Nutritional therapy & counselling
Praxis Lemm is a Holistic Clinic in Berlin that focuses on nutritional therapy and counselling to help people achieve health & wellbeing. Dr Vesna Lemm has more then 30 years experience in nutritional therapy and from her own personal experience has seen how nutrition can heal the root of many diseases. At Praxis Lemm we understand the importance of honouring the body’s own feedback system and its’ incredible capacity to restore, regenerate, and correct itself — when given the tools and nutrients to do so. Every body is different so every nutritional advice should be tailored individually to the person.
From our experience it has shown us that long-term success can be best achieved through small steps not large complete diet changes. Diets that are very restrictive are often less effective than balanced small changes in eating habits.

losing weight & gaining weight
Medical nutrition therapy is a type of treatment for people who are overweight. It’s also for people with certain health conditions. For losing weight we use a combination of 3 treatments: nutritional therapy, acupuncture and wing-wave method. We have seen the most success when combining these three methods together.
If you are underweight, you may find you come up against health challenges such as fatigue and a weakened immune system. At Praxis Lemm we’ll first look at the causes of low weight including investigating the bowel for parasites. After this Dr Lemm will personalise a high calorie diet plan as well as lifestyle tips.
Counselling for vegan diets
If you are following a vegan diet, you need to be aware of your intake of some specific nutrients to keep a balanced diet. Dr Lemm was vegan for over a decade and at the start she experienced a lack of nutrients and energy. This is why she specialised in making a program for vegans that first diagnoses their nutritional status through blood tests and then makes a specific diet plan and sees what supplements might be needed.
The ketogenic diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain
Due to Dr. Lemm’s colitis, which she has suffered from since childhood she has had to try many different diets keep the inflammation as low as possible. The diet has helped her the most and therefore has been studying it in great depth. But the ketogenic diet should be medically monitored, particularly during the first few weeks or months of first trying it. At Praxis Lemm we help guide patients with their Ketongenic diets and monitor there results.
Fasting is voluntarily not eating food for varying lengths of time. Fasting is used as a medical therapy for many conditions. It is also a spiritual practice in many religions. In fasting we promote autophagy, which is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells. Fasting can help with many diverse illnesses as well as vitalising your body with energy. At Praxis Lemm we give advice ob what type of fasting is best suitable for you and guide you through the process.

Eating disorders are important and they are, mostly, the problems of the young women and less the men. In Praxis Lem our aim is to give support to a family and, most importantly, a young person what to eat without the problems of gaining weight.
Because eating disorder is one of psychosomatic illnesses, it is very important to recommend psychological treatments and we are recommending subconscious treatments like hypnosis and EMDR
Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia nervosa are very common, particularly among the girls and young generation which need to be treated together with nutritional counseling and, also, on the psychological level on which I have collaborated with psychologists. With the combination of the psychological and nutritional counseling results are possible, and I have seen that more than it is, generally, said it is possible.
