The Key Role of Nutrition is an ONLINE COURSE composed of a series of thematic modules that are regularly updated in order to:

‚á® 2. Offer a balance between a whole-picture view and focus sessions on specific issues 

‚á® 3. Fully understand the mechanisms that actually link what we eat with our immune, nervous, endocrine systems and all other systems

‚á® 4. Understand how to change your diet to manage responses to stress, emotions, thinking skills – directly and indirectly 

‚á® 5. Take an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to understanding two-way mind-body mechanisms by identifying the key role played by what we eat each day

Clear information and practical examples to be used right away

The course presents the latest updates and consensus among the main experts and authoritative institutes. We only present data that has been collected and validated according to the most stringent parameters.

Our approach is ‘neutral’: it doesn’t support any particular diet or theory, but reveals the scientific mechanisms at the heart of the different issues. 

All this is presented in a pragmatic and practical manner in order to help make informed personal choices or to integrate these aspects in your professional life.

Lucy Saunders

“I’ve read all the most up to date publications on the issue: China Study, Mercola and many others, but here I found something more: an objective and impartial presentation that was totally up to date. The pragmatic and concise approach used helped me to apply this information to my professional and daily life immediately!”

Bianca Glover


“At last someone that ‘dares’ explain everything, regardless of trends and ideology. This way everything is clear and easy to link together with other issues. I, for example, have added these to my consultancy programmes. The connections to the other HUB modules are very useful and link theoretical focus sessions with practical techniques. Fantastic! Even more so, if you consider how cost effective it is!! Thank you so much, you’re really special!!”

Member of: SIPNEI (Italy) The Nutrition Society (UK); Parenting UK (UK)

Sara has a Degree in Nutrition Sciences and is a Nutrition and Health expert that focuses on the ways that food, nutrition and physical activity affect our health, emotional responses, mood and cognitive abilities. She is co-founder of the Association for Integrative Sciences and of the Real Way of Life research and training centres where she works as a consultant, researcher and trainer. 

She developed the Emotional-Metabolic Switch model to intervene on inflammatory conditions of the gut, brain and, at the same time, on energy metabolism and the efficiency of mind-body interaction.

Her work slots into the Change Switches theory starting from initial cell responses (metabolic energy, epigenetic marking, inflammatory cascade) and is applied right throughout, across various levels of complexity that influence initial adaptation responses (from hunger to a sense of void), to brain networks at the heart of emotions and self-image (both physical and relating to identity), to self-regulation and primary interpersonal relation models (tolerance towards waiting, nurture, sharing etc.).

Sara researches and evaluates the reciprocal influence between nutrition, cell responses, epigenetics, responses to pain, management of emotions and behaviour.

Sara coordinates nutrition and wellbeing projects both at individual clinical level and in their overall social implication aspects, presenting her findings each year to an international audience.

Author of many successful books and articles published in different languages, including:

Science, methods and tools to work on connections between emotions, posture, brain, metabolism, immunity and all the processes at the heart of health and development.
