Meet the scientific creator of Diet Praxis & founder of the NMTA® method

Hi! My name is Ageliki Makri & I welcome you to Diet Praxis.

About Me

I have been working as a clinical nutritionist since 1997. I am the founder of Diet Praxis & the scientific creator of the NMTA® (Nutritional Metabolomic and Temperament Analysis) approach which I’ve developed after many years of scientific research.

After completing the first cycle of my studies and graduating from the Advanced Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki with a degree in Nutrition, I wanted to immerse myself more in my science. My motivation arose from the fact that a false image of what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet had begun to set in. Believing that this static approach was superficial and ultimately ineffective or even inversely effective in many cases, I decided to develop and combine my knowledge by studying relevant scientific subjects.

So, I continued with postgraduate studies in Metabolomics at the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Thessaly and with a doctoral dissertation on stress and pregnancy pathology, at the Medical School of the University of Athens. Since then, my scientific interest has focused on Nutrigenomics and Metabolomics, while I have been researching and evaluating the effect of stress on the body and in particular its impact on metabolic disorders, neuromusculoskeletal disorders, infertility, insomnia, food sensitivities – intolerances, dysmenorrhoea, etc.

Mission & Vision

Up until 2018, I had been teaching Holistic and Energy Nutrition at NHS (Natural Health Science). In recent years, I have been organizing seminars and workshops on the pathophysiology of stress and its management techniques, while at the same time I stay informed and participate in conferences concerning my science both in Greece and abroad. All of the above led me, through search and research, to develop my own method of evaluating and analysing nutrition and food, depending on the power those two have to either support or hinder the metabolic process. The NMTA® approach is different yet innovative. Combining Hippocratic-Pythagorean philosophies with modern metabolomics in practice results in something much more essential than losing weight. It leads to physical and mental balance; and a truly healthy lifestyle. This is the approach we apply exclusively in our office and we invite you to get to know it and discover a new well-rounded experience of health and wellness.
