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.

Natural Weight Loss

What’s stopping you from losing weight?

One of the most common reasons people visit our naturopathic clinic is to seek our advice on their weight loss. For many, they’ve been trying hard for a long time to lose weight… and nothing is working. They’ve dieted. They’ve exercised. But the weight stays on.

There’s a reason for this and it boils down to understanding your body – its needs, its balances and its essential biochemical components.

Natural obstacles to weight loss

What’s getting in the way?

In order for your dieting and exercise regime to actually work, you need your body to be functioning in balance. Imbalances in your mineral, vitamin or hormone levels will inhibit your body’s ability to efficiently process food and will inhibit your ability to get up and do the hard-work required.

Imbalances in minerals and vitamins like Magnesium, Vitamin B and Vitamin C can lead to tiredness, sugar-cravings and changes in taste. When combined, that means you can easily lose the get-up-and-go you need to stick to a taxing exercise regime. Those cravings are the death of many a well-intentioned diet plan.

Your hormones – thyroid, adrenal and sexual – are constantly in flux and the external stresses of your life can throw them out of balance. Stress at work can increase the production of adrenaline, for example, which is a common problem – but a serious one if you’re struggling with your weight.

The Nauturopathic Journey – from “body imbalance” to “a better body”

As a qualified and experienced naturopath, our head consultant is expert in guiding you through the journey to a balanced body. In doing so, she helps unlock your potential for weight loss and remove the barriers standing in your own way.

Mari has trained with the Institute for the Psychology of Eating and has been personally coached by John Gabriel of The Gabriel Method and has her own experience of the challenges that many people face when it comes to losing excess weight.

A weight loss consultation includes:

1. Getting to know you

We take the time to learn about our patients’ lives, their influences and their goals.

2. Getting to know your body

We assess your weight loss journey so far and then analyse your body’s structural and biochemical balances with a combination of cutting-edge technology, microscopy and naturopathic techniques.

3. Moving forward

The goal is to release your body’s potential to shed weight. A short consultation and a few weeks of balancing will save you months of heartache and wasted effort. As such, we put together a bespoke plan for you to address the imbalances in your body – that will include dietary, lifestyle and supplementary elements.
