Rosie Tadman (Pinder): 1st Class BA (Hons), Dip NT (CNM)
I’ve always had an interest in people, which initially lead me to a career in Human Resources. Although I enjoyed my job, I always had the desire to something I was passionate about, and in my early 20s I realised that was health and nutrition.
I took the leap and decided to study a 3-year course in Naturopathic Nutrition at the college of Natural Medicine (London). I started my studies in September 2014 and I haven’t looked back since. I am so fortunate to have found my calling, not only in nutrition but also in the biochemistry of the body – I am constantly amazed at our body and it's capabilities given the right environment.
I have changed my own health through food - I used to see food and weight regulation as the single most important aspect of health. I never thought I would be able to use food and natural therapies to heal my hormonal imbalance (heavy and painful periods) and acne through diet and lifestyle changes. What you can do when you start to see food as medicine is truly amazing.
I worked part-time for the NHS on a Diabetes Prevention Programme (called X-PERT) for over a year and part-time in private practice, supporting women to achieve their health goals.
In April 2018, I left the NHS as my private practice had become a Full-time job.
This is a dream come true. I love my job and feel privileged every day that individuals let me in to their lives at a time they feel most vulnerable and allow me to support them through their health challenges.
