Clinical Naturopath BHSc. Western Medicine Herbalist MATMS
Naturopathy is both an art and a science…..
Cassandra Hilton is an expert nutritionist and naturopath in Sydney with over 10 years’ clinical experience. Cassandra offers private consultations and while she specialises in the health of women, mental wellness, gut health and anti-ageing, she is experienced in all areas of general naturopathic practice. Cassandra aims to give practical evidence-based advice to help all clients to feel their very best.
Passionate about the natural wisdom of the human body to heal, my expertise lies in combining a scientific and holistic approach in naturopath treatment protocols that are evidence-based and specifically tailored to you. This combination of a biomedical model of health and naturopathic training brings a rigor, natural curiosity and awareness of the infinite vastness of each person and our interactions with the environment.
Initially trained in clinical naturopathy, with postgraduate studies and continual research in genetics, dermatology, mental health, gut health, nutritional and environmental medicine to provide you the most up to date health programs to support your health.
I think that many people are just really beginning to understand that their health, their nutrition and what their bodies are exposed to throughout the environment can make a huge difference to their health outcomes. As a clinical naturopath, your unique nutritional biochemistry, methylation pathways and genetics and the interactions of your genome with your diet, lifestyle and environment influence your health, including how you absorb nutrients, food sensitivities and your response to exercise.
Naturopathic care commences with the identification and treatment of the root cause of your health problem, including interpretation of existing pathology, pre-existing conditions and extensive health history. In some patients, functional pathology assessment or genetic testing may be beneficial to ascertain the exact nature of the problem and take the guess work from your health so you can live life better.
Naturopathic treatment may include recommendations on diet, nutrition and lifestyle, including stress management, sleep hygiene and exercise. Practitioner only supplements to address nutrient deficiencies, herbal medicine to nurture and support health and dietary advice are individualised accordingly to your specific goals and health conditions.
Personalised nutrition supplements without sensitising ingredients, contaminants or fillers can be uniquely formulated, and designed for you, optimising key nutrients individual to your needs, to ensure you have the best start to the day, every day.
Cassandra is passionate about inspiring and educating people on healthy living in the modern world in a way that is realistic and achievable for everyone.

Inner and Outer Beauty
I absolutely love what I do and have been looking for a way to reach more women and allow them to take control of their health, hormones and skin for many years. With a deep understanding of what the skin requires to naturally age and function healthy, incorporating both inner and outer beauty paradigms, Cassandra launched the natural clinical and luxurious line of skincare Ocinium.
Ocinium was founded with a simple goal: to create intelligent, effective natural skincare with the guiding principle of providing the skin with the cosmetic ingredients it requires to perform at its best…and nothing that it doesn’t.
