Cecilia's Story

To tell you a little bit about myself I am a Holistic Health Coach trained and certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I am currently working on my Clinical Nutrition Masters Degree with emphasis in obesity and diabetes. I am a cancer survivor and my passion is health and fitness. My mission is to inspire people around the world to permanently transform their lives. I been working in this arena for over twenty-five years through a highly personalized approach to physical and emotional wellbeing. Trained in a broad range of exercises and dietary methodologies, my approach is an evolution in the practice of nutrition. My core philosophy is that as we face an explosion of chronic diseases, we need to identify and address the underlying causes (often linked to lifestyle choices) rather than relying purely on conventional medicine that is often too late or insufficient to comprehensively treat the issue.


As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, I am one of the pioneers of Functional Medicine in the UAE. By preventing illness and looking for the root of the cause of the disease before it happens, My one-on-one coaching program is designed for someone who is ready to make changes in their life. My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of good and bad foods. It is not to spend hours in the gym everyday. Instead, I work with my clients to create happy, healthy, lives in a way that is flexible, fun, and rewarding. I specialize in areas such as achieving optimal weight, detox programs, increasing fitness, improving digestion, addressing inflammation, reducing cravings, improving sleep, mindfulness practices, maximizing energy, and achieving whole family health, through the customization of both exercise and dietary programs that meet the unique needs of each client and often their families.

Why do I do Wellness Programs?

My battle with breast cancer was in many ways a process of renewal for my body, mind, and spirit. I realized how much toxicity builds up in every aspect of our lives and how important it is to continuously renew and cleanse our minds, spirits, and bodies. To reflect. To breathe. To nourish. To sweat. And most importantly for me ... to inspire people to live better and healthier lives. I decided to study Functional Medicine because part of me always wonders why I got Cancer.

“All of us can be victims of a range of serious health conditions (which I call Zombie attacks) and as a breast cancer survivor and Functional Medicine Health Coach, I am passionate to help you achieve a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. My programs will encourage you to be your best self and reduce the risk of going through an experience like I did. However, if the Zombie attack does happen, at least you’ll be in the best possible health to maximize your chances for survival and to live a full and meaningful life in the years ahead.”
