About me

Olianna is a qualified Naturopath & Nutritional Therapist, with a background in Science and Research. Her aim is to find the underlying cause behind any chronic condition and restore health naturally. She believes in optimal health rather than the mere absence of disease. She is also a great advocate of personalised medicine. She specialises in women's health, gastrointestinal issues, stress and weight management. She currently sees clients in London, Athens and online (Skype or other).


“Health: A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity

Services:

1) One-to-one naturopathic & nutritional consultations
2) Functional Testing

As a Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist with a scientific background, my aim is to find the root cause of any chronic condition from physiological signs to biochemical and hormonal imbalances, as well as emotional issues, and provide highly individualised plans. During the first consultation I will take a broad case history (2h) and I will advise about blood/ functional testing, when indicated. Following the consultation, I will send you a tailor-made health supporting protocol, which will include very detailed nutritional and lifestyle advice, as well as a supplement plan, if relevant.

That is what you should know prior to a consultation with me. However, if you want to learn more details about my work feel free to read below.

About Olianna

While working as a researcher and biomedical scientist in the haematology department of diagnostic health care centres, I noted the importance of prevention in health and disease. Following these years in a conventional medical setting and some health challenges of my own, I reflected upon the need of integrative therapy provision in the medical sector. I strongly believe that the key to good health lies in a preventative and holistic multimodal approach which takes into account the body as a whole, views each individual as absolutely unique, addresses the root of illness rather than just its symptoms, and in which nutrition plays an essential role.
As a Scientist and Nutritional Therapist I help people with all sorts of chronic complaints and illnesses to change their diet and lifestyle so that they can optimise their health. Given my background in scientific research and systematic reviews, I am an advocate of evidence-based medicine and will only use recommendations for which there is sound scientific evidence.

Our busy lifestyles, stress, dietary habits and polluted environment can lead to imbalances in the body. Balance can be restored by identifying the root cause the problem (physical, emotional, nutritional) and addressing it with the use of nontoxic, natural therapies. Naturopathic Nutrition can help you re-take control of your health, eating and lifestyle habits, ultimately improving your quality of life and well-being.

Naturopathic Medicine & Nutrition can help you:
- To obtain information on good food and lifestyle decisions in general

- To determine your metabolic or nutritional type and hence the right diet and supplements for your personally

- To educate you about what your signs and symptoms are implying about your health status and learn how to manage them

- To organise tests to determine biochemical imbalances and nutrient deficiencies

- To organise tests to assess your toxic level and detoxification capacity

- To plan an appropriate recovery programme, gaining education on how to manage your health by yourself and prevent serious disease

- To restore vitality, improve your quality of life and promote longevity

- Provide you with the knowledge and tools to self-care for the long term

All health and nutrition protocols are developed very meticulously; based on the latest scientific research. They are tailored to fit your unique biochemistry and bodily needs while targeting the underlying cause of your symptoms rather than the symptoms themselves, as is, unfortunately, most often seen in the conventional medical and nutritional practice.


Follow-up
- A follow-up is booked at 3-6 weeks of your initial consultation- Less frequent as improvement is seen

How quickly can I expect to see results?
- Positive changes within the first week of the initial consultation (improved energy, better sleep, improved digestion, enhanced mood and clearer mind)

- Time needed for complete restoration of balance and infirmity is highly dependent on the unique constitution of the individual, the chronicity of symptoms and the level of compliance and determination

- Unlike conventional medicine, where medication is intended to act immediately, with naturopathic medicine your body will need more time, as the aim is to provide deep healing and address the problem from its root, rather than its branches (symptoms).


How many consultations will I need?


- On average people need 3-6 consultations or 6 months to reach optimal health

FUNCTIONAL TESTING


Functional testing focuses on physiological function (i.e. how the body functions at a molecular, tissue or organ level), rather than merely the presence of markers of disease, like conventional medical testing. In most cases both are essential in order to draw a clear picture of the individual’s cause of health problems, to determine specific requirements and to re-establish equilibrium using nutritional and lifestyle intervention.


A test is most often non-invasive and typically involves a breath, blood, saliva, urine or stool sample. The majority of samples can be taken at home but a client may occasionally be asked to attend the laboratory to provide samples.


Our clinic offers a broad range of functional health tests to help assess the causes of ill health. The following is a selection of the tests available:


Gastrointestinal Tests: Digestion and Gut Function Analysis
Immunology Tests: Allergy and Antibody profiles
Endocrine Tests: Hormonal Profiles
Nutritional and Toxin Status Assessment
Metabolic Assessment
Genetic Testing
