Lic. Martha Cardenas


Martha Patricia Cárdenas Ugalde was born in CDMX and has lived in Monterrey, N.L. since 1997; she is married and has 2 daughters.


Martha has been working as a holistic nutrition professional since 2010. She has a bachelor's degree in food technology; postgraduate studies in holistic nutrition; and is certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner, Oncology Nutrition Consultant, Certified Metabolic Typing Advisor, and Restorative Wellness Solutions Practitioner.


With her professional practice she seeks to help people find answers to their health problems. She is passionate about human behavior and seeking to enrich her ability to help has studied a diploma in neurosciences.


Every day in the clinic she has fun analyzing the person's history and finding the relationship between the person, their symptoms, and the results of functional diagnostic studies. Together with the person concerned, she sets specific, measurable, achievable and realistic goals to be met within a given time frame. Finding a solution is approached from the perspective of functional nutrition. This method addresses the problem through understanding the fact that there has been a loss of function. There is an awareness of ongoing metabolic chaos that is manifesting itself in signs and symptoms.


Balance is achieved by re-establishing the three basic pillars: diet, rest and physical activity or exercise. Martha starts from the premise that each person has a bio individuality and that there is no such thing as one correct diet for all. She works from within an ecological perspective of nutrition and puts the person and their symptoms at the center of her analysis.


The ecological perspective on nutrition recognizes humans on Earth and the natural relationship they have with other living beings with whom they co-inhabit the planet. It places the human individual within the food chain from an omnivorous and heterotrophic perspective, i.e. we recycle raw materials and energy from plants and animals that feed us but we are unable to manufacture our own food in the manner that plants do.


Apart from her practical work, Martha offers courses at Amayal on topics such as digestion, hormones, and basic nutrition principles based on the ecological perspective of nutrition.
