About the Solihull Natural Health Group


The Solihull Natural Health Group was founded in 1981 by Ann Harper SRN and Christine Jones, Chartered Physiotherapist.  At that time, natural therapies were treated with suspicion, and they were conscious that care and consideration were necessary in dealing with them [ homoeopathy, acupunture, reflextherapy, herbal remedies and others]. They wanted to work alongside rather than against the more orthodox views and shaped the programme accordingly.  This has been proven to be right because many have now been accepted and absorbed into mainstream health.
They organised a series of talks under the heading "We are what we eat and we become what we think".  These talks looked at topics such as how the body works,  dietary needs, cooking healthy foods, lifestyles to cope with the mental and physical stresses of present day living, and thoughts on how to plan for the future. They ran no less than 10 of these courses and, over the years,  seminars, workshops and lectures on specific subjects have been organised.

Speakers have included well known names such as Dr Gordon Latto, Medical Practioner, Naturopath and President of the International Vegetarian Society,  Patrick Holford, Dietician, Robert Holden,  Author of "Laughter is the Best Medicine", Jack Temple, Dowser and Healer and Peter Dawkins, Philosopher, Author and Director of The Francis Bacon Research Trust.  The group also ran courses on astrology and held regular meditation evenings, not forgetting occasional visits to herb gardens and to the crop circles at Avebury.
Now 37 years on the SNHG continues to be led by Ann Harper with a dedicated committee.  It is a lively and friendly group and still very much a going concern, though perhaps with a subtle change in approach.  Despite the fact that so much information is now available via all avenues of the media it is found that people of like mind still want to meet on a regular basis to share ideas and extend their knowledge.

Forthcoming Events

Let it begin with Me

25 November 2017


Tues. 20th February 2018

Guest Speaker: Caroline Gibbs, Life Coach, Writer and Positive Speaker

A great topic - one that can be looked at in so many ways.
When Caroline first felt prompted to talk on this subject, there were many questions that came up in her mind:-

Why would we want to let it begin with us? What's the payoff?
Say we do want to let it begin with us...how do we start?
Now that we are sold on the idea and made a start, what's next?
Is there a knock-on effect?
When we say Let it begin with Me, what might 'it' refer to?
What areas of our life might Let it begin with Me apply to?
Me... Let it begin with Me... which 'Me' is the one best suited to the job?

It promises to be an interactive evening of lively discussion and exploration as we come together to reveal some answers to these fascinating questions...
