I am a certified Nutritional Therapist Practitioner™(NTP), where I received my education from the Nutritional Therapy Association® (NTA) of America.
My philosophy is based on the belief that optimal health is based on working with the innate wisdom of the body to restore function, and bring the body back into it’s natural balance.
Working towards the ability to be able to tune into the body, and listen to the messages it so desperately wants us to hear. The body is designed to work toward repair and growth, however we can get in our own way by eating the wrong foods that do not match our bio-individual needs or we are lack a specific nutrient that can hinder functions of the body.
Movement and other key components (career, relationships and spirituality) of one’s life are of equal importance. Yoga has been an integral part of my life which I am grateful for since 2001. Starting from early childhood, I was involved in a wide variety of sports, dance and cultural events. I am a certified Yoga Teacher where I received my training at the Absolute Yoga Academy in Amsterdam. Yoga and physical exercise have been great tools that I utilise with myself and clients.
I am also a certified Health Coach. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories. My teachers included:
Joshua Rosenthal MScEd, Deepak Chopra MD, David Kat MD MPH,Walter Willett MD DrPH, Andrew Weil MD, Susan Blum MD MPH, Mark Hyman MD, Geneen Roth, David Wolfe, Gabrielle Bernstein and Marion Nestle PhD MPH.
