. About Nadhrah .
My passion for holistic health was ignited after struggling through my share of health problems, namely digestive issues leading to bloating, constipation and hormonal imbalances. I was desperately looking for answers on how to heal.
I took the conventional route, attempting to get better with a variety of medication and drugs. I never really got better. Eventually, I decided to heal through nutrition. I got better for a period of time, and then the old ailments returned.
I got back to looking for answers. I wasn’t knowledgeable, looking all over the Internet for resources on finding solutions. I was having more chronic symptoms, and I needed to acknowledge that I had to make a change in both my diet and my lifestyle.
I felt helpless and depressed at one point, looking for help when it wasn’t there. Here in Kuala Lumpur, holistic approaches to healing are way to go until we have the right resources to heal. That is what is lacking here in Malaysia. We don’t have many experts to offer the right advice. It is a relatively new concept.
By chance, I started seeing a holistic health practitioner who helped me identify and treat the root cause of my health issues; using a “food as medicine” approach. I became so enthralled with everything I was learning that I decided to make a career turn and eventually finding my way to the Academy of Culinary Nutrition.
I realized that I wanted to get better and to genuinely help people. I wanted to start with my own family, then friends and eventually to the public. Culinary Nutrition offers me valuable knowledge and is an area that is full of untapped potential. One, which I hope to be able to spread its benefits and create more awareness back here.

Because of my own personal journey, my endless love for research and knowledge , I have total confidence in the advice I give to my clients.
