What is Naturopathy?

mind, body, spirit, soul and you - balance or wellbeing concept - handwriting on colorful sticky notes against grained wood

Naturopathy is a complementary health profession with a focus on holistically treating you as an individual and addressing your health concerns. Sam will take your detailed case history and work towards identifying the underlying cause(s) of your ill health, rather than just treating your symptoms. One of the major philosophies of Naturopathic health care is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Conditions treated

Naturopath’s provide supportive treatment for a wide range of chronic and acute conditions including: fatigue, lack of energy, low mood, poor concentration, sleep issues, coughs, colds, sinus, hayfever, gastrointestinal problems such as IBS, Crohn’s, Fructose malabsorption, GORD, reproductive issues such as PMS, PCOS & endometriosis, weight loss, preconception care, diabetes, hypertension & high cholesterol.


Sam Marks is a Moonee Ponds based Naturopath (Melbourne). Treatment is multifaceted and varies depending on your condition & individual circumstances. Herbal medicine or nutritional supplements may be prescribed and range in price from $8 for teas through to $30 for a weeks supply of liquid herbs and nutritional supplements which range from $20-$80 (on average).

Some people love the office stationery delivery.
And that's cool.
I love herb delivery day. Especially when it’s ones I haven’t tried before 🤓🧙

I'm trialling Mexican valerian 😴. I've avoided stocking regular valerian (Valeriana officinalis) as it can have a paradoxically stimulant effect in some individuals.

It certainly tastes & smells better than valerian. Mind you I realise my judgement on a herb tasting ‘ok’ 🤷‍♀️ is vastly different to many of my patients. Or my daughter 🙄

Edit: ZOMG. No it does not smell better. Needs to come with a warning ‘open outdoors’

Sending big virtual hugs to everyone in Melbourne tonight as we head into a 5 day 'circuit breaker' lockdown.

I don't know about you, but heading into this one seems tougher than the past

Stay well x

Ah Sundays. Often not 100% relaxing but a mix of housework, work and pre-anticipatory thoughts of the week ahead (I've blogged previously about Sunday Fundays v Sunday Scaries here: http://www.nurturenaturopathy.com.au/sunday-funday-v-sunday-scaries/)

Sunday mornings though are enshrined in using up the fridge leftovers in a breakfast of champions, a cup of earl grey tea and trying to finish the newspapers from the day before.

You can't see all the veg glory because it's hidden in the omelette but we have left over ham (schools back), olives, green veg, tomatoes and herbs. It will keep me fuelled for hours.

This is accidentally a 4 egg (!) omelette as I was on a roll cracking eggs (normally 3) and has approx 200g filling. And the filling can be most things in your fridge aside lettuce & cukes. I tend to overfill. Every Single Time.
Mixture goes into a medium hot pan and the heat is then turned down to a simmer. Goes against cooking convention but it works for me.

Hope your Sunday is shaping up to be a good one.

Stay well.
