Jane Lorimer discovered the power of osteomyology when she was 24. Following a skiing accident, she found herself unable to walk or work properly and searched everywhere for a solution. After nine months of severe pain, she met a practioner who told used gentle movements to align the spine and joints. She couldn't believe that such tiny adjustments could make such a huge difference. But they did. The same day of her own treatment, she signed up to become a practioner herself. She graduated from the McTimoney Chiropractic College four years later, in 1989.
The following year, she set up The Wren Clinic, the first integrated clinic of natural medicine in the City of London. The team of 15 practitioners and a GP pioneered treatments for stress-related and chronic disease for individuals and companies.
In 1995, she wrote The Practical Guide to Candida which sold 14,000 copies. The first copies were delivered the day before the birth of her first child, Charlotte. Her son, George was born in 1998, two years after she had moved her family to Fife, in Scotland.
Jane's interest in food as medicine developed at the Wren Clinic as she was working alongside nutritionists such as Gillian Hamer. Working with people suffering with, often undiagnosed, chronic candida and gut microbiome problems, she saw how effective changes to diet and lifestyle could be. Cooking became incredibly important for her and her family. When her children were older, she enrolled at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Edinburgh and qualified as a nutritional therapist in 2013.
Her current focus is on developing Gibliston Mill into an educational and healing retreat centre.
