Functional/Medicine Practioner

Fabiola Balistreri

My journey into the world of nutrition and Functional/Medicine is deeply personal. It’s rooted in significant changes I’ve seen in both my own life and the lives of those I hold dear.

Originally, I was engrossed in the captivating realm of interior architecture. I dedicated my time to designing spaces that resonated beauty and serenity. Yet, amidst this, I was struck by the health decline of many around me. One particular case that touched my heart was my mother’s diagnosis with an autoimmune disease. It signaled a profound turning point in my life’s direction.

This experience ignited a fiery passion to delve deeper into the intricate relationship between food, diet, lifestyle and holistic health. As I immersed myself further, it became crystal clear that the choices we make in what we consume, coupled with our lifestyle decisions, heavily influence our overall well-being. That’s when Functional/Medicine illuminated a new path for me. It introduced me to the idea of understanding diseases at their root causes and approaching them from a holistic standpoint, rather than merely suppressing the symptoms.

As I began to integrate this newfound knowledge into practice, I observed astonishing transformations. The most notable was in terms of physical health and overall vitality. My mother’s journey, utilizing these holistic practices, was truly miraculous. Witnessing such profound change in her and others was both enlightening and deeply inspiring.

This fire within me drove me to a pivotal career decision. Investing three dedicated years, I’m a Qualified Nutritional Therapist from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London and a Functional/Medicine practitioner from the Institute for Functional/Medicine. With these credentials, I proudly opened my clinic doors, where I remain steadfast in my commitment to guiding others towards achieving optimal health and well-being.
