to help you get to know me better
I had not always been an example to follow in the area of nutrition, fitness and an overall healthy lifestyle. For very many years I lead a very busy corporate life, living in one of the busiest cities on Earth and I travelling on business by plane weekly. It seemed like a good fun at the time but even then deep down I recognised that my health and wellbeing were being affected by this busy lifestyle and not enough self-care. At the same time I had 100% faith in conventional medicine and in moments of any health issues I blindly trusted opinions of conventional doctors, which unfortunately had its consequence after all. Looking back I can see that not lack of time but rather massive lack of knowledge and right inspiration around me were to blame for the sufficient level of self-care.
Increased physical activity including yoga were the first steps towards a healthier lifestyle. I started taking a lot of interest in healthy diets and finally discovered functional medicine. In the beginning, and before professional qualifications, blogs, publications and books were the source of my knowledge. I then qualified as Personal Trainer, Primal Health Coach and obtained diploma in Advanced Functional Nutrition. Currently I am on my way towards becoming a Naturopath.
Today I understand very well that human body is not made up of separate and independent systems but rather interconnected and interdependent systems that constitute the whole. I know that in case of any health issues we must identify the source and by addressing it focus on ‘uncreating’ the disease. I trust deeply that our health and wellbeing must have solid fundaments such as: healthy diet, physical movement, good sleep and relaxation, reduced volume of toxins in our immediate environment (including water, food & cosmetics), solid relationships, good quality hydration, in some cases supplementation and finally a presence of something we feel passionate about in our lives.
