Hi, I’m Sarah Mclachlan, a Naturopath with a passion for helping mums to thrive.

Like you, I am many things to many people

For you, I am a Naturopath. Nutritionist. Herbalist. Breastfeeding Counsellor. Most importantly, I am a mother. So I get it. I know what it is like to be deep in the trenches of parenting babies, toddlers, children and teens. I understand how hard it can be to focus on you or to make food and lifestyle changes in your home.

There are many demands on you

Leaving you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted and increasing your risk of chronic health problems. Potentially, you may already have chronic health problems from these stressors.

Naturopathic consultations

Take a deep dive in to your health and get to the bottom of what’s contributing to your current symptoms. I spend lots of time with you, getting to know your body’s strengths, nurture points, and the messages it is sending through symptoms and physical signs. They say knowledge is power. My aim is to empower you with the knowledge and an understanding of what’s going on in your body and why, so you can take control of your health and wellness now and in to the future.

acute consultations with Sarah

Want to help speed your recovery from a virus or help the kids stop coughing all night long? Acute consultations are available for those wanting Naturopathic support with an illness like (but not limited to) cold and flu; hand, foot and mouth; molluscum contagiosum; ear infections; hay fever; warts; cold sores; tonsilitis; thrush; or recovery from gastro. This short, 20-minute consultation focuses only on your current presenting symptoms rather than taking a full look at your health history.

Akeso Health workshops

I love sharing my knowledge with you in a way that makes it easy to understand and implement in to your home. Workshops are run regularly from my clinic in Sassafras, Victoria, but you’ll also find me popping up as a guest speaker at other events and conferences in the Dandenong Ranges. Topics include gut health; fermenting food; kombucha; eating for energy; kicking sugar; beating burnout; women’s hormonal health; and acute naturopathic care at home.

Don’t let stress, overwhelm, fatigue and anxiety stop you from living a happy and healthy life.
