Paolo Toniolo and I are collaborating together, in order to teach mindful eating, optimal nutrition and how our needs have evolved as well as nutrition for different diseases. www.sapienza-del-corpo.org.
I first met Paolo Toniolo “by chance” at Carminio, a restaurant in the charming Brera district in Milan. Our casual conversation led us to the discovery of a deep common passion for mindful nutrition and Food Culture.
Together we hold workshops and seminars at his studio in Via dell’Orso in Milan or other locations as “guests”.
The main thrust of our work is to guide people in promoting self-awareness about the signs that our body sends us.
We suggest an “auto-experimentation program” by giving them scientifically accurate information along with practical advice about food and lifestyle.
We believe that working in groups is an effective way for sharing and feeling supported about health concerns.
The aim of our business partnership and of our future projects is to re-assess and strive to restore the ancient wisdom that human beings have acquired through evolution, passed on by generation after generation, in a perfect balance between our body and the food that Mother Nature gives us.
In this modern era of ours, where biological wisdom no longer seems to matter, we intend to empower people in assuming responsibility about their own health.
I am very grateful to Paolo for working with me in this project and for making my experience and knowledge grow every day more.
Paolo Toniolo is Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the New York University School of Medicine, USA, and Professor of Social and Preventive Medicine at University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
A graduate of University of Milan Medical School in 1975, he started his research career in cancer epidemiology at the National Tumor Institute in Milan before moving to the United States in 1984.
In New York, he expanded his interests in the fundamental role of endogenous hormones, nutrition and metabolism in the etiology of female tumors, with particular emphasis on cancers of the breast, ovary and endometrium.
In recent years, his professional focus has progressively turned towards a growing involvement in the effort of translating the huge amount of cumulated scientific knowledge into initiatives directed to foster the public’s awareness on the relevance of a correct nutritional habits and lifestyle in the prevention of the most frequent chronic diseases.
