On a mission to boost her family’s health for winter, Sharon Struckman finds the answer in Hertford’s Natural Health store

After a wonderful summer of food and drink festivals, I decided to Go Healthy before Christmas and get my family’s health back on track and ready for winter. I found myself Googling healthy food options and supplements and in doing so discovered an amazing shop aptly named Natural Health.

Julie Goodwin is a lover of vitality, fitness and all things natural who opened her first Natural Health store in Hertford in 1997. It’s packed to the rafters with natural, healthy and organic foods. The shop’s food and drink range is fantastic; ranging from traditional basics like nuts, seeds and honey to special dietary foods such as gluten and dairy-free produce. And for all you gym and sports enthusiasts they have all the supplements you need to help reach your goals.

The shop not only focuses on what you put in your body but what you put on it too and you will find a huge range of natural and organic body care products to make you feel wonderful. Throughout the range Julie prides herself on stocking items from smaller independent suppliers that can be difficult to find in the usual high street shops. The friendly staff are highly trained with great product knowledge and will answer your questions on all things healthy and natural.

As well as in Hertford there is a Natural Health shop in Welwyn GC. They are open 9–5 Monday to Saturday. You can also find the store online at
