So what makes Sari Young’s naturopathy services different from other health professionals?
-Sari’s passion lies in helping people help themselves achieve their own potential. Scientific, evidence-based practice, is combined with traditional, natural healing methods that have been proven successful over centuries.
-Sari treats multiple body systems concurrently. Disease names are simply a label given to a set of symptoms, yet many symptoms overlap and do not fit neatly into a diagnostic box. By treating multiple body systems, this inadvertently alleviates many other ‘unrelated’ symptoms simultaneously. No two people with the same labelled diagnosis will experience the same symptoms. Therefore, a tailor made treatment plan specific to their individual health needs and goals is created.
-Sari aims to support you in improving your nutritional health, balancing your mineral levels, and helping you to enjoy and passionately live your life- because it is the only life you have and you are living it now!
Remember that the person is treated, not the condition. Sari is excited to help treat anyone who chooses to be her partner in health!
Naturopathic care is offered to the very young to the very old, and all ages in between, using evidence-based alternative and complementary medical treatment. Your whole family is welcome at Sari’s Natural Medicine.

Initially felt overwhelmed…making changes slowly over a period of 12 weeks …my daughter was able to adapt
My daughter has struggled with her health since birth and I’ve been looking for someone to support us in our journey to good health. We started the fundamentals challenge, which really helped us ease into such a new diet and way of thinking. As a stay at home Mum of 2 children, I initially felt overwhelmed by how I would be able to incorporate all of the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes, but by making changes slowly over a period of 12 weeks I was able to slowly make the changes and more importantly, my daughter was able to adapt.
We are continuing to use Sari’s services as she has been such a great support throughout our journey so far and I really trust her knowledge and judgement surrounding my daughters health.
I would recommend the Fundamentals Challenge to slowly make small changes to lifestyle and diet making it easier for long term changes.
Suicide ideation. Extremely anxious. Extreme fatigue… My life has completely turned around…I feel better, happier and have more energy than I ever have in my whole life.
I started seeing Sari one year ago after researching Dr Wilson's method of development healing programs. I was very interested in how the hair mineral tests could show a multitude of health issues and imbalances, as well as emotional imbalances. When I started the healing program I was very depressed to the point of suicidal ideation. I was extremely anxious and just functioning to get through work, look after my son and get through the day. It was nearly too much. I had extreme fatigue everyday. I desperately needed help. I always thought I was relatively healthy however the development program was so nourishing it was unlike any program or diet I had tried before. The individualisation alongside the detox protocols, it really was all encompassing. Initially the program was quite challenging. I experienced a lot of differing detox symptoms. I did have faith in the program though and kept going. I am so glad I did. Today I am so happy. I wake up in the morning with energy, feeling so full of life and excited for my day. My life has completely turned around and there are so many great opportunities popping up for me. I feel better, happier and have more energy than I ever have in my whole life. Sari is fantastic to work with. So patient, kind, compassionate and understanding. She really guided me through the difficult times knowing I would heal. Every day I keep feeling better and better. Thank you Sari. I'm excited for my life and what's to come.
I recommend Sari's Natural Medicine. Sari is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, kind and understanding. The development programs that she teaches are fantastic, a complete and deep healing. I would recommend it to everyone.
Feel better, in many ways, very soon after starting…
I found Sari to be very easy to deal with in our practitioner/ patient relationship. This was complemented by her thorough, no nonsense manner when giving advice or suggestions. She was understanding of the challenges faced by those on the Nutritional Balancing Program and, especially in the early stages, was very supportive and encouraging.
Being an older, 73 year old, man did not pose any problems for me. Her understanding of the many facets of the programs of Dr Larry Wilson was extensive.
I started to feel better, in many ways, very soon after starting the program. Sari really went the extra mile to get to the bottom of the health challenges I had and those highlighted by the results of the analysis of my hair sample.
I found the regular health challenges she sent on a regular basis to be most helpful [FUNDAMENTALS CHALLENGE].
I highly recommend Sari to anyone wanting to improve their health and their overall development.
I would recommend Sari to anyone I know who is prepared to make the effort to follow the Nutritional Balancing Program and the amazing teachings of Dr Larry Wilson.
