My passion for health and nutrition stems from when I was a child growing up in Iran and Italy where I was surrounded by wonderful cuisine. My love of food inspired me to write a book comprised of authentic Persian recipes that further inspired me to think more deeply about how food impacts our health and wellbeing. I returned to full-time education to better understand the science behind food and soon became fascinated by the role a good diet plays in preventing all kinds of illnesses or in addressing existing illnesses. Indeed, I soon began to consider my own personal relationship with food. In the past I had been quite fussy about food and managed to maintain a healthy weight. However, once I dug a little deeper, I discovered that, despite being healthy and slim, I was within the prediabetic range and that autoimmune conditions run in my family. Reflecting on this, I remembered that when I was a child, I observed that my grandfather had trouble moving his neck and it was only when I began studying that I realised that his was due to Ankylosing spondylitis (AS). At first, I felt a sense of panic, imagining that like my grandfather and other members of my family I might develop some sort of autoimmune condition, especially having checked my genes and realised that I am a likely candidate to develop autoimmune and also some other diseases like Alzheimer’s. Following four years of research, however, I arrived at the conclusion that our genes only play a small role in determining our health and wellbeing and that it is diet and lifestyle that cause our genes to become active or stay dormant for the rest of our lives.
You may be surprised to learn that many chronic diseases, such as autoimmune, diabetes, heart attacks, Parkinson’s and even Alzheimer’s are preventable. Did you know most of these conditions begin to develop at least 10 years in advance of any symptoms? By the time many conditions are diagnosed it is often too late to treat the disease. It is clear from the research I have conducted over the past four years that allopathic medicine in its current form cannot provide all of the answers for some of the most common chronic conditions and in particular autoimmune management.
I began to practice on members of my family and was encouraged by the results I achieved and am now specialising in chronic conditions with my current clients. My passion and mission as a practitioner is to help people who are suffering from chronic conditions and have failed to find a solution. In order to understand a wide range of condition I decided to learn about genetics, attending a full genetic course. The more I learn the more I realised that chronic disease doesn’t have to be chronic, it is a condition that can be managed. It doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of pain and suffering. A holistic approach to nutrition can make you feel better and it doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive from conventional medicine.
It is my belief that patients that suffer from all kinds of illnesses can be active collaborators in their healthcare and this is something I strive to achieve. I am committed to using my knowledge to help those with autoimmune conditions, metabolic diseases, digestive issues and thyroid complications to feel better in their health journey.
As a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC), you can trust that I keep up to date with the latest scientific research in health and nutrition.
