Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints causing pain and if it gets worse causes damage as well. RA has no real cure except management of the disease; unless you consider alternative method’s, which have worked like combining diet and Ayurveda which Shonali does. While on a rheumatoid arthritis diet, she has used the two modalities and achieved 100% remission of this ailment. Yes flare-ups may happen when the weather gets cold, or stress is not controlled and eating habits go haywire. But using the Macrobiotic principles of diet, Shonali sets you up not to fail and control the inflammation completely.

How does Shonali help?

On a rheumatoid arthritis diet, Shonali’s approach relies on the tenets of Macrobiotic philosophy: using the oriental system of ‘facial diagnosis,’ and touch meridian diagnosis (if needed) to analyze the strength and health of your organs. Her framework (like Ayurveda) relies on using the foundation of analyzing your constitution (that which you were born with: blueprint from your parents) and condition (that which you have created growing up). Macrobiotic philosophy uses the ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ elements of ‘energy’ or ‘prana’ to help her diagnose everything you are or do. This is her training and USP and how she actually zeroes in on your diagnosis and further prognosis.

She uses the food tools and the principles of the Macrobiotic approach to aim at: strengthening your gut, detoxify you of all the accumulated toxins (‘ama’ in Ayurveda plus any accumulation of bad gut bacteria causing ‘dysbiosis’ i.e., when bad bacteria outweigh the beneficial ones) and balance the body’s pH. Her approach is to make you identify the toxins you are consuming from foods, the environment and your lifestyle; and get rid of them. Plus bring in food-elements to clean up your gut to help you detoxify. She then layers this with the use of holistic natural everyday foods; using her knowledge of balancing the ‘foods’ and ‘cooking styles’ used to give you the required strength to overcome your ailment and encourage balance.

Shonali is based in Mumbai, but is practicing online in over 20 countries. She is the only one who works with you, and there are no assistants or other nutritionists between you and her. She conducts her own follow ups and meetings personally; as she believes turning your health condition around is a ‘personal’ business; and only she has been trained to diagnose your condition and monitor the progress one-on-one. The macrobiotic approach is integrative, alternative and comes under the branch of lifestyle medicine, using foods as medicine to reverse and cure your health ailment/disease.

“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I knew my erratic lifestyle with sleeping late and travelling did not allow me to keep healthy. I already had a thyroid condition, but being diagnosed with RA left me shocked. I first tried homeopathy, but it did not show much result, I then went on to Ayurveda at a 7- star place; however that too did not show any results. Finally when I met Shonali, she started me on her diet and tried to establish regular lifestyle habits. She did not allow me to travel for a whole year, and also got me to meet the doctor she works with – combining Ayurveda and her diet. In 8 months my doctors declared that I had been mis-diagnosed, and I was one step away from a lethal drug called methotrexate, can you believe this story? I hope this testimonial inspires you to approach Shonali for any ailment you may have. She I the only answer to handling such difficult diseases with her approach.”
