My name is Dr Shazia Faisal and, I am a medical practitioner and a registered nutritionist. I believe in preventive medicine as prevention is better than cure. Nutrition is an important pillar along with other component for a healthy life. While Medicine is invaluable when it comes to treating acute surgical conditions, preventing infectious diseases, there are certain diseases which can be truely ever be adressed by lifestyle changes for example: type 2 diabetes, PCOS, gut health issues and Heart diseases.
Nutritional education as an appendage to conventional medicine has the power to close the gap in current medical treatments; that is why I equipped my-self with a Masters Program in Clinical Nutrition from Roehampton University London. My aim is to spread evidence-based awareness and knowledge about a healthy lifestyle. I want to motivate and inspire people by giving them ideas about a balanced diet ,stress management and physical activity as healthy eating is not about weight loss but it is the life style.
Nutrition is not one size fits all, I believe personalized nutrition approach is best for long term behavioural changes. If you are struggling with or need advice with any of the following problems or condition, I am here to help you
- Gut health
- Weight Management
- Pre Diabetes and Diabetes
- Hormonal imbalance
