Welcome Dr. Sarah Wulkan – ND, BSc

At the NSWC, we aim to give our patients as many options as possible for holistic and integrative health care. This past month, our team of practitioners has grown into an even bigger family, with the addition of Dr. Sarah Wulkan.

With over fifteen years of personal and professional experience in the health and fitness industry, Dr. Wulkan has helped individuals optimize their physical performance and body composition. By using the many techniques and treatments available to the Naturopathic profession, she is able to determine an effective treatment plan to reach your goals. These methods may include hormone testing, food sensitivity testing, and cortisol testing. Dr. Wulkan has also gained expertise in treating injury rehabilitation for chronic pain mangement, using tools such as acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Wulkan ‘s philosophy as a Naturopathic doctor is to examine all possible contributing factors to a condition, rather than simply a “one size fits all” approach.

  • Anti-aging and preventative care

Outside of her professional life, Dr. Wulkan enjoys to spend her time with her family, especially near the ocean or in the mountains. She adores running, hiking and surfing and hopes to excite her patients about getting active, healthy and having fun!
