Sonya Schirmacher is a Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), wellness coach, health blogger, and former clinical nutritionist at the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Center. Sonya has been a healthy food advocate for most of her life having grown up in the industry through her family’s health food business. She came to this profession after experiencing many health issues herself including weight gain, constant bloating, leaky gut, and sugar cravings. She found a nutritionist that could help her and she knew that she had to make this her new career.
After graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Sonya worked at the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Center where she provided nutritional guidance to those with cancer and also for people wanting to prevent cancer. Through this work she discovered a desire to help women struggling with gut and hormonal issues and she has now made that her focus.
Sonya’s passion is to help women feel and look their best selves by uncovering underlying health issues and then creating customized eating and lifestyle plans so that you can feel sane, in control, energetic, happy and healthy again. She uses a high tech diagnostic tool which detects health issues at a cellular level to uncover underlying deficiencies and imbalances and then creates a customized program that not only addresses the body but the mind and spirit as well.
Sonya loves educating the public about healthy eating and lifestyle changes. She has conducted cooking workshops as well as seminars on topics like: fixing your digestive system, leaky gut and its connection to weight issues, how to stop sugar cravings for good and why reading food labels is important for good health.
If you suffer from any of these issues: inability to lose weight, hormonal belly, PMS or menopausal symptoms, sugar cravings, bloating, food intolerances, lack of energy, inability to fall or stay asleep or thyroid imbalances, then Sonya is the nutritionist for you!
Sonya looks forward to helping you live a healthy and inspired life!
