Georgina & Alison
Georgina is the founder of Archeus. Georgina has been studying ways in which we work with plants and Nature for health, well-being and healing for over 30 years. She initially turned to nature to help her heal after trauma as a child. She has studied herbalism, aromatherapy, Bach flower essences, massage, reiki and shamanic energy medicine. Prior to establishing Archeus at the end of 2013, Georgina’s professional life included working for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and for the United Nations Environment Programme. She also used to run a cultural communications agency in London and once upon a time wrote awful jingles for radio stations!
Georgina’s focus is on helping Nature help people through life transitions including menopause, recovery from illness, palliative care and end of life. Georgina has managed her own journey through menopause naturally and celebrates the sense of liberation that this stage of life brings.
Alison is qualified in both conventional and holistic nutrition. It was never her intention to be a holistic nutritionist- in fact she spent the first 30 years of my working life as a civil servant in London.
When her own health started failing she was eventually diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a very nasty inflammatory bowel auto-immune condition. She started to research the condition and realised that a healthy digestive system is paramount to good health so was eager to learn as much as she could about it. Many diplomas and much experience later, she developed the products and services of Healthy Eating based on her own experience and the knowledge she acquired – and they work!
