Unfortunately, everything the experts tell us about diet is aimed at the whole population, and we are not all the same -The Scientist Magazine
I love to eat, and to eat well as I believe that food is one of the greatest pleasures in life.
I grew up in Poland and I was brought up on traditional old fashioned diet, which I believe provided me with a wonderful framework of nutrition.
However, I also believe in the concept of bioindividuality, or the idea that everyone is unique and will not necessarily thrive on the same exact diet.
I would like to share with you the benefits of healthy eating that are based on nutrition science, which I learned during the 4 year Nutritional Therapy course with the IHS college in Dublin.

I belong to a professional organization NTOI, which represents the Nutritional Therapists of Ireland.
Over the last few years, I participated in many conferences and seminars. I am constantly trying to increase my knowledge about alternative therapies, nutrition and functional medicine.
My goal is to improve your general wellbeing, or help you with a specific issue long term, whilst enabling you to enjoy your food everyday.
• I believe that food is the cure and an effective prevention method
• That the body has an innate ability to heal itself if given the proper tools to do so. If the body expresses a particular symptom, it is trying to communicate a need that it has
• That health begins with digestion. You can eat a perfect diet, but if you are not able to digest the food, it is not going to be of any benefit to you
• That the quality of food has a profound effect on health and wellness
• I do not believe in counting calories, grams, points, or other ways that food is measured. Most people do not respond well to measuring their food in such a strict way and it is difficult to maintain long-term. I think it is much more effective to learn to listen to your body and recognize the signs that indicate you are getting enough food and the proper macronutrient ratios
• I believe that health encompasses many different aspects of life. Although nutrition obviously plays a major role, health is not just about food. Stress, sleep, environmental exposures, social support, activity levels, and many other factors can affect your health.
