Why meeting with a nutritionist health practitioner ?

healthy way of life lausanne santemis

The health world is filled with abundant yet conflicting information that can make it challenging to accomplish your goals. Sometimes we need a professional to help quiet the noise and navigate this surplus of information, while holding us accountable to be our best selves.

Working with a Holistic Health Coach means working with a professional who can provide you with nutrition, wellness and lifestyle management tips while coaching you along the way.

We tailor our approach to best serve your needs – whatever they may be. Whether it is nutritional counseling, meal planning or creating a healthier sleep environment, a personal health coach is there to make it more attainable. We are committed to making your health journey a successful one. We are here to guide you.

Healthy nutrition along with exercise and quality supplementation are crucial to feeling optimal. Additionally, a healthy work-life balance, adequate “Me Time” and fulfilling relationships with family and friends are all priorities that I also encourage to incorporate into daily routines. Working as your partner in health, we will uncover the root causes of your current conditions or illnesses and work together to improve your health condition.

My practice

I offer individualized care integrating holistic nutrition and naturopathic medicine. Eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet offers one of the simplest, most effective ways of reducing your risk of heart disease, type II diabetes, and other health problems, as well as helping you to lose weight.

I work with you to help make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and wellbeing. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.

How does it work

An initial consultation will be scheduled to discuss your specific health and wellness goals. Together we will go through the areas that you would like to improve upon and identify the ways to best accomplish your specific needs. You will walk away from the consultation with tangible tips and tools to get started.

After each session, you will receive a detailed program that is completely customized for you with specific recommendations to begin implementing immediately. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled once a month depending on your needs, and we will continue to dive deeper to provide you with more structure, advice, and support.

Testimonials

Who am I ?

My name is Sonia, I graduated with a MSc. in cellular and molecular biology and I worked 20 years in medical scientific research, first as a research engineer and then as a clinical project manager working in several multinational pharmaceutical and food companies. I am also a happy nutritionist and health practitioner with a deep passion for holistic human health. From an early age, I was fascinated by the physiological mechanisms that promote health. Driven by the belief that health is intimately linked to physical, mental, and emotional well-being, I studied nutrition, natural medicine, yoga, and meditation for a healthy and balanced life.

Q&A: Frequently Asked Questions

During our first appointment, we will get to know each other, explore your situation, and identify your main objective. We will develop together your nutritional program and the implementation of the steps towards your goal.

At the end of the consultation, I will send you within 48 hours by email your program with a natural supplement’s prescription.
You will also receive an invoice at the end of each session for the health insurance’s reimbursement.
The following consultations are spaced at least one month apart, and we will readjust your program according to your progression and experience.

Anyone who is ready to make lasting changes to their life will benefit from my programs. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, clear up a nagging digestive issue, prevent the onset of chronic disease, or just generally feel healthier and more energized, these programs will work for you, as long as you’re enthusiastic and involved in your Goals.

If you’re looking for another quick-fix diet that will lead to super-fast weight loss, then my programs aren’t for you. Weight lost very quickly through restrictive diets is gained back once you return to « normal » eating. My approach is different–by making small, slow changes to your habits, you will see slow and steady weight loss, and then keep the weight off for good. It is also important to note that you must be a committed partner in the process.

To get the most out of my programs you just need to open your mind to new ideas, be willing to try new things, follow the recommendations we come up with together, and have confidence in yourself that you can do this !

I use Skype for the online sessions.
