Why nutritional therapy is the answer for you

Did you know that the foods you eat carry instructions to your body on how it should function?

Clinical research on nutrition shows that what and how we eat can promote our health and well-being, prevent disease and help people with chronic conditions improve their health outcomes.

Nutrition is not about fad diets. It is about a balanced relationship with food that best supports your individual health needs.

As a nutritional therapist, I can help you figure out how to best support your body and mind through diet, lifestyle and supplements. And do so without adding stress to your already busy life.

How nutritional therapy has changed my life

Hello, I’m Katia, a Nutritional Therapist, NLP coach, and the founder of Omni Vitality.

My health journey began after working in a high-pressured industry for over a decade. I lived under chronic stress. I was an emotional mess - cranky, irritable, struggling to control my mood and lashing out at people closest to me. My tummy was bloated. My periods were painful. And I felt tired even after ten hours of sleep.

I did not want to live like that. With no medical explanation for my feelings, I started looking for answers elsewhere. I turned to nutritional therapy, and, honestly, I now feel better in my forties than I did in my twenties.

I want you to know that it is not ok if your periods are irregular, heavy or painful. It is not ok to always feel fatigued and struggle to get out of bed in the morning. Not ok to live with debilitating anxiety and constant moodiness.

You should know that there is a different way to live. To be truly happy, full of energy, with a clear head and a beautiful body. I know you can feel great, and I will accompany you on this path!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is nutritional therapy?

Nutritional therapy is a process of balancing relationships with food that provides optimal support for your individual health needs.

The food we eat has a profound impact on our health. Clinical research into nutrition shows that what and how we eat can promote health and well-being, prevent illnesses, and help those with chronic diseases improve outcomes. The nutrients we consume are information used to make hormones, and neurotransmitters, create energy, support immunity and brain health, detoxification, optimise gut function and ultimately maintain balance.

As a nutritional therapist, I am trained to understand how nutrients, food, and lifestyle factors influence the body's function and may contribute to individual symptoms and health concerns. Using a wide range of tools, I assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and provide realistic, practical, achievable, and personalised guidance to enrich your nutritional status and achieve your health goals.

As a nutritional therapist, I am here to help you not only determine how to optimally support your body and mind through diet and lifestyle but do this in an enjoyable way that does not add extra strain on your already busy life.

What happens in a nutritional therapy consultation?

The initial session lasts 75 minutes. I spend time with you, listening to your history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can contribute to your symptoms and influence your long-term health. It allows me to get you to know your unique life circumstances and individual biochemistry and identify possible root causes of your health concerns.

In my practice, I utilise a functional medicine approach to health. It gives me to look at your body as an interconnected web-like structure of different systems and functions. Imbalances within these systems can manifest as symptoms or illnesses.

In addition, I am trained in NLP, motivational interviewing, and other psychological tools and techniques to assist you in changing habits, behaviours, and environments to achieve meaningful improvements in your health. I use coaching techniques in every session we have together.

I typically encourage clients to work through a program with me. We finish the session by agreeing on a practical health plan that works for you. Functional testing can be arranged at this stage (if needed) to take out the guesswork and achieve quick and effective results. Shortly after the initial session, you will receive a custom report with key health goals we agreed to work on, meal plans, recipes, food sources, and more. I will check in with you a few weeks later to discuss progress and provide support, and we will meet again a few weeks later to review progress and adjust the program as needed. 

How does a nutritional therapist differ from a dietician?

Unlike dieticians with a series of standard dietary plans for different conditions, nutritional therapists use an individual approach to each patient.

I consider not just the specific condition or symptoms but also other factors, including underlying nutritional deficiencies, individual biochemical responses to foods, genetic predispositions, environmental stressors, patient’s health goals and motivations, and personal preferences and constraints. Such personalised plans help create the most appropriate and effective wellness strategy for each patient and, compared to generalised diet advice, have been shown to result in a more significant reduction in intake of foods detrimental to one’s health and notably improved dietary intake among adults.

