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).

We've all lost an important key? More than once if you are like me!
Imagine being a Naturopath who can't get into her dispensary to fill orders ....

I've turned the house upside down, I've come across some things that have made me smile (old watch, photos), but still no keys.

I've literally done a half marathon walking up and down Puckle St this morning.

The usually helpful lock code means squat and unable to be replaced at the locksmith.

Currently contemplating my DIY skills with a drill and youtube after one last search of the house.

I attended a seminar this week and listened to the wisdom of 4 Naturopaths with the collective wisdom of over 100 years experience.
The biggest takeaway was to imagine a world that was ran on Naturopathic principles ... and that they could apply to most problems/industries.

The naturopathic philosophy for moments like this?
Do no harm: don't beat yourself up for a silly mistake
Identify the cause: too busy!
Teachable moment: be more mindful!
Prevention: cut a spare!

Rx: Loud music. Hot tea. Optimism. Drill.
