Nutritional coach / Ernährungcoach

I am a trained nutritional and psychological coach specialized in food intolerances, allergies and paleo and have written a book about lactose intolerance (only available in German). Besides the training I am effected by food intolerances myself(lactose and histamine intolerance, celiac disease) as well as various food allergies ever since I was five years old.

Ich bin eine zertifizierte Ernährungsberaterin und psychologische Beraterin und habe mich als Ernährungscoach auf Allergien, Lebensmittelintoleranzen und Paleo spezialisiert. Über den einfachen Einstieg ins Leben mit Laktoseintoleranz habe ich ein Buch geschrieben.
Neben dem theoretischen Wissen kenne ich Lebensmittel-Intoleranzen selber nur zu gut: ich bin laktose- und histaminintolerant, Zöliakie und diverse Lebensmittelallergien seit dem ich 5 Jahre alt bin.
