One the one hand, Food as Natural Medicine is the ancient use of healing diets with whole foods and plant based nutrition to restore, optimise and maintain health and healing.
On the other, it also looks within and acknowledges the mind body connection: the emotional and mental patterns at the root of your relationship with food, as well as dietary and lifestyle choices.
Using food as natural medicine is a conscious decision to be healthy and heal not just physically but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
It is a lifelong journey of putting into place the foundations of a healthy balanced diet, nurturing lifestyle behaviours and maintaining good health through prevention.
Together, you and I collaborate to nurture the best diet and lifestyle behaviours that work for you, and your constitution and nourish your radiant vitality.
"Working with Satya through healing diets has been really effective for me.
I highly recommend her to anyone seeking to make changes in their life through food and lifestyle.
I feel more energised now when I wake in the mornings, I am much more mindful with my eating habits, seeking less comfort foods, drinking plenty of water and really enjoying mealtimes now.
I have really enjoyed putting into place the refreshing transition diet Satya gave me with nourishing recipes and information for developing an alkaline rich diet for supporting my bones and overall health as well as learning more through Ayurvedic medicine."
“I am not a vegetarian and have never had an interest in being one. As a result of working with Satya, I enjoy a more balanced diet and this experience has highlighted how far the other way I had gone ie very few vegetables.
I have added more fruit/veg to my diet. I have started to stretch the diets of my children with mixed results and that is okay. I have also cut back on fried foods.
I loved working with Satya.
She is a patient and very diligent practitioner, and is really interested in what she does. She walks the talk. She was so good when I was pushing back on some recommendations and provided the evidence to support them. She willingly listened and was very supportive.
I would highly recommend her work.”
Jeanette Marr, client.
I found my sessions with Satya extremely beneficial as she was able to create a safe and secure space that allowed me to bring a great deal of awareness to my behaviours around food and taking care of myself.
Through a mind mapping exercise I learned that by placing so much of my attention on the needs of others - as a result of a misplaced sense of responsibility - my own needs were rarely met, leaving me emotionally and physically neglected.
The programme that Satya developed for me was thorough and provided me with a suite of practical ways to address both my underlying constitution and associated symptoms. Instituting her suggestions will be a lifelong exercise in giving myself as much love and attention as I give to others.
I am very grateful for her insight and help.
