Andressa is a dedicated and passionate Nutritionist, she lives and breathes health. Her passion for nutrition was born out of her struggle to maintain her own health. No longer was her supercharged adolescent metabolism hiding the effects of the unhealthy lifestyle she was living and slowly her waist began to widen, the scale became something to avoid and her energy levels dropped through the floor.
There was a lot of trial and error before finally realised that her hormones and more specifically stress (cortisol) was at the root of all of her problems. There were mood swings, lack of mental clarity and insomnia… Now at least she knew what the problem was but how to deal with it was an entirely different matter.
Andressa started researching and researching and the more she looked the more confused she got… there was so much noise out there and everyone seemed to have different and conflicting approaches. It was here that she made it her mission to study and master Nutrition… She didn’t know it at the time but this was the beginning of a life long learning obsession and the more she learned the more fascinated and intrigued she got.
Armed with this knowledge Andressa became the go to for new mums, athletes, chronic fatigue patients, anyone who had hormones all over the place and those who just wanted to shed a few extra kilos.
Andressa's approach all starts with the gut and works its way out from there. Her motto “Glowing from the inside out” is really how her patients describe themselves after working with her!
After cutting through the noise and getting her own health under control it all started to become obvious why there was such dramatically different advice being given by different experts, it wasn't that the experts didn’t know what they were talking about, it was because every individual is unique and there is NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL approach and what works for one person may not work for others… But that makes it hard to sell books and so most experts settle for something that is kind of good for most people rather that what is perfect for the individual.
