BSc (Hons), DipION, mBANT, CNHC
Hello, I’m Shaz, founder of Sarchamy Nutrition.
I'm a Registered Nutritionist specialising in Women's health.
I'm registered with The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and qualified as a Nutritional Therapist from the world renown; Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION). Before that I studied Biomedical Science, and did my Honours in Neuroscience at The University of Edinburgh.
My practice revolves around evidence based science where I support, educate and empower my clients to fully understand and experience the role positive nutrition and lifestyle choices can have on their health and happiness.
I combine my qualified approach to nutrition with total dedication to my clients’ needs.
I passionately studied science throughout school earning my place at Edinburgh University where I studied Biomedical Science and did my Honours in Neuroscience. After graduating I worked in Medical Communications for 6 years, continuing to explore and develop my interest in science. Over the years my interest in scientific research relating to nutrition and health culminated in my decision to return to education and train as Nutritionist.
Nutrition professionals are often portrayed by Social Media as people who eat the ‘perfect’ diet and who constantly ‘glow’ with good health. As nice as that would be, it simply isn’t true. I certainly know what it feels like to gain weight, for stress to wreak havoc on my health and my hormones and to feel completely bewildered by the abundance of conflicting information out there!
Food is a big part of my life, I’ve always loved food and come from a large family and group of friends who love to eat, drink and socialise. Despite or maybe because of this my own relationship with food hasn’t always been straight forward! But, through knowledge comes power and I’ve learnt to understand the profound effects diet and lifestyle have on one’s physical and emotional wellbeing.
With the knowledge I gained during my extensive training I worked my own way back to good health balancing my hormones and learning alleviating many symptoms that were making me miserable. Now, as a nutritionist, I support, educate and empower women to fully understand and experience the role positive nutrition and lifestyle choices can have on their health and happiness. All the programs I develop with my clients are bespoke with their specific goals and concerns at the heart of our work together.
Food can be one the greatest pleasures we have in life and is there to be enjoyed! By enabling people to make informed choices and supporting them to develop good habits I can help ensure that food can be life enhancing rather than feared.
