Hi, I am Elzette Struwig, registered dietitian and owner of Metabolica Med (PTY) Ltd 2016.

We understand that food is one of the many joys of life. We would like to support you with your journey to a healthy lifestyle in a realistic and practical way.

I have studied BDietetics at the University of Pretoria and underwent training on the ketogenic diet at Matthew’s Friends Keto-College in the United Kingdom.

I have been working with high-fat diets for the past few years and am also an advocate for the ketogenic diet in refractory epilepsy and in cancer as combination therapy.