Significant benefits… Gone from strength to strength
Sari has been my health advisor for about 18 months to 2 years. I was suffering from malaise poor energy and poor digestion. During that time she has been warm helpful kind and encouraging. I have received significant benefits over this time and have set my lifestyle and eating to a new and improved pattern. She has always been responsive and full of knowledge in her field. As a pensioner I can no longer afford the ongoing expenses of the program but if I had access to more finance I would not hesitate to continue with her. I will keep up my abundance of vegetables and general practices she taught me as I am much better for it. I believe I am functioning well on the general program and being 70 years of age this style of eating and living is extending my ability to participate more fully in life. She has a lot to offer and I would say to anyone struggling to gain energy and health she will put you on the right track. Often medical practitioners can only speculate as to why there are negative symptoms and yet no apparent condition to treat as was my case. It isn't always easy but then anything worthwhile always takes effort and changes. If you are ok with this then she will lead you on a fascinating health journey. I will miss her advice. She has taught me so much. Most of it will stay with me and guide my understanding of health in general.
I would most definitely recommend Sari to my friends and family because she is gentle and yet strong and her knowledge is well developed and researched. She knows what she is talking about and this is evident when speaking to her. She has often solved some physical dilemma for me and I have gone from strength to strength. I like her approach which uses our own body healing and common sense as the basis for the nutritional balancing system.
Powerful program with such a wonderful practitioner
I had initially found Sari and her services online whilst in a desperate search for answers to my long list of debilitating symptoms. I have too many to count from extreme fatigue, severe digestive problems, chronic constipation,candida, severe mood swings, lots of emotional & mental issues, anxiety & panic, depression, hormonal imbalances, PCOS, amenorrhea, racing racing mind & thoughts and many more. I had seen so many different practitioners and tried so many "treatments" to no avail prior to starting the NB program & was truly relieved to have found someone in my city to practice & offer it. I started on the nutritional balancing program and have been continuing on it for just over a year now & i can confidently say & attest that deep healing does occur. It is a very gradual and slow progress however knowing that having a build up of many toxins over the years possibly since birth is not an overnight fix. Sari truly has helped me to understand this and her constant reassurance, kindness, compassion & support helps keep me going. She is always there to answer or clarify any questions or concerns without delay. I sure have had many myself and just knowing that i have a practitioner who has a geniune care & the best of interest in her clients like Sari does is such a comforting feeling especially in such dark & lonely times. She definately is someone i can trust to consult with any concerns i may have and would highly reccomended her to anyone. I am so grateful to have found Sari. There definately are times where i do fall short off the program with diet etc but i now treat it as a learning experience rather than beating myself up for my downfalls & just focus on getting back up & continuing on the path as best as i can again regardless. Most of our consultations have been via phone & there has been no issues whats so ever. Overall, i can say that my symptoms are improving & its also nice to see how much progress i have made with the hair test results for some motivation. I know i still have a long way to go but i have peace of mind knowing that i have found such a powerful program with such a wonderful practitioner guiding and supporting me through it all. So grateful for you Sari :).
I would highly recommend Sari Young to friends & family as mentioned in my description above.
sleep well, most of my digestive issues and abdominal pain have subsided
Burnout syndrome became an overpowering reality around 2017-18 as my digestive function began to break down, I was plagued by increasingly frequent abdominal pain and IBS symptoms, I slept for 10 hours a day without feeling rested and I was in a deep rut, spending thousands of dollars on doctors, naturopaths, various testing and supplements. All of whom more or less tried a shotgun approach, some loosely based on mineral panels and hair mineral analysis.
Until I decided to give Mineral Balancing a go and booked a meeting with Sari.
Nutritional Balancing had caught my eye for a long time, and I was very happy to find Sari close enough to Melbourne and I am happy to say that she has outdone every other doctor and naturopath in terms of treating and providing support to allow me to truly begin fixing many of my digestive and burnout symptoms.
Having personally studied the human body and physiology, I have not come across any other system that is as comprehensive, holistic and made accessible to me as a patient, and I have done several HTMA tests with different naturopaths and HTMA organizations, and ARL analytical labs, that Sari works with, has by far been the most comprehensive and detailed of them all, especially added with the personalized guidance of Sari.
I have had, and still have, the occasional hiccup and fallback into poor patterns, but that is to be expected, and I've only been able to fall back in the first place because I have become well enough to afford it.
Today, I sleep well, most of my digestive issues and abdominal pain have subsided while adhering properly to the guidelines and supplements, and I am confident that as long as the program is followed, health and wellbeing is a result.
Especially appreciated is the fact that consults can be done online via skype once the program is set up, and she is available to answer mails and queries as well as part of the packages.
I highly recommend Sari and especially the mineral balancing program. It's not cheap, and there is a lot of supplements on top, but if you stick with it and follow through and heed the wisdom, it works because it's tailored to each individuals needs at the moment in time and is updated with time to address the changing and improving body as well.
