Listening to your body and honoring its signals is one of the true forms of self-love!
I am a full qualified Registered Nutritionist with a Masters in Life Science & Nutrition, and wealth of experience on helping people to become healthy, energised and fit, equipping them with knowledge and techniques to improve their life style. I am also certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician who will treat the cause of your problem and not focus only on the symptoms. My counseling is always reasonable, easy to understand and kept up to date with the latest scientific sources.
Lifestyle Medicine is a distinct field of medicine aimed at "treating the cause" of most of modern diseases with the strongest evidence-based modalities avaiable. Since most modern diseases are caused by lifestyle, lifestyle changes must be part of the cure.
Consultations can be arranged:
- face to face, I am happy to visit you at home or wherever suits you best
- online, via Zoom, What'sApp, Messanger etc
Your first session will look at important aspects of your previous and current diet and lifestyle, your personal health history as well as medications, treatments or food issues you have, so that my recommendations do not interfere with other care you receive.
Then I will create an action plan according your needs, and we will set realistic, timely and attainable goals. What’s more, I will develop a personalised Nutrition Program with a detailed diet plan and suggested recipes tailored especially to you.
You will also get a prescription for lifestyle changes which covers: physical activity, stress management and emotional wellness, sleep, positive psychology.
There is a new 45 genetic marker test available which includes Gluten sensitivity gene, the original panel of 7 plus a new panel of 32 genetic markers. Based on the latest scientific discoveries in the field of nutrigenomics and includes several that are not available elsewhere. They provide actionable information for weight management, nutrient metabolism, heart health, food intolerances, eating habits and physical activity. It has to be good thing – and there is nothing which is more personalised than your genes.
Some of my key areas of expertise include weight management, gastrointestinal diseases (Crohn's, Irrit. bowel syndrome, celiac, ulcerative colitis, hemorrhoids, etc), any eating disorder, food intolerance, thyroid problems, pregnancy and preconception, fatigue, skin health, hormonal imbalances, auto-immune disease (including Hashimoto's Disease), etc.
I enjoy providing women's nutrition and healthy eating guidelines, focusing on pregnant women and new mums, helping them to recover and get in shape after all the changes in their bodies, as well as delivering them workshops on weaning and childhood nutrition, including fussy eaters.
Additionally, I work with clients looking for Sport Nutrition Strategies for their athletic performance or to manage their medical conditions with a balance diet.
If you have chosen to become Vegetarian, Vegan, Whole Food Plant-Based Diet or to remove dairy and wheat from your diet - I can guide you to make sure you are not omitting nutrients as well as help you to create a delicious menu of options so you do not miss out on the enjoyment of food.
I usually work providing one-to-one advice for individuals, as well as delivering services to non-profit organisations, running nutrition training courses, consultancy to schools, etc. I am offering my services to any business and brands that require nutritional expertise.
