Hey there! This is Dr. Nirmala and I want to share my wellness journey with you.
I've been overweight right from the age of 3 and this one fact has affected my whole life as I grew up. Bullying and body shaming was so regular that it began to affect my confidence. I started of with being a cute and chubby little child and grew up to become morbidly obese.
From the time I remember, I have always exercised…. whether Jane Fonda's aerobics, gymming or yoga. I was always trying out some diet or the other. With all of that I was still 'the fatty'.
My health became a cause of concern for everyone who loved me. My husband was always worried about me walking alone because there were times I would lose my balance and fall. Seeing me having to use a machine to breathe at night left him feeling helpless as well.
A few years prior to this, while doing a course on diabetes, there was a brief mention about the role of insulin in obesity. I remembered this and decided to start reading up and educating myself about it. With this started my "wellness journey".
Today I am 30kgs lighter and off diabetes medication. My BP meds have been reduced and I no longer need the C-pap machine at night. I am energetic and don't have unexplainable pain.
Today it is my passion to educate and guide people who have insulin resistance related problems like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high (bad) cholesterol, auto-immune disorders, non-alcoholic fatty liver and other related health issues.
I work very closely with my clients and have a hands-on approach. I customize the food style (I don't call it a "diet") based on each person's clinical condition and also their personal preferences.

Swine flu (or H1N1 influenza) is a type of influenza caused by a virus that is mainly seen in pigs (swine). However the virus has crossed over from pigs to humans (as a zoonotic disease).
I see many people come to my clinic with diarrhoea or vomiting and sometimes both. My advice always has been to tell them that from henceforth always wash hands before eating.
OTC medicines are quite freely available in India and many people find it quite convenient to purchase medicines on an SOS basis. However, is it the wisest thing to do?
Dengue is an infection that spreads from one person to another through mosquito bites.
It is hence seen in areas where mosquito infestation is high.
Why is so much importance given to prevention of HIV/AIDS?
The answer is simple.....it is a disease that can easily be prevented.
Most of us wait for the rains and we love the feel of the water and the weather. However, there are also some infections that are commonly associated with the monsoon.
Heartwarming to finally meet a doctor who showed genuine interest
in understanding my condition. It really has been years since I've met a doctor
with whom I've felt assured and comfortable. She explained the issue
and the reason for each medicine.
