I'm a holistic health coach. I have experience in various disciplines that lead me to believe that the best approaches to good health are holistic in nature.
I started my professional career as a licensed physical therapist , after that I founded and operated my own physical therapy practice, and started and operated the wellness spa at Edde Sands and later a holistic wellness centre and spa in Kuwait.
I travelled extensively to India, and trained there to become a certified yoga teacher in Kerala, where later I organised detox retreats.
In 2011 I completed my degree in Integrative Nutrition and became a certified health coach. I worked as a health coach, specialized in food intolerance and detox diets, and organizes corporate workshops on health and wellness and a lot of workshops with NGO’s for youth refugees on self-development .I am a frequent contributor on various TVs and radios programs .
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, or proteins. Nor is it to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy and healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.Together we will work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, and balance your health.
Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:
Bio-individuality: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that is why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I will support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
Primary Food: It is easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It is not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired fulfilling life.
