Holistic Approach to Women's Health
Our approach to fertility, family-building, and holistic health.
1. LIFESTYLE COACHING
Hello, congratulations on choosing to work towards a healthier “you” and welcome to our lifestyle program.
Quite often nowadays we see many medical problems, the root cause of which can be addressed only with your cooperation and effort.
Just by prescribing medicines, may treat just the complaints you have, without correcting the root cause.
The pressure to have a baby in our society places a lot of expectations on the couple.
Infertility, miscarriages, high-risk pregnancies are all on the rise compared to the previous generation.
Let us join hands to gain knowledge, work together and change what we can in our daily lives, to help us have the best possible reproductive outcomes.
We just want you to keep an open mind and be ready to unlearn a few age-old practices and habits, to make a switch over to what is relevant in today’s world!.
Let's get started……..
We want you to first answer questions asked by your coach about EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING to do with your current lifestyle.
This is step one in assessing where change may be needed.
Though it may feel intrusive at times, rest assured that we will keep this completely confidential and it is absolutely necessary.
There is no “one size fits all” approach here and personalized tailor-made recommendations are what will deliver the best outcomes.
Next will be one of the least favourite parts, taking all relevant measurements.
But….remember facing and coming to terms with what we don't like, means we are already past the hardest part, taking the first step to change it!!!
Keeping a food, sleep and exercise journal takes a little bit of effort for sure in our busy lives.
But at the same time, it is what will help us in assessing whether we are able to stay on track most of the time at least!
Look upon it as a valuable self-assessment and motivation tool
This is where we give generalized advice which is for every one of us and will benefit us by reducing our exposure to the toxic soup of chemicals we are surrounded by in modern life.
We can try and change what we can, and what is practical, one step at a time.
I personally hate the word “dieting” as it somehow seems to signify something temporary and restrictive.
Rather, following lifelong healthy eating habits are what we need to implement for sustainable results.
So let's look at how we can plan our everyday menus in a better manner, to eat food which nourishes our body and mind.
This is the second-best medicine needed, after eating right and should be part of our daily routine.
The commonest excuse is given, “I have no time” should change to “I will make time”.
We can recommend general guidelines, provide resources and help you get started depending on your current fitness levels.
Let's face it, we all may start with the best intentions but where we falter is continuing to do something day in and day out without any support or monitoring.
Let us serve as your habit tracker. Our team will remain in daily contact with you over WhatsApp messaging to make sure you are on the right track and to tweak or change what you feel is not agreeing with you.

Where required, we can arrange consults with specialists in specific areas like sleep therapy, psychological counseling, sexual counseling, general medicine, diabetology, cardiology, etc. depending on problems identified or areas where we need to go deeper.
2. SEXUAL HEALTH
Sex still remains a taboo in most places in our country with the result that most women and even men have no knowledge whatsoever about what needs to happen in the bedroom to have a pleasurable experience for both partners.
Whatever little is known is from stories narrated from friend's experiences or by seeing porn which is hardly realistic.
Sex is often looked at as just a means to get pregnant and then sidelined or seen as something to be tolerated rarely in many marriages.
In today's highly busy urban lifestyle, there is a lack of time as well as inclination to have sex and problems like lack of interest in both partners, pain during sex, difficulty in getting an erection or sustaining one, etc are seen very commonly.
A sexual therapist or sexologist can be of great help in addressing your concerns and helping you overcome them as well as give you resources to educate yourselves about this seldom discussed topic.
3. PELVIC PHYSIOTHERAPY & MOVEMENT TRAINING
A lot of common problems women face like chronic back pain, knee joint pain, pelvic floor muscle weakness, diastasis recti, lack of core strength, etc need the help of a physiotherapist to assess the cause and suggest strengthening exercises as well as corrective measures.
There is no point in giving just painkillers for chronic pain without treating the cause.
Our team of experienced lady physiotherapists will be able to examine you and guide you towards the path of leading a pain-free better quality of life.
4. YOGA FOR HORMONAL HEALTH
A lot of problems faced by women are due to hormonal dysfunction meaning that the delicate balance of hormones needed to keep our systems functioning smoothly is thrown out of sync.
Yoga is an invaluable addition to your regular lifestyle which helps in correcting this imbalance to a large extent along with other lifestyle measures.
Our well-experienced yoginis will be able to guide you on this path suggesting specific asanas which will be beneficial in your case along with regular yoga practice and breathing exercises.
5. STRESS REDUCTION
In today's day and age, stress is a ubiquitous part of everyone's life in one form or the other. It is good that issues related to mental health are also being brought to the forefront and given importance.
Stress can also lead to many physical problems like acidity, bloating, indigestion, lack of sleep, headaches, etc.
Counselling with our experienced psychologists will definitely help in relieving your stress levels by having a let out for pent-up emotions as well as by giving you techniques to help reduce your response to stress.
6. STRENGTH TRAINING
Strength or resistance training is a form of exercise which conditions different groups of muscles by making them work against resistance.
There is a total lack of knowledge about the importance of strength training in women's health.
This is the best practice for you to become stronger, fitter, lose fat and gain lean muscle.
And NO, it will not make you muscular!!
Women tend to lose bone density as we age and this is an important tool which will help reduce this loss.
Learn about how to incorporate strength training in your regular exercise routine in this session.
Our senior trainer will examine you, assess your current fitness levels and then suggest exercise which can be easily practiced at home
