Fontanella are passionate advocates for menopause relief, natural health and herbal medicinals for symptoms of menopause and other active lifestyle behaviours.
All of our supplements and certified organic teas have been crafted using, exclusively, naturally sourced active ingredients with the goal of delivering natural remedies to help sleep, to alleviate pain and discomfort.
“Let’s Live Healthy"
Fontanella Health may appear to be a herb energetics supplement and Australian tea company, but Fontanella is more broadly about EVERYDAY HEALTH. Our team has dedicated many years to study healthy ageing, and identified a range of antioxidants and herbs that led to a range of symptom soothing signature blends and our breakthrough Menopause Formula.
The female body is a work of wonder, it’s reliable, beautiful, functional. Then, somewhere between the ages of 45-55 something changes. Oestrogen decides it’s time for long service leave and leaves you a bit short on the crucial hormone that’s been regulating your body for years. It’s this oestrogen vacation that causes the sudden fluctuation of hormones that lead to the symptoms of menopause.
Unlike a headache or a cold, the feelings associated with menopause are complex; they can shift and change every day. And it’s not just hot flashes. Many women report feeling increased anxiety for no apparent reason, others might experience drier than normal skin, difficulty sleeping and irregular bleeding. It’s safe to say that all of the symptoms associated with menopause are unpleasant, unfair and in most cases annoyingly disruptive.
Our Humble Beginnings
As the founder and CEO of Fontanella wellness formulations, Dr. Mike Pukanic is focused on helping people impact positive change that will enhance their quality of life. He is an advocate for the power of health and happiness and, he believes that every single person deserves the chance to live their healthiest life.
In his pursuit of health, happiness and longevity, Dr Mike Pukanic found that vitamins and herbs could significantly enhance our minds and bodies. His passion and commitment to physical and mental wellness for the human mind and body led him to develop Fontanella; a prescription quality wellness formulation derived from premium ingredients sourced with ethical integrity.
As a General Practitioner (MD), Dr Mike has had the privilege to counsel people of all ages, sexes, races and cultures. That experience has given Dr Mike the opportunity to explore and understand the many complex aspects of human health and behaviour.
For more than 40 years, he approached wellness holistically; and always considered the impact of lifestyle and stress on the human minds and body.
Adapting the best of his medical knowledge and combining his understanding of alternative therapies, Dr. Mike has developed a scientifically formulated range of vitamins that can be used daily for results that optimise health and lifestyle.
“No matter what where we come from, we all share a common desire: we all want to be healthy, we all want to live well – no one wants to feel unwell. So, for me Fontanella is a step towards helping people take care of themselves. It’s about taking proactive steps towards healthy living every single day.” says Dr Mike.
Dr Mike Pukanic is a graduate of the School of Medicine at the University of Zagreb (Croatia), he came to Sydney seeking opportunities for myself and my family, his wife Alka is also an MD. They have two grown sons and, now in semi-retirement they live in the Hunter Valley Region of NSW.
