Emma Sgourakis, Certified Nutritionist, is unique in how she practices, working closely with her clients (ranging from busy mums and corporate executives to professional athletes) in Sydney, Melbourne, across Australia and internationally via Skype. Her private programs are two to three months long, with thorough assessment, in-depth fortnightly sessions and ongoing support, individually tailored for long-term health shifts. She aims to not only guide but most importantly educate. Emma trained in Melbourne at ACNM and New York, has been in practice for over ten years in various clinics and health retreats around Australia, and works in association with forefront US-based research into the relationship between food, hormones, thyroid, ageing and cellular metabolism.
Unconventional in her approach, opposed to commercialised western “diet” principles and the industry-driven food pyramid, she is always researching further and digging deeper to uncover the truths and debunk common myths about human nutrition. She will have you questioning mainstream health “beliefs” that have been holding you back. Emma’s nutrition philosophy is based on the premise that we should eat the foods we are biologically designed to eat, based on our physiology and backed by unbiased scientific research, but always person-specific. She will move you away from processed, degenerative, inflammatory and inefficient foods, towards natural, nutrient-dense, functional, supremely digestible, pro-metabolic foods. Emma believes that we should not underestimate the consequences of our food choices and that we need to be more thoughtful in our purchasing and eating habits, better informed about our bodies, and armed with skills to make it all taste good.
Emma regularly writes for and contributes to health, beauty and lifestyle articles for Australian and British magazines and media publications.
Emma resides in Melbourne with her husband and daughter.
