits of Vitae Mosaic – Naturopathic Functional Medicine:

"Carla thank you from the bottom of my heart, I know it's baby steps, but I feel so much better, before I came to see you I had hit rock bottom, no light at the end of my tunnel, I was so sick of hospitals, blood tests, Dr's, every 6 to 8 weeks, for 2 & a half years. Tablets making me sicker, all I did was lay on the lounge all day no energy, thinking back now I had given up, net flicks got a great work out! I really thought there was no way out of this, you were my last hope, and after four weeks of seeing you, I'm seeing changes every day, even in my weight, I am so grateful to you, taking time for me, and so caring, it's onwards & upwards, looking forward to the future, with your help". – Julie*
