Dr.Alenka Brozina, M.D.
Internal medicine specialist, cardiologist (subspecialty)
Born in 1973 in Rijeka, graduated in 1999 at Faculty of Medicine, University of Rijeka. In the year 2006 I received the professional title of Internal Medicine Specialist, with a subspecialty in cardiology.
For many years, I have been dedicated to research of diet impact on human body and health. I completed numerous foreign and domestic postgraduate education courses, among which are those in the area of diet therapy, clinical nutrition, sports medicine and sports cardiology. I received my Master’s Degree in “Physiological, Alimentary and Pharmacological Aspects of Sports and Fitness” in Camerino (Italy) as well as “Fundamentals of Holistic Diet” in London (England).
For many years I have been actively participating as a lecturer in weight loss trainer programs, and by 2015 I had worked as Head of Food and Diet Therapy Ambulance at “Thalassotherapy” in Opatija.
My passion for phyto aromatherapy lead me to another successfully completed education course. In 2010 I graduated at Phyto Aromatherapy School managed and mentored by Dr Sc Stribor Markovic.
I regularly participate in various educational activities as a lecturer and research partner.
By the year 2013 I had been the vice president of the Association of the Celiac Patients in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Region, and since 2015 I have been head of the Adenium Centre, the Association for the Promotion of Proper Nutrition, Clinical Phyto Aromatherapy and Holistic Approach to Health.
I also work at Primorje-Gorski Kotar County’s Medical Centre as a specialist in internal medicine, specifically cardiology and pulmonology. Being a person who suffers from an untimely diagnosed celiac disease, as well as other intolerance and food hypersensitivity myself, in my work I put the emphasis on a holistic and individual approach, primarily disease prevention and treatment, as well as clinical application of phyto aromatherapy and diet therapy.
