Something About Me
When talking to people, one of the questions I am being asked often is:
And what do You do?
Hello, I am Alenka an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I work with my clients to help them feel their best through food, healing and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet, I ensure we work together to tailor make a wellness program to meet your individual needs and wishes.
What makes me different, stand out, and what I believe gets the results, is that I am not only a health coach I have also studied homeopathy and healing too, so I can be fully equipped for anything you may need.
I have been honoured to be a part of helping my clients with an array of ailments, these include; manage or heal depression and anxiety, feel more energised, balance cravings, manage stress, be more confident, support their autoimmune condition, heal their gut, and love themselves, to name but a few.
One of my great passions and expertise is to also work with new mums and their babies, helping them balance their nutrition before and during pregnancy and after birth, as well as giving invaluable advice on how to manage naturally common ailments their baby may experience. For example, what to do when baby has colic, cradle cap, baby eczema, and guiding them through the weaning process, with nutrition, and healthy made easy meal suggestions for the whole family.
I coach people, I ask questions, sometimes a lot of questions. I listen attentively to my clients to find his/her own unique answer to my questions. Our bodies are amazing, they constantly guide us through symptoms and emotions, to show what may be stuck within, and what energy wants to burst out.

People ask me how did I become and what made me become a Health Coach? How long have I been doing what I do?
Since early childhood, I have been interested in healing the mind, body and soul using methods that nature has provided us with. I grew up in Slovakia where we have herbal teas for every ailment. As a child playing outside, there was always something I could find in nature to stop a bleeding cut, ease a bruise or soothe a stomach ache. As children, being outdoors, we would naturally turn to a plant if someone was hurt. I see that life is very different for children now.
Growing up I was very curious about healing and what was going on around me. When people fell ill I was fascinated with what was going on in their lives, and how they responded to an illness. This made me even more curious about the connection between our emotions, food and health. In my mid 20’s I came across a book called ‘Natures Healing’ which opened a door to a whole new journey for me. I started to attract more and more people in my life who were already on this exciting journey of helping others to understand the amazing connection between our minds, emotions and physical symptoms and spirituality.
I studied homeopathy, Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, hair tissue mineral analysis and homeobotanical therapy. I’ve been blessed to be taught by people like Joshua Rosenthal, Dr Mark Hyman, Dr Andrew Weil, Dr Mehmet Oz, Deepak Chopra, David Wolf, Dr Bernie Siegel, Dr Axe, Kris Carr, Gabby Bernstein to name a few.
My studies and experience working with children gave me an array of tools to support my clients on their journey to be healthier and lead happier lives. I work with clients to help them feel their best through food, healing and lifestyle changes. I have tailor made a wellness program to meet each of my clients individual needs and wishes.
I work on the basis that we are all biochemically unique, physically and holistically. My work involves looking at my client’s nutrition, their mental blocks and belief systems that may be impacting their well being, hence creating dis-ease. I provide them tools to empower themselves. Together we work on balancing their primary foods like their career, relationships, movement and spirituality and the secondary foods, the food they eat on a daily basis.
I give my clients, accountability and support through their transformational journey to make this process as easy as possible, and empower them to stay committed to themselves for the rest of their lives.
I coach, I listen, sometimes ask many questions, to help my clients listen to their own body, and to nurture this ability that empowers them to heal. Together we work on how to love ourselves, our bodies and our life.
Why am I telling You this story?
These experiences and much, much more like it, inspired me to learn how I can help people with overcoming inner blocks, fears, suppressed emotions, addictions, weight, stress and other health issues. I work with people to help them balance their lives through aligning their Primary foods – relationships, career, physical activity, spirituality and Secondary Food – Nutrition, the actual food they feed their bodies with. Together we look at the different aspects of their own lives, the symptoms their body is giving them to learn more about health, we look at what they eat and how the body reacts to the food and how healthy is their gut. We look as well into how to prepare easily more nutritious meals based on individual needs – NO MORE DIETING or CURRENT TRENDS!
I help parents raise healthier, happier children in a more natural, holistic way. I know parents are exhausted. Most of them are doing the best they know how to do, the best they can. But unfortunately, many are overcompensating and accidentally ‘hurting’ their kids with too many sugary foods, highly processed foods or presents. I’ve come to learn that this often is rooted in their own upbringing, their own childhoods. I started coaching parents how they can parent in their own way (not just the way they were raised), helping them recognize their own truth of parenting, learn that it’s okay not to be perfect parents (as the society telling us who to be and keeps setting, sometimes unrealistic standards of it), that it’s alright to say no to their kids and learn how to love themselves, even if they feel they can’t.
I have made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to help clients to Master their Body Talks and help them break their addictions, procrastination, get unstuck. I help people to access confidence, self-love, healing, abundance, health, access their full potential and break free to live the life they always dreamed of.
Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups. Now I am working toward my dream of travelling the world, starting my own family and living my best dream life ever.
I have created the Ignite Your Potential™ a series of 10 important emotional and nutritional steps every person needs to apply to live healthier and happier life where they can get control of their own health, accept themselves the way they are, who they are, love themselves and allow others to love them – tune into self-love. Life, where there is no more dieting, tiredness, addictions to numb their feelings or thoughts but sleep is refreshing and they can generally feel better. For those who are parents, this program will help raise healthy and happy children and families.
