Sejal Vora
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.
"We live in a world of fast pace and quick escapes rejoicing ever so smugly, until the demons of our thoughtlessness come to haunt us again". What Sejal's method of healing does is unique and at once logical; she addresses the root cause of the matter that ails one and eradicates it from the bottom up, minimizing health issues and uplifting one's quality of living. That is key.
What is path breaking is that she also empowers one by imparting knowledge and techniques that one can approach in a simple manner for good health and healing. Sejal is fearless and positive with her dedication to one's serious health challenges and above all teaches us to be responsible physically, mentally and spiritually.
The world is a better place with her at the helm of practice and so are we".
