About Sals

Hi, I’m Sals, founder of Miyan Nutrition. I’m a registered associate nutritionist (ANutr) with the Association for Nutrition and I have a BSc in Nutritional Sciences. I am also an active researcher and I am currently studying for a PhD in healthcare science, with a focus on the role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of chronic disorders.

I have always been fascinated with nutrition.

I have always struggled with weight and several chronic conditions from a young age. As far back as I can remember, I have always been overweight, even as a kid. I remember being bullied in school and struggling to control my eating habits as a teenager. In high school, I suffered some serious injuries when I was involved in a car accident, and for about a year I had to use crutches and suffered a lot with my knees healing from the impact of the accident. As I grew older I became more and more in pain, not just with my knees, but over my whole body, but it wasn’t until my 30s that I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME, also knows as chronic fatigue syndrome of CFS. As well as this, I had always suffered with extremely heavy and painful menstrual cycles, and was also diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS. All of these disorders are classed as chronic and, as you can imagine, are all pretty debilitating and limiting at times; and so exercise has always been difficult for me.

I am passionate about helping people to find healthy relationships with food and to learn more about the right nutrition to meet their individual body’s needs. I love to go on a journey of discovery with clients and explore how food has influenced them, and how they think and feel about food and nutrition; and how they can develop a new understanding and relationship with food for a healthy and fulfilled future.
