MSc Nutrition, Kings College (London)
I am a Naturopathic physician determined to simplify sustainable eating for you. My approach is a unique blend of modern nutrition, ancient wisdom and practical day-to-day habits.
I believe in making a big impact with small dietary and lifestyle changes. My aim is to build a regimen through gradual lifestyle modification, and leave my clients with lifelong results.
I come from a family rooted in Ayurveda since the 1800s. We have been growing certified organic Indian medicinal herbs and manufacturing Ayurvedic medicines for the last 25 years. Our private collection spans over 700 native medicinal plants, many of which are nearing extinction in the wild.
I have worked in both conventional and anti-diet nutrition set ups, making my system truly flexible and sustainable for clients in the long run. I have formulated my own unique nutrition protocol and worked with 200+ clients this way.
The herbeshwari approach
I DO NOT MAKE DIET PLANS! I stopped making them when I realised they don't equip my clients with the skills to stay healthy in the long run.
My programme is based on behavioural and dietary modification based on cues provided by you. I teach my clients to reach optimum health by modifying timings, adding certain foods, and most importantly, learning how to eat intuitively and mindfully.
There are no forbidden foods, and no fixed portions. You learn how to eat depending on your body type, season and mood. I will facilitate your learning, and teach you how to eat in order to stay healthy while enjoying every single meal.
My programme is unique from person to person, I work with clients on a one-to-one basis with an exclusively patient-customised approach
Typically, clients work with me for 3-4 months and are able to manage on their own after that. My intent is to set up a lifestyle that is so easy and sustainable that you do not need me or any other nutritionist ever again
My primary aim is self-sustained healthy eating lifelong. After working together most clients do not come back to me or visit another nutritionist again because their results are maintained
You should always check before working with someone

Charges vary case to case depending on medical condition and I can estimate the fees after our first consultation
You may have come through a referall who was charged differently which is why I would like to emphasise it here for clarity.
I revise my charges every few months. I do not revise the fees as long as you are actively working with me, but if you take a few months to confirm or take a break mid-way and wish to re-join, you will have to pay the revised fee.
NOTE: The wait time between this call and starting ranges between 3-7 weeks
