Most modern diseases are related to lifestyle, environment, social environment, stress level and reactions to it, everyday habits. Medication provides relief, however, to prevent the progress of disease, a person has to work with himself... and it is not easy.

Nutrition is not just a basic need of a body. Dietary habits are one of the factors influencing our health.

In reality – I do not prohibit any products; I point out mistakes in nutrition and help change them by giving advice and new recipes that I have tried myself. I suggest my patients not to resist change and be determined. With willpower and determination one can achieve good results in any area of life; including the change of eating habits.
