Hello! I'm Ilay Polat, the founder of IP Health and your guide on this transformative journey to optimal health and well-being.

With a foundation built on extensive education in Nutrition and Dietetics and hands-on experience from around the globe, I am dedicated to bringing you a blend of the best in evidence-based nutrition and personalized care.

 

My professional path has taken me from the clinical settings of Istanbul's healthcare institutions to the personal interactions of my nutrition clinics, where I've guided countless individuals toward healthier, more vibrant lives. My approach is deeply personal; I believe in listening to your unique story and crafting a wellness plan that resonates with your needs and aspirations.

My Educational Odyssey

My journey into health and wellness began at Halic University in Istanbul, where I pursued my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics.

The quest for deeper knowledge led me to Okan University, where I completed my Master's Degree, further cementing my commitment to understanding the complex relationship between diet, health, and lifestyle.

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) marked a pivotal chapter in my journey, where I embraced the Integrative Nutrition and Health Coaching program. This experience not only broadened my knowledge base but also shaped my holistic approach to wellness, emphasizing the importance of balancing physical well-being with emotional and spiritual health.

Currently, I am enriching my expertise with PhD studies, delving into cutting-edge wellness paradigms that promise to redefine the landscape of holistic health practices.

My passion for wellness extends beyond my professional life into my practices. I find joy and balance in nature through peaceful meditations by the sea or engaging yoga sessions. As a lifelong learner, I am constantly seeking new knowledge in health and all aspects of life that contribute to well-being.
