Who we are

Natural Nutrition

Heidi du Preez is a registered Professional Natural Scientist, who obtained her master degree in Food Science. She worked as a Food Scientist in the food industry for six years.

While living in the UK for three years, and as a Food Scientist with a personal interest in health and nutrition, Heidi started to study and specialise in natural health. During this time, through extensive research and diligently following specific nutritional practices, she healed herself of Systemic Candidiasis. Heidi has learned the value of balanced wholefood nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, and it is now her passion to share this knowledge with others.

Heidi has experience in lecturing post-graduate students and in the compilation and presentation of workshops, seminars and lectures. Heidi has appeared on TV and has written several publications on scientific and general matters. She currently writes for The South African Journal of Natural Medicine and serves on their panel of experts. She is the author and publisher of the health recipe book Naturally Nutritious Wholefood Cookbook.

Heidi is currently specialising in Functional Medicine. She is focussing on sulfur metabolism and is working towards a PhD degree. Heidi consults to both the food and health industries and runs a private practice in Cape Town. She uses a holistic, biomedical approach, incorporating diet, wholefood supplementation, detoxification and spiritual well-being in her treatment regimen. Her focus is on the prevention and cure of chronic, metabolic and degenerative diseases. Heidi specialises in digestive disorders, mercury or metal poisoning, systemic candidiasis and integrative oncology.

She does not believe in recommending or following a specific diet fad, preferring her own tailor-made health discipline, incorporating concepts which are relevant to her scientific background as well as her holistic approach. Heidi does not ‘practice what she preaches’, but rather ‘preaches what she practices’ and follows the philosophy of simplicity and returning to the basics of good food, good thoughts and good health.

Heidi is the proud mother of two beautiful and healthy children.
