Cristina Corsi-Ronchi offers personalised Nutrition Consultancy for improving health and beauty. Her life-long fascination with the role of food as a medicine led her to complete her BSc degree in Nutritional Therapeutics at UWL where she completed her clinical practice.  She recently relocated to London after a few years spent living and practicing in Asia.

Cristina also expanded her knowledge into the modern field of Nutrigenomics attending a specialised course at Bastyr University, California and Genesnippers UK.

State-of-the-art DNA testing allows her to devise therapeutic strategies based on individual genetic factors related to general health, weight and fitness. By performing for example Skin DNA tests she takes anti-ageing to the next level directly targeting individual collagen production, elasticity and anti-oxidant status. Tailoring advice on the patient’s biochemical and genetic uniqueness allows faster and more effective results in improving health and managing weight issues.

At LCAS Cristina aims at widening people's understanding of how diet, lifestyle and environment interact with genetic traits impacting not only on general health but also on appearance.  She advocates an approach of “beauty from within”.

Patients benefit from science-based dietary advice and/or nutraceutical supplementation to enhance beauty and delay signs of aging. She can also assist patients with pre- and post-surgery Nutritional Care aimed at optimising the outcome of aesthetic procedures.

Empowering patients to take an active and knowledgeable role in promoting long-term health and achieving a healthy look is at the core of Cristina’s practice. Her advice is always in line with the patient’s motivation.
