Hi! Welcome to my page. I am Yuliya and I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist based in Chicago, IL. My credentials allow me to practice and provide medical nutrition therapy and give recommendations to the public beyond general knowledge. I use evidence-based research and scientific methods to achieve optimal clinical outcomes in patient care. I am here to help you to attain your health goals and provide you with up to date nutrition advice. I believe that proper nutrition and food first approach can help in prevention and treatment of various diseases.
I received Certificate in Nutrition Science and completed my Internship Program at Dominican University in River Forest, IL. My experience varies from working in the hospital setting and outpatient clinic providing medical nutrition therapy and nutrition education to people with various disease states including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, GI disorders and others to working with different populations, such as children and older adults, in the Chicagoland area promoting health and wellness. Aside from virtual counseling I work in the dialysis clinic helping patients with kidney disease.
When I am not counseling, I like to experiment with food at home and create healthy recipes. I mix and match various foods and ingredients to make healthy and tasty meals. In my spare time I transform unhealthy products or meals into healthy ones by substituting the ingredients. This is what I’d like to teach you! The possibilities are endless! My goal is not to tell you to stop eating something that you like but provide you with better and healthier version.
Another hobby of mine is travelling around the world and gaining knowledge about different cultures and their food habits. I love to learn about healing properties of various foods, plants, herbs and roots that have been used in a particular culture for ages. Applying some of the techniques that have been used for centuries by our ancestors, such as fermentation, can help to improve the health of my patients.
I hope my knowledge and always continued education helps people to improve their health and enjoy life.
