Holistic Health Practitioner - Nutritional Therapy, Colonic Hydrotherapy, Reflexology and other healing therapies in Barnstaple, Devon.
Roger Groos is passionate about healing using natural means, treating the whole person and working on the innate "life force" of the patient using various effective naturopathic therapies.
Where did it all start? Roger has a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Botany and Zoology, and has always been interested in nature and the environment. Although British through and through, his ancestors hailed from Germany, and it was not until recently an inherited family history was translated that he realised healing was in his blood - a long line of medical doctors and homoeopaths preceded him!
Roger trained in Holistic & Clinical Medicine in 1986-88 and has since qualified in Colonic Hydrotherapy, Bowen technique, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology and Metabolic Typing. He has over 25 years experience working in clinics in Woolacombe, Devon, and in the past in Truro and Minehead, Somerset and has worked at the North Devon Hospice, Barnstaple, as their nutritional adviser.
Roger is also an activist, and has been a trustee of the Natural Medicines Society, Chairman of ARCH - the Association of Registered Colon Hydrotherapists a number of times and is now their Honorary President. He is also a director of the General Naturopathic Council where he has been involved with the independent regulation of Naturopathy and has recently been appointed onto the profession-specific board of the CNHC Naturopathy register, and is CNHC registered.
He has also lectured widely on nutrition, herbs, healing and digestive problems to student, industry, peer and patient groups, and is senior lecturer at the National College of Colonic Hydrotherapy where he teaches postgraduate courses to practitioners and is a guest lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, London.
Currently, Roger holds clinics in Woolacombe for Naturopathy, Nutritional Therapy, Colonic Hydrotherapy and Reflexology (easily accessible from Barnstaple, Bideford, Ilfracombe, South Molton and all of North Devon).
If you are experiencing ill health, particularly chronic illnesses involving the gastro-intestinal tract, any bowel problems, skin or inflammatory conditions, rheumatic or otherwise, or just need dietary and lifestyle advice, then please feel free to contact Roger who may very well be able to help.
