A Complete Approach to Health
As a registered Nutritional Therapist and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, my approach is holistic and rooted in scientific study and data.
Functional Medicine seeks to find and address the root causes of disease and views the body as a whole, as opposed to a collection of isolated systems.
It combines traditional Western medical practices, working in conjunction with your GP, alongside a focus on prevention through nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
Functional Medicine also makes use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques and prescribed combinations of botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic meal plans, detoxification programs, and stress-management techniques
Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Open + Transparent
Staying open, friendly and kind is important to me and this is how I will always treat the women who work with and invest in me and my greater community.
I will always recommend the best quality tools and supplements because I believe your health is worth investing in. There’s no point spending less money on something that won’t work!
We can achieve the best results when we work in harmony. I also believe that harmony between the mind, body and spirit is vital to living a healthy life.
I will never push my own personal values on others, nor judge them for the decisions they have made or values that they hold. I am here to help in a way that fits with your lifestyle.
"The first time I met Natalia, I was so impressed by her lively personality, energy and her ability to put me at ease. I am so happy with the results I have achieved so far and happy to say that good eating habits are now part of my lifestyle. Natalia is very approachable and helpful and I feel very lucky to have her in my life. I know she genuinely cares about my health and will always be there for me. I cannot recommend her enough!"
