I found myself in a very difficult point in my life, and was in deep state of depression. I had a lack of appetite, l lost an unhealthy amount of weight, became iron deficient, and battled insomnia. Hanna Rakowska came into my life at the right time and her supportive nature allowed me to feel open about my challenges. From the day that I first met Hanna, her bouncy enthusiasm for her work was infectious. She is a very knowledgeable professional who brings a nutritional approach that was easy to follow. Hanna, is very in tune with her clients, she gets to know your challenges, goals, follows up consistently and continues to support you. For me, she supported me and went above and beyond. She truly works with her clients in a manner that best suits their needs. I got a better understanding of the nutritional content of various foods and how they worked together in the human body to aid in healthy living. It would be my pleasure to recommend Hanna Rakowska and would be most happy to speak about my personal experience in depth. Thank you Hanna, for all you did to get my life back on track.

I was a client of Hanna’s last year. She worked with me in addressing my osteoarthritis and digestion problems. I very much appreciated her professionalism, and the clear, explicit, and concise way she presented the dietary recommendations she gave me. Along with a dietary plan, she also gave me wonderful recipes that were simple to make and let me enjoy healthy food. I highly recommend her as a passionate, dedicated, and knowledgeable nutritionist.

Hanna is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition. She will 100% help you reach your optimum health if you’re feeling sluggish, tired, imbalanced, etc. Highly recommended!

Hanna is awesome at giving health and nutrition advice. Full trust!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Hanna for nearly 10 years now. I first met her as a student while she was becoming a Dental Hygienist.
Hanna was a dedicated student and devoted to the care of her patients. Her work ethic back then was undeniable.
I have also had the opportunity to work with Hanna in her new career as a holistic nutritionist. I highly recommend her. She is thorough, kind, and very practical. She has vast life experiences that in my opinion make her the person to go to for holistic nutrition.  I would definitely use her again and would have no problem allowing her to work with my family.
Don’t take my word for it. Contact her! It will be clear after just one minute speaking to her.

Hanna worked with me after I suffered a severe fracture to my wrist one year ago and found out that I had osteopenia.  I had no idea that the foods I was eating might be contributing to my osteopenia, which could eventually lead to full-blown osteoporosis. Hanna educated me in the best foods to eat for bone growth and which ones to avoid to prevent bone mineral loss. My wrist ended up healing much faster than my surgeon expected, and it is fully functional now (something that we were not expecting). I truly believe that my body was able to heal as quickly as it did thanks to Hanna’s counselling and her recommendations. You will immediately sense her passion for helping others, and her knowledge is simply outstanding.

I would encourage anyone who is or has a loved who is fighting cancer to get in contact with Hanna at Back to Balance Nutrition. She is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about being healthy both during and after defeating cancer. I really believe she is the best of the best. When my family and I felt hopeless about the doctors prognosis on my fathers life (12-18 months max- and only if he could handle the extensive chemo and radiation that would only help to prolong but not save his life) we turned to alternative options. Hanna was there with support and advice and she was so positive and confident that her suggestions would help. Well sure enough, we are at the end of the 18 months, dad was never sick during treatment, he has been feeling really great overall and surprising us all he went back to work full time. He continues to follow the regime back to balance suggested and is continuing to beat the odds. His cancer, although very aggressive and terminal has not progressed and doctors encourage him to continue “whatever it is he is doing!” My family and I cannot thank Hanna enough for her skill and expertise. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you, we are forever grateful. You are an absolute angel!

Another energizing class on Friday!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. If you have ever wondered if you found the right calling – yes, you have. You have presented the information so well and I really appreciate that we can discuss questions and our own situations as they arise. So I’m really looking forward to the next classes. Thanks again Hanna. I’m feeling so much better already. I  just wanted to tell you how excited I am to have all these new tools to help me get healthier!  ????

I’ve already learned really good stuff. Thank you so much!!!



I took Hann’s Nutrition Program at Change Pain this summer and I loved it.

Hanna is an amazing teacher – the information was presented in an easily understood format and further she went the extra step to answer and research any questions we had.  I learned a lot and I loved the hands on way she taught – the 7 day challenge made me put the information she gave us into practice, and I am glad I did – I have more consistent energy through the day and I am sleeping better.

She introduced us to superfoods by bringing in samples and gave us recipes to try and provided us with many useful resources.  This course exceeded my expectations and I can’t recommend it highly enough!
