Juan Lainez, Dip CNM, mBANT, CNHC
I landed in the nutrition field almost by accident in 2012 when I started to work for a multinational health company in London. In the beginning, I felt totally lost in my role because it was not related to my previous job as a journalist. However, soon my curiosity for understanding how things work in the world of nutrition drove me to study nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London in 2015.
CNM provided me with the basic, relevant and great knowledge to become a nutritional therapist, but it is my own research, my curiosity to continuously expand my knowledge and working with my clients that are shoring up my wisdom in the field of nutrition.
As a nutritional therapist, my mission will be helping people to achieve a new beginning in their life using the most powerful tool given by the mother nature: natural food. A type of natural food considered as a medicine to improve health, boost immunity, prevent diseases and relief symptom.
My passion for nutrition, communication and writing will be combined and reflected in my social media channels with a unique purpose: to make a healthier world!
Training, qualifications & experience
I successfully completed a three-year diploma course in two years due to my passion for nutrition. Therefore, I am a fully qualified nutritional therapist and a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT). I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
