My name is Gabi Jaffe, I’m a certified naturopath (ND) and live in Tel-Aviv. I graduated after four years of studies, from Campus Broshim, College of Alternative Medicine Tel Aviv University. In addition I earned a diploma in Herbal Medicine.
My special interest is supporting and guiding women develop a positive body image for themselves, achieve a healthy weight through a well-balanced personalized eating plan to suit their unique needs, as well as helping create a healthy lifestyle to ensure my client’s reach optimal health for life.
During my childhood and adolescent years I suffered from being chubby, experiencing ever worsening stomach aches, asthma and allergies. I had no energy and was drastically lacking in self-esteem and confidence. My self-image was zero and my school life was marred with humiliation and worthlessness at the hands of unsympathetic sport’s teachers.
Like many young girls, the pressure of the media telling us what we should look like lead me to diet. I tried many different diets, like a slave i counted calories, weighed meals and spent many hours in the gym.
I was determined to discover the right path to finding happiness and being able to love myself and my body. This was when I decided to study Naturopathy and specialize in nutrition and body image.
Following the principles I learned – eating an abundance of the right foods and doing gentle exercise, my weight stabilized. To my surprise the ailments I had suffered since childhood disappeared and I now had energy and a zest for life.
No longer was I at war with my body, but finally I was giving it the attention it craved and deserved. I was nourishing my body with a healthy plant based diet, no longer punishing myself in the gym and I now take long daily, healthy walks with my dog. I finally learned how to love myself & the body I am in. I am happy with who I am and all that I can be.
Each person is unique, one-of-a-kind, so therefore each treatment is individualized to suit the client’s exclusive needs. By incorporating various techniques, as well as a lot of personal experience, I’m able to bring about positive changes in my client’s attitude towards their food, health and particularly towards themselves and all aspects of their life.
During the first consultation I get to know and understand my clients by discussing their eating habits, lifestyle, personal and family medical history and what their personal goals are.
With a compassionate approach I work on 3 basic areas and find a way to balance NUTRITION, MIND and LIFESTYLE
"You have taught me to live life and not wait to loose weight first. By doing this I realize how the weight was never the thing getting in the way of my happiness."
"I cannot begin to thank you. After 30 years of trying every trick and specialist you have given me freedom from myself. Freedom from focusing on food and freedom to start living."
"My 14 year old daughter M became vegan and I had no idea what to give her. Our family doctor sent us to the Kupat Holim dietician who tried to speak M out of being vegan and gave me suggestions on how to use TVP – which my daughter hated.
A waiter in a vegan restaurant recommended Gabi. What a stark difference between Gabi’s approach and the Kupa’s dietician. Not only is Gabi a delightful person, she is genuinely kind, caring and passionate about a healthy lifestyle. M is thriving on eating a healthy plant based diet and even prepares some of her own meals now. I highly recommend Gabi to anyone who is struggling adopting a healthy vegan diet".
"I am feeling blessed to be on this journey with Gabi – She has made a huge difference in my life like no therapist, doctor or other specialist in my life".
"By focusing on why and how I eat instead of only what I eat, I see that the food was not the problem but rather the excuse".
My name is Marian. I am a vegan for many many years. I have also suffered from fibromyalgia. I was very lucky to get a referal to meet Gabi. Gabi taught me the right foods to eat, to improve my condition and lesson the pain, and those foods, usually acidic to avoid, which were detrimental too me. By my second meeting with her, I was somewhat surprised myself but also very excited to tell her, that I was walking better and that the pain had significantly subsided. Gabi has the answers!!! But more than that, she is one special, warm, sincerely devoted and caring lady. I could go on and on writing a out her. In short, I truly love and admire her and also her honesty and self integrity. Anyone who shall fall into Gabi's hands is one very lucky person
