A former National U.S.A. Swimmer, Stella really began her career at age 13, under the top Olympic coaches and swimmers of the U.S. swim team, she competed at the Junior Olympic and National levels. However, after being diagnosed as severely anemic, her performance level quickly declined.
Despite seeking medical attention, Stella’s anemia only continued to worsen – affecting her physiologically and psychologically. After a year of prescriptions for artificial hormones and numerous doctors’ evaluations, Stella’s mother sought other options.
She was referred to a naturopathic physician who diagnosed Stella by evaluating specific markers in stool, blood and urine testing. Within one month treatment with natural modalities, Stella felt remarkably better. Consequently, the decision to pursue a career in the biological sciences was inevitable.
Stella took courses in Physiology, Anatomy, Chemistry, Food Science, and Nutrition. Stella realized that her true passion resided in the Nutritional Sciences.
Stella expects her Diet, known as “The Diet for a Lifetime” that combines evolutionary biology, nutrigenomics and ingredients found throughout the Mediterranean region.
Stella’s book entitled the “Gut Health Manual and Detox” is due for release this year.

Good Parenting at the Genetic Level: How Your Diet Affects Your Family
In Health News, by Stella Metsovas. Heard the saying that you are what you eat?
Well, according to scientists, it’s true. But it’s not that simple. Recent studies show that while we are a product of what we eat, we are also a product of what our parents and grandparents ate, too.
Why exactly are we affected by the dietary choices of our relatives? Scientists say the answer lies in epigenetics. Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene activity due to outside, environmental factors. These changes do not occur in the actual genetic code. Instead, they occur in the cellular material, such as enzymes and proteins, which surround DNA.
Your children and grandchildren can inherit these changes!
The influence of diet and epigenetics has been shown, for example, in children born to mothers during famine, like the WWII famine in the Netherlands. These children, whose mothers faced malnutrition, had increased chances of health problems throughout their lifetimes.
