I have always had an interest in health promotion and disease prevention and early on became aware of the strengths and limitations of Western Medicine. When I discovered that in addition to Yoga, Simmi was also a Master Herbalist, a Nutritional Therapist and a practitioner of Ayurvedic Medicine I was curious to find out more. I consulted with Simmi regarding a few minor health issues and discovered so much more… She introduced me to my particular “Vikriti” or disease tendency based on my “Nature” when out of balance. She suggested various herbs, spices, foods, beverages, aromatic oils and lifestyle habits that could be implemented to find better balance and support my Nature at its best. It was fascinating and extremely helpful! She also integrated the most effective yoga postures, meditations and chants for my Nature.
Over the years I have incorporated many of Simmi’s suggestions and I find myself in much better balance much more of the time. I continue to consult with Simmi to tweak suggested strategies, herbal and nutritional supplements. She truly is a treasure chest of knowledge, experience and practical applications that work with body, mind and spirit. I really appreciate Simmi’s warm, professional manner and her holistic functional/ integrative approach. I consider her to be a key healer in my health journey!
