Episode 206: Nutritionist Alessandro Ferretti discusses data he has collected that may inform us as to the inflammatory response to diet and lifestyle, using markers such as blood glucose, heart rate variability and Alessandro’s metric of “HRV/BG Index”.
Alessandro graduated from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition in 2001 and formed Equilibria Health Ltd in 2004. With a growing team of Nutritionists and a Medical Doctor, Equilibria Health is now recognized as one of the UK’s leading providers of nutrition education. Alessandro personally delivers postgraduate seminars & master classes for selected, high quality supplement manufacturers and retail chains. In addition, Equilibria Health Ltd have also instigated an ambitious programme of clinical workshops which has been consistently well received.
Alessandro practices from the Centre for Health and Human Performance (CHHP) at 76 Harley Street, London, and at Tudor Medical Group in Stratford Upon Avon. Over recent years, he has received two nominations for CAM Best Practice Award for clinical excellence. The Centre for Health & Human Performance is an exclusive multi-disciplinary centre with over 30 specialists taking the client on a holistic journey of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment – using conventional and advanced medical care.
At present Alessandro is working alongside the doctors and professors at CHHP researching a group of diseases including obesity. Merging his nutritional findings with those of the medical team, the long term aim is to develop the project into a format that could be presented on a large scale.
