Concentration & Focus
A lack of concentration usually arises from not having the bandwidth (physical/mental) to pay attention to a task for a long period of time.
What causes lack of concentration/focus?
A lack of concentration could result from many different factors: chronic fatigue, wrong foods (over consumption of sugar), bad yeast overgrowth (candida), insomnia, ADHD (as kids), the start of dementia in adults and so on.
How does Shonali help?
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’s goal is to remove food triggers and help you make the neurotransmitters of the brain fire with foods that you eat so that the brain starts re-wiring itself to function better.
