Talk on nutrition and superfoods by Jules Salt
Jules Salt is a superfood importer/distributer and has been doing this since 2007. It has been his mission to source the best quality superfoods on the planet. He believes that along with high quality, ethics and sustainability go hand in hand. He has followed this path for the benefit of everyone who is interested and also for his own wellbeing. Previous to this he was running an organic juice and superfoods bar at festivals, which naturally led him to supplying superfoods to people in the UK and Europe.
In following this inspiration, Jules has experimented and used his own body as a permanent testing ground. In 1995, Jules suffered an serious road accident, which shattered his body, mind and spirit but against the odds he managed to turn his life around. During this period, he used a wide array of alternative healing methods, including nutrition. This massively aided his recovery and after a few years doctors informed him he was a walking miracle. He attributes a large part of his speedy recovery to the diet and foods that he implemented. After his recovery, he went back to his normal life as a builder, eating normally, though after a few years, fatigue was setting in due to long hours of hard work. He then started taking high quality supplements, with benefits to his energy levels, vitality and constitution.
Jules will talk to you about his journey and his findings, to offer inspiration to others who are looking to turn their lives around or to simply boost their health. He will talk about the importance of sound nutrition, how people can make the transition from poor to good eating habits and how eating healthily can have a massive positive impact on your life and sense of wellbeing.

The Metamorphic Technique is a simple tool that enables us to move from feelings of limitation towards accessing more of our potential. In short, it helps us to help ourselves. During a session, as a practitioner I use a light touch on my client’s feet, hands and head. A safe, relaxing space is provided where the person can ‘just be’. There is no need to take a case history. Some people may wish to talk, while others enjoy taking time out. The Technique offers a unique approach to handling personal issues, whether they are physical, mental or emotional. These matters will influence how we are able to respond to events in everyday life.
