Meet Dr. Sarah Rothman

Dr. Sarah Anne Rothman is a State Board Licensed Naturopathic Doctor and State Board Licensed Acupuncturist. She is the founder and Owner of Thyme Integrative Health and is so grateful to be practicing in her dream space- beside the ocean, with a team of compassionate and wonderful people, to serve the Coastside and Bay Area Community.

Dr. Sarah is dedicated to guiding you on your path to optimal health and wellness. She is passionate about integrating Western and Eastern Medicine.   She holds a strong interest in Women’s Health and focuses on hormonal balance, fertility, menopause, PCOS, thyroid health, healthy aging and healthy menstrual cycles. She loves working with women around fertility, throughout pregnancy and during the post natal period with both Acupuncture and Naturopathic Medicine. Another area of focus is Thyroid Health, including Hashimotos, Inflammatory Thyroiditis and Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid imbalances. She is a certified WTS Doctor (AARM) and will work with you to optimize body temperature and thyroid function through nutrition, herbal medicine, acupuncture and various forms of thyroid hormones as needed.  As well, she treats a wide array of digestive troubles, autoimmune disease, food and environmental sensitivities, insomnia, cardiovascular and metabolic disease, skin disturbances and emotional balance.

She values an integrative approach to health, through preventative medicine, acute and chronic care and individualized treatment. She believes it is her duty to spend adequate time with each patient and to listen, educate and tailor each visit according to your needs, encouraging you to take an active role in your health.  She is happy to work with your other health care practitioners and specialists to provide you with the most well rounded, best possible care she can. She believes strongly in the power of food as medicine, the healing potential of herbs and nutrients and sustainable health care.

She founded Pacifica Naturopathic Medicine as Coastside’s first Naturopathic Doctor and has loved serving the Coastside and Bay Area community since. She then expanded her practice, and is now thrilled to be practicing with such a wonderful team of practitioners at what is now Thyme Integrative Health.

Her clinical background includes extra training in Women’s Health, Fertility, Thyroid Health and Pediatrics. She has also spent time doing some clinical work abroad in countries such as Bolivia where she trained in pediatric clinics and hospitals, and Kenya where she worked with patients and physicians in rural natural health and homeopathic clinics. As well, Dr. Sarah has a background in fitness and personal training and has taught fitness and spinning classes to a wide array of fitness levels from beginner to athlete. She believes that diet and exercise are integral to overall health and offers dietary counseling and meal planning through the clinic.

She lives in Pacifica and loves to hike and play in the area with her husband, her two children and her dog.  She is so grateful to be living and practicing in this wonderful community and looks forward to working with you to help you live healthy happy.