What health concerns can Katia help me with?

As a certified and registered Nutritional Therapist, Katia can help you with:

Menstrual problems:

  • irregular, heavy, or absent periods
  • breast engorgement, and tenderness
  • anxiety, grogginess, and irritability
  • such PMS symptoms as mood swings, food cravings, bloating, water retention, fatigue 

Hormonal imbalance:

  • PMS
  • PCOS 
  • endometriosis
  • fertility
  • insomnia
  • chronic-stress related conditions
  • excess weight
  • fatigue
  • poor sleep
  • bloating and digestive discomfort
  • resistant weight loss
  • skin conditions like acne


  • menstrual cramps
  • painful periods
  • pre-menstrual pain
  • endometriosis pain
  • PCOS pain

Many chronic conditions and day-to-day fluctuations in health and well-being can be linked to individual nutrition and lifestyle. It has been repeatedly shown that nutrition and lifestyle changes can support and improve the health of all the body's major systems, including digestive, hormonal, reproductive, muscular-skeletal, immune, urinary, nervous, respiratory, and skin.

How can Katia help me with hormone imbalance?

I know how to support you using my knowledge of nutrition and the human body and my personal experience of dealing with health issues linked to hormonal imbalances. There is no quick fix, and everyone experiences hormonal imbalance issues differently. Working with me takes you on a journey to learn about your unique triggers, how to manage your symptoms and what can be done to address the root cause of these symptoms. Together, we can identify foods that may benefit you, adapt recipes to your likes and dislikes, and explore lifestyle factors that support your health goals.

What does a “Free Review” call look like?

I offer all potential clients an opportunity to meet virtually before committing to work together. This gives us an opportunity to discuss your health concerns and objectives, determine that I am the right person to help, and discuss nutritional therapy program options that will fit your needs best. It is also an opportunity to get to know each other because the work process with a nutritionist is quite intimate, so you should trust me completely.

How long is a nutritional therapy consultation?

As a professional nutritional therapist, my initial consultation is always 1 hour and 15 minutes. This time gives us an opportunity to discuss your medical history, family history, and symptoms which prompted the visit. Follow-up consultation times vary from 15 to 45 minutes and depend on your needs and the program that suits your health goals

Can I do just a single session with Katia rather than a package?

Yes, you can do a single session with me. But, from my experience, working on a package together helps achieve your health goals faster and more effectively. I propose several cooperation packages, and we can also discuss the package most suitable to your health goals and needs. Once the initial package has been completed, maintenance sessions can be arranged as and when needed.

How often should I come for an appointment?

Everything depends upon the problem we work with, the level of support you need, and the testing that should be undertaken. Some clients benefit from weekly touch points, while others can work independently for a few weeks before coming in for a return visit. 

Talk to Katia to discuss the most suitable approach that works for your circumstances.

How long is a nutritional therapy programme?

The program length depends on your health goals.

It takes time to explore new food plans and build new habits. The average length of the initial program is three months, which is the time needed to make a meaningful change in your life and start seeing the results. As we work together to bring the body and mind back to optimal healthy functioning, we must remember that symptoms result from imbalances created over a long period. This is why I recommend working on a program rather than a one-off consultation to allow time to bring the bodily processes back into balance.

Does Katia provide in-between-session support?

Katia can be reached in between sessions by email and endeavours to respond to your questions within 24 hours. Short between sessions calls can also be embedded into the program to provide extra support and accountability.

I would like to see Katia virtually. What do I need to know?

I support my clients in every way I can: Zoom, Whats App, or Facetime; virtual consultations are now an integral part of the practice. Just get in touch, and we will schedule a time that works for both of us.

Do I have to go somewhere else to get my supplements?

For clients who work with Katia at IMI, supplements are dispensed on-premises. For clients outside of Hong Kong, Katia works with several online dispensaries, and your supplements will be ordered online and delivered home shortly after consultation.

