Hello there. I am Sarah Woolner, a naturopath practicing in Brookvale on Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches.
Our mission at The Natural Medicine Tree is simple. It is to provide reliable health information to educate and empower those who know that change is necessary, but are unsure of how or where to start. We translate the latest health research into actionable steps that you can weave into your own daily routine. Ultimately, we aim to inspire actionable and sustainable changes to health behaviour.
I am a classic introvert, so talking about myself does not come naturally. Actually, I am much more comfortable listening than talking.
Exploring nature replenishes my energy and I feel most at home by the ocean. Salt water and sunshine are daily essentials for me. Yoga keeps me calm and centred. More recently, i have discovered reformer pilates. I LOVE it!
In the kitchen, I love creating simple and wholesome meals. Raspberry and rosemary is one of my favourite flavour combinations (A gelato flavour I discovered in San Gimignano in Italy). Salted dark chocolate is my idea of a sweet treat. I also love a good green veggie juice.
Sustainable food and lifestyle practices and generally being kind to the Earth are also high on my priority list. I strive to live a simpler life and adore the minimalist movement.
My role as a Naturopathic Practitioner
As a naturopathic practitioner, part of my job is to investigate and understand the complexities of your health concerns and assess your individual health needs. This involves in-depth questioning and discussion around your health history and symptoms, as well as physical assessments and pathology testing. create a specific treatment plan that works for you.
How I approach health & wellbeing
Good health has a different meaning for each of us. We are all unique in what It is not about being perfect and putting in 100% all the time.
I like to take a minimalist approach to health -- keeping things simple and sustainable.
My food philosophy
Food is life. It provides energy and nourishment
