Typically, the fascination with food is attributed to the richness of cuisines, and diversity with regard to cultures. This discussion, however, brought light to a few other faces of food, those that are equally interesting and far more influential. We pondered over why we eat what we do, and what profound ramifications that has. Is it best to let our dietary patterns remain a cultural inevitability or is it high time we invoke rationality and factuality?
Can the surging wave of smart and sustainable choices – ranging from energy efficiency to green commuting – not be expanded to reach our platter too? This Manthan was with Dr Nandita Shah
Nandita Shah, Dr
Dr. Nandita Shah is the founder of SHARAN with 34 years experience as a homeopath and general physician. As a homeopath she prescribed the minimum medications but now she rarely prescribes at all. She believes each of us can be our own best doctor most of the time.
Dr Shah founded SHARAN in 2005 to guide people on food as the best medicine. She explains how most of the chronic “incurable diseases” that we face today can be prevented and reversed with the correct diet and lifestyle. Dr Shah regularly conducts seminars for reversing diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis and joint complaints as well as a general health seminar called Peas vs Pills. She also organizes and is one of the facilitators of SHARAN’s signature 21 day disease reversal residential program where people can reduce their medications under close supervision with regular testing while enjoying an exceptional learning holiday with other like-minded people.
Being a homeopath, the mind and body connection has always been an integral part of her work. With her work in health and nutrition she has seen many participants make changes that have enabled them to reach their highest potential, not just in their physical health but also in their emotional and spiritual well-being.
