Anna-Karin Aksberg grew up in Stockholm, Sweden, food was always an important part of her life. Her mother cooked everything from scratch: baking bread, sprouting beans – hers was probably the only family who ate brown rice in the 1970s.
She moved to London in the 90s and worked as a Project Manager in the City. Long hours and late nights meant she ate on the go, and didn’t exercise enough.
It was when she and her husband decided to try for a baby she realised how much her health had deteriorated. A stressful job and a poor diet had taken its toll and she couldn’t conceive.
That’s when she decided to go back to her roots to focus on her diet. She read a few books about food, health and fertility, did her own research and started to make changes. She began feeling better almost instantly and got pregnant through IVF.
She decided to study nutritional therapy. She works according to the Functional Medicine principles that everyone is unique; her food and lifestyle protocols are bespoke to suit individual preferences and requirements.
