About me

Welcome to Root Nutrition.

I am a BANT and CNHC Registered Naturopathic Nutritionist. I am based in Hereford and currently have clinics in Hereford and Abergavenny. I also offer online consultations for clients further afield 

My work involves getting to the root cause of your symptoms and helping to optimise your health and wellbeing naturally, through diet, supplementation and lifestyle adjustments. I look at the individual holistically to get a full picture and to offer treatment plans that cover all aspects which constitute good health.

To really put my client at the heart of what I do I also offer an Ayurvedic Dosha assessment so that we can establish your natural constitution and therefore make recommendations which help to keep your dosha in balance furthermore promoting better health.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about how we can work together. I offer a free 15 minute no obligation phone consultation so that you can establish whether this is right for you.

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
