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 $25 for a weeks supply of liquid herbs and nutritional supplements which range from $20-$60 (on average).

I’m on a ‘budget’ to save money for a holiday ✈️ 🍕 🍝 🇮🇹.
I use italics as we have the funds but I thought it might be fun to tie in saving, planning & learning the language.

If you think having a Naturopath go through your food diary is tough imagine having an 11 year old go through your credit card statement 😳

It's actually been fantastic (don’t tell her that!) and I can see first hand the benefit of accountability - and you get that when you see a Naturopath!

Even better though, it has made me really reconsider the best bang for buck nutritious foods. More in a blog post on this soon.

Going through some old vegetarian books on the hunt for plant based budget meals I stumbled across this reference to eating avocado with Cointreau & sugar.

Not budget friendly & would probably give Bernard Salt a heart attack but it’s the most intriguing combo I’ve come across for a while 😉 I scoured the cupboard but zilch Cointreau 🤷‍♀️

Has anyone tried this?
