Julianna Wiechert BComn, MNIMH, CHNC
Medical Herbalist (UK), Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant & Clinical Aromatherapist
I grew up with the warmth and savoury flavours of Mexico, in Guadalajara city. With access to daily street markets and butcher shops, our meals were always made with fresh ingredients and of course many different herbs and spices. In our culture meals are always a time to gather the family and connect. When you go to someone's home, they may not have a lot too offer but food is always available (we love to share) and this relationship with food I believe has been one of the greatest gifts from my culture.
My education and experience background includes a mix of public relations, non-profit, insurance… but about a decade ago I discovered my true passion: Wholistic Health.
Thus, I went on to study Holistic and Orthomolecular Nutrition, Clinical Aromatherapy - with over a thousand hours in training, including aromatic medicine -. And recently I completed a four-year professional training in Herbal Medicine that included 500 hours of supervised clinical mentorship with some of the most amazing and well-respected practitioners in the field, including Chanchal Cabrera Msc., FMNIMH., Katolen Yardley DO(EU).,MNIMH, and Erika Galentin MNIMH,RH.
It was truly an honour to learn alongside them and all the other students that inspired me on this path.

Change comes one step at a time, some people can walk faster than others but the art of holistic well-being is understanding everyone's unique path. Food doesn't have morals, there is no good or bad, right or wrong.
Food nourishes and provides the fuel, the rest is up to us.
I have a passion for natural health and empowering people to learn how they can incorporate food, lifestyle changes and plant based remedies into their wellness strategies with a safe, ethical, traditional and evidenced-based approach.
Clinical herbalist focuses on the person,
their health and lifestyle history
rather than a list of symptoms.
This allows a bespoke, personalized herbal
formula to be created.
While the common saying "you are what you eat" may be true, I believe our relationship with food goes further than that. Whole foods are one of the building blocks in our health and our
food should be one of the most important tools
in our wellness plan.
Aromatherapy refers to the therapeutic use of volatile oils. Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize, and promote the health of body, mind, and spirit.
