- About Shonali
Shonali’s contribution and mission for India is to create a market for the Macrobiotic diet lifestyle and an alternative holistic approach using food to heal the body.
Shonali Sabherwal is India’s first Graduate and practising Macrobiotic Counselor/Chef/Instructor from The Kushi Institute (USA). Healing with food is her passion and a cause that is very close to her heart. Shonali began on this journey when her father contracted prostate cancer, and she was looking for a dietary practice to help him. Macrobiotics gained popularity when Madonna adopted it as a diet. However, it has the mantle of being a ‘cancer curing’ diet since the mid-70s.
Awarded as the Best Nutritionist in India by Vogue in 2020, Shonali believes diseases are the result of the imbalance in the body caused by a poor diet, lifestyle and emotional distress. This can be corrected via foods (used as medicine), changing lifestyles, and using complementary therapies.
