This is my journey

Marilia Pereira, BA, CNP, RNCP, ROHP, CNE, CR

Registered Holistic Nutritionist & Culinary Nutrition Expert
Clinical Iridologist & Certified Reflexologist

A zest for life, positive attitude and giving spirit are at the core of this passion-driven nutritionist.  When Marilia decided to shift her business savvy skills from the corporate world, her passion and dream manifested with her nutrition and lifestyle coaching practice; Fleurish.  During the past ten years, from Toronto to New Zealand, she has been helping people achieve their health goals with nutritional consultations, energy medicine therapy, corporate and private events, public speaking and workshops.


Marilia’s interest in holistic nutrition began in her teenage years when she struggled with digestive issues and skin problems.  When modern medicine failed to help her, Marilia took her health into her own hands and began researching and building her own library of alternative medicine and home remedy books.  Realizing the amazing benefits of wholesome nutrition and a holistic lifestyle changes, she became more passionate in the wellness field.  As her resources for natural health and alternative remedies grew, so did the number of family members and friends who naturally gravitated toward Marilia for holistic health advice.

An attitude of gratitude brings great opportunities

While her career started off in the corporate environment, from I.T. to finance, years later Marilia gained a strong calling and drive to pursue something greater which combined her love for nutrition and interest in alternative medicine, as well as her desire and passion in helping people.  After much research, the answer was in holistic nutrition where Marilia attended the Institute of Holistic Nutritionist and graduated with honours and as valedictorian of her class.

Marilia holds an honours diploma in Applied Holistic Nutrition; earning the designation of Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP Hons) and Clinical Iridologist from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition (IHN).  Additional education includes a diploma  Culinary Nutrition Expert (CNE Hons) from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, a certificate in Pregnancy and Early Childhood Nutrition from IHN, and a certificate in Foot Reflexology from the Ontario College of Reflexology.

As a holistic nutritionist and privately regulated member of the International Organization of Nutritional Consultants (I.O.N.C) in Canada, Marilia maintains her accredited standings as a Registered Nutritional Consulting Practitioner (RNCP) and Orthomolecular Health Practitioner (ROHP).  Through the Ontario College of Reflexology, Marilia also maintains her accredited member standings as a Certified Foot Reflexologist.  With these regulations, her holistic services are covered by most extended health care benefit plans. Marilia also holds a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Information Technology.

Her passion for nurturing wellness extends beyond consultations, actively contributing to the next generation’s education, in her role as a mentor in the Student Advisor Program at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition.  Additionally, she proudly serves as an instructor for the Lifewatchers Program at Goodness Me Natural Health Market, where she facilities engaging classes that promote healthy eating, holistic well-being and empowers individuals to make mindful, health-conscious choices in the 8-week program.


Marilia’s goal with all her clients is to listen, understand, educate and provide a holistic approach to nutrition and wellness.  Her objective is to inspire and empower people to achieve their health goals with simple wellness solutions.  

She believes holistic health is more than just food and restrictive diets - it's about restoring health on a cellular level, using the power of nature, whole foods, herbs, supplements and wellness therapies, based on an individual’s biochemistry, to improve health. “You are what you think, eat, absorb, assimilate and eliminate”.  The goal is to use nourishing foods and holistic lifestyle solutions to establish healthy habits, empowering long-term health.

Empty yourself and let the universe fill you

During her spare time Marilia enjoys the fun of the great outdoors including running, going on nature walks, snowboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, hiking and bike riding.  In the kitchen, she enjoys cooking and experimenting with different recipes while actively sharing her passion on social media.  Keeping fit with zumba, yoga, nature walks and fitness class are also a part of her healthy lifestyle, as well as unwinding with a good book and a cup of tea, or having a movie or sports night with her husband and rescue dog Oreo.
