A naturotherapy practitioner since 2006, Sejal Vora is her own best example.
A graduate in Political Science (1996, St. Xavier's College, Mumbai), she soon discovered an innate entrepreneurial spirit. This prevailed and took her away as far as New York. By 2000, she was deeply immersed in a flourishing jewellery business.
Unfortunately, the lifestyle that followed success at a young age was an unhealthy one. The result was an additional 30 kgs in body weight, high blood pressure, recurring tonsillitis, PCOD, skin rashes, frequent headaches and constant fatigue, to name just a few of her ailments. To control these alarming developments she switched to 'diet' colas and other such fad foods; quickly realizing the trap it lays for consumers—literally out of the frying pan and into the fire! But not quickly enough.
It was only at the end of 2004, frustrated with the way her health and fitness levels were dropping, that Sejal decided to move back to Mumbai, padlocking corporate life.
Here she consulted a variety of alternative healers, ranging from yoga masters to hypnotherapists. Drawing from the best of all that she saw and learnt, Sejal came to the clear realization that "food is medicine".
Practising all of what she now brings to her clients, she not only lost over 30 kilograms over a three-year period, but also cured herself completely and is in peak health for over five years.
Her experiences inspired her to get certified training in Natural Medicine & ThetaHealing. She now works with people with clinical and non clinical illnesses. Having worked with hundreds of patients suffering from chronic colds to cancer, Sejal believes firmly that we need first to change our attitude towards 'disease'. We need to address ailments with our mind, learn to take charge of our body, learn about correct nutrition and practise it rigorously
This path is the best route from sickness to vibrant recovery and long term health.
"Sejal Vora changed my life forever, and quite honestly - saved it. During the course of my first, one on one session with Sejal she pushed me to get a sonography immediately.That is when I was diagnosed with Stage III ovarian cancer. But for Sejal I wouldn't be sitting here today writing this recommendation.
Her approach is truly unique: She comes to you, provides an in-depth education for you to truly understand how your body works (busting several myths along the way) and empowers you with all the information you require to listen to your own body.
She is NOT a dietician, or a mere nutritionist. She tailor-makes a nutritional plan especially for you, depending on your particular health problem, so that you make a complete lifestyle change - should you want it. It is a wake-up call that you'll be thankful for.
If you are ready to change your life, forever - call Sejal. I'm currently cancer-free and owe a major part of my healing to her. My kitchen and lifestyle choices have her stamp all over them."
