Thus Spoke The World About Us!
“I like Deepa’s approach of slowly building your body so that it can endure these protocol. Some places I know just throw you into these protocols and that really does not help. I discovered and understood how I am built. What I love most is Deepa! I think she is fantastic in the way she connects .She is more than a practitioner . I believe she genuinely cares about your health just as much as you do. Deepa opened my eyes to a lot of new things. First being my body is not broken. I was just comparing it to others .I realised we are all built different and need to discover who we are and respect that . There could be no one better than Deepa to guide me on this journey . I am thankful to her for her knowledge , her compassion and her skilful ways on pushing me towards my health goals.”
"Deepa’s solutions were well thought through. The expectation was that she would have a decent understanding of the subject as well as the functioning of the human body. This proved to be an understatement as Deepa has an extraordinary understanding of human physiology."
“Joining OHA was an important decision for me and my husband. It helped me become more aware of our body/body type and the ways to help it calm down and also help it work better. I enjoyed my chat sessions with Deepa and her very useful tips and suggestions to live a healthier life. I have been frustrated with some of the restrictions she suggests, but then realised that just the awareness of what causes harm to the body, empowers us to take better health decisions. Overall, i feel empowered after the program.”
"I signed up with Deepa after a close friend had experienced outstanding results with a very chronic problem. Since I had been neglecting my chronic issues for at least a decade, I decided to give it a try. About a month into our sessions, I had a number of major health issues including hospitalisation with Dengue and an infection that felt suspiciously like COVID. Deepa was a lifeline during this difficult year.”
"The program helped me understand my body a lot better and would recommend it to anyone looking to lead a healthy life.”
“Deepa of OHA is a functional nutritionist, Ayurveda practitioner, Yoga Acharya, counsellor, Beauty expert and chef rolled in one. Her passion for the work she does is palpable and infectious. She takes deep interest in each case and analysis their Prakriti in detail . She shows her client how each person is different has to be given a bio individual treatment to address their issues . She has an intuitive sense of what would work for a person but she always backs it with cutting edge knowledge so that one understands the logic behind the way our body reacts to food, exercise and psychological factors. The best thing about her style of working is that she does not want her client to become dependant on her. She empowers them by making them observe what happens in the body when we put a certain foods in it, change the sleep pattern, increase or decrease a certain activity. It is all very scientific and may seem overwhelming to some. But she is always there to answer all questions and doubts that may occur in a person’s mind. I am grateful for having crossed her paths with her at a very crucial juncture in my life. I would suggest people to gain an understanding of their body sooner rather than later. Thank you for shining the light on my path Deepa."
