Easing Dis-ease

The word DIS-EASE itself means that the body is not at ease. Over the generations, we are made to believe that diseases are a normal aspect of ageing and that we have to live with it. Thanks to the “A pill for every ill” notion, we do not think of a disease as a message from the body trying to tell us that something is not in sync with its natural laws. Instead, we fear it and look for treatments outside us rather than turning inwards and connecting with ourselves to gauge what in our food and lifestyle is a miss. Think of it, our body can heal a broken bone by itself without any medications and interventions from our end, so it can definitely heal any disease or health issue once we provide it with all the right things it needs.

DIABETES - SWEETEN UP!

DIABETES - SWEETEN UP!

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent illness plaguing our world today with at least one member in every house battling with it.

Type 1 diabetes: occurs due to an injury to your pancreas due to food poisoning, viral or bacterial infection, toxin or a physical blow to the gland and not due to our own cells attacking the pancreas. This can manifest in young age as juvenile diabetes but can also happen at a later stage in life, with the correct food and lifestyle regime one can reduce the intensity of the pancreatic damage and improve the quality of life.

Type 2 diabetes: Generally, sugar is seen as an evil and a primary cause of diabetes, but in reality, high blood sugar acts like a messenger to tell us that there is an underlying problem with our liver and pancreas. So, cutting back on carbohydrates is like shunning the messenger away but not really treating the root problem. It all begins with a sluggish and a stagnant liver which fails to help us balance our blood sugar levels further, affecting our pancreatic functioning leading to inadequate insulin production.

Many times, it is also the high levels of bad fat in our blood, making our cells insulin resistant which are then unable to utilise the glucose effectively leaving our blood with high sugar levels. This then leads to all the symptoms associated with diabetes like excessive thirst, hunger, urination, fatigue and if ignored can lead to severe symptoms like nerve, kidney, eye and foot damage, ear impairment and brain issues. Any kind of chronic physical or mental stress can cause excess adrenaline release, which can over time damage the pancreatic cells, affect the liver functions and further make our cells more insulin resistant worsening the existing conditions.

The good news is that type 2 diabetes is absolutely reversible and manageable once we focus on rectifying the liver and pancreatic issues, improve gut health, alter the quality of fat intake and manage stress and activity. We believe that you do not have to live with diabetes and its unpleasant symptoms instead manage it well and thrive with it and this what we handhold you towards!

THYROID

THYROID

As we all know that the thyroid gland is the body’s master gland and besides regulating metabolism it also regulates every cell of the body and good thyroid health is imperative to keep the other organs healthy like brain, heart, kidney, nerve function and development, plus the function of the skin, hair, eyes and intestines. It also acts as the data collection centre from every cell and responds by signalling the body to provide all that is needed by the cells for perfect functioning. Since the thyroid gland manages all this and so much more, taking good care of it in terms of food and daily habits is vital for its seamless functioning.

Our thyroid health can be severely affected by the wrong foods, poor gut health, sluggish liver and a viral load in our system which slowly and steadily damage our thyroid cells leading to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, ashimoto’s disease, goitre, thyroiditis and in severe cases thyroid cancer. In many cases, the dosage of the thyroid pills has been reduced just by edicatedly working towards thyroid healthy by improving the body’s cleansing ability and immunity and nurturing and nourishing the thyroid gland with right kind of herbs and supplements.

HEART HEALTH

HEART HEALTH

Nothing can beat a healthy heart! This super hard-working organ goes on selflessly every second to make sure we are well oxygenated, well-nourished and well-cleansed. But all this can be hindered when we do not put our heart and soul in taking care of our health and abuse the body with all sorts of junk, lack of activity, smoking, alcohol and other stressors. All this increases the toxicity and pastiness of the blood and inflammation, which narrows the arteries causing high blood pressure. Inflammation also increases blood cholesterol levels which is essential for cell repair, but if inflammation is not controlled through natural means, the excess cholesterol can settle in the arteries forming a plaque holding other substances.

The problem is not the high cholesterol or the high blood pressure; it is the underlying toxicity and inflammation which needs to be tackled. Taking a pill and suppressing these symptoms is like a Band-Aid which masks the problem but does not cure it from the root. In fact, all these medications come with a host of side effects which further affects the liver and heart health. We believe in working on blood pressure and cholesterol levels naturally to lower them with the help of an anti-inflammatory foods and lifestyle plan, activity and stress management thereby improving heart health.

LIVER LOVE

LIVER LOVE

The most mothering organ in our body which takes care of us endlessly and takes a hit for all the wrong things we expose our body to in our day to day life like chemicals (from food, beauty products, cleaning agents, air fresheners etc.), unwanted medications and steroids, toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, aluminium, copper etc. through food, dental treatments, water, virus and bacteria and stress hormones.

The liver performs more than 500 vital functions including metabolism of fat, carbohydrate and protein, detoxification and purification of the blood, excretion of excess hormones, drugs, cholesterol, bile, enzyme activation, storing excess carbs, vitamins, minerals and many more. No wonder it is one of the most powerful and hard-working organ and it’s poor health is the root of almost every symptom under the sun like acne, brain fog, auto-immune disorder, constipation, gall stones, gout, dark circles, fatigue, sinus, UTI, varicose veins and weight gain etc.

Hence we try to deal with most of the symptoms a person experiences by rectifying a sluggish, fatty and bogged down liver to revive all the normal functions of the body as they are meant to be and strengthen the liver to help you live a life full of zest and vigour! Because after all is life worth living or not? All depends on the liver!

KIDNEY

KIDNEY

The kidneys are essentially a filtration system which filters out the toxins passed on by the liver. The kidneys gather the poisons and move them into the bladder to be excreted out of the system. They can be affected due to over medications, toxic load, viral infections or injury, which can slow down the filtration process, thereby overloading and damaging them. Also, excess intake of protein, especially animal protein, can burden the kidneys, which further slows it down preventing the toxins and the sludge to be excreted from the system which can then manifest as kidney issues such as kidney stones, infections and chronic kidney disease.

We work towards unburdening kidneys by introducing cleansing foods and herbs, balancing the proteins and electrolytes to help the body get rid of the stones and preventing further damage to the kidneys.

CANCER

CANCER

Cancer is not the end of life; it is a renewed chance for you to redirect all your energies in nurturing your body with the tender loving care it requires physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It actually teaches you self-care and self-love, which are a pre-requisite for a healthy body.

Cancer usually thrives in an environment which is acidic, full of toxins and viral load and emotionally stressed. We handhold you in this journey of recovery by supporting you with alkaline and cleansing foods, immunity-boosting herbs, detox techniques, counselling to de-stress and bring back your hope to live as beautifully as you did before.
