Maria Berglund Rantén
I have a degree in Nutritional therapy (BSc Hons) 2006 from Westminster University London. I have specialised in managing autoimmune disease & chronic symptoms.
I practice Functional Medicine, funktionsmedicin, that is taught by the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) in the US. I am the first and only IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in Sweden. I do not associate myself with any functional medicine training currently taking place in Sweden.
In the last four years I’ve completed most courses by Dr Datis Kharrazian and all of the courses at the Kharrazian Institute. He focuses extra on mental, brain and neurologic wellness caused by inflammatory processes and neuroinflammation.
I am also a licensed Metabolic Balance coach but do not currently practice this in Sweden www.metabolic-balance.co.uk
A Functional Medicine practitioner work as a detective trying to find out the root cause of chronic symptoms and imbalances. Part of my job is educating clients – I can suggest where and how to shop for healthy food, how to read labels, healthy cooking techniques, the importance of the environment, allergens, sensitivities, intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, stress, pathogenic microbes and infections, toxins and explain how dietary and lifestyle changes can lead to better health and vitality. I want you to feel empowered to make the right choices that lead to a pain free healthy life.
