Sara Rooney


Sara-croppedSara Rooney – BSc (Hons) in Herbal Medicine:  Sara is a firm advocate of integrated health and the benefits of taking a holistic approach. Medical herbalists try to find the root cause of a person’s illness rather than purely addressing their symptoms. Sara believes in finding health solutions unique to the patient by providing treatment plans with which they feel confident and comfortable.  Sara works with the patient  to make important nutritional and lifestyle changes to improve their health in the long term.

Sara’s interest in medicinal plants stems from working on an Amazonian rainforest reserve in Ecuador after completing a degree in Anthropology and Spanish. In Ecuador, she assisted the local Shaman in the propagation of medicinal plants from the rainforest and observed the  medicinal qualities of plants used in a community with little access to Western drugs.

Sara specializes in hormonal health, adrenal fatigue, stress management, fertility issues and digestive complaints. She has recently published a paper in the international Journal of Herbal Medicine published by Elsevier, on the role of Herbal Medicine in the treatment of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

She has clinics at the Tree of Life Integrated Health Centre in Brighton and also offers clinics in London and is an experienced retreat manager working  both in the UK and in Europe.
