Hi everyone and welcome to my profile,
My name is Dominica and I am a qualified nutritionist with the elements of functional medicine, herbalist and plant-based chef. I’ve been running my health practice for over 5 years now working with an array of different health issues and supporting my clients through personalised consultations, workshops and courses.
I haven’t always been health conscious. My journey started back in 2011 when I ended up with fatigue and very severe eczema flare up all over my body. After going to my GP for over 9 months and getting nowhere, I started getting depressed and very anxious. At the time, I was running my own marketing company and my inability to work and meet clients really affected my income and threatened my business. It was a vicious circle, as stress destroys our immune system, puts our hormones out of the balance and impacts our digestion. During my last doctor visit, I was told: "There's not much we can do. You need to learn to live with this… I can prescribe some anti-depressants, that will make you feel better“.
It's not the most motivational reply, especially if you are doing so poor mentally, isn't it?
That day I came back home and through tears started researching natural methods to help my conditions. I came across many stories from people being able to finally overcome various chronic and autoimmune conditions by following a whole food plant-based diet.
I decided to give it a try and went vegan overnight.
And to cut the long story short...
Plant-based diet cleared my eczema within just a couple of weeks, and from the poor, itchy and constantly in pain for over 9 months to the most radiant and glowing skin I have ever had is great to me.
It was the beginning of the most profound and exciting journey. The new beginning on so many levels, that became the true part of my life and my belief system when I realised how factory farming and our food choices affect our planet.
I decided to change my career and studied nutrition, herbal medicine, functional medicine, as well as a few other modalities including Ayurveda, naturopathic principles, iridology, mindfulness, Body Soul Fusion technique and opened my online health and wellbeing practice in 2015.
Since that time I supported over 1200 clients through workshops, courses, and 1-2-1 coaching and consultations.
I still cannot believe that it all happened back in 2011/2012. The year of hell on so many levels, not only health-related (the story is long and full of lessons, so that's a material for a book). But in order to really change, understand and get out of your comfort zone, you need a breakthrough event... sometimes you just need to have your world destroyed so you can start building something much better from the beginning.
I can help you reach your optimum health goals by using the bio-individual approach and merging the best of functional medicine and integrative therapeutics. Get in touch today to book your Free 20 minute EXPLORATORY call.
