About Ruth

I began my journey into the world of natural health in my early twenties and have never looked back. However, I’ve noticed that people seem to be getting sicker and more tired despite the ever-increasing amount of information there is available on health and wellbeing.   I think it is because we stop ‘listening to our bodies’ – we ignore signs and symptoms and keep push, push, pushing.

So, over the years I have changed the way I work with people and I now leave most of the work to you – I am here to guide you and support you, but it is up to you to discover what really works for you.

I work with clients from my home in Perth, Australia, and also offer online/telephonic consultations.  In addition, I run regular workshops in integrative health at The Health Lounge in Perth.

Here is a short interview I did in June 2020 for ThinkTree Education…it gives you a little glimpse into my life…


Dr Ruth Hull is a wonderful and thoughtful practitioner who is attentive and professional. Very skilled in her field and passionate about her work. Highly recommended.

I worked with Dr Ruth Hull remotely from Canada while she was in South Africa and then in Perth, Australia. She was a breath of fresh air for me, very different than the ‘push hard’ and ‘deny the pleasure’ messages that have been so prevalent in my life. Dr Ruth helped me see the value in listening to my body, and exploring the pleasure of healthy food.”

Qualifications

  • Master’s Degree

I hold a Master’s Degree in Homoeopathy and practised as a Homoeopathic Doctor in South Africa.  Here homoeopathic educational standards and registration are closely aligned with those of medicine.   The Master’s Degree is a 5-year full-time degree followed by 2 years in which to research and write a Master’s dissertation. The degree includes human anatomy & dissection, human physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, general pathology, systemic pathology, histology, psychology, psychopathology, homoeopathy, phytotherapy and nutrition.  In order to continually enhance my skills, I regularly attend post-graduate training in Functional Medicine, Homoeopathy, Phytotherapy, Nutrition and Biopuncture.

  • Bachelor’s Degree

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Literature and Philosophy (summa cum laude).  I continually study, write and teach in Integrative Health and am currently writing a book on Fatigue and Burnout.

  • Certified Primal Health Coach

I studied Health Coaching through the American Primal Health Coach Institute and in both my professional and personal life I focus on evolutionary-based lifestyle principles such as diet, exercise, sleep and stress-management. 

  • Diplomas in Complementary Therapies: Reflexology, Massage & Aromatherapy

I began my career in natural health in 1999 when I first studied complementary therapies in London. I hold diplomas in Reflexology, Massage and Aromatherapy and practised these for many years both in London and Durban. I then went on to do post-graduate studies in Reflexology for Pregnancy as well as Precision Reflexology (a very soft-touch treatment for chronically ill individuals or to be used in cancer-care) and I have been teaching Reflexology to both students and professionals (post-graduate studies) since 2005. In 2011 I published my first book on Reflexology, The Complete Guide to Reflexology, and in 2021 I am bringing out a second book on Reflexology.
