Hi to the readers! I am a Registered Dietitian from Argentina graduated in 2008 from National University of Cordoba. I finished my postgraduate studies in Malnutrition and Nutritional Support in 2011 at University of Buenos Aires, and later in Cancer and Nutrition in 2013 issued by the Argentinean Society of Clinical Nutrition.
Currently, I provide services at my private practice. I love to coach people to change their eating habits and develop healthier lifestyles. I assist companies abroad from all over the world in marketing and nutrition, help them through the process of creating slogans, summaries of their products, blog writing, promotions and everything related to sales optimization. I also administer two social media accounts (“Nutriediciones”) where I share relevant content and the latest news and tips of nutrition and wellness. I believe in the power of nutrients and bioactive principles to change the course of any disease and especially, regarding prevention.
Cancer is an affliction of my interest. I have devoted uncountable hours to study how nutrients, food supplements, superfoods and other principles empower healing mechanisms and enhance regular treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
