Hi, and Thank you for making your way to my blog!My name is Varsha Indurjith and I am just another average person – an employee, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a consumer. I get an idea, follow up on it, learn something new, and share it with the world! I am a full-time IT Developer in the corporate space, and a Natural/Alternative Holistic Therapist to my husband and kids after hours. My techniques include SCIO Biofeedback, Acupressure/Reflexology, 3LT Laser Acupuncture, Emotional Freedom Technique, and Applied Kinesiology, all supplemented with my knowledge of natural health options.What began initially as a simple desire to help others, has grown into a passion for empowering people to take back control of their health. My desire has evolved over the years to not only help people, but to give people the ability to help themselves. The maxim ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’ is the concept behind this Blog.
We cannot enjoy good health unless we first address our eating habits and lifestyle. Unfortunately it can be quite daunting trying to keep as healthy a food regime as possible in a world dominated by false advertising, false claims, stereotypes and greed instead of ethical and moral responsibility. However I am a firm believer of “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”, and I am also a ferocious optimist (most of the time), so I’ve pretty much managed to carve out a path for my family and I that works for us.I am continually looking for cost-effective ways that facilitate a healthful lifestyle, wholesome as possible, conducive to growing well balanced, all rounded kids and improving our own health as adults.
My corporate full-time job takes up most of my time, but through it I’ve managed to incorporate simple, effective tricks that has kept us out of the doctors’ rooms since 2011.However it’s not much fun when I am happy and smiling, but my friends and family are not – and so a blog was born! This is where you get to see all the simple, seriously cost-effective ways that I’ve been using to keep my kids healthy, hubby away from hospital (he loves chillies a bit too much), and myself juggling my career, my family, and my wildly-increasing passions.I am a crappy cook by my own standards (don’t you just love perfectionists), but I learn and grow every day, and am sharing what works for me and my family with you, in the hope that you too, in whatever stage of your life or circumstance you are in, can benefit in some way from this.I had put my faith in the medical and pharmaceutical systems until I ended up with ailments I had never had before, and battled for years to overcome.
The illusion was shattered when I realized that my baby and toddler combined had been on more antibiotics than myself.I had blindly trusted the food industry and spent thousands of rands every month on groceries I thought were ‘healthy’. I had assumed the Baby Industry with all their foods, cosmetics and baby-care products were safe for my babies – why wouldn’t baby products be safe for babies ?? I went into debt buying so-called ‘nutritious’ foods and ‘safe’ products for my kids for years, thinking that this was the best I could do as a mum.
What started off as a gradual decline of faith over the years, ended up in a catastrophic, instantaneous divorce from all these sectors when I finally learnt about GMOs and their links to the Medical, Pharmaceutical and Food industries!My eyes were now fully opened and I took matters into my own hands and have not looked back since! My aim is for each person to take charge of their own health in whatever capacity they can, as cost-effectively as possible. Knowledge is Power, and Sharing is Caring, so here is me walking the talk and showing you how!
