About Helen Kirby

Following a childhood spent avoiding beetroot juices but quite liking her mandatory daily salad, Helen spectacularly deviated from this background for 20 years or more.
Having finally seen sense and overcome the need to contradict her mother, the last 20 years have been very different. Helen discovered the rejuvenating benefits of good nutrition and living a healthy life.
This culminated 8 years ago by her switching to a high raw diet. Helen is passionate about aiding others to achieve happiness through health. Most of all she believes in a gentle approach. No boot camps here!
