Food and nutrition expert Susan Fletcher-Brockdorff, whose work has featured around the world, has died aged 58.
She was known for her published works in magazines, cook books and health food publications in the Netherlands and Hong Kong.
She also qualified as a clinical nutrition consultant in 1991, and practiced in iridology - gauging health through people's eye irises - herbalism and homoeopathy.
Mrs Fletcher-Brockdorff, from Sustead near Cromer, also became one of the first naturopaths to use deep intestinal cleansing, later adopted as a key issue at the root of many diseases by most natural therapists.
Combining her knowledge of nutrition and her husband Clive Brockdorff's job as a bee keeper, the couple developed products for apitherapy, a therapy which uses products derived from bees as medicine.
