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.
 
"Sejal is a pioneer in a field that needs to make a resurgence - natural health. She has a wealth of invaluable knowledge that seems to have been lost by western medical practitioners, about how the body really works, why it responds as it does to our lifestyles and behaviours, and how to resolve seemingly intractable health problems through a holistic approach.
After you do a session with Sejal, you'll wish you met her ten years earlier -- her solutions are intuitive and effective."
