Who is Maria Licandro?

clip_image002_thumb4Maria Licandro is a Registered Nutritional Practitioner. She graduated with honours at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, in 2003 and is a member of the I.O.N.C. Association.

She teaches at the C.S.N.N. and has her own practice in Woodbridge, Ontario. She is very committed to her work and her clients and believes that nutrition is the key to prevention and optimum health. She enjoys speaking about nutrition and its benefits to large audiences and participates in yearly holistic conferences to stay on top of new and key information.

Maria’s past career was in Advertising and Print. She has a degree in Creative Advertising and Broadcasting and was working at Promanad Advertising in their print department for 5 years. She is married, and is a mother of three children. Her career change was due to a life changing diagnosis of Cancer.

After an extensive operation, she was told that chemotherapy or radiation was not possible in her case. Due to the extent and area of operation, she was also told she may never walk properly again. The medication they had prescribed helped her pain but did not agree with her and made her very tired. She discovered alternative medicine, diet and yoga played an important role in her journey through a long healing process. Impressed at how she was healing and how her pain improved without medication, she found that she needed to enlighten others by learning more, thus, her change of career to a Nutritionist.

Although there is plenty of information on natural alternatives to be learned, Maria provides a more personal and individual approach to health. She believes in teaching others about their own bodies, and, how to get to the root of their “dis-ease” and not just cover up their symptoms with a pill.

After analyzing an intensive full body assessment, Maria provides her patients with a supportive nutritional program and diet, factoring in any food sensitivities, and considering the individuals’ lifestyle and emotional state. Maria is also certified in Hair tissue testing for levels of heavy metals and minerals that may be the underlying health factor in most individuals, and urine analysis & blood typing is also a service she provides for an added thorough approach to her final analysis. This will provide the individual with a clear grasp on what he/she needs to commit to in order to return to health.

She believes that dedication today improves quality of life tomorrow and that prevention is the best medicine. Eat for life today – make your health your number one priority. P.S. Maria participates in “Walk-to-cure-Cancer” and other charity 5km marathons, and is cancer-free.


Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth – the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help open that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

– Goethe
