Kamila Veljkovic, CNS

My name is Kamila Veljkovic, I am Certified Nutrition Specialist® Founder and Lead Nutritionist of Complete Health for Women, a virtual women’s clinic where I specialize in helping women with autoimmune disease and general health issues to reverse their conditions through holistic nutrition and lifestyle strategies.
As a holistic nutritionist, I believe that the key to reversing autoimmune disease lies in addressing the root cause of the disease. This means taking a comprehensive, whole person approach that considers all aspects of your health and lifestyle, from your diet and nutrition to your stress levels, sleep habits and exercise routine. This may include dietary changes, supplementation, lifestyle modifications, and other natural therapies that support optimal thyroid function and overall wellness.

I am a very compassionate dedicated hard-working individual who treats people with respect and dignity. I find worth in every person, and I respect the individual’s right to self-determination. My background in hospital medicine, cardiology, and psychiatry/addiction medicine for more than 25 years allows me to approach patients in a multidisciplinary fashion.
I have experience in various settings including Montefiore and Mount Sinai Health Systems. I have accomplished a success rate of greater than 90% of my patient’s adherence to Hepatitis C treatment at one of the Mount Sinai Beth Israel outpatient clinics. This was due partly because of my willingness to go the extra mile to facilitate their treatment during their clinic visit.
