Aashish Nanda... This online platform aashishnanda.com is an expression of my journey, my experiential wisdom that just by simplifying life, one can lead a Healthy Life - in the Mind and in the Body.
Of course, through this online platform, I wish to expand my offline reach to as many people as I can and if possible, help a few take a pause… to see if anything, in their lives, need a course correction.
Interestingly, my present initiative was not what I had set out for initially. I had taken up a rewarding job in a top corporate after completing my studies. But destiny had other plans for me when a few serious personal health scares brought forth both the shortcomings of modern lifestyle and awful inadequacy of modern methods of addressing them.
My ReBooT Journey... I still remember the day more than two decades back when my Doctor told me in as many words that if I do not do something drastic, I will not survive for long. Perpetual mental stresses, stomach issues, recurring fevers, duodenal ulcers, liver damage, massive weight gain, a herniated disk and a suspected mercury 'amalgam' poisoning made me feel beyond my years. My health had hit rock bottom.
I promised my Doctor that I will work towards being Healthy so that I die Healthy... Thereby started my quest to heal. Thankfully, along the way, I met the right guides and they helped me understand the need to make the necessary healing and life corrections.
During this journey, I studied ancient scriptures, took certifications of different self-healing techniques, researched to find the rationale of these practices and gained personal wisdom into their benefits by practicing on self.
I worked through my real and perceived mind-body limitations and blockages. Slowly the process helped to ReBooT - Reclaim my LIFE.
Today, in my 50’s and in better control of my Health... I continue to imbibe and experience the simple mind-body techniques to make changes throughout my remaining years as I discover new truths.
My first step was strengthening the Mind... The wisdom of the scriptures became integral part of my Recovery. The more I worked on my mind, my emotions and simple living, the better I felt in the body too.
" I now firmly believe that Mind and the Body want to resonate at their healthiest best. BUT unfortunately, too many new age complexities ... ... "
My experiences during all of this changed my view of medicine and inspired me to be part of a different approach to healthcare. Yes! Modern medicine helps with acute care medicine, but it tends to neglect preventative care.
Holistic Mind-Body approach is my LIFE Mantra now... I wish for the day when everyone else would also do the same and address their issues using simple Holistic and Wholistic techniques.
The ReBooT processes I follow... In hindsight, this journey proved to be a life transforming blessing in disguise and put me on to the path of going back to my ROOTS by imbibing the science based guidelines of the true yoga practice, diaphragmatic breathing, thought-mind management, right food and related techniques.
" I strongly believe around 90% of Mind-Body Health issues can be addressed by simple LIFE changes. "
