Meet Andrea Okos, Colonic Hydrotherapist and Natural Juice Therapist and founder of Love Yourself UK Ltd. Her mission statement is to inspire you to become the person you would like to be, while teaching you to love yourself and to achieve your dreams.
Andrea says: “At my stall we can discuss your digestive system issues and whether colonics would be a solution for you. You can even make appointment either at Kingston Natural Health Ctr or at her Sutton clinic for both colonic therapy and food intolerance test.
When food and drink is not digested properly, the larger molecules can pass through and sometimes the body reacts to them as invaders. This can cause inflammation and a wider range of symptoms from skin conditions, gut symptoms, fatigue, migraines, etc.
Many people suffer for years, being unable to enjoy a normal energetic lifestyle not knowing they might have food intolerance. You can learn more about digestive issues and food intolerance testing during Andrea’s talk at the event.
You can even have your intolerance test done right at her stall with results being ready in a week (you can choose to get them by email or meet Andrea in her clinic to discuss in details and to get her advice in next steps). YorkTest’s offer the most scientific approach available on the market – www.lorisian.com.
Prices for food intolerance testing for 75, 100 or 150 items (http://www.loveyourselfdetox.co.uk/treatments/food-intolerance-test):
- In Andrea’s clinic at a later date: £149, £199 or £299 respectively
- At the event: £139, £185 or £269, respectively
- And if you order in advance and pay a deposit of 20% for a test taken at the event you will pay: £129, £169 or £239 respectively. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org to order).

Powerful People’s Protein Pantry
We highly recommend you to pay a visit to Powerful People’s Protein Pantry to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling guilty because their treats are good for you. The founder, Amy, is a Yoga and fitness instructor. Her story is so inspiring that we have to share it with you:
Amy tells, “In 2014 I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) giving me an understanding as to why I had struggled with my weight but also meant that I had to re evaluate my eating and completely steer clear of any refined sugars to keep the symptoms of PCOS to an absolute minimum. On top of this I am also lactose intolerant, so this lead to restricting dairy from my diet including chocolate! I was finding it very difficult to stay away from sweet foods and felt that I needed something to satisfy the odd cravings so I began to experiment with baking my own healthy treats and after working with one of the leading health and nutrition experts in Essex started adding a vegan protein powder into the mix to balance out the nutritional profile as well as adding health benefits. I began to experiment and mastered a variety of gluten free, dairy free, soy free and sugar-free recipes that were made with a high-quality vegan protein powder. After lots of great successes, Powerful People’s Protein Pantry was born.
What makes their products more awesome is the fact that all of them are gluten, dairy, soy & sugar-free and Amy only use the finest organic ingredients including a vegan blend protein powder. Yay!

The founder of a naturally amazing skincare brand, MelOrganic, has a sweet message that we would like to share with you. Melanie says, “If you’re like me, you’re probably conscious about the products you use and put on your skin. Have these products been tested ethically? What nasty preservatives have been added to them? Is the packaging sustainable? Who are actually making them? This is why just over a year ago I began researching the cosmetic skincare industry, and I was shocked. Did you know many personal skincare products contain toxic chemicals that aren’t listed on the label?! So in the interest of keeping the vibes positive, I’ll stop right there. Needless to say, I stopped using all cosmetic products, but I still wanted to keep my skin wrinkle free and soft with a healthy glow… Enter MelOrganic. I started making my own products, just for myself initially, but as friends and family started to notice the difference in my skin, they began to ask what I’m using, so I showed them and the response was overwhelming! Fast forward year: I now have a 100% organic, preservative and cruelty-free, hand crafted skin care range.”
Remember to visit Melanie’s stall. If you’re lucky she will give you a pamper with her Nourishing Himalayan Salt Scrub!

Here’s what she has to say:
“I am an artist based in Kingston Upon Thames in South West London and all my work is made with animal free products. I work in a spontaneous style and find that this a creative outlet for me to express myself which is something I have some difficulty with due to having Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. My style and approach to the way I now paint developed as I discovered I was experiencing problems with reading text, however painting has now become a positive and important part of my day to day life. I gain pleasure in the different ways people of all ages react to my work and the way they see things in my paintings that are important to them.”

“Peace on Earth begins with birth’
Hypnobirthing helps you to achieve a calm, comfortable, beautiful birth experience. It helps you to get rid of any fears or anxieties you may have. And gives you the tools you need to have the birth that you choose. Hypnobirthing empowers women to trust in and use their body’s natural abilities to bring about a calm and comfortable birth. It teaches women that they don’t have to be afraid of birth and, when they trust their bodies, they will relax during, and even enjoy, the physical sensations of childbirth.
Zenbirth was founded in 2011 by Gina Potts and now operate throughout London. Locally you are serviced by Mara Fekete (SW London) and Sophia Smythe Davis (Surrey) and we offer group or private courses in your own home.
At ZenBirth we all believe that birth can be a positive, empowering experience for both the mum and the baby too. Using simple breathing techniques and specific relaxations, mothers and their birth partners can create a calm, positive atmosphere, where they feel comfortable. With a bit of practice, they are able to change their mindset about the fear of childbirth.
The ZenBirth practitioners are all passionate about childbirth, and most of us personally experienced the positive effects of hypnobirthing, at the birth of our own baby. This is why we are committed and why we became practitioners, because we believe that birth is not something to be scared of.
