About me

Thank you for your interest in the work I do and let me briefly share with you some of my professional journey which started over 30 years ago. After gaining Doctor of Medicine degree (Rostov-on-Don State Medical University, Russia, 1984-1991) I practiced as an MD specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for 12 years in Russia and Ghana, and gained a lot of clinical and life experience. However, I became increasingly aware of the limitations of conventional medical approach and expanded my expertise far beyond it to include:

  • A Postgraduate Degree in Naturopathic Nutrition (College of Naturopathic Medicine, Edinburgh, 2006-2008)
  • Studying further in the areas of Bioenergy Medicine (NES Health, UK, since 2016)
  • Functional Medicine (IFM, USA, since 2011) with particular focus on Mineral Dysregulations and Mitochondrial dysfunctions (RCP Institute, USA, since 2018)
  • Gastrointestinal Microbiota imbalances assessment and correction (Russia, since 2019).

All the above add up to unique set of skills and expertise combined with my ever-growing passion for Health and Healing. My current practice approach can be described as Functional / Nutritional Medicine that goes beyond the standard models.

Understanding that every person is unique and treating the whole person, not the symptoms, my aim is to identify and address the TRUE root causes of dysfunctions in order to support healing and/or maintain your optimal health.

Your present state of health is the result of the interplay of many different factors over your lifetime, i.e., diet, lifestyle, stress levels, environmental, including your inherited genetic strengths and weaknesses.

We all have innate ability to heal, and your personal journey will be as unique as you are in the approach required, experiences, length, and level of commitment.

I will be glad and privileged to assist you on your healing journey. If you resonate with the above information and ready to start making a positive difference to your own health, the next step would be to register your interest.

Please, email your enquiry here stating your full name, reason for getting in touch and your contact details (phone number and preferred time for a call).

Our team member will get back to you and advise on the most appropriate way forward which depends on your health goals, state of health, level of commitment and our availability.

My broad knowledge of Functional and Nutritional medicine underpinned by conventional medical training allows me to define unique personalised approaches to restoring health.

Patients I work with benefit from a comprehensive health and nutritional assessment based on my clinical analysis and appropriate functional laboratory testing. This leads to Personal Health Programmes that address the individual’s needs and goals inclusive of nutritional and dietary recommendations, lifestyle coaching, naturopathic and metabolic detoxification protocols.

Areas of particular interest are:

  • Women's health, fertility and conception nutritional support
  • SIBO (bacterial overgowth), SIFO (fungal overgrowth), IBD, Reflux, sluggish bowel, Dysbiosis, etc.
  • Mytochondrial dysfunctions
  • Hormonal imbalances: Thyroid, Adrenal, etc
  • Methylation defects
  • Weight loss / management
  • Mood disorders
  • Low energy
  • Immune system dysfunctions
  • Mineral dysregulation (iron, copper, magnesium, calcium imbalances) and related conditions 
  • Vitamin D history of supplementation and related mineral imbalances
  • Metal toxicity/detoxification.

I offer personal consultations, group workshops and training sessions for practitioners.

Continuous Postgraduate professional development is a major factor helping me to achieve the highest standards of practice.
