Sandi’s Health Journey

The direction of health was started at a young age of seven. “Coming from six children, my parents always preferred to have us treated as naturally as possible. When experiencing chronic pain, I was taken to a curly-haired man, who looked into my eyes and at my tongue, stuck some needles in me and told me to change my diet. From the day I felt better, I knew I would pursue my path to learn about health”.

After completing a degree in Health Science (Complementary Medicine and Acupuncture) Sandi was fortunate enough for the renowned healer, Paul Sherriff (who treated and inspired Sandi at a young age), and his naturopathic partner Anne Southern, to provide an internship, teaching her an abundance of priceless knowledge.

What is Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is defined as the prevention and treatment of disease through methods that support and encourages the body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms. Naturopathic physicians seek to restore and maintain optimal health and to identify and remove the causative factors of disease. Additionally, they support and facilitate the bodies, while removing obstacles that allow healing and recovery to progress.Traditional chinese herbal medicine ingredients, close-up
