Hey there! This is Dr. Nirmala and I want to share my wellness journey with you.

I've been overweight right from the age of 3 and this one fact has affected my whole life as I grew up. Bullying and body shaming was so regular that it began to affect my confidence. I started of with being a cute and chubby little child and grew up to become morbidly obese.

Whenever I had to visit a doctor, they would get distracted by my weight and no matter what problem I actually went with, it finally end up with a lecture on eating right and exercising. In my late 30s, I started developing high BP (hypertension) and in my early 40s I would struggle to walk because of swelling in my feet and the whole body. I was in pain most of the time. That's when doctors told me to go in for the gastric sleeve surgery which helps with drastic weight reduction. Surgery was something I really wasn't prepared for. Though I did think about it very seriously. I was also started on injections to help me lose weight. Even then I lost only 3 kgs.

Apart from this my cholesterol levels had been high right from the time I was in my 20s and at the time I was also pre-diabetic.

Let me also emphasize that right from the age of 10, my parents have been so careful about what they were feeding me. I was never given the opportunity to indulge in junk food or sweets. Naturally my weight issues were of immense concern to them.

From the time I remember, I have always exercised…. whether Jane Fonda's aerobics, gymming or yoga. I was always trying out some diet or the other. With all of that I was still 'the fatty'.

Sometime in 2018 at the age of 44, I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. Which meant that while sleeping, I would have sudden episodes where I stopped breathing and the oxygen would be cut off. This was accompanied by very loud snoring. The pulmonologist asked me to use a C-pap machine to help me breathe better at night.

My health became a cause of concern for everyone who loved me. My husband was always worried about me walking alone because there were times I would lose my balance and fall. Seeing me having to use a machine to breathe at night left him feeling helpless as well.

A few years prior to this, while doing a course on diabetes, there was a brief mention about the role of insulin in obesity. I remembered this and decided to start reading up and educating myself about it. With this started my "wellness journey".

Today I am 30kgs lighter and off diabetes medication. My BP meds have been reduced and I no longer need the C-pap machine at night. I am energetic and don't have unexplainable pain.

What I realised is that even medical school doesn't teach us about insulin resistance and very often doctors themselves have no idea on how to guide their patients with nutrition.

I decided that if I need to be able to help people, then I need to be formally qualified. Hence, I did a certification course from the American Nutrition Association.

Today it is my passion to educate and guide people who have insulin resistance related problems like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high (bad) cholesterol, auto-immune disorders, non-alcoholic fatty liver and other related health issues.

I work very closely with my clients and have a hands-on approach. I customize the food style (I don't call it a "diet") based on each person's clinical condition and also their personal preferences.