Personalized nutrition profiling and treatment is finally here, and Sari is doing us a great favor by delivering it one person at a time.
insight, understanding and encouragement
I was drawn to Sari’s Natural Medicine, as Sari has qualifications in 3 health fields, which gives an in-depth understanding into health and illness. Sari’s health journey gave me confidence that she would be working from experience with Nutritional Balancing, along with Nursing and Naturopathy. My health challenges are deep seated chronic conditions and heavy metal toxicity from copper pipes in the home. As well as many years ago Copper Sulphate was added to the house tank to kill off algae. Then some 30 years later, the copper load every day when I showered, just sent me into a downward spiral. Now I understand how metals impact health and the mind. We take our health for granted until we lose it.
Sari’s report gave me insight, understanding and encouragement. There is light ahead. Sari speaks from experience, knowledge, and deep caring for her fellow human being, as she is a healer.
I no longer experience any seasonal allergies or anxiety
Before I started on a development program, I had bad seasonal allergies for about 7-8 months each year for 16 years, as well as fatigue and anxiety at times. I have had Sari as my practitioner for a little over 3 years, been on the program for about 6 and a half years. The program takes some effort and commitment and trust, especially at first, but the results are worth it. I no longer experience any seasonal allergies (I don't use any remedies) or anxiety, and am a much more positive person now. Life still has it's challenges but I am able to respond more effectively and positively to them. I have moved to the country and secured a good job, two long held goals I couldn't seem to achieve before.
I have enjoyed having Sari as my practitioner, as she is very knowlegeable, and easy to communicate with. I choose to see her in person but she can also do telephone or skype appointments. She is a Dr Wilson approved practitioner which is very important for the proper understanding and implementation of the program. Doing the program properly isn't always intuitive and one needs a good guide, another reason to choose Sari on your healing journey.
I would recommend Naturopath Sari Young to friends and family as the program she offers helped heal me deeply, and she is enjoyable to work with, and is experienced with Development Science.
His behaviours has improved markedly
Before seeing Sari my toddler son Xavier although having pretty good health had some eczema and was somewhat hyperactive and clingy. He also craved sugar and carbohydrates a lot.
Xav is now 4 years old and since being on NB his behaviour has improved markedly. He is more calm and easy to reason with. He has been assessed by a family therapist who said he not only meets but exceeds many of his developmental milestones. He has an excellent vocabulary and articulates himself well. He is never sick and has a full set of beautiful white teeth. His energy levels are seemingly endless however he is the first to say if he needs a rest or if it’s time to go to bed because he is tired. Sari is lovely to communicate with, she is kind and gentle and understanding. She wears a ready smile and always tried to help in whatever way she can. Being on nutritional Balancing takes the uncertainty out of parenting in a way as I can be assured that if Xavier is off or his behaviour changes I am doing the best I can from a nutritional and lifestyle point of view and the change could be a healing reaction or a need of change of program, both of which I have Sari to support us through. We love to visit Sari with the scenic views of Castlemaine surrounds and on the days where we have less time it’s very convenient to have a Skype appointment at home or even in the park while the kids play.
I would recommend Sari because she is a wealth of knowledge on natural health, healing and wellbeing. She is non judgmental and a good listener and gives the best service to her clients.
Energy, sleep, mood, clarity of mind have improved markedly
I initially contacted Sari as I was burnt out after my body was depleted from a long term battle with chronic illness (cured prior to engaging Sari) and a difficult university course. My first HTMA showed I was in a four lows pattern as well as being overloaded with various, heavy metals. Three months have passed since my initial test and my energy, sleep, mood and clarity of mind have improved markedly. My second test showed I was out of the four lows pattern. After experiencing such drastic changes in a short period of time, I am confident that continuation of the program will result in a return to optimal health.
During our Skype consultations Sari has been great to work with, as she is easy to get along with, caring, empathetic and a great communicator. Above all else she is very knowledgable about the program and confident in its ability to promote deep and lasting healing.
Because of Sari my quality of life continues to improve each week and I will definitely be recommending her to friends and family in the future.
Please do not hesitate to contact Sari if you are considering embarking upon the nutritional balancing program. You will not regret it!
wealth of knowledge…
Sari has been my nutritional balancing practitioner for nearly two years now. She has been a great help in interpreting my hair tests, and clearly has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to nutritional balancing and healing in general. Sari has a very kind and nurturing nature and this really shines through when dealing with her patients. It's obvious that Sari has benefited from the nutritional balancing program in her own life, and this experiential knowledge coupled with years of being a practitioner make her the perfect guide to walk others through the process.
I look forward to continuing to work with Sari on my own health journey, and know that I am in good hands.
