"After being diagnosed with pre-diabetes and low iron levels, a friend recommended I saw Helen. She was sympathetic, caring and very professional. She gave me confidence and guided me through the best options for me. I am now free from pre-diabetes and my iron levels have improved and are back to normal.
I am better physically and mentally - due to Helen's guidance and encouragement. I also enjoyed some weekly cooking sessions."

“I first consulted Helen in early 2019 as I had problems with my weight, blood sugars and my digestion. Helen is a very thorough, kind and knowledgeable therapist and with dietary changes and her recommended vitamins and minerals, I very quickly noticed a great improvement in my symptoms and digestive problems. She gives wonderful advice about whole food eating too, plant-based, low fat, low carb meals and I have attended most of her cooking classes which are great fun, simple and absolutely delicious. I’m so pleased to have met her.”

"I was very anxious and suffering from insomnia before I came to see you. We looked at my exercise levels and diet. You also added supplements to my diet. After analysing and balancing these things my state of mind and insomnia improved enabling me to enjoy life. Thanks so much!

"I visited Helen Ross various times over 2017 to address a worsening of symptoms of a mysterious illness that has been troubling me for many years, since the birth of my son. Doctors have never been able to find anything wrong with me apart from celiac disease although I felt very ill at times to the point of being unable to work and unable to participate in many of life's activities.
Helen took an extensive history of my health and life style and arranged for me to have a whole array of laboratory tests so that we could see what was really going on. After many years of being pushed out of doctors offices with " there is nothing wrong with you"! It was so good to be listened to and actually heard for the first time. Not to mention get answers.
A DNA test showed that I have some genetic variances which have contributed towards my poor health, and are pretty easily corrected using the right B vitamins. Taking those was a turning point for me. The other test results helped Helen to put together a tailor made intervention plan, which included adjusting my diet and with lots of invaluable guidance and supplements, she has managed to get me on to the road to recovery. I am still following the protocol so hope to feel even better soon. I will continue to consult with Helen until I am better.
Her intuition and knowledge of her field of expertise has been a real life saver for me and what she has pieced together like a jig saw puzzle, in short, a private detective would be impressed with!
For once in my life I actually know what is going on in my body and I feel I am in safe hands. That is very empowering. Highly recommend.”

"Many times I'd decided my personal health needed improving but just didn't have the impetus to make the changes needed. Then I went to one of Helen's talks. Her knowledge and ability to convey real truths about lifestyle choices impressed and inspired me. The changes made to my diet have ensured a more positive approach to my food choices, more energy, improved sleep patterns and even a greater sense of calm in my life."

"Yesterday I went on a retreat day with The Well Life Lab. We did yoga, tai chi and learnt about the benefits of good nutrition. Helen prepared a delicious lunch and shared recipes. It was such a wholesome day! Last night I slept like a dream and woke up inspired to make some of the recipes. After a few hours in the kitchen I have whipped up some raw chocolates, high protein low carb bread, miso salad dressing and almond milk ready to make my autumn smoothie to take to work tomorrow.
Thanks Helen and your team for creating such a special day x
A fabulous treat of a retreat! Delicious food; an informative and inspiring talk,...nourishing yoga; deep sound bath relaxation after lunch - no- one wanted to get up!! Then a gentle introduction to Tai Chi. Even with the relentless rain outside, the Kingcombe Centre Nature and the flourishing kitchen garden were all around us, as we celebrated the Autumn Equinox in style. So grateful to have won the free place!
Thank you all!!"
"Thank you for a truly glorious and nourishing day. Packed full of love, gentleness, fun, space, nutritious food and superb yoga in surroundings of natural beauty. A day where our vision for 2019 will be hard to forget.
All the family members are feeling much gratitude.......with some lasting precious moments we shared."
"Today we went to a plant based cooking workshop with Helen Ross.

"I approached Helen for some guidance on weight gain associated with peri-menopause. My diet was pretty ‘healthy’ but she was able to help me to up my protein intake without using animal products and gave me really easy recipes to follow which were amazing.
Her knowledge about nutrition and balancing diet is second to none.
I would also really recommend her healthy cooking classes, really hands-on, and so informative too."

"I had a persistent skin irritation on my face which caused me a real problem, with no definite diagnosis over years. By revitalising my diet, no sugar, no caffeine, probiotics, supplements, and real attention to what I ate, I felt revived refreshed and had a new perspective on my diet. My skin changed remarkably, resulting in no unwanted flare-ups. I dropped my stress and felt more in control of myself through reviewing my diet and re-educating myself to a better viewpoint on nutrition and health."
