FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE SPECIALIST / YOGA SPECIALIST
My background as a therapist is composed of unique and solid knowledge that I have acquired over the years in the areas of body + mind+ emotions + spirit. I understand the individual as a “whole”, in all areas of their being, instead of just in their body.
I’m a functional medicine specialist, a nutritional therapist, a yoga teacher and a yogi at heart.
I’m currently enrolled in the prestigious Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic & Functional Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, as I have a special passion for rejuvenation and science-based yet holistic/natural therapies that extend our human lifespan by improving the functioning of the organs and systems within. I intend to specialise after the completion of this Fellowship, in Stem Cell Therapy.
I have been working privately giving consultations in England since 2011.
I have helped people from all walks of life like coaches of international football teams; cyclists; martial artists; entrepreneurs; women wishing to conceive; many people with complex digestive issues; many ladies having a tough time going through peri-menopause and menopause; people needing and wishing to lose weight; diabetics type I and II; people with eczema; PCOS; insulin resistance; insomnia; etc.
My love for health & wellness was born out of my personal experience of body – mind – emotions – spirit transformation and growth that started for me at the age of 16 and that I’m still experiencing to this day. From being unfit, very overweight, and presenting with a variety of metabolic abnormalities, I went to being one of the fittest people at all the gyms I’ve been to in the last 10 years of my life; to adopting the healthiest and most beneficial diet for my unique genetic make-up; and to learning to eat to live, instead of just live to eat. I went from eating anything and whenever I felt the urge, and from smoking and not exercising in my teenage years, to becoming a gym rat, a yogi, a nutrition geek, and mostly, to reversing reactive hypoglycaemia, insulin resistance, and hypothalamic –pituitary- adrenal axis dysfunction. I did this with the help of the wonderful functional medicine, the beauty of nutritional therapy, the wisdom of yoga, the tremendous benefits of regular and properly structured exercise, and with a renewed mind-set and positive outlook for life!
Today, I specialise in helping people to recover / maintain their health and vitality with the various therapeutic tools that I have at my disposal in my professional toolbox: nutritional therapy; epigenetics; functional lab testing; functional medicine; yoga; pranayama; meditation; mantras; prayer; etc.
The way I work during a consultation is as follows:
I take time and care to listen to each one of my clients’ stories and to discuss with them the potential triggers and antecedents of their current health issues (like family health history, childhood diseases, accidents, hospitalisations, diet, emotions, stress, etc.). I then proceed to ordering functional lab tests in order to properly investigate any biochemical glitches acting as root-causes of their health problems. Then, upon reception of the results, I devise an advanced strategy that is 100% individualised according to the unique circumstances of each client. These strategies are primarily based on healing foods; nutrients administered in therapeutic doses; advice on therapeutic exercise routines for their individual needs; and recommendations on stress management.
I’m very passionate about helping people to feel great again, and solving complicated medical cases that conventional medicine practitioners have previously addressed only with a symptomatic approach, is something I deeply enjoy doing.
For many years I’ve been studying, learning, and practicing the natural laws of wellbeing and optimum health. I can tell you now with total certainty that struggling with a disease or a disorder of any type is neither a life sentence or a punishment, but on the contrary! It is a blessing in disguise, and the beginning of a wonderful journey back to your happiest and most fulfilled YOU, and as such, a journey to embrace with an open heart.