R&R Challenge enabled me to introduce the concepts of NB at a steady pace
I very much enjoyed the R&R challenge. It enabled me to introduce the concepts of nutritional balancing at a steady pace, which helped me a great deal as I was very busy at the time when I began it. Made everything far less overwhelming.
I would recommend the R&R Challenge to family and friends, but would especially recommend the R&R Challenge to those who are very busy or easily overwhelmed. I rate the R&R Challenge 5 out of 5!
Energy increased dramatically, as well as my overall well-being.
I have to admit that this is one of the hardest programs I have ever tried, BUT THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN SO WORTH IT. My mineral readings just keep getting better and my heavy metals load have gone down dramatically. My energy has increased dramatically, as well as my overall well-being. A few times I have felt that I was going to be ill, the knowledge I have acquired through following this program have made me recover very quickly or was able to stop the illness dead in its tracks. And it is getting easier to follow with time, as the protocols become more and more a part of my lifestyle.
Sari is an incredibly knowledgeable holistic practitioner, a wonderful communicator who walks her talk.
I highly recommend her to everyone.
wonderful resource and motivational tool
Sari is very knowledgeable, supportive, non-judgemental and genuinely caring. The 12 week Challenge is a wonderful resource and motivational tool to have for this healing journey. It not only gives you the information of what to do, but also it helps explain why you are doing it and how to implement the changes. The weekly email was well timed, giving you enough time to read through the information, incorporate the changes and establish a routine before the next email arrived. The gradual implementation of some of the lifestyle or food changes each week made it manageable and not to daunting and the chart a great tool and reminder of your weekly goals. I highly recommend the R&R Challenge for anyone genuinely wanting to undertake and incorporate the NB Program into your life, it's a fantastic tool.
consultations.. by phone… worked well
All of my consultations with Sari have been by phone as we live in different States. This has worked well for me as I travel a fair bit and it is very convenient being able to schedule a consultation wherever I am... the results have been excellent.
the results have been excellent
I was reassured by Sari's confidence and faith in the Nutritional Balancing program and was very happy to find a practitioner who had specific and expert knowledge in treating adrenal fatigue. As she had tried many different methods for treating adrenal fatigue and had great confidence in this program, I was happy to follow it, and the results have been excellent.
At each consultation, Sari gives me feedback on my progress, based on the mineral analysis of my hair tests and is able to give her expert interpretation of how my recovery is progressing. Detoxing is a complex, long term process and I am grateful to have the supervision and reassurance of such an experienced practitioner to guide me and keep me committed to my recovery.
The diet recommended by Dr Wilson is easy to follow, and the added benefits are that it helps with weight management, digestion and keeping things moving.
I feel much much better since being on the program and no longer have the symptoms that first brought me to this treatment.
Anxiety, stress and insomnia….No longer have the symptoms
I have been in treatment with Sari Young for the past three years for Adrenal Fatigue. When I first found Sari I was suffering from anxiety, stress and insomnia as a result of my adrenal fatigue. I used to wake up most morning with a racing heartbeat, and found myself feeling stressed by even the smallest time pressure, such as when cooking eggs.
I no longer have the symptoms that first brought me to this treatment. However I am happy to continue with the program as Sari can see in the results that my health is still improving and I am keen to raise my health to an even better level.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sari as a practitioner, particularly for someone dealing with adrenal fatigue.
I have found Sari to be always professional, supportive and knowledgeable, and under her guidance I have followed the program for many months, feeling progressively better over the period.
the results are brilliant.
Thanks for all your help and the wonderful program. I’ve got to say it’s very difficult to do it 100%, but even at the level I/we have been doing it at, the results are brilliant. In every way, I/we are so much better physically, but also mentally. Once again, thank you for all your help.
Instrumental in my successful implementation…
For me, the R&R Challenge was instrumental in my successful implementation of the lifestyle overhaul that is Nutritional balancing! I like to jump into things straight away, and I can see now that it would have been too overwhelming to make all the changes at once. R&R helped me to slow down (a recurring theme these days) and take one step at a time. This package is all the things I like. It's methodical, practical, and means you don't have to think too much - just read the new email each week. A really helpful aspect for me, was having the daily 'to do' list, to print out. The best part by far, however, was having the support of Sari. It can be a daunting time in the beginning, with so many questions and symptoms. She truly has your back, and it was such a comfort to know that help and advice is only an email away. I would definitely recommend the R&R for other new to the NB program. It not only makes the journey feel stable and systematic, but it's all the info you need in one spot.
I liked the distribution of the challenges across the weeks very very well. At the beginning people have more drive and there was more to do and less when I became a little less motivated. The order of the challenges was great. I have learned lots and have incorporated lots- even having carrots daily.
