What we do


Naturopathy is the art, science, and philosophy of nature. It is an holistic approach to health and wellness based on the unique qualities of each individual. It uses the principal that our body has an inherent ability to heal itself, given the right environment.

Naturopathy at our North Devon clinic is guided by the following founding principles:

  • First, do no harm
  • Utilise the healing power of nature
  • Treat the cause of imbalance, not just the symptoms
  • Treat the whole person; mind, body and spirit


We use the most advanced screening technology available today. Our screening system will reveal disturbances on all levels: structural, biochemical, energetic and emotional.

Additionally, we use a highly powered microscope to evaluate a single drop of blood, which contains a mass of information to assess an individual's current state of balance / imbalance.

What we offer

At our North Devon naturopathic clinic, we offer:

  • Food Sensitivity Testing
  • Allergy Advice
  • State-of-the-art Health Screening
  • Cellular Analysis
  • Naturopathic Consultations
  • Personalised Retreats

We have achieved outstanding success with a wide range of symptoms; such as disruptive menopause, hormone imbalance, skin conditions, allergies and food intolerances, fatigue and ME, poor immune function, viruses, IBS, diabetes, parasites, candida, stress, sleep problems, migraines, low libido and more.

Devon's allergy advice clinic

Allergies plague thousands across Devon and many are less obvious than a strong reaction to nuts.

The human body can also be intolerant to a number of food types, environmental stimuli and substances - knowing which your body is negatively affected by is the first step to cutting them out of your life.

The difference can be massive, which is why we enjoy offering allergy advice and food intolerance tests as part of our repertoire.

Health MOT

Many of us go years without a health checkup.

Your car gets a checkup every year…

…but do you? We all book our car in for an MOT annually, but many of us go years without a second thought for our health. By the time something is wrong, recovery can become much harder.

Nature & Science are changing that. Our natural health consultant Mari offers a brand new ‘Health MOT’ service at their natural health retreat located in Barnstaple, North Devon. Anyone can come to discover more about their health and how their lifestyle could be, and is, impacting it.

Our clinic is open all year to pre-booked appointments. You can book your Health MOT using the contact form below or by calling us on 07703 187 737.


Mari - Nature & Science Health MOT

“So often, people come to our clinic when a problem has already arisen. That isn’t how it should be – come to discover more about how your body reacts to external influences. Learn how to avoid harmful issues before they ever start showing.”

What is a Health MOT?

Our service acts as an introduction to natural health. For much less than the cost of a car MOT, you can visit the clinic and speak with our natural health expert – a qualified Naturopath and Cellular Microscopist with over two decades of experience in the NHS prior to starting in private practice.

The appointment will explore the elements of your diet, environment and lifestyle which are impacting your health – positively or negatively. You can discuss any particular problems you’re experiencing and learn about the intolerances and other triggers that could be the root cause.

Together, you will discuss where positive improvements could be made. Just like a car MOT, much of this is preventative work. Problems and maladies can be caught early and significant pain and discomfort down the line avoided.

    Impact of diet on body's inner balance

    “Most people go through life never actually knowing what their own body is intolerant to or the impact of their diet on their body’s inner balance. At Nature & Science, we seek to change that.”

    What does it cost?

    As an informal consultation, the Health MOT service isn’t expensive – starting at just £30.00 for up to a 30 minute session. We don’t want the price to be prohibitive, as it is part of our mission to reach as many people as we possible can.

    Basic Health

    A verbal consultation with our naturopathic expert, assessing your health history and concerns.

    Advanced Health
