Hello, I am Martina and I am a passionate believer in the body’s ability to heal itself, if given the right tools.
During my early years I watched my grandmother as she tended to her allotment and cooked with home grown fruit and vegetables and prepared tea and ointments from natural ingredients sourced from her garden.
Growing up in the Czech Republic, on a small holding, meant that the majority of my spare time was spent tending to the vegetable patch or livestock. The land provided us with freshly grown vegetables for our daily meals and grain to feed the animals. This meant that I learned first-hand that the benefits of eating freshly grown vegetables greatly outweighed the energy and hard work we put in.
Cooking with my mother and father quickly became my favourite past times (especially around Christmas when the excitement mounted). It was these special moments that prompted me to study cookery in Melbourne Australia, where I subsequently qualified in Cookery. This was however, only part of my long term goal and soon after moving to Britain my interest in the nutritional benefits of specific foods increased.
With the rising amount of convenience foods, crash diets and sugar consumption it was clear to me that many health complaints could be resolved by a wholesome and nutritionally rich diet.
My love of good food and Nutrition led me to study at the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine where I qualified as Nutritionist. I am also a fully insured member of the British Association of applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Nutrition plays an important role in the promotion of health and Nutritional therapy can identify potential nutritional imbalances and how these can contribute towards symptoms.
My passion is to help people to achieve their goals, through utilising my knowledge and experience and by supporting them to improve their health, increase their energy and achieve their goals.
