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 well-prepared and very knowledgeable in her field. She is direct and straightforward. She presented information in a clear and concise manner that was really easy to understand. As associated health issues arose, she made every effort to put me in touch with alternative health professionals to support my healing process.
I had been to many nutritionists at this point; however Sejal presented me with a holistic overview of health, wellness and nutrition that empowered me to take my health into my own hands and make positive choices in my life.
I will always be very grateful to Sejal for the focus, wisdom, intelligence and love she brings to her work."
