I’m a biotech engineer, with a huge professional experience in the pharmaceutical quality (CV), I had cancer and an internal hemorrhage from cancer, with consequent long rehabilitation in hospitals (7 months). Since then I’m fully engaged in primary prevention, namely:
- have a healthy diet;
- do a correct physical activity;
- have a good mental health (e.g. good sleep, relax or stress management).
A secondary prevention consists of early diagnosis and this can only be managed by doctors, in collaboration with patients.
With this website, and for free, I want to share with you some important information on nutrition, sport and lifestyle to improve your health and life at your best. Why? I have been through serious health problems myself and I have felt on my own skin how best to react and move forward!
My posts, collected in menu/nutrition/news, are most in Italian (IT), English (EN), French (FR) and German (DE): scientific or non-scientific sources are often external links from official websites, such as those of Swiss Confederation, WHO, WCRF or others.
Here my qualifications:

My history about cancer
In 2016 I was a 42-year-old person working in the pharmaceutical industry as someone qualified as a food & biotech engineer (Bachelor of Science, BSc) to certify every batch of drugs before sale or delivery. Every batch must comply with relevant guidelines and requirements. It is a responsible position as a Qualified Person (QP). Living with my 9-year-old son. I was a person who knew how to manage work and family life perfectly, following the principle of ‘work-life-balance’.
I was diagnosed with a form of curable leukemia which was healed by the use of specific treatments. This cancer caused a resultant internal hemorrhage, so I was rushed to Hospital and miraculously saved. I tried to create an attitude of positivity, persistence and willingness to transform and improve my well-being. As a result, my life changed positively.
After important operations and cancer treatments, my body, my personality and my life have undergone major transformations, finding inside an “enrichment” and learned to accept/manage.
Immediately after the operations, I was ANGRY about my new situation, because I had temporarily lost all my body-balance, which affected my ability to walk and, in general, to move and do my favorite sport activities… Unfortunately even my left eye and sight had changed (diplopie).
Fortunately, I had a very positive reaction right away. I had straight this positive though: all cells in my body will regenerate, I just have to be patient and wait… I have learned to transform my anger about situations that I can’t control into positive energy to heal, and I have found a new balance between ‘beat illness’ and ‘follow the flow of life’.
I practiced patience and became more trustful. I worked hard on improving my body’s well-being by making important changes in my daily nutrition, only after medical advices and controls, and always focussing on rehabilitation therapies. This all helped me to go forward, live more in the nature, change my nutrition, in a seagan diet. This diet followed a plant-based one, that includes vegetables, legumes pressure cooked, nuts, seeds, and grains like millet or sorghum, with fish (2-3 portions per week) and egg (1 each 2 weeks). Vegetables are only organic, local and seasonal. No red meat, no pork, no poultry, no diary, no sugars, no refined flour, no processed food, no junky food, less artificial added chemicals (organic). The nutritional value of my diet was confirmed by specific analysis and supervised from my doctors.
This disciplined nutrition and the excellent lifestyle allow me to recover easier, prevent further diseases and make rapid progress in improving my general well-being.
Having personally experienced the power of nutrition, lifestyle and medical therapies, I have decided to commit myself to share my story with you and, hopefully, inspire you.
I’m deeply grateful to all the people whom I love for their precious presence, help and support during this difficult period of my life.
“The progress of healing is miraculous, never give up!”
