I am Portuguese but the world has been my home for the last years. After living in Australia, Singapore, UK and traveling all around the world, UAE has been my home since 2015.
My own healing journey and why I am so passionate about supporting you
It all started back in 2011 when I was struggling with my own health. I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease called Graves that affected my thyroid health and consequently all areas of my life. I suffered from weight gain, hair loss, absent periods, lack of energy, tremors and anxiety, all along walking was the only exercise I could do.
I was taking around 15 pills a day and my body was getting totally intoxicated. I coulnd´t recognize myself in the mirror. My disease started to affect deeper layers of myself. Insecurity, lack of self love, negative self talk, toxic thoughts, you name it!
At that time, I had just moved to London and I felt alone, lost and uninspired. By coincidence I started working in the health food industry and connecting with amazing people that were changing their lives with food. I remember asking my doctor if there were any foods I could eat or avoid to improve my disease, and the only answer I had was: “Your problem does not have to do with food, you just have to take your pills”. Inside of me I knew that this wasn’t the right answer.
After years of struggling with my disease, my body image, my relationship with food, I finally realized that I had to learn how to love myself and take control of my life, health and happiness. My body was screaming for a change and I was the only person who could help me! I started doing yoga and meditation every day and researching day and night about the power of whole foods and gradually I started listening to my body and giving it the best nutrition I could. I took a plant-based diet full of organic and fresh products and gave up all meat, dairy, gluten, artificial sugars and processed foods and in six months I reduced my pills from 7 to 1 a day.
Now I truly love and respect my body every day! My disease is controlled and I have energy to run 10km followed by a yoga class. My weight is stagnant, my skin, hair and eyes glow from inside out and, more importantly, I found my balance and my purpose in life!
I am here to support you
Working in the health food industry in London and going through the process of naturally healing myself I realized that my mission was to share my knowledge and experience with the world and inspire people to take control of their health and happiness too. It was then that I found Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the largest nutrition school in the world, and I immediately felt that this was the right place to expand my knowledge and contribute to a healthier and happier world. And because I believe health is holistic I also become a certified Yoga Teacher.
Now it´s time to make you fall in love with yourself and empower you in all areas of your life by feeding your mind, body and spirit with the best nourishing things nature has to offer. Find how I can support you on your own healthy journey here.
