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.
 
I went to Sejal as a last resort! At 36, while there was nothing very major, I had chronic issues which were hampering my day to day functioning. I have a knee, ankle and back problem and hormonal issues. The usual story, tried and failed at everything. The first thing I learnt from Sejal is that the biggest issue is my attitude towards myself and my body.
The second was my approach to food and eating and the third - a very myopic approach to health in general. With her continuous guidance and counselling, I have managed to make a huge shift in my attitude and eating habits and in just a few months, feel much healthier, happier and calmer. My knee has not hurt in 3 months and that is a first after 12 years! Apart from Sejal being an expert in her field, a huge advantage is that she looks at you as a whole entity- body mind and soul - and works with experts in multiple fields to actually identify and heal from the core of the issue.
My recommendation - don't wait to get sick or fed up, make this a way of life, from TODAY!
