Meet Ilona

Hi, I’m Ilona Madden,
certified Nutritional Therapist and Health & Lifestyle Coach.

 

When I was just over 40, I was unhappy, unfit, and I was putting on weight which I couldn’t shift any more. Sound familiar? 

I felt often felt so tired,  I couldn’t even get out of bed and I was not in a good place mentally either. I blamed getting older and my under-active thyroid.  However, after seeing a Nutritional Therapist, I made small changes which had a huge effect on my energy levels and general well-being. This extra energy motivated me to start running again, which motivated me to look even deeper into what I was eating. And I had even more energy to train even more. I was on an upward spiral. 

The changes were so profound that I knew I had to share this knowledge.

 I trained to become a qualified Nutrition & Health Coach at the Irish Institute for Nutrition & Health then continued on to train as Nutritional Therapist (Crossfield).

 Now, I help busy women who want to get their energy back, their “crazy” hormones under control and feel like their “old” self again. I do this by getting to the root cause and finding the right nutrients they need right now, but most importantly with the right coaching tools so they can achieve their own health goals.

I passionately belief (and I am living proof it) that you can be fitter & stronger and have more energy than in your 20’s and 30’s by making some changes to your diet and lifestyle, even if you don’t like cooking complicated meals and don’t like going on a treadmill for hours.

Healthy eating does not mean boring diets or deprivation. Healthy eating means eating nutritious and satisfying foods that nourish & heal your body.

Our bodies are absolutely amazing and when we look after them well, and feed them only what they are designed to deal with, they will look after us and make us feel and look great again!

Let me help you along the way!
