What is Naturopathy?
What is it all about?
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to health and well-being, addressing all aspects of the individual, mind, body and spirit. Naturopaths aim to determine the underlying cause of disease and do not rely on symptomatic treatment alone. A combination of natural therapies such as herbal & nutritional medicine, diet & lifestyle coaching, mind body medicine and flower essence therapy are used to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal.

About Samantha Porter BHSc (Nat)
Natural Health Practitioner & Naturopath
Hi, I am Samantha and I am a degree qualified Naturopathic practitioner, practising in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne.
I am passionate about holistic medicine, the art and science of natural healing and supporting my clients to maximise their health potential.
Using an evidence based model of health care and a client focused approach I integrate a range of therapies such as herbal medicine, nutraceuticals, food as medicine and mind-body medicine to develop individualised treatment plans.
I love the detective work involved in the Naturopathic process, uncovering what is really going on, identifying the root cause and educating and supporting my clients throughout their health journey.
I'm also a little bit obsessed with research, you'll often find me with my nose in a research paper. Knowledge is empowering and I strongly believe there is always more to learn.
My areas of special interest include histamine intolerance, anxiety, fatigue and sexual health.
