Emilie Berthet Clairet
A registered medical doctor, Emilie Berthet Clairet, practised in the specialist field of bacteriology- human biology- in Paris. She moved to South Africa in 2005, where she trained and worked in Public Health. She worked on various projects, such as HIV prevention and access to a healthy diet for the underprivileged population. During this life-changing experience, she discovered how lifestyle can be directly linked to health and how prevention can make a real difference.
She moved to Hong Kong in 2008 and stopped practising for a few years to raise her 3 children. Through some health concerns for herself and her children, she experienced the importance of diet when going through health issues, and she extended her knowledge further into nutrition. She also discovered the benefits of complementary medicine and holistic health for herself and her children. As a result, she decided to pursue her medical practice using a more holistic approach, focusing on rebalancing lifestyle and diet to keep our body healthy instead of treating diseases when they occur. Today, she works as a registered holistic nutritionist. (National Association of Nutrition Professionals).
Emilie approaches nutrition by not limiting but understanding what you eat and associating physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions to help her patients acquire a healthy lifestyle that best matches their requirements. As a trained medical doctor, she can also provide nutritional support to patients during illnesses and medical treatment. Thanks to a specialisation in human microbiology, she often works more specifically on rebalancing the gut, our “second brain”. She is now focusing more and more on gut health, using her comprehensive knowledge and background to advise people on rebuilding and taking care of their intestinal flora.
We are preparing our future health now, through diet and habits, and “a healthy habit” is only really healthy if you keep it for good. Emilie understands this and uses her comprehensive medical and holistic background to assist each patient, with or without a medical condition, to their future health.
About Holistic Nutrition
Emilie Berthet Clairet firmly believes that one’s health is an expression of the complex interplay between various aspects of one's life and being. Her holistic method is a comprehensive approach to health, taking into account the human being as a whole, rather than considering each organ, system and specialty separately. The philosophy of holistic nutrition is that our health is an expression of the complex interaction between various aspects of our life and our being. Physical and chemical, mental and emotional, as well as spiritual and environmental factors all have an impact on our well-being. As a holistic nutritionist Emilie looks at an individual as a whole, looking at not just their food intake but also including their physical and emotional state of health, their environment, their lifestyle.
