Underlying all my work is a fascination with the human body and a deep belief that we were created to heal ourselves – without excess rules, regimes or medication.
I began my journey into the world of natural health in my early twenties and have never looked back. However, I’ve noticed that people seem to be getting sicker and more tired despite the ever-increasing amount of information there is available on health and wellbeing. I think it is because we stop ‘listening to our bodies’ – we ignore signs and symptoms and keep push, push, pushing.
So, over the years I have changed the way I work with people and I now leave most of the work to you – I am here to guide you and support you, but it is up to you to discover what really works for you.

"Ruth's passion for helping people and for homoeopathy is infectious. She has the ability to really listen, with compassion, while staying objective and without any judgement. This creates a space that allows you to connect with yourself and with what is happening on all levels. I really value her holistic approach when treating patients and admire her extensive knowledge regarding health, disease and how the mind affects our health. Thank you for helping me on so many occasions."
"If I could give a 12 star review I would. Dr Ruth is the only practitioner (and I have seen many) who actually listens to what you have to say, trusts your intuition and works with you rather than making you feel that perhaps your concerns are not valid. Her friendly and gentle manner are second to none. Her overall health knowledge is incredible. She has unravelled things others have ignored for years. I could not recommend her more highly."
Master’s Degree in Health Science, Homoeopathy
I hold a Master’s Degree in Homoeopathy and practised as a Homoeopathic Doctor in South Africa. Here homoeopathic educational standards and registration are closely aligned with those of medicine. The Master’s Degree is a 5-year full-time degree followed by 2 years in which to research and write a Master’s dissertation. The degree includes human anatomy & dissection, human physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, general pathology, systemic pathology, histology, psychology, psychopathology, homoeopathy, phytotherapy and nutrition. In order to continually enhance my skills, I regularly attend post-graduate training in Functional Medicine, Homoeopathy, Phytotherapy, Nutrition and Biopuncture.
Bachelor of Arts Degree, Literature & Philosophy
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Literature and Philosophy (summa cum laude). I continually study, write and teach in Integrative Health. I have published four health-related textbooks and am currently writing my fifth book, this time on Fatigue and Burnout.
Certified Primal Health Coach
I studied Health Coaching through the American Primal Health Coach Institute and in both my professional and personal life I focus on evolutionary-based lifestyle principles such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress-management.
Diplomas in Complementary Therapies: Reflexology, Massage & Aromatherapy
I began my career in natural health in 1999 when I first studied complementary therapies in London. I then practised in clinics for many years and have been teaching them to both students and professionals (post-graduate studies) since 2005.

and we all have courage,
even if we have to dig a little to find it."
