Natalie Cook (President)

Natalie CookNatalie is a very practical naturopath and herbalist who completed her studies at the Southern School of Natural Therapies in Melbourne.

Her degree in Health Science brought together the best of traditional medicine with contemporary science, manifesting in Natalie's holistic approach as a practitioner. She believes the effectiveness of naturopathic treatment stems from this holism that capitalises on the body’s innate capacity for healing and is tailored to our own unique situations and requirements.

"My philosophy is one of setting realistic goals and education is always an important part of my practice".

Natalie has practiced in an integrative medical clinic for a number of years incorporating medical allergy testing and now lectures in herbal medicine, nutrition and clinical diagnosis.  With a background in the corporate sector, Natalie understands the pressures of urban living and the practicalities of addressing the health issues that arise from this and hopes to bring this blended career experience to the NHAA board.

Outside of work, you might find Natalie enjoying good food or good music with good friends. Or trying to fix her garden to better reflect the naturopath she is!
