About me

Hi and welcome to my web-site!
I am Lera. I am a dietitian, an orthomolecular therapist and a freelance author.

I was born in Minsk, Belarus, and have moved to the city of Amsterdam in 2007. I founded Terra & Luna Nutrition Counselling in 2013. I like to call myself an anti-age expert. I help people to stay young, by which I mean maintaining for as long possible the optimal health, sharpness of mind and vigorous spirit.

I share my knowledge by providing individual consultations and group lectures, by giving cooking classes and writing.

I freelance as an academic literature researcher. The major fields of my research are nutraceuticals and their use in clinical conditions and everyday life. Nutraceuticals are (parts of) foods that provide health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of diseases. By conducting research in parallel with my practice, I am staying up-to-date on the latest developments in the world of nutrition. Because I find that high quality scientific information should be public to everyone who cares about their health, I periodically publish practical blog posts based on the latest scientific insights.

I love cooking, eating, sharing. I strongly believe that in order to have a strong, vital, fit body one absolutely does not need to starve. The opposite is true. Want to know the secret? Come visit one of my cooking workshops or contact me for an appointment.
