Smart Brain Health Centre
We can help if you are:
- Struggling with poor memory, foggy thinking, lack of focus and concentration;
- Affected by Stress, Anxiety, Depression or other mood problems;
- Wanting to be proactive and improve your brain health because your parent, relative or friend has been diagnosed with dementia and you are worried yourself.
At this present moment in time, there is very little help or advice to be found that is positive if you have memory problems. If nothing is done about memory problems or they are ignored, then your memory will get worse. The Smart Brain Health Centre specialises in Mood and Memory Problems and improving Brain Health, and we have a lot of positive information that will help you.
The Smart Brain Health Centre addresses this great and important need in very positive ways as follows:
- Helpful and usable information contained in the International Award Winning Book “Smart Brain, Healthy Brain”
- The latest research updates and information on brain health in our Newsletters, E-Books and Blogs
- Our Workshops and Events
- Our comprehensive Smart Brain PREVENTION Program.
We are passionate about helping both Children and Adults who are affected by anxiety, depression, poor focus and concentration, behaviour problems, and memory problems. The Smart Brain PREVENTION Program have been developed to help improve your mood, memory and brain health, which will make a positive difference in your life now and in the future.

Highly Commended, Practitioner of the Year 2016
Louise Hallinan, Dip.Nutr., Dip.Hom. MATMS, MAHA
Louise Hallinan is the International Award-winning Author of the book “Smart Brain, Healthy Brain”, a fully qualified and accredited Natural Health Practitioner and has been working in the health industry for over 13 years. Louise has recently been awarded “Highly Commended for Practitioner of the Year” in the ATMS and Nature & Health Awards 2016, as recognition of her work by the Natural Health Industry.
Her mother, Alice, suffered with Alzheimer’s disease for many years and passed away in 2000. The personal experience has given Louise a deep understanding of the devastation caused by this disease. Louise was told by doctors at that time it was hereditary and that she may have a chance of getting it herself. Spurred on by this shock, Louise researched everything she could about Alzheimer’s disease to find what can be done to possibly avoid or prevent this from happening to her.
Louise co-wrote a research paper in 2003, “Alzheimer’s Disease: A homeopathic look at Treatment and Prevention”, a copy of which is in the Alzheimer’s Australia library in Sydney.
Louise has been researching memory problems and their causes over the past decade, to find the answers so many are looking for. All this information has been backed up by medical and scientific research studies and put together in her first book “Smart Brain, Healthy Brain”.
“Smart Brain, Healthy Brain” has recently won the Silver Medal in the ‘Living Now’ Book Awards (USA) in the Health and Wellness category.
“Smart Brain, Healthy Brain” has also been selected by Amazon.com as one of the “Best Books of the Month”.
Louise has also done many Radio Interviews not only in Australia but also has been interviewed internationally on Radio NewsTalk 650 CKOM Saskatchewan, Canada. Her Australian Radio interviews are Sydney: 2GB, 2UE, 2CC; Perth: 6PR, 6IX, Radio West and Curtin FM; Melbourne: Casey Radio 97.7FM and Hobart: 7HO. All of these can be found on the Media page on this website.
Louise has had many speaking engagements including being a Presenter at the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Sydney in May and October for the last 2 years. She has also presented to many Retirement Villages, Aged Care centres, Libraries and Community centres sharing information about the many things that can be done to improve your memory and brain health.
Alzheimer’s Australia have also welcomed “Smart Brain, Healthy Brain” by having copies available in each of their branch Libraries.
In honour of her mother, Louise established The Hallinan Memory Clinic in 2013 in Sydney. In late 2014 she established the Smart Brain Health Centre in order to help those experiencing memory problems, which has expanded to help those with mood problems such as anxiety and depression, which are a few of the causes of memory problems. Louise has developed the Smart Brain PREVENTION Program, utilising the knowledge gained from her in depth research.
Louise believes that there is so much that can be done to help those who are experiencing memory problems, or who may have been diagnosed with Younger Onset Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.
Louise’s immediate goal is
- Help reduce the numbers of children affected by anxiety, depression and behaviour problems and also those taking medications for these conditions;
- Give hope to those diagnosed with Younger Onset Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s Disease by helping them with positive information and knowledge through the Smart Brain PREVENTION Program.
- Her long term goal is to be able to reduce the numbers of people being diagnosed with Younger Onset Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease in the future.
It was from her own personal experience that led Louise into becoming a natural health practitioner. She contracted dysentery from drinking contaminated water and had chronic gastroenteritis for 6 years. She was told by doctors she had to “live with it”, but eventually regained good health after doing her own research. After such great results, Louise studied natural medicine and graduated with a Diploma of Nutrition in 2000 and Diploma of Homeopathy in 2004.
Louise established Forestville Natural Health and later Brookvale Natural Health treating various health conditions. Over those years she consistently found many people struggling with poor memory, foggy thinking and forgetfulness. This was an area that Louise had an intense concern and interest due to her mother having had Alzheimer’s disease.
