Åsa Linéa Simonsson
Åsa means the Healer in Hebrew and Hope in Sanskrit. Linéa is a family name and also the name of a beautiful flower that grows in Sweden where I am from. It is also the female name version of the great Swedish botanist Linnaeus who might well be my ancestor...
I have more than 20 years experience in the medical and healthcare industries and I have always loved helping and inspiring people. I initially started my career as a Nurse some 25 years ago in Sweden. I moved to England in my 20's and started my own, very successful business manufacturing and selling Natural and Organic health and beauty products (Herbal Linéa). At its peak I had several shops and market stalls employing full time and seasonal staff.
After the birth of my children I felt I needed more energy to be able to cope with motherhood and working life. I wanted to feel more energized and so I started experimenting with making changes to my diet. First I stopped eating dairy, then wheat and sugar. I had been a vegetarian on and off since I was 13 and now I decided to stop eating meat again. I also went to see a Nutritional Therapist/Naturopath for some support and help. I was absolutely blown away by how well my new way of eating made me feel. This resulted in a new direction in my life and a passionate love affair with Raw Food. Not only was I feeling better and more energized but I looked better; my skin was clear and glowing for the first time ever in my life (I have suffered from spots and acne since my teens), my weight was back to my pre-pregnancy weight, my hair was shiny and I looked and felt younger. I was so amazed by the way that my new diet made me feel, both physically and mentally, that I decided to study Nutrition full time so that I could help others to feel as well as I do. I was amazed by all the knowledge there is out there and how little most people (including myself at the time) know. I am devoted to sharing this knowledge.
Whilst studying, I worked on myself using detox, fasts, juices, cleanses and other natural techniques. This helped me make even more amazing discoveries about my health both physically, mentally and emotionally. This has helped me make valuable changes in my life as well as my family’s lives. I know I can be super healthy and still eat like a Queen. In my house there is always something happening in the kitchen. Concoctions of creams and lotions have turned into sprouting, fermenting, dehydrating, mixing and blending.
Since then I have qualified as a Nutritional Therapist and a Naturopath with the respected London College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM), following three years of full time study and clinical practice. I am still studying and taking many courses regularly to gain more knowledge. It is something you will continue with forever in the field of health.
I am a member of and regulated by the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapies (BANT). This is the professional body for nutritional therapists and I am bound under their code of conduct. As part of their regulations and also in my own interest I need to keep up to date with new nutritional research so I attend seminars, courses and workshops on a regular basis. I am also fully insured.
I am keen to see a variety of clients and welcome everyone. I specialize in Live Blood Analysis which is an amazing tool to use in a nutritional consultation.
You don’t have to feel ill to benefit from a consultation with me. Live Blood Analysis and Nutritional therapy are especially great tools for preventing disease and is an amazing thing to use as a six monthly or yearly checkup to monitor your health.
I am also a Raw Food Chef and absolutely passionate about Raw Food. I work as a Raw Food Chef at retreats and I do catering. Look out for mine and my colleagues Raw Food Pop Up Restaurant that happens now and then. I am available as a raw chef for any event you are thinking about. Please contact me for further information.
I run various courses and workshops. I regularly teach at my old college CNM in London. You will also find me at my favourite charity 'made in Hackney' running various master classes.
