Teacher biographies

The following teacher provided material and lectures for this Nutritional Therapist Course.

 Mary Sharma

Mary Sharma
Mary became a nutritional therapist in 2002 after training with the Plaskett College of Nutritional medicine. Since then she has trained in many disciplines including homotoxicology, Iridology and Ayurveda.

Marys interest in nutrition started many years earlier, in her teens when her mother used nutrition to support herself whilst coming off of the many drugs that she had been prescribed for her spinal tumour a few years earlier. This was the 1970’s when there was little knowledge about nutrition or even alternative medicine. It was several years later, after the birth of her first child, that Mary discovered a small course in ‘Allergy Therapy’ which taught muscle resistance testing to identify food sensitivities. This course taught Mary how to test effectively for food and chemical sensitivities and how to assist people with dietary changes so that they could return to health. However, the course did not fully answer my questions as to why people had become intolerant to certain foods or chemicals in the first place.It was at this point, whilst still training in Allergy therapy that Mary was told of a short correspondence course in Nutrition.  This course began to answer questions for me such as why people got ill, how we can give our children a healthier future and how good nutrition was at the base of optimal health.

Mary has been in private practice since 1994 and works along-side many other disciplines. Mary's passion is now to offer training in naturopathic medicine so that other practitioners can bring this message to their clients and make this a healthier, happier place to live.


 Bill craster

Bill Craster
Sadly Bill passed away in March 2018. However his teachings live on through his wonderful contribution to this course. After qualifying as a Dietary Therapist, Bill worked in a Natural Health Centre in Devon for some years, comparing notes with Homeopaths, Osteopaths, Massage and Aromatherapists, and gaining a well rounded insight into what might be described as a philosophy of natural health. Bill loved Nutrition because it is a fascinating subject that has it's roots quite literally in the very ground we inhabit, and yet it is capable of giving rise to the most ungrounded aspirations.

Bill was for some thirty years been a student of meditation, one of the most basic tenets of which is mindfulness. The most basic question to ask anyone worried about their own nutrition is "do you enjoy eating?" and this question needs some mindfulness in order to answer it truthfully, because we all tend to eat with our attention elsewhere, and we need the strong sensations of sweet, sour, hot & cold to remind us that we're eating at all.

"Our bodies are actually equipped with much subtler sensors which can tell us whether the food is doing us any good, and if we are able to "listen" to the sensors then we can truly learn to enjoy our food. It is this cultivation of enjoyment of food that lies at the heart of his philosophy of nutrition."


Karen Carman Nutrition Tutor

Karen Carman
Karen Carman, originally trained as a Speech and Language Therapist, Karen’s interest in the power of nutritional healing was sparked after it brought her own health back to balance following period of prolonged illness. Realising this was the career for her, Karen then qualified as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist in 2001.  

Keen to further her knowledge, she later qualified with diplomas in Child Nutrition, Allergy Therapy and as a Women’s Health Practitioner.

Exploring the psychological elements of nutrition and how our emotional and core beliefs can affect our food choices is central to the way Karen works.

Karen now runs a busy private practice in Monmouthshire, weaving around her family life.
