Hi! I'm Chiara, a Nutritionist, specialized in women's health. I help women in their 40's and 50's who are struggling with weight and hormonal imbalances to restore their health and feel as they've never been before, even when they were 30.
When I was 12, my mother was diagnosed with an incurable disease. She died ten years later. Since then, I promised myself that I would do everything in my power to take care of my health and educate myself. Now I have been blessed with the opportunity to share my experiences and the knowledge I have gathered on my own platform.
I have been living in London for many years, but when I first moved here, I had a lot of adapting to do, the new environment, food, weather, habits, culture, etc. As a result, I gained 8 kilos even though for most of my life I was relatively slim.
Working in the fashion industry in a corporate environment didn’t help either. I was always stressed, constantly exhausted, trouble sleeping, with mood swings and sugar craving especially close to my period, migraine and digestive problems that were serious enough I had to go to the hospital because of my bloating and abdominal pain. During one of my trips back home, out of curiosity, I went to see a nutritionist. I got my hormones checked and found out I had several imbalances. With just a few dietary and lifestyle adjustments and targeted supplements, I started to feel better, my weight gradually went back to normal and, the quality of my life massively improved. My interest for the subject increased more and more. I started reading books, watching videos, attending seminars and researching everything regarding nutrition, wellbeing and in particular how to manage weight through balancing hormones in order to become an expert in the field. Friends and family, noticing the positive changes in me, started asking me for advice on nutrition and how to generally feel better, look youthful and be fit.
One day I made the life-changing decision of quitting my job in fashion and, pursuing a career as a Nutritional Therapist with the aim to help women achieve their wellbeing and health goals. Today I work with clients all over the world and offer consultations in both English and Italian, either in person or remotely.

Chiara believes in a personalized and tailored program considering that everyone is unique and respond to treatments in a different way. She believes that good diet topped up with lifestyle adjustments and supplements, where necessary, works in harmony with the body, and very often achieves the same effect as drugs, but without the potentially negative side effects. Sometimes the improvements allow the clients to reduce the dosage of their drugs (in consultation with their doctor, of course) or even come off completely.
Very positive experience with my consultation with Chiara Saccardo, professional and competent in her field. She understood my needs and she helped me to balance my diet to get the best results. She politely addressed my weaknesses in a positive way. Very satisfied.
