Since my Childhood, I had suffered with digestive issues like chronic constipation, bloating, stomach pain, heartburn as well as unexplained weight gain. Over the years I had tried so many things to resolve my health issues as well as tried many diets to lose weight. However nothing had ever worked the way I expected and it was very frustrating.
Deep inside I knew there had to be something that I could do and then decided to educate myself in all holistic approaches to overall health and went on to receive my designation as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition.
Since becoming a Certified Nutrition Practitioner, I have seen profound effects of improved diet and lifestyle not only in myself but also within my family. I have taken back control of my life and never felt better! With individualized nutrition plan and lifestyle changes you can also take back control of your life.
I opened my nutrition consultation, Holistic Shifaa, with a focus of helping women to improve their Digestive Health, Bowel Health, Hormonal Balance, Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes and Weight Loss. I work passionately with clients to successfully improve their nutritional and emotional well being. My goal is to help educate, inspire and motivate clients to abundant health.
In addition to my Nutrition training, I also participated in a Metabolic Balance® Program, studying the principals and teachings of Dr. Wolf Funfack, and completed certification in Metabolic Balance® Coaching. It is all natural and scientifically proven weight loss program. I do not only focus on losing the weight but also teach you the tool to keep it off for life.
A balanced metabolism is necessary to maintain healthy hormones, blood lipids profile, blood glucose levels as well as more effective and efficient weight loss.
I know how it feels like to be frustrated, tired and hopeless when nothing worked. Trust me, you do not have to live like this. Let me help you to listen to your body and make a change towards a healthier, happier and leaner you!
