The Women She Helps

Maha loves working with health-conscious professional women over forty who are ready to take full charge of their health and make self-care a priority.

Most of the women she works with are:

  • Busy professional women who struggle to find balance between their many life responsibilities.
  • Feeling exhausted, lonely and stuck. They have tried everything but nothing is working the way they want.
  • Tired of doing it all by themselves. And have come to the awareness that they need a solid health plan, guidance and accountability to help them move forward towards their health goals.
  • Unhappy with their weight and current health situation.
  • Worried that if they continue in this path, they might end up having the same ailments like their parents.
  • Ready to do whatever it takes to reclaim their health, confidence and peace of mind.
  • Dealing with high stress levels and might resort to using food to cope with their daily stress.
  • Looking for a natural and safe solution for their health concerns.

They might have already sought the help of other holistic health practitioners and tried other alternative therapies. Probably noticing some improvements, but they feel that the nutrition piece is still missing for them.

They have also probably looked for information in books or on the internet. And they usually end up feeling confused and overwhelmed by the contradictory information they get. So they are not sure what to do and are ready to seek professional help.

What To Expect

Maha weaves together a range of holistic tools bringing an integrated approach to health that nourishes the body, mind & soul. Her nurturing approach honors the feminine nature of women and takes into consideration their specific needs.

Her holistic toolbox includes:

Whole foods nutrition, medicinal herbs, natural supplements, holistic lifestyle practices, transformational coaching, mind-body techniques, energy medicine exercises, mindfulness, self-compassion and self-discovery tools such as the enneagram.

  • Become mindful about what you put in your body and how foods affect you.

Maha’s Transformational Journey

Maha started her career in the medical field and although she excelled in it, she didn’t feel really fulfilled.

Coming from a health-conscious and nature loving family, she always believed in the healing power of nature so switching to a holistic health career came out of a true passion. This switch also coincided with a time in her life when she was looking for natural solutions to some chronic health challenges.

She grew up pretty healthy but was guilty of neglecting her body’s needs and sometimes pushing it too far when under stress. Later in life, this neglect combined with an unhealthy change in her lifestyle took her health into a downward spiral. At the time she felt tired, foggy, bloated and unhappy because of her allergies, digestive, skin and hormonal issues. Unfortunately, conventional medicine offered only temporary fixes which came with side effects.

Embracing a holistic nutrition and natural lifestyle approach allowed her to naturally turn around her chronic health issues.

This holistic approach helped her regain her health after many years of struggle. It also helped her to cultivate a healthier relationship with food and become more aware of her body’s nutritional needs.

Although she was happy with her physical health transformation she felt that something was missing

Her life was good on the outside but she had an inner feeling of emptiness and loneliness even when surrounded by people. Something needed to shift in her life and she was determined to find out what it was.

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

She decided to go on a long journey of exploration with the hope of finding the missing piece. 

Besides going deeper in nutrition, she went on to explore other natural healing modalities. It was an enjoyable and rewarding path but after doing a ton of online research, reading tens of books and taking different courses, she eventually felt overwhelmed. It was getting too much and she felt that she needed a break to re-evaluate her life. Exhausted and unmotivated to do more, she felt stuck and not sure where to go for help, so she decided to just be and pray for guidance.

Shortly after, she was divinely guided to go on an inner journey of self-discovery. During this journey she spent lots of time in solitude communing with nature and digging deep into her heart for answers. But she also realized early on that she can not do it all on her own, so she went on a search for wise teachers to support her along the way and was definitely blessed with a few to whom she will be forever grateful.

This inner journey was a turning point in her life that made her realize that transforming her physical body was not enough

It wasn’t until she did the inner work that she found the missing piece: “her authentic self”. It was when she was able to drop from her head into her body and tap into her intuition that she reconnected to her true self. Her world began to change when she was able to release unconscious old patterns and self-limiting beliefs born of a lineage of women abandoning themselves for others. At this time she felt that a new wiser, happier and more aligned version of herself was birthed into life. She experienced greater confidence and inner peace that were rooted in true self-acceptance and self-love.

Today she feels called to share her transformational journey with others

She is excited about weaving together a range of holistic tools to bring in a whole health transformative experience for women on the path of healing and self-development.

Health is wholeness and balance, an inner resilience that allows you to meet the demands of living without being overwhelmed.

Clients are amazed at the results they get and say remarkable things about the impact Maha’s work had on their health and their lives.

Maha is intuitive and brilliant at what she does. She made what seemed to be an impossibly difficult turn around easy, organic, effortless and appealing. I cannot recommend Maha enough, for her warmth, generosity, and the amazing results that I know she will make in your life and in your health."

Devorah F, Toronto

Maha helped me look at my self-worth and relationship with money. She motivated me to take the necessary steps so that I was ready to start my business venture as early as 2 months within our coaching. And I am grateful beyond words.

Maha is a very intuitive person and that along with her long business experience was so helpful in our coaching interaction. I would whole-heartedly recommend her as I believe that she has a lot of wisdom and experience to offer others through her coaching.

Misha M.

I was struck at how early on I felt better and I feel confident now that I am properly nourishing my body. I would highly recommend Maha to anyone seeking a highly qualified professional who understands the needs of complex patients and truly believes in the innate healing power of food.

Kristen K.

I lost more than toxins, imbalances, and inches of puffiness throughout my entire body. I also lost old behavioral patterns around food selection, food preparation and how I engaged with food throughout my day. My eating habits are consistent and gentle to my body. My brain is sharper. I no longer have frequent heartburn, and I no longer dread preparing meals, because they are now an act of love.
Her nurturing abilities along with her practical and attentive direction has transformed my food attitude from overwhelmed to cool-headed!

Pamela L.

I tried all the diets on the market: keto, Weight Watchers, fasting, counting calories, but I would always lose weight fast at first, then it would stop and I give up and gain even more pounds. When I met Maha, I was doubtful and losing weight felt like the hardest thing to do. Her customized plan took into consideration my IBS sensitivities. I was never hungry. My energy was high, my sleep got much better, my skin was glowing and my digestion improved. I lost 15 pounds in two and a half months, my size went down from size 8 to size 4 and I finally got rid of the belly fat and love handles!
The good thing was that I didn’t need to exercise much during the plan. And the food recipes were tasty, unlike all the previous diets when I had to eat boiled chicken and lettuce!
Thank you Maha! I am very grateful for your help!

Kathy M., Toronto

I’ve never worked with someone better than Maha! She was so helpful the first time I worked with her a few years ago, helped heal my digestion overall. I never felt better and lost so much weight from inflammation. I came back about 3 years after as I started to feel a bit of inflammation again and she got me back on track in no time and I use her tips and tricks now anytime I need to! Will always come back and always recommend her. She’s beyond supportive and genuine!
