Health comes from the balance of all areas of life, physical conditions, and emotional wellbeing. This statement drives my approach, therefore we consider all of this to make a personalised plan to implement slowly and make it sustainable - no quick fixes but real transformations for happier lives. I focus on making good nutrition simple, learn about how the body works and what it needs, being in tune with its messages, and optimise the different physical and stress-related areas. If there are problems or symptoms, we work on identifying their root cause for long-term health while developing self-awareness for creating new habits. I give guidance to help question assumptions, beliefs, or factors that may lead to burnout or limit in some ways. I'm also a big advocate for health and nutrition education while simplifying the practical application of it, which i find especially important nowadays that information can be confusing. And, my approach is "client-based", which means that I treat each person as unique and I build the plan according to their needs, circumstances, and objectives..
I am passionate about every topic related to health, how the body works and the life around me! As part of that curiosity, I love travelling, exploring nature and countries, learning and expanding my views, creating new recipes, walking in nature or through small streets, roaming in markets, creating projects, and painting!. I'm from Spain but have ever since i was a teenager lived abroad in many different countries, finally settled in Asia!
What is your favorite kind of workout?
Walking outdoors and cycling
What is your main focus?
My specialities are nutrition and mindset. My approach is focused on adjusting principles to each person's needs and circumstances while simplifying health. This means we work as a team for a more balanced and sustainable lifestyle considering real-life factors like family, social circles, work schedule, preferences, previous conditions, and mindset/self-development processes. I guide people to find the best method for them, provide education for lasting changes, increase body awareness, and tune to listen to their bodies. And, I promote more mindfulness and understanding health as a constant journey instead of quick fixes.
How did you get interested in health?
My health journey started as a teenager due to an autoimmune condition which caused chronic fatigue and joint pain affecting all other areas of life. Health became the priority, and by adapting my whole lifestyle, symptoms have been relieved since then. For the last fifteen years, I have been fascinated by the body, nutrition, mindfulness, and life, while devoting myself to share this passion for guiding others in their journeys. I am certified as a Nutritionist and in Fitness Nutrition by ISSA (International Sports Science Association from US) and in Advanced Nutrition by Hong Kong University (HKUSpace). I have kept learning from both Western and Eastern practices in areas like child nutrition, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, women hormonal balance, immune conditions, gut health, and compassion mindfulness practices. I'm an advocate of education and self-awareness and have self-publishing author of health guides..
What was one of the biggest health changes you’ve made?
The biggest health change was to accept an autoimmune condition as a teenager, and later on, adapt my lifestyle to it. This required a process of food elimination, finding the triggers of flare-ups, understanding the body, and finding alternatives for balanced and sustainable diet & lifestyle. Learning from this challenge, I discovered how amazing the body and the mind are, and I have been dedicated to health ever since. Having grown up in Europe but lived abroad, mainly in the East, during all my adulthood life, i try to combine lessons and wisdom from all the different parts of the world to put more balance both in my life and in my working practice
What do you think most people should do differently to be more healthy?
More mindfulness and self-awareness. Simplify your life. Include more real & unprocessed foods. Go for food variety, more veggies, enough water, and focus on quality. Prioritise sleep and move everyday. Take challenges in life as opportunities to learn. Question beliefs, ideas, expectations and assumptions that limit you more than make you grow. And, open yourself to try some some art!
