More about the guest

Ruth Fellowes is a clinical nutritionist who has a passion for putting families back together with food. She strongly believes that what we eat affects how we feel.

This all began when her eldest child was a bub and something seemed not right so she decided to find out what. After doing some reading and discovering that her bub was showing symptoms of food intolerance it lead her to the fundamental fact that FOOD CHANGES OUR MOOD AND MENTAL WELLBEING.

On her Facebook page she states, “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.”

She goes on to explain that one of the key aspects of Nutritional Medicine is that we are definitely individuals and there really isnโ€™t such a thing as the perfect diet for everyone. This is is where you need a helping hand to find out whatโ€™s not working for you, what will, and what nutrients will be your best friends.

She is the principal Clinical Nutritionist at herย  practice but also has a small team of student nutritionists and naturopaths working alongside her on many days.
