Functional Nutrition & EFT Tapping

By Melissa Kovacevic

Achieve your goals and create long lasting health changes.

Functional Nutrition

Functional Nutrition is a sensible, holistic eating method that considers the whole person. It is a non-diet approach that can be integrated into your daily life in increments, to improve your overall health.


Functional Nutrition supports your gut health and emotional profile through using mindful eating practices and whole food nutrition.


Through implementing a Functional Nutritional approach you will learn not to see certain foods as “good” or “bad”, but will instead, develop an understanding of how food fuels your body and contributes to your health and wellbeing.

EFT Tapping

Tapping is a powerful, evidence-based, stress management tool.


It can be used to uncover and address the real reasons for emotional eating and unwanted weight gain.


My clients credit tapping with being the key to changing their relationship with food and developing healthy habits for the future. ​​ 

Seed Cycling

Seed cycling is an all-natural technique that combines the best of nutritional and naturopathic practices to restore hormonal balance for women. 

Think of it like biohacking your menstrual cycle! 

The process involves consuming 4 key seeds; flaxseeds, pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame seeds at specific times of the month to support your body’s hormones and bring them into balance.

Melissa Kovacevic, known as Mel, is a qualified Functional Nutrition and Clinical EFT Practitioner. Mel began studying in these fields several years ago, whilst looking for solutions to her own issues with binge eating and weight management.


After changing her relationship with food, shedding the excess weight and becoming more confident in her skin, Mel knew she had to share these gifts with other people.

Mel started her business, Functional Health Canberra, and began working with clients on a one-to-one basis, before creating Real Food Freedom to serve a broader audience.


Mel is also the co-founder of The Seed Cycle, a business that promotes seed cycling for natural hormone balance and provides pre-packaged seeds and bake mixes to make the process easier to manage.

Can Tapping help me lose weight?

If you struggle to lose weight, are stuck in that terrible diet binge cycle or just sick of extreme diets that don't work long-term, I can help. The combination of EFT Tapping and Functional Nutrition has helped so many maintain their ideal weight. 


I am confused and overwhelmed by nutrition. Where do I start?

That's not surprising with all the diet myths out there as well as industry lead marketing and advertising. I am here to provide you with the most up to date science based nutrition support.


Negative thoughts and self sabotage keep holding me back. Can you help?

Yes! As well as being a powerful tool to help with stress and anxiety, EFT Tapping has helped many of my clients overcome limiting core beliefs, resistance and self sabotaging behaviours. 


Can Tapping help me with emotional eating?
