About me

Elizabeth Butler

Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated with how the body works and all things health-related. Running alongside this interest has been my deep need to know what makes us 'work' at a level beyond the physical body. What stimulates our desires, what motivates us to grow and develop emotionally, and what touches our soul? I've sought answers to these big questions through my own self-discovery and through my work.

My interest in health has settled around the subject of nutrition and I've spent my career advising people with cancer and other serious diseases how to follow a diet and lifestyle that supports physical health and emotional wellbeing. What touches me about supporting those with serious disease is the strength often shown and how, when there is no place to run, many people find the courage to face up to those things that aren't working in their life. The transformations I have witnessed in many of my clients, not only with their health but also their level of fulfilment has been outstanding at times and incredibly inspiring. I hope to take what I've learnt from these people and help others see how positive lifestyle changes can be transforming on a deep level and lead to a life of greater health and happiness.

This is a place where you'll find thoughts and insights, advice and guidance on health and wellbeing.

When you’re trying your best to eat well, perhaps because you’re recovering from illness, in which case an optimal diet is very important to you, it becomes difficult when experts change their minds and subsequently change the dietary rules.

For a few weeks now I've been promising that I'll publish a health manifesto, a document outlining the beliefs and ideas from which my advice originates and on which all the work of Body Soul Nutrition is based. These ideas have developed over a lifetime and have been harnessed through intellectual study, personal experience and 14 years of nutritional therapy work. These ideas are also influenced by my spiritual (not religious) ...

The bad news when it comes to skin health is that our skin absorbs a percentage of what we put on it (how much depends on the integrity of the skin and the type of chemical). And currently many of us are applying to our skin a whole host of potions and lotions, with the average adult using 9 products each day resulting in exposure to 126 unique chemicals. The fact that some of the chemicals in our skincare products are known to cause harm by irritating the skin, disrupting hormone balance, weakening ...

The most important thing to remember when addressing the issue of sleep is that the body has very powerful in-built mechanisms that make us fall asleep. No effort is required, it comes naturally and easily. However, many of us don’t sleep well, finding it difficult to drop off and stay asleep which means that something is getting in the way of those powerful natural processes. What is that thing? Well, in almost all cases the thing getting in the way of our sleep is our mind.