What do I need to bring to my consultation with Katia?

If you have the results of any recent blood tests, functional tests, or other medical examination reports, please email them to Katia at ahead of your consultation or bring them with you. A Diary with dates of your recent menstrual cycles is also helpful to get to your consultation or send ahead of time.

How much will I need to invest in my work with Katia?

The cost depends on which of the programs suits your needs and the level of support you need me to provide: weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. 

Pay attention that tests and supplements are not included in the package price. These are recommended based on your symptoms, health history and well-being goals.

Functional testing is optional, although in some cases can take out the guesswork and help achieve faster results. I will provide you with all the information you require to decide if you want to proceed with these.

Can I cancel or rebook a consultation?

Sometimes situations happen that we cannot influence. If something takes place and you cannot come to the appointment, please let me know 24 hours before your appointment, and we will find a suitable alternative time to work together.

Do you give meal plans and recipes?

When we work together on a program (rather than a one-off consultation), I provide you with a personalised food plan after the first consultation with 3-4 options for each breakfast, lunch, and dinner so that you can start building your personal balanced meal plans. I can also provide specific food plans such as low FODMAP, IBS-AID, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and other diets. I have a range of signature recipes, and we can discuss other recipe ideas tailored to your likes/dislikes, constraints, and capabilities.

What happens if the meal plan contains foods I don’t like?

Nutritional therapy is a process we do together. I educate you and provide you with nutrition and lifestyle information. And then, we negotiate and agree on a way forward together, considering your food likes, dislikes, beliefs, and budget. You will always have a choice.

Do you work with other healthcare professionals?

I frequently work alongside medical and complementary professionals. As a practitioner, I always try to refer any client to other complementary or medical professionals if I deem they can help the case more efficiently.

What are the functional tests?

Functional tests are specialised private assessments we discuss with you at your consultation(s) which are considered relevant in assessing the identified areas of your health. Examples of functional tests include a DUTCH test for advanced hormonal analyses, stool tests to assess digestion, absorption, and balance of beneficial and opportunistic bacteria, urine tests for vitamin and mineral levels, immune function tests, etc. 

Testing can be beneficial in identifying the root cause(s) of your symptoms. This knowledge enables me to tailor and personalise dietary, lifestyle, and supplement advice, which can help you get results faster. The advanced and detailed tests involved vary and will be recommended based on your symptoms, health history, and health goals.

Where can I get tests done?

I will propose accredited laboratories I work with for your testing needs. 

Depending on the test, most can be done in the comfort of your own home. For example, DUTCH hormone test, urine tests for metabolic processes, and stool samples for gut tests. Samples are sent directly to the relevant laboratory, and all equipment and instructions will be provided. Other tests need to be carried out in person; these are often blood tests requiring phlebotomy services for blood draws. I will help arrange all the tests we deem necessary to reach your health goals successfully.

Are my health and personal information kept confidential?

The consultation environment aims to provide a safe and confidential space. 

All consultation paperwork, including notes taken, is treated as confidential and stored securely. The Nutritional Therapist reserves the right to break with confidentiality in the following circumstances: 

  • As part of ongoing training, to discuss clients with a professional supervisor (to ensure your privacy, you will only be referred to anonymously by a client code)
  • If provided with information that may indicate a threat to your own life or someone else's, the Nutritional Therapist reserves the right to report the information to relevant services.
Is the work with a Nutrition therapist covered by insurance?

Currently, nutritional therapy is rarely a part of insurance coverage. However, there are considerable variations amongst individual insurance policies, and some providers may cover natural treatments, including nutritional therapy. 

Please, check your insurance provider your policy for details regarding your particular insurance coverage.

Supplements are not covered by insurance. 

For testing done with patients at IMI, please talk to Katia about what may be covered by your insurance policy.

What languages are the consultations offered in?

Consultations can be offered in English, Russian and Ukrainian.
