Sandra is a clinical Naturopath, Nutritionist and Acupuncturist with a strong interest and passion in IVF support, reproductive health, natural fertility, pregnancy support and hormone balancing.
Sandra looks at the various factors contributing to infertility and hormone imbalances. She believes everyone’s response to such factors is different which may or may not affect fertility and hormone health. It also cannot be ignored that those who are affected are often left without answers as to why trying to conceive has become so difficult, and why their body is not regulating or processing their hormones correctly.
Sandra incorporates the complementary therapies of Naturopathy, Nutritional Medicine and Chinese Medicine as part of her Acupuncture treatments to give patients the highest level of personalized care. Diet and supplementation advice is also recommended as part of an ongoing service to ensure optimal health.
Natural Fertility & IVF Cycles
Sandra works closely with couples trying to conceive, and will combine Naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine to tailor supplements to your cycle and history. Sandra has been involved in IVF support for over 16 years and understands which supplements can be used during an IVF cycle.
Sandra provides reviews to see what changes have been experienced and can tweak supplements or herbs to further support and enhance reproductive health.
Sandra has a particular interest in improving egg and sperm quality, and this comes down to her knowledge in nutritional medicine. Sandra promotes products that have TGA approved ingredients that have undergone clinical trials to show benefit and efficacy in relation to IVF improvement in egg and sperm quality, natural fertility and gynaecological conditions.
Sandra believes in looking at all the factors both for female and male fertility and recommends a simple, easy to follow nutritional treatment plan based on supporting fertility health.
Sandra has also had extensive experience and ongoing success with supporting hormone imbalances.

What is involved in a Naturopathic consult via Skype/telehealth?
Part 1. Consultation (30 minutes)
The first part is dedicated to going through your health questionnaire as well as any other relevant information that Sandra may require. It is important at this time for Sandra to get a good understanding of your health goals and how you are feeling not just physically, but also how your health concerns may be impacting you mentally or emotionally.
Part 2. Recommendations (30 minutes)
The second part occurs once the consultation is finished and involves Sandra making a final review of your consultation notes as well as reviewing relevant blood tests or results and formulating a treatment and diet plan.
Our reception staff will organise all the treatment plan information and send it to you via email along with any blood test or supplement recommendations Sandra may have. Normally we recommend a follow up appointment to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes at that time. Any supplements that are recommended by Sandra can be posted out to you or arranged to be collected at the clinic.
15 minute or 30 minute review appointments can be organised at the start of a menstrual cycle to have specific supplements or herbs sent out. Reviews are also recommended upon confirmed pregnancy to direct you to support for your pregnancy health.
Sandra will work closely with you to help make the necessary changes in diet, lifestyle and nutrition to help create the beneficial changes needed to support reproductive health.
Due to Sandra’s busy Acupuncture practice, she is only available for naturopathic support via Telehealth at this time. More information can be found on our Telehealth link, alternatively please feel free to contact the clinic to organise a Naturopathic consultation with Sandra.
