About Naturopathy

Naturopathy is the practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human mind, body, and soul. By integrating conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies and traditional medicines, naturopathy treats the patient’s mental, emotional and physical states for a lasting effect.


The foundation of Naturopathy is the philosophy of the healing power of nature. This means the body has its own innate healing energy and with the help of naturopathic treatment, the body can repair itself and recover from illness if it is in a healthy and supportive environment.

Sanatio (Pronounced /sa…na..ti.o/)

Originates from the Latin word for healing. Sanatio was actually one of the oldest medical healing and literature books. Naturopaths assist the body’s ability to heal. Sanatio resonates with the ethos and philosophy of Naturopathy.

Sydney Naturopath Lindsay has been working as a Naturopath for over 10 years. With the use of traditional medicine coupled with the latest scientific research, Lindsay helps clients regain their health through diet and lifestyle changes, nutrition and herbal medicine.

Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition is the science of food, the nutrients in foods and how the body uses those nutrients. It includes the process of ingestion, digestion, absorption, metabolism, transport, storage and excretion of those nutrients.

Nutrition principles are applied throughout the life cycle from the time of conception to our later years. Areas of nutrition emphasis include pregnancy, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and the ‘older adult. The relationship between diet and health is strong – we all know when we eat healthily, we feel good!

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It is a medicine made exclusively from plants. It is used in all societies and is common in all cultures.

Herbal medicines include herbs, herbal materials, herbal preparations, and finished herbal products that contain parts of plants or other plant materials as active ingredients.


Naturopaths are trained to employ safe and effective natural therapies that will support and stimulate the healing power of nature in the gentlest, least invasive and most efficient manner possible. Naturopaths use various methods to assist in the healing process, including Herbal medicine, nutrition/diet,  and lifestyle recommendations.
