─ About Me
Welcome to Project of Health
My name is Biljana Sofronijoska Rece, RDN, LD, IFMCP and I am the founder and creator of “ Project of Health”. I am proud to be part of the Institute for Functional Medicine practitioners tribe as of last year and add functional dietitian to my credentials as registered dietitian, licensed nutritionist. Being of Macedonian descent, living 20 + years following the Mediterranean like old food practices, encountering the Standard American Diet when moving to the USA, I have had a unique chance to learn and compare two most different ways of life, and explore the enormous impact of food and different food practices and lifestyle to health.
This wealth of information, experiences, training, and years of clinical practice using principals of medical nutrition therapy with patients suffering with chronic diseases, managing, but never practicing in the realm of preventing, optimizing health has contributed to the creation of Project of Health. The understanding and practice of power of food as medicine in correlation with health, chronic disease and well being, as well as a strong social factor in everything related to it, has paved the way for the need of my new endeavor to share, teach and guide you while achieving your balance in health and reaching your vibrant well being. I am a great supporter and believer that the future of health and well being will flourish with personalized medicine, personalized nutrition, using food as medicine, and lifestyle as medicine. The fact that one size does not fit all, that we are all unique in our own way, that our life, thoughts and experiences shape us into who we are, while influencing in great manner our well being. It is known now that it is not written in stone how our genes influence the outcomes of our health and wellbeing, the studies of nutrigenomics and the powerful ability of our bodies to strive for balance and homeostasis, once we provide the substrates for it that is. It is never too late to start caring for your health and want more of life. It is absolutely fair and not selfish at all to yourself and others to want more of life, to want more health, laughter, happiness, sunshine, mental capacity, physical strength and endurance to make and reach your optimal goals whatever they may be. Whether you are thinking on how much weight lost you can achieve in one month, or detox your body, or address your metabolic health, your blood pressure variations, abnormal blood sugar and lipid values, your visceral fat adiposity in a different, more personalized, proper way to address these questions, is finding the right diet and nutrition support, the right lifestyle techniques in a way that will be sustainable and specific to you, to the point of becoming a real habit and a way of life. Not just something to do on your to do list for this month. How my approach differs from other programs is because it is highly personalized, custom made for you specifically in a way that incorporates food and lifestyle as medicine.
By using the advanced practice of personalized medical nutrition therapy(MNT) as the core of practice as a dietitian, nutritionist – which uses principle derived from the sciences of food, nutrition, management, communication, biology, physiology and social studies, combined with Functional Nutrition Approach – which address factors that underline chronic disease by using food and personalized therapeutic lifestyle as medicine, allows me to look at the patient, at you as a whole, rather than just a diagnosis and symptoms to treat and alleviate. I strongly believe together we can find a way, an understanding, a different, more natural, organic, more intimate if I may say, more specific and personalized approach to your health and well being with you being at the center and an active participant the process.
