What do you like most about working at Natures Corner?

That's tricky! I love everything except the annual stocktake!

If you could give everyone a single piece of advice when it comes to health, what would it be?

Try everything and enjoy variety.

What are your top 3 products sold in-store, and if you use them yourself, how have they benefited you:

1. Optibac Probiotics for Daily Immunity - Keeps me in 'prime working condition'

2. Viridian Flaxseed Oil - Fantastic as a salad dressing with mixed herbs, honey and apple cider vinegar.

3. Better You Magnesium Oil - Essential for relieving stress and tension.

 

What are your hopes for the future of natural health?

To be embraced by far more people than embrace it at the moment, so that more people regain responsibly for themselves.

What do you like most about working at Natures Corner?

My personal satisfaction comes from interacting with customers on an individual basis and being able to provide information and guidance. This of course allows the customer to make an informed choice. If I could describe one word for the shop’s appeal, I would say “uniqueness”. Natures Corner is always striving to be creative and innovative and this makes for an exciting work atmosphere.

 

If you could give everyone a single piece of advice when it comes to health, what would it be?

Don’t skip breakfast! Starting the day with a healthy breakfast e.g. porridge and taking supplements such as fish oil will help control the energy fluctuations during the day and in turn control weight and sugar cravings.

 

What are your top 3 products sold in-store, and if you use them yourself, how have they benefited you:

1. Solgar Super Starflower Oil 1300mg. This product is a powerful regulator of the hormonal system. It is a cold pressed seed oil, rich in GLA (gamma linoleic acid which have been advocated for conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. The supplement also eases PMS pains, specifically breast tenderness.

2. Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream. As a big believer in natural skincare products, this cream is a bestseller for good reason. It is made using organic rose petals and rosehip extract which has a nurturing effect on the skin. Besides smelling wonderful, it strengthens and soothes redness and is particularly effective for the mature dry skin. The secret is to squeeze a small amount onto the palm of your hand and warm it by pressing your hands together before applying.

3. Vogel’s Arnica Gel. Arnica is not just for bruises. This product provides symptomatic relieve of muscular aches and pains.

 

What are your hopes for the future of natural health?

To find strategies that will work for the individual to find their way to natural health.

What do you like most about working at Natures Corner?

I feel very lucky to work at Natures Corner and love the relax atmosphere in the shop. I think that is reflected in our customers, whom we build relationships with and they trust us with health related questions, some of which can be of a personal nature.

If you could give everyone a single piece of advice when it comes to health, what would it be?

Listen to your own body! This can be diet or supplementation. What works for one person, may not necessarily work for everyone else. Do what's right for you!

What are your top 3 products sold in-store, and if you use them yourself, how have they benefited you:

1. Solgar Alaskan Fish Oil - Great if you play a lot of high impact sports like running for example, which can put a lot of stress on your joints. Or suffer aching joints in general. This oil capsule is easy to take and you know that it is a pure salmon oil.

2. Pukka Ashwaghanda - Great for daily stress and anxiety. Stress can have a huge impact on health from digestive issues to sleep disturbances. I love this gentle, effective herb which keeps me on an even keel!

3. Alva Intensive Crystal Roll On - I avoid deodorants with aluminium in them but do a lot of sport. This is one of the few I have found to help sweating during intensive training but doesn't block the pores.

 

What are your hopes for the future of natural health?

That the public start to put their health into their own hands and views change towards natural health as some see it as an unnecessary luxury. A lot of us work and play hard and need to support our bodies otherwise we crash and burn. You wouldn't put diesel into an unleaded car, watch what fuel (food and drink) you put into your body, otherwise you will breakdown (but we are here to help if you do).

What do you like most about working at Natures Corner?

Each Day is a challenge because of the diversity of customers and their needs.

 

If you could give everyone a single piece of advice when it comes to health, what would it be?

Live for today! So look after yourself and listen to your body.

 

What are your top three products sold in-store, and if you use them yourself, how have they benefitted you:

1.Co-Q-10- Great for energy! CoQ10 naturally falls as one ages so it is important to replace this important vitamin with supplementation.

2.Probiotics - Many of our customers are unaware of the importance of gut health for energy levels, immunity and skin health.

3.Seed Oils - A great source of essential fatty acids which is vital for general health but also skin, hair and nails (very important to us girls!)

 

What are your hopes for the future of natural health?

That natural products are more recognised and also used alongside conventional medicine.

Health Qualifications gained:

HI am currently in my last year studying Nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, London.

 

What do you like most about working at Natures Corner?

The diversity of customers I meet on a daily basis and applying my nutritional knowledge to the benefit of the customers.

 

If you could give everyone a single piece of advice when it comes to health, what would it be?

Take the time to look after yourself, not just your body but also your mind and spirit. Love and be kind to you and everyone you meet.

 

What are your top three products sold in-store, and if you use them yourself, how have they benefitted you:

1. Ashwagandha by Pukka  - this strengthening herb is my favourite for those who are suffering from stress and fatigue (which seems to be most of us!) – it helps to calm and rejuvenate the nervous system.
 
2. Magnesium Spray by Better You – perfect to help relax the body and promote a restful nights sleep.

3. Vitamin C by Pukka – my preferred supplement for immune protection, as it is easy to digest, as well as being a potent antioxidant.

 

What are your hopes for the future of natural health?

For us all to make the choice to nourish and honour our mind and body.
