Fibromyalgia is a condition characterised by musculoskeletal pain, accompanied by fatigue, sometimes insomnia and memory loss. It can go undiagnosed, and even when doctors diagnose it, there is no real prognosis. Patients remain dependent on pain medication or other treatments to manage their pain (like dry needling, acupressure or craniosacral therapy).

What causes fibromyalgia?

Shonali has seen most cases have a psychosomatic component and a digestive issue that comes about before they actually get fibromyalgia. She tackles all these areas via an anti inflammatory diet for fibromyalgia and suggests alternative methods to manage this ailment.

What is Shonali's USP (Uniqueness)?

​​​​​​​Shonali’s anti inflammatory diet for fibromyalgia aims to restore the brain's neurotransmitters via foods by adding mood-boosting foods. The diet also takes into consideration any precursors on a physical and mental front that might spiral you into more pain. Her approach relies on the tenets of Macrobiotic philosophy: using the oriental system of ‘facial diagnosis’ and touch meridian diagnosis (if needed) to analyse the strength and health of your organs. Her framework (like Ayurveda) relies on using the foundation of analysing your constitution (that which you were born with: blueprint from your parents) and condition (that which you have created growing up). Macrobiotic philosophy uses the ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ elements of ‘energy’ or ‘prana’ to help her diagnose everything you are or do. This is her training and USP and how she actually zeroes in on your diagnosis and further prognosis.

How does Shonali help?

The anti inflammatory diet for fibromyalgia by Shonali uses the food tools and the principles of the Macrobiotic approach to aim at strengthening your gut, detoxifying you of all the accumulated toxins (‘ama’ in Ayurveda plus any accumulation of bad gut bacteria causing ‘dysbiosis’, i.e., when bad bacteria outweigh the beneficial ones) and balance the body’s pH. Her approach is to make you identify the toxins you are consuming from foods, the environment and your lifestyle and get rid of them. Plus, bring in food elements to clean up your gut to help you detoxify. She then layers this with holistic, natural everyday foods, using her knowledge of balancing the ‘foods’ and ‘cooking styles’ to give you the required strength to overcome your ailment and encourage balance.

Shonali is based in Mumbai and is presently working online in over 35 countries. She is the only one who works with you, and there are no assistants or other nutritionists between you and her. She conducts her own follow-ups and meetings personally, as she believes turning your health condition around is a ‘personal’ business, and only she has been trained to diagnose your condition and monitor the progress one-on-one. The macrobiotic approach is integrative and alternative and comes under the branch of lifestyle medicine, using foods as medicine to reverse and cure your health ailment/disease.
