The Health Republic Team

Meet our dedicated team.


Edit Pfendesack

Edit is a certified nutritionist. She wrote her first meal plan for herself as a teenager and understood the main principle of weight loss and healthy eating quite early. Short term and trendy diets are not enough to maintain a healthy body weight, a lifestyle change which is easy to implement into daily life is the solution. After working years in sales and finance as an economist and completing her first nutrition certificate, Edit decided to follow her wellness path and started private counselling. Edit is also a trained yoga teacher and combines her nutrition consultations with her yoga and anatomy knowledge to improve the body and the mind. She believes that how you feel and how you look are based on diet, how optimized your digestion is, balanced nutrition and proper exercise routines. Correct nutrition can heal your body and soul.
