About Me


BSc (Hons) Acupuncture, BA (Hons), MBAcC, LicAc

Esther is trained in both Five Element and TCM acupuncture and is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAaC). She studied a 4 year BSc (Hons) degree in acupuncture and gained her licence at the prestigious College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. In clinic she treated patients under personal supervision of the legendary acupuncturist John Hicks.

Being a member of the BAaC means that the training is to the highest standards and assures that all ethical, clinical and safety guidelines are met.

Esther has treated a wide variety of physical and emotional conditions and has a special interest in infertility and urogenital conditions for over a decade.

She has co-presented her research into Interstitial Cystitis alongside consultant urologist Steve Foley and acupuncturist Toni Tucker at the British Acupuncture Council Conference.

Before training in acupuncture Esther was a management consultant.


Frustrated that she (Esther Holford) was unable to find a reliable supply of Natren in the UK for herself, her family and her patients Esther decided to ship the product directly from Natren in California to the UK so that every step of the products journey were guaranteed temperature controlled and a delivery time of only days.

“I have tried many probiotic products over the years with patients that have had good results but Natren is a level above everything I have tried. It brings benefits so quickly - I have yet to find anything that matches them. This is why it was so important for me source them properly.”

This eCommerce store ensures that all probiotics are received, stored and delivered in a strict temperature-controlled environment in order to maintain their effectiveness.
