Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Rema Azzawi, founder of ElixirNutrition, located in Kanata, ON, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Orthomolecular Nutrition Is a form of health science which aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on each person's unique Biochemical Individuality and Nutritional Symptomatology using food and supplements natural to the body. Nutritional Symptomatology combined with Biochemical Individuality is a motivational approach that allows my clients to become full participants in their own health care. This method surveys and analyzes a person's unique array of symptoms to help discover possible nutritional causes of their concerns and interpret deficiencies and imbalances long before they show up on laboratory tests.
