Rosie Whiteway, UK trained Nutritional Therapist at Ahara Nutrition
With over 10 years in practice as a Nutritionist, Rosie decided to make Mallorca her home in early 2018 and is slowly adjusting to the slower pace of life after many years living in London. She loves that Mallorca seems to have everything, from the hustle bustle of Palma with its fantastic wellbeing scene, to quiet beaches and beautiful nature.
Rosie trained in Nutrition after struggling with her own health issues. She found help from a Nutritionist and was inspired to change her career and help others. Following the completion of her 3-year course in Nutritional Therapy in 2007 she returned to The College of Naturopathic Medicine and ran the London college for 4 years, overseeing students and lecturers. However, despite loving the role, she really missed seeing patients and so after the birth of her first baby she focused her attention on building her own business, Ahara Nutrition.
So why would you see a Nutritionist? Here’s what Rosie has to say:
“People see me for a variety of reasons but usually because they are lost in a sea of information and don’t know what to do. There is so much conflicting information out there on every social media stream and the internet that I find people become overwhelmed. Often, they want to lose weight, or they have digestive issues, or they want more energy or all of the above and more!
I work a lot with women and focus on balancing hormones and preconception/post natal advice. In recent years plant based/vegan diets have gone through the roof and clients see me because they are keen to incorporate this into their lives and want advice on how best to do it. In addition, I see a lot of clients with exhaustion and burnout which is surprisingly common and not often diagnosed in the mainstream medical world. I think it’s partly the way we live our lives in a nonstop, 24/7 that is really fuelling this, and London is really a hotspot for burnout.”
What makes Ahara Nutrition different?
Rosie likes to provide simple, straight forward advice that you can follow which works for you and your life. She looks at the whole picture as its never just about food and what you are eating. Stress, emotional wellbeing, exercise and social networks form part of the bigger picture. She often refers to an old saying ” a journey of a thousand miles being with 1 step” by Lao Tzu.
“It’s easy to want to fix everything in one go which can feel overwhelming and then we can give up and do nothing. Instead, think that you don’t need to change everything overnight, just start small, start with making 1 change and begin the journey.” – Rosie
