Hi, I’m Anushree! I am currently training to be an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor, am a certified Yoga instructor, Reiki Practitioner, Dance Fitness instructor and an engineer by training.

With nuclear families on the rise, age-old wisdom passed on from generation to generation by word of mouth has become virtually non-existent. In the good old days, we had wise grandmothers hovering around us to tell us what home remedies are best for our day-to-day ailments, to guide us about what the best foods are for a particular climate/season etc. But now, it has become common practice to pop a pill for every small ailment ranging from the common cold to indigestion and stomach ache. Our lifestyles are ridden with stress and unable to manage it via a good diet and healthful lifestyle practices, we are becoming a generation prone to diabetes, high cholesterol, high BP and other such lifestyle-related diseases at ridiculously young ages.

As I see it, a good first step to start changing the situation is awareness. I left India to go to the US for my Masters in Computer Science, at the age of 20 years. I quickly fell into the trap of fast foods, irregular diet and sleep routines and not to forget, the most important one, stress! Even though I didn’t fall sick (since I had age on my side), I found that I had a general feeling of ill-ease. I didn’t feel quite “alright”. Health after all, is not just about physical well-being. Mental well-being is an important part of good health. In fact, most diseases start from the mind. Then later on, when I had kids, this lack of awareness only made things worse for me. When my kids were afflicted with small ailments like colds, coughs, allergies, fevers, infections and the like, I was at a loss regarding what I should do to help them. Almost always, I turned to Western medicine, which although gave symptomatic relief, never really addressed the core problem or root cause. I do think allopathic/Western medicine is of great value and I do use it for myself and my family even today, but for cases where immediate relief is needed. I turn to Ayurveda for treating the root cause of illness and ailments and also as a preventative measure for disease in general.

When I started learning more about Ayurveda, Yoga and Pranayama, I found that by gradually incorporating small practices from these into my daily life, I was moving my mental and physical health in the right direction. I am now better equipped with knowledge to help steer my family’s health in the right direction too.This site is my small effort to try and make Ayurveda and an Ayurvedic lifestyle simple to understand and relevant to our times.

The main goal here is to prevent sickness and promote wellness through tried and tested methods which are relevant even today. This is more complementary to western medication than a replacement. Please read our terms of use.

    Hi Anushree, I like your blog. I find it quite helpful. Do you have a recipe of ‘massage oil” that I can use for joint pain. I live in US. If you could suggest a mixture of oils; I could try to make it at home.
    I made the hair oil that you have suggested and I like it a very much.
    Thanks for your help
