Nada Farina BSc MSc ANutr

Founder, Nutritionist, Microbiologist, Author

I founded Nutrivisia in 2015 with an aim to provide a personalised, evidence-based and realistic nutritional and lifestyle protocols to individuals and corporates looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

I understand that it can be a challenge to know what steps to take in nutrition in every day life or even after receiving a quick and often very limited nutritional advice from either your GP, or a Consultant or after reading all the conflicting nutritional updates from the Media. Nutrivisia fills this gap in that it provides evidence-based nutritional advice uniquely tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle. We are all different and have different deck of genetic cards and therefore ‘one fits all approach’ does not work. 70% of modern-day illnesses are caused by lifestyle factors and can be reversed or halted by changing our diet and lifestyle. Diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity are at an all-time high and to change this, we need the right knowledge and time to carefully craft the personalised nutritional and lifestyle plans according to individual’s specific needs and lifestyle ensuring that they are realistic as well as achievable. At Nutrivisia we do exactly that – we deliver realistic health solutions based on your present state of health, your genetics, diet and lifestyle.

There really is no greater wealth than a good health and nutrition is a powerful tool to achieve this. But firstly, we need to know how our body works and what it needs or it doesn’t need and then we can use food as our ticket to a long-term health and wellness.

You may be fit and healthy already and you may think that there is nothing more that you need to know about your nutritional and lifestyle needs but a reality is that you cannot possibly know how healthy you really are unless you assess your health as many conditions are asymptomatic at an early stage. At Nutrivisia we offer Well Woman and Well Man Health Assessments giving you a clear picture of your general health and wellbeing.

You really are in charge of your own health destiny and we are here to give you profound tools and show you how to make the right changes.

My journey into nutrition began 8 years ago when my children were diagnosed with food intolerances to gluten, diary, soya and nuts. Since then I have spent considerable amount of time learning about nutrition and applying it in practice. With my help, both of my children outgrew their intolerances by age 5.

I gained Master’s degree in Human Nutrition and have also written ‘Gluten, Dairy, Soya and Nut Free Cooking’ book that has been internationally published by the New Holland Publishers in 2015. The book includes information about allergies and intolerances, balanced healthy eating, replacing nutrients lost through eliminating milk and dairy, raising allergic children and information on food labelling.

In this book I combine my scientific knowledge and culinary enthusiasm to demonstrate how food free from dairy, gluten, soya and nuts can be wonderfully tasty, easily prepared as well as nutritionally balanced.

Prior to qualifying as a Nutritionist, I gained BSc Honours Degree in Microbiology from Imperial College in London and after my research programme in genetics, I also gained MSc in International Management and have then been working in the Investment Banking industry in the city of London for over 10 years. I have also been awarded the Associateship of the Royal College of Science.

As a former investment banker, I understand how long hours and challenging deadlines, mixed with client lunches and travel, often make eating healthily, as well as sleeping adequately, a real challenge. It eventually takes its toll as you become too busy to prioritize your health.
Being stressed out, short on time, tired and struggling to fit health and fitness into your busy schedule are just a few things very familiar to most of us these days.

Now is better time than ever to prioritize your health, your greatest wealth. No matter what your health goal is, you need a well-defined plan to reach it as ‘without a plan, you plan to fail’ You are unique, so is the health and nutrition protocol that you need.

I’m committed to creating a world where the right nutritional knowledge and resources are accessible to all.

“Nada’s approach to healthy eating and nutrition is grounded in realistic ambitions, taking into account individual needs and lifestyles. Dedicated and professional, Nada is charming, with an easy, warm manner. The personal attention I’ve received has been second to none.”
G Rafferty

“Nada helped me to lose 7kg and meet my target weight! Thank you so much for all your patience and encouragement. I couldn’t be happier!”
S Matic

“I can honestly say that Nada has transformed my life. I struggled with my weight since I had my first child but within about 2 months I’ve lost 6kg and now feel energised and so happy again. When I’d started Nada’s Gold programme, I must admit I was cautious about coaching in the beginning, but Nada is just brilliant at it. You somehow warm up to her and you feel like you have been friends for years. All her advice is always sensible, pragmatic and tailored to you. I can never recommend her highly enough.”
E Smith

Amazon Reviews
***** Truly excellent book! Well set out

By Claudiu on 13 Nov. 2015
Truly excellent book! Well set out, easily readable and every recipe has a photo which makes it easier to decide what to cook. It includes the nutritional information section for every ingredient which is an extra bonus I think. There is also additional useful information about things such as the Eatwell plate diet. I am intolerant to dairy, soya and gluten and was really struggling to find a book that would include ‘normal’ everyday recipes while excluding all these ingredients. I already tried two of my favourite dishes, beef lasagne and crème caramel, that I actually thought I will never be able to eat again. All of those dishes tasted even better than I remember. There are many other recipes that I am looking forward to try.

***** Great book

By Amazon Customer on 8 Dec. 2015
This book is fantastic. It is beautifully presented, easy to follow and, above all, very practical, all of which made my transition to a dairy/gluten/soya free diet much easier. There is a fantastic selection of interesting recipes; I made the potatoes and Jerusalem artichoke dauphinoise last night and it was really delicious, even though it was made without cream! I highly recommend this book for anyone on a restricted diet – it will vastly broaden your meal repertoire.

***** This timely cookbook is a brilliant amalgam of every kind of intolerance you are likely …

By Annie B on 15 Dec. 2015
This timely cookbook is a brilliant amalgam of every kind of intolerance you are likely to encounter. And Nada Farina’s first hand experience of the subject really shines through, the recipes have real conviction and are clearly original and the work of a cook who has been faced by the serious challenge of her children not being able to eat so many foodstuffs. Her cakes are fab! You really cannot tell that any of the usual ingredients are absent.
