Hi and welcome,
Thank you for booking your naturopathy appointment with us and we are looking forward to supporting you with your health.
We have prepared some paperwork for you to fill in before your consultation. Please click on the relevant button below to download your first consult form. It's best to complete your form early and email it back to the clinic so that we can have a look at it before your consult but if this is not possible. If there is anything that you are unsure about on the form, please leave it blank and you can discuss it further at your appointment. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Our Unique Approach
Food can be supportive on its own – it’s essential we get the foundation right, but this is only one aspect of what we do. Through a holistic combination of nutrition, herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle modifications, we address whole body systems (gut, skin, immune & reproductive system), and offer a greater depth of enquiry into the body and person.
A person’s symptoms come about because of a disruption to harmony within the body, otherwise known as homeostasis, the body’s inbuilt mechanism to return to a natural state of balance. However, over time and for a variety of reasons, including genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors, an imbalance can develop within a particular organ, or within or between body systems. The resulting symptoms and signs of imbalance do not necessarily produce clinically recognised conditions. In other words, you know you don’t feel quite right; you have dis-ease, not a medically diagnosed disease.
Naturopathy aims to restore balance, aiding the body’s natural homeostatic process, and can therefore be applied to a wide range of concerns (see below). It can also be used to help provide support for many chronic conditions.
Sandi Cooper's Experience
as a naturopath
Sandi completed her Bachelor of Health science in Naturopathy in 2002. She has been in private practice ever since and as such has over 15 years clinical experience. Sandi is highly devoted to continuing to deepen her understanding and knowledge of health and natural approaches to disease. She is regularly researching various conditions to support her patients, attending conferences and seminars, and invests a significant amount of time and money into doing so. At times, she’s found speaking to small groups or running workshops on various topics such as gut health, healthy eating and children’s nutrition.
A major focus of Naturopathy is wellness, and prevention of future disease. Good health is so much more than just the absence of disease. To many, being healthy is not having a diagnosed medical condition, or simply being able to get up and keep going each day regardless of the quality of how they can do this. At Medicinal Healing we truly believe that wellness is so much more than not being sick.
