Nutrition: Allow food to be your medicine
Nutrition is not merely a learned skill, but a personal passion in which continuing to strive for wellness and healing is paramount in my daily life. I combine a unique background in scientific research, holistic health studies and specialist clinical training in nutrition at New York Presbyterian Hospital (University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell) with an inherent knowledge of mind-body medicine. Driving my approach is the simple fact that without the proper tools and resources, the body cannot truly heal from any health ailment. Medications may mask the underlying causes of illness; only whole foods can provide the necessary building blocks for renewed and maintained health. Nutrition counseling serves as both preventative medicine and as treatment for current, active health problems without the negative side effects of medications and surgeries, which are increasingly over prescribed.
I am a Registered Dietitian, fully accredited by both the American Commission on Dietetic Registration and the UK's Health Professions Council: The RD credential is reserved only for those nutritionists who have completed rigorous clinical and academic training, so you are in very safe hands no matter what health challenges you are facing. I combine my clinical background with a holistic, intuitive approach, treating a broad range of conditions (both chronic and acute) with much experience in specialities mentioned below. In addition to private practice I also provide nutrition lecturing and corporate wellness services. While offering the classic one-to-one counselling sessions, I also treat couples, families and groups pursuing greater health using food as medicine. For long distance clients, I use skype, which has proven to be a very friendly way to interact.
I am a very warm, positive, inspired practitioner and promise to provide each client with a calm, friendly and absolutely non judgmental environment within which to face health challenges.
I am committed to providing the best service for my clients by staying up to date with the latest reliable nutrition research and by being as supportive as I possibly can to help them achieve their goals. Once a client is under my treatment I am fully available between meetings via phone and email. You can expect full nutritional analysis of blood tests, a treatment plan entirely devised for you and lots and lots of practical and educational advice to show you how simple it can be to make positive nutritional and lifestyle changes.
