Marika is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist with six years of clinical experience working with a wide range of conditions. Her speciality is Fertility and Women’s Health, she is especially keen to help couples and singles to prepare their bodies for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. This might be either preparing for a natural pregnancy or preparation for IVF. Her approach in her practice is to optimise the clients body for pregnancy as well as unturn every stone to find out the root cause of any fertility problems.
She first became interested in health after spending 7 months in a French hospital recovering from a bad motorbike accident. After that she struggled to conceive and had to go through many rounds of IVF (ICSI). This prompted her to study nutrition and get her health back on track.
Marika graduated from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Manchester, where she now teaches and enjoys helping students to become effective practitioners. Marika is accredited by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) a government-sponsored registration body for complementary healthcare practitioners. She is a registered member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT). She is also a Functional Medicine AFMCP graduate. Marika is originally from Finland and loves to spend her time with her 2 toddlers, walking up the Munros in Scotland (52 done!) and her massive Irish Wolfhound called Karhu.
