FOOD IS MEDICINE


You are what you eat
The human body was never designed to accept chemicals and drugs. Food is the original health giver and healer and continues to be the best one.
Most patients come to Sejal for clinical solutions. However, in today's world poor quality eating and ignorance about foods is proven to be at the root of most illnesses. Therefore Sejal starts with a nutritional balance programme tailored to each patient's unique needs.
To do this, it is important to clear some misconceptions about food.
  • Contrary to popular belief, salt is absolutely essential for the body. However, the quality of the salt used is critical. Chemically refined iodized salt is pure white only because it has its nutrients flushed out. Sejal advocates replacing it on all kitchen shelves with natural rock salt
  • Oil is necessary for cooking but here again, 'refined' is a no-no. The process remorselessly filters out the natural goodness of the oil.Several healthier options are available.
  • Milk should be consumed in very small quantities as it is acidic.
Try these simple tests for a taste of how naturopathy can help.
 
  • If you suffer from water retention, switch from iodized salt to natural rock salt for just two weeks and see the difference.
  • If you suffer from acidity, remove all dairy products from your diet. Have a shot of the juice of two lemons after every cooked meal.Try this for a week and see the miraculous results.
  • Suffer from headaches?, drink up to three litres of water slowly but continuously till the headache goes.
    Dehydration is often the cause of headaches.
 
"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".
