Ruth Green is the South Oxfordshire regional coordinator for BANT and coordinates regular meetings with local members to support practitioners with their work. Ruth has always been a keen cook and understood the importance of healthy eating from a young age. Ruth’s mother developed a non coeliac gluten sensitivity during Ruth’s childhood which meant the family significantly changed their eating habits
A fascination between diet and health emerged for Ruth, which continued to grow stronger. As a keen cook Ruth studied food economics at GCSE and A level standard before progressing on to her degree in Nutritional Science. Ruth’s interest in Nutrition developed further when both her children were diagnosed with severe food allergies. At the time there was very little ‘free from’ convenience food available that meant Ruth had to experiment with different foods and recipes
As a mother of two young children with food allergies and intolerances Ruth has first hand knowledge of the difficulties that can occur and wants to promote an awareness of food allergies and intolerances. Her key areas of clinical focus include gastro intestinal health, autoimmunity, food allergies/ intolerances and longevity. Ruth is passionate about food, nutrition, fitness and wellbeing and is a firm believer that supporting the body through nutrition and lifestyle does not have to mean compromising on taste or enjoyment
