I am a nutritionist based in Goregaon, Mumbai and I write interesting articles on health. I am also associated with Gokuldham High School located in Goregaon, Mumbai, for health letters. I write articles purely on motivational intent.



The first principle behind wellness through food is to eat nature. That may sound simple but walk into an ordinary grocery store and you will be hard-pressed to find real, natural food – i.e., food that is grown by the forces of sun, soil, wind and water. So, start by eating nature’s produce, as fresh and as close to the source as possible so that it retains its living intelligence and energy, what we call Prana or life force.


Look to “eat nature” then, as close to its source as possible. When you eat food that is locally grown, you benefit from the intelligence in nature that sustains seasonal balance.

The third principle, and an important general rule, is to maintain a strong digestive fire. If you feel heavy, lethargic, dull-minded, or experience mood swings, then you may have a low-burning fire that has resulted in a toxic build-up that in turn is making your whole system sluggish.

To strengthen your digestive fire, try fasting to clear any cloggy, sticky toxins. You can simply skip dinner one night weekly, or stick to a liquid diet for a few days. Sipping warm vegetable soups and broths for your three meals not only detoxifies but also fans the abdominal flames.

Drinking lemon and ginger tea throughout the day, and always with your meal, will increase the digestive fire. Also add ginger to your food when cooking. Try to eat fresh, home-cooked meals as much as possible.
