  Feed your roots & renew your health  

Hello, I'm Ruth

Take control of your own health and feel well

Do you....

....feel like your get-up-and-go has got up and gone?

....experience symptoms that impact your quality of life?

....get told everything is 'normal' but you still feel rubbish?

....have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes, high cholesterol or IBS?

What you eat can make a HUGE difference to how you feel

I work with you using a combination of my clinical nutrition knowledge and health coaching experience to get to the root cause of your health challenges and achieve lasting change.

Am I the nutritionist for you?

Most of my clients experience symptoms in one or all of these areas:

Digestion:  bloating, pain, diarrhoea, constipation, acid reflux, IBS  

Metabolism:  energy, weight, cravings, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol 

Mind: anxiety, mood, mental health

Hormones play a key role for both men and women.

I work in these areas because the interconnections between them are huge and treating in isolation will only get short-term results. 

Often if you address the root cause or imbalance in one area you resolve challenges in the others.

My specialist areas

Through personal experience & special interest I mainly work with .....

  • Ladies in peri-menopause and menopause who want to feel like themselves again, with or without HRT

  • Men who don't feel well in mid-life or have had a health scare

  • Anyone given a diagnosis by their GP who wants to take control of their health without, or alongside, medication

  • Anyone who has lost their zest for life and wants it back

  • Ladies with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

My clinic appointments are both online and in-person from Fox Hall Clinic, Clevedon, North Somerset and the Bristol Health Hub & Bristol Menopause Clinic in Portbury (J19 M5).

Adele, 43 yrs

“I found Ruth when I was experiencing worsening hormone issues, tiredness, migraines and muscle aches. The advice she gave me was well-explained, non-judgemental and motivated me to make changes which have improved my health no end."

Jo, 47 yrs and son, 12 yrs

"Myself and my son saw Ruth at a time of difficult but different health concerns for us both. Ruth's exceptional knowledge, empathy and commitment to us as clients has been amazing. Her recommendations take into account lifestyle and preferences and I have more vitality as a result."

Matt, 28 yrs

“l'm so impressed with the level of individual detail Ruth has gone to with me and delighted that my indigestion, pain and bloating have reduced dramatically after just 8 weeks. I wish I'd found her earlier.”

Work with me

Medical Consultation

I thrive on seeing the health and happiness of my clients improve. I work online using Zoom, on the telephone or in-person in Clevedon and Portbury.

Public Speaker

I'm an experienced presenter and group facilitator and love explaining the WHY behind how good nutrition makes a difference to how we feel.

Science Courses

Understanding how your genetics influence your health and how you can eat and live to best optimise YOUR health is the ultimate example of personalised nutrition.

About me

I’m 48 and I live with my partner, 11 year old son and very needy but loveable pets in North Somerset.

 

I first discovered the power of food in my 20s after years of tests and medication did nothing to improve the digestive pain I was in on a regular basis.  Diagnosed with IBS, my life was dictated by whether or not I was experiencing a flare of my symptoms.

 

After lots of research and some trial and error, I changed my diet and eliminated my gut problems.  It was life-changing to have freedom from the pain and constant worry about how close I was to a loo.

A few years later I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) after experiencing fertility issues. 

Using food, natural supplementation and lifestyle changes, I lost weight, reduced my symptoms, and fell pregnant.

 

Our nutritional needs change over time.  I'm now using natural support for perimenopause to help me navigate the changes I'm experiencing, which can run alongside HRT brilliantly if I choose to take it.

 

After many ‘just for interest’ courses, I finally formalised my passion in a 3-year diploma with the College of Naturopathic Medicine, receiving a distinction and becoming a registered Nutritional Therapist.

I am also a qualified Nutrigenomics Practitioner with Lifecode GX.  I offer in-person appointments in Clevedon or online via Zoom.

 

I also work as a charity consultant in the health sector, supporting charities working with people affected by eating disorders, arthritis, diabetes and mental health challenges.
