I'm all about the FOOD!
Hi, my name is Vinka; and welcome to my world of functional nutrition and diagnostic testing. I'm super excited you are reading my page... I will take any opportunity to share and talk about food!
You are unique, and I understand that. Your genetics, history, family, feelings and thoughts make you special. As a functional nutritionist and diagnostic specialist my role is to understand this. During our consultation I will get to know ‘you’, then I will tailor blood, lab and genetic tests to unlock your code allowing me to adjust specific nutrition, diet and lifestyle that encourage and support wellness.
"Think + Eat = Heal" is about helping you heal through understanding and gaining a better relationship with your food.
One of the most fundamental building blocks in gaining optimal health is understanding the reason why we do the things we do.
We all know when we are eating something that isn’t beneficial but that doesn’t stop us from eating it.
At VINKA helping you recognise and manage these triggers plays an important role in your treatment and transformation.
I believe that healthy eating should be fun and delicious. Raised by European parents, my life has always revolved around food. I love food, but also understand what it’s like to feed fussy children, prepare large dinner parties and constantly keep the menu fresh. Leading a busy life doesn’t always leave time for elaborate dinners. I get it, we are all busy. I tailor meal plans and meal suggestions for all my clients.
I look at what you need for your individual circumstances considering health, value, time and family. Every consult will involve a personalised meal plan that helps you gain optimal health and most importantly, tastes great.
At VINKA my focus is on uncovering and treating the underlying imbalances in your major body systems that give rise to your symptoms. Through thorough consultation sessions and functional testing, I have had the privilege of helping clients with an array of health issues.
Some of the areas I work with are digestive issues, autoimmune conditions, thyroid issues, skin problems, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
I am all about the food! I love cooking food, I love eating food, I love growing food and I love talking about food.
I have the best job in the world. I get to share my knowledge in all these areas to help people optimise their health. You can’t get more exciting than that, well in my world anyway!
As a registered Clinical Nutritionist, my journey of learning about food and its relationship with our body is continuous. The human body is extremely complex and it has me hooked on learning all about its awesomeness. At any spare moment, I can be caught researching and reading about new developments in my field. It’s limitless, and that’s what I enjoy about it.
Having completed my first degree in a Bachelor of Business and Psychology I have spent many years working in the corporate world as an HR Manager which helped me coach and counsel people. This has given me great skills to compliment my practice. Learning why we eat is just as important as learning what to eat.
If you want to see if I am the right fit for you I am happy to have a short chat to see if I can help you. I have three clinic days in Matamata and one clinic day in Hamilton. I can also take SKYPE consults to any location or day of the week.
