About Dr. Sarah


Naturopathic doctor Sarah Cimperman is an​ expert in ​natural medicine. She received her degree from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, in 2002. NCNM is the oldest accredited college of naturopathic medicine in the United States and trains holistic primary care physicians as practitioners of the most comprehensive of alternative medicine disciplines. Dr. Sarah is a member of the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.


Dr. Sarah is the author of The Prediabetes Detox: A Whole-Body Program to Balance Your Blood Sugar, Increase Energy, and Reduce Sugar Cravings. Her articles and expertise have been featured on the Fox News network, Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, the Five To Thrive Live radio show on the Cancer Support Network, Natural Health magazine​, Whole Living​ magazine, The Natural Path, the Well Being Journal, and Wisdom magazine, among other publications.


She also writes two blogs, A Different Kind of Doctor, where she weighs in on current topics in health and wellness, and The Naturopathic Gourmet, where she posts healthy, original recipes.

In her private practice in Manhattan, Dr. Sarah consults with women, men, and children of all ages. She takes the time to really listen to every patient, fully understand complex issues, identify underlying causes of illness, and gain a true understanding of the whole person. She educates her patients about alternative and adjunctive options to conventional drugs and medical procedures, and supports them fully in their decisions. ​Because naturopathic doctors are not yet licensed in the state of New York, her practice in Manhattan is limited to consultation. Dr. Sarah holds a license as a naturopathic physician in the state of Connecticut and she hopes that licensure will come soon to New York.

Dr. Sarah sees every person as an individual and tailors her recommendations according to the unique circumstances surrounding each case. These may include guidelines for diet, exercise​, nutritional supplements, botanical medicines (plant extracts), homeopathic remedies, home hydrotherapy treatments (using water), stress management strategies, and individualized detoxification programs​.

Dr. Sarah has always had a special interest in the well-being of women. For more than a decade she worked with women escaping domestic violence, specializing in crisis management, and with community organizations like the Clothing Project and the Hambleton Project. She has been honored with the Excellence in Leadership Award and the Outstanding Feminist Leadership Award at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in biomedical science.​​
