Registered Dietician, Holistic Nutritionist
Here to support your life-changing journey and balance your hormones for healthier living through holistic nutrition, herbs, and lifestyle
Hello there! I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist from Rome. I’m fueled by whole, yummy foods and the curiosity and passion about everything holistic: from nutrition to herbalism to lifestyle.
I love traveling the world, swimming in the Ocean, walking in Nature and a good old book.
I’ve always been passionate about nutrition, and decided to graduate in Food Science and Human Nutrition and then took the Master’s with honors in Clinical Nutrition. I'm an out-the-box thinker who brings enthusiasm, dedication and positivity to the Holistic Nutrition discourse.
By working in the US and Italy and with clients from all over the world, I am ready to transmit all the experience accumulated over the years with a passion and particular attention to Holistic Nutrition, focused on the needs and imbalances of the individual, balanced in components and sought after in quality and seasonality of food. My work especially focuses on hormonal imbalances, from PCOS to estrogen dominance to menstrual pain, because we deserve to feel free and happy in our body, without having to deal with fatigue, cravings, acne, weight gain, water retention, infertility, thinning hair, low libido, mood swings, & co.
I am a Registered Dietitian with a medical background in University and 10 years of school and clinical practice.
I worked at the prestigious Washington University, ranked among the top 100 universities in the world, and presented my work at international conferences such as the American Diabetes Association and the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. To complete my preparation on the Holistic approach and to fulfill my curiosity, I also got a master’s in Phytotherapy and Plant Medicine. This means that you can expect much more than a regular nutritional perspective ;)

"After years of medical treatments for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) that didn't work, I found Dr. Manuela: With clear and detailed explanations about how to balance hormones with diet and lifestyle, my life has changed for the better. She got to the root causes, tailored a protocol for me, and after 3 months I keep getting better and better. Dr. Manuela is truly a qualified practitioner, and puts all her passion in what she does. Highly recommended!"
"Working with Manuela has been one of the best things I've ever done for myself. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about nutrition, her approach focuses on the full body and mind. She genuinely cares and celebrates progress as if it were her own. I can't recommend her services enough. No matter where you are with your nutrition and health, she can help you to be the best you can be. I feel great and look great as well! I mean every word! Thank you so much for all that you do!"
