"I empower women to heal their bodies naturally using food as medicine"
Hi, I'm Pratima Nagaraj
Holistic Health & Functional Nutrition Coach
This is my Story
I am thrilled you are on this page which means we share similar interests – to be healthy & happy from the inside out!
Trained in functional medicine, nutrition, holistic wellness, and several energy healing modalities, I take a balanced and holistic approach to health & wellness so that I can help my clients achieve that balance in mind & body that they are looking for.
“Instead of worrying about what’s not in your control, shift your focus to what you CAN control and change”
There are several circumstances in life and in our external environment that is not in our control. We simply have to let go, accept, and receive whatever comes in full gratitude. But there are certain things that are actually in our control and one of them is our BODY. Yes! Our HEALTH is totally in our control and I believe in making conscious choices every day that ensures I am in full control of my health to the best extent possible.
I don’t believe in doing fad diets, restrictions, and rigid lifestyles that make you feel guilty for not following them. I’ve been there done that and felt terrible and awful for not having seen long term results. It just gave me another reason to make myself wrong.
Instead, I am an advocate of eating clean, nutritious food and incorporating a healthy lifestyle that can be maintained life-long giving consistent results (hey, that’s why it is called a ‘life’ style you see!) and feeling energetic, happy, vibrant and alive!
“I believe in using real food as medicine to heal the body and promote health and wellness in the most natural way possible”
I’ve had a life long passion for understanding the human body, food, and nutrition. But I was not health-conscious from the very beginning. If you are struggling with health issues or trying hard to be fit and healthy without much success, I get it! I’ve been where you are.
When I quit my successful corporate career and moved countries to set up my own business, my health & wellness took a back seat as I focussed on building and nurturing my business. We all do that, don’t we? Ignore ourselves in pursuit of our goals and dreams.
Until one day when I realized my body was screaming for help. I was struggling with hormonal imbalance, energy slumps, bloating/SIBO, digestive issues, hypothyroidism, migraines, and what not!
So I put myself on priority, found amazing health coaches who could show me the way towards health & wellness. There began my own journey of exploring food and nutrition deeper and my genuine love for guiding others on their own wellness journey.
Instead of making you eliminate your favorite foods, I believe in going that extra mile to give you sustainable, healthy replacements and solutions customized to your taste so that the food you eat is still orgasmic to you, tingles your tastebuds and makes you want to eat more.
“Holistic Wellness encompasses a healthy body, sound mind and a tranquil spirit”
I love C R E A T I O N – in all forms!! Whether it’s creating a new dish, a new piece of art, a relationship, money, or something as big as a global six-figure business. Creation is fun for me and it gets all my molecules buzzing, fills me with total enthusiasm, and gives me the space to be ME! I am grateful that I’ve been able to create a lifestyle and a business where I can travel the world, work from exotic locations, have total location independence and grow my business while I contribute to changing people’s lives and helping them get healthy and fit in all ways!
One thing I love about my business is that it gives me the opportunity to work with amazing, beautiful, and talented people from all around the globe. I continue to evolve physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as I work with each client every day. Every workshop that I teach and every single coaching session brings an immense amount of learning into my life personally. I am grateful that I get to contribute to changing people’s health & mindset while I discover myself and become more of me.
Mind, body, nutrition, health, wellness, creating a business, entrepreneurship – they are all my passions and close to my heart. When am not doing any of these, I love spending time with myself – I love my quiet space. I spend most of my creative time writing, reading, painting, playing with charcoal drawings, doodling, doing yoga, belly dancing, or learning new languages. I am also an outdoorsy person. I absolutely love traveling! Traveled to over 150+ cities in the past decade and it fills me with joy and I get to access more of myself through travels. All of these give me the creative boost which seeps into my work seamlessly! Every little thing you do to express your creative energy contributes to your life and your business in unimaginable ways.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope to see you in person someday!
