“Your are only as HAPPY as your BODY is. REGAIN HOPE and HEALTH. I can HELP you.”
Hi! My name is Deepa and I’m here to help you regain your hope, healthand balance through nutrition and support!
We may be connected by soul, but our bodies behave differently!
I know that I found no resolution to my health challenges in spite of trying so many things. Why was the best of the best unable to resolve things? Why were my labs within range most of the time, but I was still not “functional”? Even if you and I have the same condition, our approach to balance might not be the same. Your history and triggers are so different to my history and my triggers. Your digestion is unique to you. Your immune capability is different to mine. The toxins to which you are exposed are different to what I am exposed to. What is inflammatory to you is unique. The deficiencies to which you are prone to are different to what I may be susceptible to. How your body produces energy is unique to you. Your ability to breakdown and detoxify toxins is unique to you. Your hormones and how they work in tandem is unique to you, and how they do not work in balance and impact you is also unique to you. Has there been impact to your body structurally which impact you in a unique way? How well you sleep is unique to you? All of this has contributed to how “functional” you are today, at this moment. Functional Nutrition understand this “bio-individuality”. There is no one size fits all.

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!
Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:
💮Low iron or B12 within few months
💜Frequent fevers and coughs
☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours
💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm
Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.
Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:
💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.
💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.
💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.
💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!
Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly.
