MSc Personalised Nutrition
Corporate Wellness Consultant
Menka provides nutritional and lifestyle consultations to help individuals achieve vitality and sustain optimum balance of health. She has worked with many individuals with various chronic health issues and has supported them with nutritional therapy.
Menka gained a Master's Degree in Personalised Nutrition in the UK following many years of experience working as a Medical doctor in Singapore and London and is now building on this expertise with further training from the Institute of Functional Medicine (USA). Menka is very passionate about spreading the nutrition knowledge she’s gained over recent years to people who will benefit from it.
Menka practises on the principles of Functional Medicine as she realises that the prevalence of complex, chronic disease is escalating globally. Chronic diseases are diet and lifestyle-related and, so, require dietary and lifestyle solutions. Menka analyses the unique genetic makeup of each individual and the influence of food, toxins, and other environmental factors on the individual’s gene expression. Menka is trained in integrating nutrition assessment at the molecular and cellular levels with emerging research in nutrition and nutritional genomics. These advanced practice skills are essential for preventing and managing today’s chronic disorders.
Menka has lived in UK, India and now Singapore and understands different lifestyle and food habit choices in these countries.
It’s Menka’s mission to educate and inform as many lives as she can touch and help them achieve a state of optimum health by making the right choices in their lifestyle and environment.
Before the first consultation, a health and nutrition questionnaire will be sent to the client to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time detailed questions will be asked.
This enables practitioner to evaluate individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.
