“It’s not only the medicine, but the right mindset and diet…”

success story

It’s not only the medicine, but the right mindset and diet that plays a major role to cure any type of disease in the world” – says Sejal who is currently braving MND (moto neuron disease) through the power of Lifestyle.

Diwali couldn’t get better as I wake up to this beautiful gift. This is the power of lifestyle, belief , food, immunity and visualisation. We need medicine but not medicine alone. Medicine with lifestyle changes, belief and faith works miracles.
She’s on the path to recovery and shares this with me so I could in turn share it here to inspire others, we need medicine but not medicine alone , medicine with lifestyle changes and belief and faith. Please send her some love and prayers. She has promised to walk-in to see me soon and we shall then go out for coffee.

“I am Sejal R Zaveri, age 45 years, residing in Mumbai. I was diagnosed of MND (Motor Neuron Disease) 4 years ago.It’s a progressive disease, in which your muscles become weak. My cervical and lumbar muscles got affected. Due to this, my hands and legs became weak. After being diagnosed with MND I immediately started Homeopathy treatment. I continued with Homeopathy for 3 and half years, but unfortunately it didn’t work on me and my health condition deteriorated. I could hardly walk and there was lots of stiffness in my legs n hands. I started getting Anxiety attacks and was unable to sleep the whole night. I lost a lot of weight and was under major depression.
Immediately I started with Allopathy treatment and my sister booked an appointment with Dr Luke Coutinho.

And that was the turning point of my Life. He advised me to do antibody blood test. This test is for auto immune disease. He was the 1st person to advise me this test. My antibody blood count was very high, and he said this is because my gut is functioning very poor. He immediately told me to stop sugar, wheat and milk products for life time. He gave me a diet plan and his lovely voice advice and positive talks changed my mindset completely….I took his 3 months diet program, which was under Luke and his Head Nutritionist Dr.Sneha Shah. Simultaneously I also underwent STEMCELL THERAPY and I have been doing Neuro Physio regularly.”

When I started the diet plan my Haemoglobin was low, but it became normal after following their diet, without taking any medicine. I had borderline sugar also. Following their diet plan seriously, my sugar level became normal.

Luke advised me to do a lots of meditation which helped me to reduce my Anxiety attacks and my sleep. I have become more positive and energetic.Special Thanks to Dr.Sneha Shah, who was always approachable giving me the right advice and guidance.
In the end I would like to say one thing that it’s not only the medicine, but the right mindset and diet plays the major role to cure any type of disease in the world. At present I cannot walk without support but Luke had advised me to do visualisation that is to visualise what u want to do in future. By doing that I know I will walk independently one day and will become independent also.
Once again special to thanks to Luke and Dr.Sneha and his team….Love you all for making me a better person.
