Kyrene Gail C. Tiu, RND
A Clinical Nutritionist-Dietitian whose primary focus is on weight management, culinary nutrition, sports nutrition, and mind-body healing. She graduated from the University of San Carlos, Cebu City. She had her medical continuing education in Lifestyle Medicine for Stress Management from the Harvard Medical School; and Diabetes Mellitus Management from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The growing epidemic of obesity and its complications, ignites her passion in helping people to embrace positive eating and stress management in order to bring wellness back into their lives. She also extends her interest in helping athletes win their goals through the provision of the right sports diet that can further augment their physical training.
Back in 2013, she used to be a nutrition coach at the Nestle Wellness FitFil Bootcamp and by 2014, worked as a nutrition consultant under iCARE, an organization that seeks to improve work quality by providing wellness services, especially to the call center sector. She then ventured into having her clinical internship and her subsequent work at the Cancercare – Cancer Survivorship Center, providing healthy cooking sessions that helped cancer patients and survivors see that healthy eating can also be exciting and delicious. She then continued her passion in nutrition at the DietWise Nutrition Consultancy by 2015 up until the present.
It is the center's goal to empower its patients and clients to take control over their health as well as to aid in the reversal and prevention of disease through the provision of a holistic health program. We believe that true and complete healing encompasses not only the healing of the body, but of the spirit and of the mind as well. Hence, the need for a holistic health approach.
Healthy individuals, forming healthy families; and together, building healthy communities.
