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.

In recent years juicing has become hugely popular amongst those keen to look after their health and with a growing number of celebrities getting in on the act it’s not surprising that juicer sales have rocketed during 2013. But despite the current interest in juicing, I still meet many people who are unclear about the benefits and totally flummoxed when it comes to knowing how to juice for themselves. If that sounds like you here is a great opportunity to get yourself clued up.
I find it slightly disappointing when people ask me the question: ‘which is healthier: butter or margarine?’ I like to imagine, despite the level of misinformation out there, that most people have the answer fairly sorted in their minds. After all, the butter versus margarine debate has been raging for years and it seemed people finally recognised margarine for what it is: a processed junk food. However, in the last few years margarine has had a radical makeover following public concern ...

In the next few weeks I will be launching my Deep Nourishment Programme (more details to follow very shortly) and one of the most important aspects of the course is the exploration of what it is that truly, deeply nourishes us. You’d be very surprised how many people have never taken the time to really consider this.
For me, one of the most nourishing things I can do for ...
In the world of nutritional science there’s one man leading the way when it comes to cutting edge research. Dean Ornish, founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in California and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California in San Fransisco, has spent years investigating how diet and lifestyle factors influence health and his findings have helped to revolutionise our understanding of the power of food.
