Ulcerative colitis is an inflammation in the lining of the large intestine. It is sometimes accompanied by diarrhoea, weight loss and malabsorption of nutrients. Medication, unfortunately, worsens the condition.

What causes ulcerative colitis?

Ulcerative colitis disease always starts with a gut issue; it is an autoimmune condition, so the good cells of the body attack themselves. In Shonali's opinion, incorrect foods are crucial contributors to the emergence and development of gut health issues.

What is Shonali's USP (Uniqueness)?

In her diet plan for ulcerative colitis, Shonali’s approach is to first put you through a regimen of absorption since most people in this condition have stopped absorbing nutrients from their food. Post this, she begins the process of cleansing the gut with a healthy food intake. This is followed by incorporating foods that will repair and strengthen the gut. She balances the use of fibre from foods in such a way that it does not trigger the condition.

How does Shonali help?

Shonali’s diet plan for ulcerative colitis 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.

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.
