Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.Hippocrates
Maha specializes in functional nutrition and embraces a holistic mind, body, spirit approach that gets to the root cause of the problem not only suppresses symptoms. This is a very effective and safe approach that helps her clients get results in a short period of time and maintain them for life.
Her unique holistic approach is based on a natural whole foods diet that nourishes your body with the essential nutrients it needs as well as provides therapeutic phyto-chemicals from a variety of super foods and medicinal herbs.
She will also probably recommend specific natural food supplements as needed to correct nutritional deficiencies, support detoxification and possibly mitigate the side effects of any pharmaceutical drugs you might be taking.
Her nutrition plans are customized for your specific health needs and lifestyle because she believes in biochemical individuality and that there is no single ideal diet that fits all.
Her unique wellness formula also includes healthy lifestyle tips, energy-balancing exercises and mind-body practices that compliment your nutrition plan and help you achieve total physical, mental and emotional well-being.
To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.Buddha
Driven by a deep natural passion to help others and supported by her loving parents who were both in the medical field, Maha chose a career in medicine and definitely excelled in it.
However, after many years of medical practice, she didn’t feel really fulfilled with her work and came to realize that conventional medicine offered only symptomatic treatment for most chronic health problems and it might not be the best way to real health and wellness.
Maha had a strong belief in natural healing since her early childhood which was inspired by her late grandmother’s amazing natural recipes and her health-conscious family. Later in her path, her personal health challenges have led her to dig deeper into the field of natural healing and nutrition.
At one time in her life she remembers lying on the caoch in her living room watching TV and feeling tired, low in energy, foggy, bloated and depressed because of her allergies, digestive issues and migraines. Her eating habits were poor, her sleep was little and she was dependent on coffee to wake her up in the morning.
Unfortunately, conventional medicine offered only temporary fixes which didn’t help much and came with side effects.
Each of us does create an impact by how we act, and in the sum of our actions will be written the story of our time.John Robbins
It was a turning point in her life when she decided to follow her passion and go back to school to pursue studies in holistic nutrition. Shortly after graduating with honors and as Valedictorian of her class, from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Toronto, she started her own holistic nutrition practice ”Healthy U Turn”.
Looking back, and despite of any sufferings, she now feels so grateful for her personal health struggle and believes it was a blessing in disguise, because it opened the door for her to a new world of natural healing which was meant to totally change her attitude towards health and her whole life for good.
Using a holistic nutrition approach, she was able to have a healthier relationship with food, embrace a natural diet and lifestyle, successfully turn around all her chronic health issues and regain her health and zest for life.
Today, her combined medical and holistic nutrition expertise are tied up with her personal health experience to provide her clients with a very unique formula for long-lasting health and wellness.
We cannot solve problems using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.Albert Einstein

The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease.Thomas Edison
Maha believes that the future is for functional medicine given the growing scientific recognition of the major role of nutrition and other lifestyle factors implicated in disease and healing,
