Sonia Salim

Sonia is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, with a diploma from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. After graduating in 2012, she earned certificates separately for gut health and hormone health and the Psychology of food respectively from the same institution. She believes in the use of foods as medicine to treat various disorders and has been practicing full-time since 2017.

'You are what you eat' is a metaphor that most of us have heard in our lifetime. When it comes to fertility, the foods we consume today have a direct and indirect impact on our body. Nutrients play a key role in assessing and improving fertility of both females and male. To prepare our bodies for pregnancy and enhance fertility, maintaining a healthy weight and choosing the right foods that will create an optimal environment for conception and healthy egg production is key. If you follow a healthy diet at least 90 days before conception it will remove potential toxins from your body and increase your fertility. This is where Sonia’s expertise will make a difference and give Genova IVF patients the best chance for pregnancy.
