About Lee Formica & BodyMind Bellingen
Lee Formica holds Bachelor degrees in Social Work (UNSW) and Health Science - Complementary Medicine (CSU) AdvDipHom (Nature Care College) and more recently postgraduate studies in Mental Health Practice (UNE).
Recognising the intricate interplay between physical, emotional and mental health, Lee’s clinical practice is grounded within a bio-psychosocial or ‘bodymind’ approach to healthcare.
A major focus of this work is providing homeopathic support for stress related conditions such as headache, gastrointestinal problems, poor immunity/auto-immune problems, chronic unexplained cough, insomnia, chronic pain and fatigue syndromes including post-viral fatigue.
Similarly, the practice is dedicated to the support of emotional and mental health concerns such as persistent melancholy, anxiety, episodes of panic or shock and prolonged grief through an integration of homeopathy and holistic mental health practice.
The beauty of a holistic approach is that by seeking help with a physical condition you should also expect significant improvements in mood, sleep and energy. Likewise, classical homeopathic support for emotional and mental health problems results in a synergistic alleviation of physical symptoms or complaints.

'How I got into Homeopathy' aka
Holistic Mental Healthcare
About 16 years ago I found myself wanting to learn more about healing and medicine, especially regards emotional and mental health. I’d studied/worked in social work practice and had witnessed the conventional medical model approach and had found it somewhat 'wanting'...
I thought I'd study nutritional medicine. I have spent plenty of time in hospitality - cafes and cooking - and had always connected to ‘food as medicine'.
However on the college open day, I went to a Homeopathy lecture ‘Is there an alternative to anti-depressants’, given by my soon-to-be-teacher Mary Bentley. She talked about Homeopathy, its scope in holistic mental health care, and then presented a couple of paper cases. I was totally intrigued.
Around the same time I had come across a book by Dr Rudolph Ballentine called ‘Radical Healing’. His chapter on Homeopathy & cell salts was another first inkling to the world of Homeopathic Medicine and coupled with Mary’s presentation, I was starting to get hooked! I changed my enrolment to major in Homeopathy and graduated 4 years later to my dream job as a homeopath ;-)
