“Those who have no time for nutrition and exercise had better reserve a lot of time for disease.”
How can a nutritionist help me?
Sheeba Majmudar can assist in a variety of health issues like weight loss, eczema, IBS, food allergies, constipation, low immunity, fatigue, fatty liver, insomnia, hormonal issues, optimal health, sports training, detoxification programs, healthy cooking and shopping, etc. There is a lot of misinformation on the net, so professional advice can not only save you money, but at times it can be critical to prevent complications.
What does the process involve if I decide to see Sheeba?
Firstly, please either email her or sms her to fix an appointment. Normally you would need to get any recent (3-4 months old) blood test results along with you for the consult. If you don’t have one, you may need to get one done, please enquire about this with her. During the consult, the person’s blood test is analyzed using functional chemistry, then based on the client’s medical history, goals, lifestyle limitations, a diet, supplement and lifestyle recommendations are customized for the individual. A follow up may be necessary within a month’s time.
Do I need to get tests done to achieve my goals?
In order to determine core issues, an assessment or blood test can help determine what nutrients are missing and what is in excess (toxins), which can help customize a plan as opposed to a general consultation based purely on medical history. If you have health challenges, a blood test can be used as a comparison tool if you are using nutrition to create improvements, and help reduce medication as determined by a doctor.
Do I have to buy all the supplements from you?
Sheeba does not think it is ethically correct to sell a particular brand all brands have different strengths and weaknesses with regard to herbs, vitamins or food supplements. She recommends what supplements to buy and where. In case you are using a particular supplement, she can advice you on its quality.
How do I know the program is working?
The client becomes an active partner in the journey towards optimum wellness. The end result will depend upon the amount of commitment you have put into the program and when you start feeling good, you start looking good! But getting another blood test or assessment done can reveal undeniable results.
Does that mean I need to turn into an herbivore and eat mainly fruits and vegetables?
A complete nutrition program will never keep you hungry, and will actually increase, not decrease your food choices. It will make you more aware of the amazing variety of healthy foods you can eat so you have more options at the end of the day.
What happens when I’m travelling?
Your program will be tailored to your lifestyle
Do I get a detailed menu plan or chart to follow?
Sheeba does not follow the traditional nutritionist format of handing out daily menu plans and recipes. She will provide from a broader list – her intention is to teach her clients to learn to fish for themselves rather than just provide the fish and spoon feed the person. So if you are not ready for that, then a traditional health coach may be more suited to your needs.
