Wellness Coaching – Somatic Approaches to the Rigid Character Defense Structure in India

Interestingly enough there are strong cultural implications of an Indian society that amplifies the rigid character defense.

This is caused by separation from their core essence and complete focus on keeping […]

The ‘Thin Privilege’

We live in a society that is obsessed with thinness and sadly associates thinness with beauty and even surprisingly assumes that a thin person is a fitter person.

This excess ATP is used to synthesize creatine phosphate – an energy rich molecule found only in the muscle […]

The co-dependence of the different systems of the body to regulate and maintain the body’s proper functioning that extends to the cellular level of the body has […]

All about Gallstones – Part 2

In my last blog, I talked about the function of the Gallbladder, what causes gallstones and how to diagnose if you have gallstones. I understand most doctors would usually advice patients to get a Cholecystectomy – surgical removal of the gallbladder- to eliminate pain associated with having gallbladder stones. The thought behind this is that […]

All about Gallstones! – Part 1

Ever heard of someone talking about having their gallbladder removed? Do we really need to remove an organ from our body to eliminate pain caused by gallstones!?
