Welcome

Welcome to Healthy with Hanifa.  I'm a holistic health coach and registered holistic nutritionist with a diploma in holistic nutrition, plenty of experience guiding people with health and medical challenges, and have numerous fitness certifications.  Having struggled with dysbiosis, leaky gut, parasites, and extensive food allergies, which led to severe abdominal distention, I was shamed by relatives and former clients.   I have learned a lot firsthand. My focus, as a result, has become women's health and nutrition with an alternative angle.  Here you will find a 360-degree perspective: tips, articles on sleep, exercise, nutrition, muscle recovery, stress management, and exclusive guest expert advice.  I am the author of Healthy with Hanifa: A Woman's Guide to Holistic Health & Fitness, which is now available on Amazon US, UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada, and has also been picked up by an online seller in Norway.   If you live in Ottawa, you can buy my book at Singing Pebble Books.  For regular tips follow Healthy with Hanifa on Twitter and Facebook.  I also now have FREE handout & Resources Facebook group where you can get recipes, tracking forms, and tip sheets in pdf format.
