The Importance of Knowing and Nurturing Yourself with Doctor Hassina Kajee

Welcome to the ninth interview of Recipes for Resilience. I am with Dr Hassina Kajee. She is a Specialist Physician and Integrative Medicine Practitioner passionate about empowering her patients in lifestyle choices for better health, including the importance of knowing and nurturing yourself. 

Her professional background includes running the High Care Unit as a Specialist Physician at Groote Schuur hospital during which time non-communicable lifestyle diseases became painfully clear to her. She decided to resign and focus on disease prevention and reversal; joined forces with The Noakes Foundation and co-founded Eat Better South Africa, which is the community arm of The Noakes Foundation that implements affordable low carb interventions in communities. She is also a director on the board of trustees of The Noakes Foundation and The Nutrition Network.

Hassina is also a home-schooling mom, wife and nature lover. She is based in Cape Town, South Africa.
