Rajni Naim

Hello! I am a Certified Nutritional Practitioner and graduate of the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. What I
have learned in my studies and in my practice is that there is no single path to health. Everyone has their
own bio-individually, meaning we are all unique at a biological level. I work with a broad range of clients
with concerns around hormonal health, skin issues, weight loss, gastrointestinal complaints, mental

It can be difficult to sift through and distill the immense amount of information on the topic of nutrition
and health overall, so my goal is always to make it as simple as possible. I am passionate about helping
people take charge of their health and reach their optimal well-being through the food and lifestyle

sessions. We truly create the life we live, and I am so honored to help others in this endeavour.

In addition, I have experience helping clients with the following concerns:
