Success story 1:
Success story of my first achiever is Mrs. Snehal Gaikwad a homemaker. When she approached me she had very severe acidity, was Obese and was medicated for High blood pressure. She followed my diet plan with patience and sincerity. Also was a regular member of my Yoga Class. Within 6 months she reduced about 12 kg. Her Physician discontinued her Blood Pressure tablet and Yoga became her Life Style as she gave her first level Yoga exam. Her stress level has reduced and last 2 years she has maintained herself.
My analysis and observations for her SUCCESS STORY: Her Determination, self-motivation, regularity, sincerity, consistency, patience, regular timely follow up & faith in Dietitian & yoga teacher were the key points for achieving weight loss.

My weight was 68 kg which was more as per my height.My acidity problem was so severe, that I found difficulty in breathing. I had to vomit after every meal my condition become worse.

I am strong believer that diet is not about changing the quantity of food but is about changing of lifestyle. I have observed that when diet is accompanied with yoga sessions including different yogic techniques, the result achieved are better & long lasting. The combination of yoga & diet helps in hormone balance resulting in Normalizing Thyroid levels, Blood pressure, and monthly periods.
- Also when you start weight loss begin with SIMPLE DIET CHANGES.
- My diet counselling involves prescribing diet modification to suit their lifestyle & family eating pattern.
- Remove the myth that diet food is always Bland and boring. I believe healthy food can be very tasty and nutritive. Cooking being my passion I suggest my patients and members recipes of tasty healthy food.
- Lastly but most important point I have observed that practicing Yoga Therapy helps in calming their mind, resulting in maintaining emotional balance. After which members accept diet changes with a positive note & develop patience, regularity, discipline which form the foundation of success stories of health.
- Different Yoga techniques and good Diet can reduce Thyroid level, Blood pressure, blood sugar level, Periods irregularity.
