Nice to meet you..
Hi! I am Dora,
Skin and health issues can be devastating.
They can control the way we live our lives, influence how we feel on a daily basis and even affect relationships and the lives of those close to us. Not being able to find the right answers to heal can be even more frustrating.
I know this first hand because it is my story.
I have had several health challenges during the course of my life. First with my skin which began when I was a child, constantly experiencing skin issues like: rashes and eczema, and later in life with the diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disease.
Those challenges inspired me to study different disciplines to search for real solutions to reclaim my health and get my life back.
I first became a Paramedical Aesthetician, and went to work with dermatologists for over a decade looking for answers, I learned a lot about skin, however; I also discovered that there was a huge gap in the way chronic skin conditions were treated in mainstream medicine, addressing only the symptoms without looking into the root cause of the problem, so symptoms inevitably return.
I was prescribed costicosteroid creams over and over again as the only option without considering other lifestyle factors.
Still puzzled for answers I continued my studies into holistic methods and functional and holistic nutrition and quickly realized that healing can only occur when we address the whole person and consider all aspects of the body and mind that contribute to create health and optimize body functions.
My second challenge with autoimmune disease, came later in life after experiencing high levels of stress. Thankfully, by then I already knew how to work with my body and right away created a regimen with targeted nutrition and lifestyle shifts that within a few months got me into remission.
Now, my mission is to share my knowledge and my experience with other people and empower and support them in their own health journey by listening to their story and educating them on food nourishment and lifestyle interventions to help them reach their goals in a simplistic and realistic manner.
