How Good Nutrition Can Help You
Nutritional Therapy, having its roots in Functional Medicine, does not look at symptoms in isolation but looks at the client as a “whole” and tries to address the root cause of their illness. This is a science-backed and evidence based approach to health and wellness and addresses all systems in the body which may be affected by the imbalance or disease. Functional Medicine addresses imbalances using Nutrition, Genetics, Family History, Medications, Mental and Emotional State, Sleep, Lifestyle and Toxic Load. I then use simple sustainable changes through food which affect and revitalize all systems of the body.
Problems with energy can show up as a multitude of symptoms. If you are experiencing, any of these, it’s time to seek help.
- Mood Swings
- Brain Fog
- Weight Gain
- Digestive Issues
- Light or heavy periods
- Inability to sleep.
- Afternoon slump

Book a complimentary, 30-minute discovery call with me
I offer a complimentary, no-obligation 30-minute phone call to better understand your health goals and to gauge if I would be the right practitioner to help you. If I am unable to help, I will happily refer you on to another therapist or a GP that would better be suited to your needs.
Hi there, I’m Puja. A nutritionist and an expert in energy and hormone optimization.
If you have found me through your research, I am happy that you are here. I have a huge passion of providing health and vitality to my clients and I can say with conviction that living with less energy than your body is capable of, isn’t optimal for you.
I can show you that through nutrition, lifestyle changes and targeted supplementation, all this is possible. I will guide you, step by step, how powerful food can be in changing the way you think and feel.
The Consultation Process
Nutritional Therapy can be a vital tool in getting healthier and feeling better. However, I will be the first one to admit that food-based therapies take time, patience and sometimes a little experimentation. Book a no obligation call with me if you would like to learn more about my approach with personalized nutrition or if you are unsure of whether I’d be the right person to assist you.
Hormone, stool, and blood testing are a vital component of my practice. It can be an amazing tool to help address the root cause of your illness. It helps me tailor my protocols accordingly and helps the process of making change a lot more precise and motivating for the client. Seeing things on paper can make a world of difference in how one views their health. My own personal journey and practice wouldn’t be where it is today without the help of testing.
Puja has helped me to understand how food is an essential building block for a healthy lifestyle. With her careful, detailed assessment of my eating, sleeping and exercise habits, she designed menus that would focus on improving my sleep, focus and energy needs. Her knowledgeable background put me at ease, her gentle manner became an attitude I wanted to emulate. Now I calmly think of food as not only a joyous part of life, but also as an important fuel for body and mind. Thank you, Puja!
Puja has helped me personalize my nutrition by incorporating new foods to help me balance out my meals, which have reduced my sugar cravings. She has also optimized my nutrition to where I can understand the foods that are beneficial to my body and remove the foods that were causing inflammation. As a result, my digestion is better and my energy levels have increased. I have also lost weight in the this process and gained muscle mass. She has enabled me to increase my diversity in plant foods and anti-inflammatory foods which are beneficial to my body given my family history of Autoimmune disease. I am now on a good path of creating a healthy balance between my diet and exercise.
I came to see Puja for my Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which is a genetic disorder. I found Puja to be very kind and thoughtful and she was able to put me at ease from the very beginning. She was able to advise me on the right type of diet for my condition paving the way for recovery, considering my health issues. She took the time to explain her nutritional advice and the reasons behind the changes, making it easy to understand and implement rather than just giving me a plan to follow. I would definitely recommend Puja to anyone who was looking into dietary and nutritional advice.
I had put on 15kg during my pregnancy and despite trying everything, I couldn’t lose weight post pregnancy. Furthermore, my health started deteriorating even further with symptoms of itchy skin and bloatedness. When I started seeing Puja, she opened my whole world up to what gut healing is and now 6 months later, I have lost 11kg. It is a goal that I never thought I would ever achieve. Puja is extremely knowledgeable and diligent with her passion for Nutrition. Being a vegetarian myself and feeling lost with healthy foods, Puja has opened me up to trying a whole host of new foods and a different way of eating. She has guided and educated me into feeling like a whole different person. I am healthy and confident about my body because of her.
I will take her advice further and better the life of my entire family. Thankyou Puja!
