When a friend of mine has been going through chemotherapy I was looking for the best accompanying natural therapies to ameliorate her every day´s life. I contacted holistic doctor Gisela Heldt from whom I had read and heard much. She practices as doctor in Berlin, combining traditional medicine and naturopathic treatment. She has been working out holistic therapies to heal those who suffer from severe illnesses and to ameliorate their quality of life. The basis of the healthy lifestyle is a plant based diet (find more about here and recipes on the menu bar). Everybody can start it at any time, and by the way, it has enormous – even ANTI AGING – effects …
I have always been interested in medicine as well as in art and in pretty things. When I started studying there were many who took up Medical Studies. So I chose Literature and History of Arts and graduated as doctor phil. As I stayed always interested in healthy living, I trained two years at a Swiss College to become nutritionist (completed end January 2017). Since always I have tried to keep my body fit and have been healthy cooking for a very long time – plant based, vegan, starch free and free of soy products as it is said to be the healthiest diet. Eating plant based and vegan prevents cardiac and circulatory troubles as well as cancer and – it is anti-aging and keeps you fit and healthy.
Beyond that I have always, always, always been looking on the bright side of life. I will try to inspire you and to influence you with my humor and to divert those who are sad or ill. And I will also try to make everyone know how to cook deliciously healthy meals.
Sincerely, Gabriele Liechtenstein, Medici &More (Facebook)
PS.: Forgot to tell you why the blog is called MEDICI & MORE. It is a play on words. Firstly, it is the name of the famous family from Tuscany, who had ruled Florence and Tuscany for three centuries and who were known for their taste and for their lifestyle. The Dukes Cosimo il Vecchio, Lorenzo Magnifico (on the portrait on the very top), Catherina and Maria are the most known family members. The two ladies became Queens of France by marriage.
Secondly, the Italian word MEDICI means “medical scientists” or “doctors in medicine”.
