Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Wellness Counselor
Hello friends! I am Aksana - Holistic nutritionist and Functional nutrition and wellness counselor. I am proud to be certified by American Association of Drugless Practitioners as a Holistic Health Practitioner. I am also a doctor of nursing practice and a neonatal nurse practitioner. In November 2020, one event changed my point of view and pretty much my life! My kidney stone! For the first time in my life, I walked into a hospital in the role of a patient not a provider. This dramatic and terrifying experience drastically changed my life and my view on the allopathic medicine. As I say: my kidney stone somehow hit my brain really hard and just in right place ;o) I realized that allopathic medicine is not to cure any diseases and addressing roots of the problem, but only to mask symptoms by prescribing more and more medications. I have decided to take my health into my own hands and, using holistic and functional approach, I weaned myself off all prescribed meds (I have taken them for the last 8 years without any improvement), normalized my blood pressure and cholesterol, got rid of constant headaches, and lost a few pounds along the way ;o) I boosted my immune system and, for all this time being around sick patients, I did not cough once! Seriously! While having cold and flu several times a year before, now, in the most challenging time during the pandemic, I literally am healthier than ever!
I decided to nurture my passion for wellness and holistic nutrition, went back to school, and obtained holistic nutrition and functional wellness and nutrition counselor certifications. I spent countless hours researching, reading, and studying building up on my nursing clinical doctoral education, personal and clinical experiences. I developed several signature programs to address different health issues naturally and holistically and help people to gain back health and control of their lives.
