Meet Hilda

Hi! I’m a Medical Herbalist and BANT registered Nutritionist®. Soon after qualifying with the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition, I started my practise as a nutritionist. As it developed, I realised there was a need to broaden my approach to offer a wider range of tailored techniques in my prescriptions that supported required outcomes. So, I enrolled on an Herbal Medicine degree which allowed me to use the medicinal power of herbs – I continued my studies into natural medicine, and was recently awarded a diploma in Essential Oil Therapy, which helped strengthen my medicinal plant based knowledge. My focus has always been on the root causes of disease. This led me to explore the principles of Functional Medicine, which now underpin my approach to healing. I keep up to date with research as part of my Continuing Professional Development and regularly attend conferences and seminars to gain further insight into specialist health topics. I offer consultations and an Annual Wellness Check online or at the Nature’s Medicine clinic in Hampton, TW12 2HY, UK. I am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), and the Institute of Functional Medicine.
Good times

Personal Life

I am passionate about nutrition, healthy living and am an avid cook. My love for food begun at a young age as my mum started teaching me how to cook, so that I could help her with family meals. I was so curious, but only 7 years old and so started my passion that has never stopped growing.

Today with much education, knowledge of nutrient values, experience in using food as medicine for healing and the additional help of the medicinal herb kingdom, I find such a pleasure to cooking a nourishing meal that is restorative and health giving.

I love educating people about eating a varied of healthy foods that suits their physiology and ultimately helps them develop a healthier lifestyle. I am always excited to help adults and children turn their health around – it’s a joy to see people loving life again and free of many health issues – it is truly liberating!
