Hello, I’m Janet, a registered Nutritional Therapist.

I would love to help you discover the power that healthy foods

have to improve your wellbeing.

Some 30 years ago, I was diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and prescribed drugs to calm the symptoms of stomach pain and alternate diarrhoea and constipation.  Unfortunately, the drugs didn’t work and in time, even as I improved my diet, eating more wholegrain foods, things didn’t improve. From time to time my stomach would swell and become painful and I had no idea why although the allopathic view is that stress affects the gut.  

Towards the end of my working life I worked in the pension department of a trade union.  In my lunch hour, to pass the time, I would trawl the internet searching for the reasons for my stomach problems.  I discovered further theories which suggested that my health problems probably stemmed from specific foods.

The information did lead me to a greater interest in exactly what I was eating which marked the end of eating Twix bars at bus stops!  I started to adapt my diet further and to my relief the IBS started to diminish and now I rarely have episodes. With my interest tweaked, wanting to learn more I signed up to study nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. Having completed my training in biomedicine, biochemistry and nutrition I have actually found that it is a gateway to lifelong learning. It has changed my life and that of my family, improved my health and given me a new passion and focus.  I hope I may have the privilege to help you on your journey to better health.
