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.

  • Food Sensitivity Testing

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.

We care and it shows.

Nature and Science does it’s best to help where other’s can’t. Take a look at what our valued clients have been saying about us below.

“Making an appointment with Nature and Science has given me a lifeline. After my health seemed to be spiralling downwards, N&S has – in 7 weeks – through their amazing diagnostic testing and naturopathy, managed to enable me to re-establish normal healthy blood from extremely unhealthy blood and begin to regain my health again. It is truly amazing what they have enabled me to achieve. They’re always so committed to making people well and all with a great sense of humour!”

Ali, Exmouth

“We brought our little boy to Nature and Science as we were fed up with the doctors just saying he had eczema and giving us various creams to try that can be harmful to a 1 year old’s skin! After N&S’s test it revealed that he had an intolerance to certain dairy foods but not all of them. They told us three foods to go dairy-free with and since that day his skin has been perfect. We can not thank the Nature and Science team enough – now his skin is as soft and smooth as a peach.”

Cornish, North Devon

“Absolutely pinpointed my symptoms. I have had my blood analysed by Nature and Science and they  absolutely pinpointed my symptoms and provided me with a comprehensive report to follow. I feel my endurance and health have been amazing since following their protocols.”

Robert, Instow

“I had my bloods analysed by Nature and Science a couple of years ago now and it was amazing! They were so thorough and explained everything to me in a simple, easy to understand way… Wonderful service by a wonderful team.”

Beccy, Appledore

“My daughter has been suffering from Chron’s and in an awful lot of pain and distress. Her CRP was very high for a long time and after following advice from the Nature and Science report my daughter is in hardly any pain at all and her CRP has taken a dramatic fall and is almost back to normal.”

Helen, Bath

“Mari is amazing! I can’t believe how much better I feel after seeing her and following her guidance. I have suffered with gut problems, allergies and intolerances, skin problems and even had my appendix removed and yet no doctor could diagnose what was wrong with me. One appointment with Mari and she  identified all the causing factors and gave me advice on how to get myself back to health. 6 weeks on and I’ve never felt better! Thank you so much, keep up your amazing work.”

Sophie, Barnstaple

“ I am a female footballer and have recently undergone surgery on my ankle as a result of continuing to play football with an injury. As part of my rehabilitation, Mari was able to help me boost vitamins I am deficient in to aid recovery, but also to prevent further injury when I returned back to playing regularmatches. It was discovered that I was deficient in vitamin D but also severely deficient in vitamin K. Mari’s wide array of knowledge was expressed as she was able to explain to me how being deficient in these vitamins can impact my health, something I was rather under-educated about. As a result, she was able to suggest a wide range of foods and vitamin supplements that I was able to take to boost the low vitamin levels. Since returning to football, I have gradually begun playing in regular matches and my ankle feels stronger than I could have ever expected. I am very grateful for the support I received from Mari and I would highly recommend her services to others. Her professional but relaxed manner made me feel comfortable in her company and her abilities to carry out her work competently.”

Emily, HULL

“I visited Nature & Science (Health Consultants) following a need to improve my general health and wellbeing. I was quickly able to see the effects of a high pressure job and the life style that goes with it. The reasons behind my constant fatigue and loss of focus were clear to see. After following Mari’s advice I have given up my Starbuck gold card and live in a caffeine free world, yes you do get a few laughs when out with the lads, but I am the one that has moved from 4-5 hours sleep per night to 7-8 hours. A healthy balanced diet and good sleep truly does change your life… I special thanks to Mari for making such a difference to my homework life balance.”

Leigh Edgley, Cannock -North Birmingham

“I would strongly recommend.. I had some really good advice about healthy eating and lifestyle. I managed to get my health back on track!”

Laurent, Geneva

“Having undergone a consultation with Mari, I can honestly say that I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for analysis, help and advice on health, nutrition and lifestyle choices. The detail that she was able to provide me with regarding my health at that time followed by recommendations on changes that I needed to make to diet, exercise and lifestyle were inspirational.”

Darran Baker, Exeter

“Mari is a lovely lady and did an amazing job with my bloods because of her advice my health has improved and my quality of life.  I would recommend this to anyone and was definitely worth the trip from Hungary where I live.  Thank you again.”

Andrew R, Hungary

“Both myself and my Husband had our bloods and allergies tested by Nature and Science. It was amazing to be able to see our blood on the screen as it was being tested and made everything so clear. I’ve sent so many people to Mari, she really is incredible!”

S. Blackmore, North Devon

“I had an amazing consultation and blood analysis that really made me open my eyes to my health and how important it is to look after it now. I was able to understand clearly what was going on in my body I felt comfortable and confident to work on myself with Mari’s expert guidance. I fully recommend going to see Mari as her knowledge and passion on health, wellness and well-being is incredible and you know you are going to be in safe hands!”

Danielle Close, Cheltenham

“Mari is incredible! Couldn’t recommend her services more highly- I went to see her when I was in the depths of despair from an unexplainable, and untreatable full body rash that was worsening everyday.There was no medical explanation, and I was having to wait for a dermatology review so I booked into see Mari for food intolorence bio screen. The machine she uses is amazing, Mari explained everything amazingly and wrote me such a thorough report afterwards to help guide my recovery. It’s been around 2 weeks since I met with her and my rash is almost completely cleared, and I can’t thank her enough! It’s worth the money for her ongoing support, we have stayed in touch via email and she is always on hand to discuss things with! A great, eye opening and really life changing service!”

Amy Hardie, Braunton

“David had his annual diabetic review today. He was hoping they would reduce his Metformin to one a day, instead he came off Metformin completely He’s not a diabetic anymore. Hooray! He will have another review in 6 months and if his bloods are good, he doesn’t have to go back to the diabetic clinic again. Thank you so much Mari!”

Anne Strobel, North Devon

“I have never experienced such a personal and professional treatment than with mari. She makes you feel at complete ease about the most private and personal subjects. Situations with your body that you may have struggled with over time and that have left you feeling exhausted and vulnerable not only in yourself but with other services that have been unable to provide you with the correct treatment. It’s so refreshing to be able to speak to someone who has the sincerest empathy who never judges, listens & continually supports your “healing” journey.. after leaving my appointment I really felt like for the first time in years I had been listened too! Such a great feeling! This lady is absolutely magic in its purest form she goes above and beyond in everything she does!
Leanne Chard, Devon
