Headshot_smallerPaula Martinac, M.A., M.S., is a nutrition educator and holistic health coach. She is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition (candidate).

Paula spent the first 20 years of her career as a writer, editor, and journalist, until a cancer diagnosis forever changed the way she viewed health and wellness. Although she survived cancer through conventional surgery and medicine, she thrived thanks to nutritional healing and complementary treatments. She now counsels others who would like to make the journey to a healthier life in which they feel better, stronger, calmer and more energized, enjoying a longer, more vibrant life. She also writes regularly for the websites of the San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, Arizona Republic and the Lance Armstrong Foundation on nutrition and health topics. Her special research and coaching interests include stress-busting, weight loss and management, reversal of metabolic syndrome, healthy aging, and women’s health issues.

Paula calls her practice “Nutrition U,” because she believes at some point we all need to go “back to school” when it comes to our relationship to food and health. Many of us have gotten off track, thinking of food as something that needs to be quick and cheap rather than fuel for our many bodily functions. In her practice, she counsels and educates people – individually and in groups – on holistic health and wellness strategies that focus on food and nutrition, dietary supplements and herbs, relaxation and stress management, and physical exercise, helping them to create and follow individualized health plans.

    Good Morning Paula, I have a client who is an oncology professor from the University of Florida- he has created a nutritiional drink (it’s actually called a medical food) called Enterade-r. All natural made of water, salts and a combination of amino acids, Enterade-r has helped many patients combat the side effects from chemotherapy and radiation. They have also received a grant from NASA because the astronauts are drinking it as they suffer from the same side effects when they are exposed to solar flares. I was hoping that you would like to feature Enterade on your blog. Their website is and I’m happy to send you a sample if you are interested. Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions- thank you! CeCe Wilck 310-386-8113
