Often when I start working with clients, even the smallest changes bring about a clearer vision on how different life could be if health were optimized. These are changes the client makes. Yes I am there to educate and support but ultimately the 'awakening' is from the client's efforts, not mine. Some clients find their family or friends are not always so supportive or comfortable. Often because their change unsettles others - indeed it can sometimes be a mirror to the change the other person isn't making. For those clients, sometimes they might feel like turning back to 'fit in'. But I always say keep going because good things will keep coming from the change. And often those around you will eventually want some of that new found change for themselves. And this change is not always about diet or physical health. It can be beyond that too.

What a beautiful setting for yoga...I highly recommend Alice Shine Yoga classes! And what a peaceful place to practice in.

Especially the gelatin gummies are a great way of hiding children's nutrient capsules (pull them apart to add to gummie).


I am excited to be presenting a lecture as part of a day on Nutrigenomics in Bristol in July - looking at why supporting routes of detoxification are essential for healthy DNA and gene expression. For example, making sure oestrogens move through safe biochemical pathways so their metabolites do not damage DNA. I will also be talking about why using the right forms of nutrients is essential when so many of us have known and unknown genetic polymorphisms or 'SNP's' (single nucleotide polymorphisms). This event is for health professionals of all backgrounds and nutrition students - for tickets http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/nutrigenomics-a-practitioners-perspective-tickets-24814730527?aff=erellivmlt


If you think you can't do something, you probably can't. That is where the 'thinking' takes over...the master. Don't think so much about healthy changes you can't do. Try them anyway, no matter how un-refined, or un-elegant they seem. Little by little, it all builds over time and you will start to see its a journey. But try not to allow the 'master' to tell you that its not possible. Thanks also Nicole Parsons-Lourens

I could not agree more with Henrietta. Quick fix detoxification is not the way forward and is potentially more harmful and the patient will not see or feel the long term benefits. Longer courses of detoxification is what our ancestors would have completed too. The quick-fix detox is a far cry from proper functional or naturopathic cleansing.

Babies are not sterile in the womb (we used to think this). They are in fact receiving beneficial bacteria from their mother via the umbilical cord. The last trimester is when this occurs most, which is why if a baby is premature, they may not have had time populate certain bacteria they need. I encourage pregnant mothers to increase beneficial bacteria foods like sauerkraut (but caution over raw cheeses etc) and supplement with a good probiotic all the way through pregnancy. If a baby is pre-term or cesarean born, or not breastfed then the baby itself will need a suitable probiotic too. Its in these early years that we develop our own important microbiome of bacteria that will serve us as an adult. It shapes our immune system for life.

Edible flowers and delicious breakfast. I roll with Bain-Marie I love her! If you are in West London you must try her food Goldfinger Factory

Feel Better Nutrition with Lorna Driver-Davies shared Wild Nutrition's post.

The difference between between 'folic acid' and 'folate' is such a confusing topic for clients and my article aims to demystify the topic. This is also especially important for anyone concerned about genetic variations (MTHFR) and how they may affect nutrient absorption.

Movement is just as important as nutrition. Movement supports our digestion, gets our heart working and hopefully our brain more fired up...and more. Thank you Nicole Parsons - Transformation Coach, UK Egoscue Instructor for sharing!


I agree! Magnesium and B vitamins in a food form supplement is the way to go for energy support and is a constant in my own personal list of supplements. Many of you will know my natural approach to supplementation and avoidance of synthetic supplementation (around 99 % of the market sadly). Lovely article in Matches Fashion. http://www.matchesfashion.com/womens/the-style-report/2016/05/the-head-turning-looks-issue/the-wellness-report-the-truth-about-supplements-eve-kalinik

This is something I have to remind myself everyday as its really simple but easy to forget. Thanks Nicole Parsons for this message! In fact Nicole Parsons - Transformation Coach, UK Egoscue Instructor has more messages like this on her page! Some of my clients may already know her from her amazing professional capacity to resolve structural and postural aches and pains!
Feel Better Nutrition with Lorna Driver-Davies shared Shine Yoga's photo.

For me movement, posture, alignment, flexibility and generally feeling 'calm' are also part of being healthy (not just what you eat). I couldnt recommend more Alice's yoga classes in the village of Leigh (not far from Tonbridge), Kent. Get relaxed and bendy! I love Shine Yoga

Looking forward to more herbal lecturing this year! If you are interested learning more about herbs, come and watch me lecture alongside my other herbal lecturing team - no previous herbal medicine experience necessary!

I love this article explaining the link between the gut, inflammation and depression.


Feeling wonderfully healthy after an 45 minute run across the Sussex Downs. This is all on my doorstep and feeling pretty grateful for it. Not my photo but it looks just like this...and it did today with the glorious sun. I am often an over-worker, but this run has inspired me to write more good things about a menopause article I need to get done. So sometimes a break is indeed good for the brain!
