Ayurvedic nutritionist | Digestive Health & Lifestyle Coach
Symptoms are an indication of a deeper imbalance within the system . My approach is to help people heal the root cause of their ailments and not just their symptoms.I help people heal using a personalised diet and lifestyle and use herbal medicine only if necessary. I provide the education, information and practical skills one needs to implement a PERSONALIZED nutrition care plan that works for one’s unique body and lifestyle. I use the wisdom of Ayurveda to help people heal by aligning their systems to the principles of Nature. I guide people to follow a plant-based diet and give guidance on how to continue that eating pattern while alleviating digestive symptoms. I also use my intuition to help myself and the client understand the emotional cause ( if any ) of the ailment apart from issues related to food and lifestyle.
My Mantra: “The body is the result of food, disease is the result of food, the difference between ease and disease is the intake of wholesome nutrition or the lack of it." - Ayurvedic Proverb
Fifteen years ago, I had the privilege to meet a remarkable man who was a great soul apart from being a truly gifted healer. His sense of intuition, knowledge of Ayurveda, folk healing traditions and ability to use his divine sense of knowledge based wisdom to help sick people from all walks of life moved and inspired me. When I would spend time with him and see and visit patients, in due course of time, I realised that nothing gives me more joy than to see people heal. Over the years, I also had the privilege to learn from many gifted Masters and Healers in the healing arts including Ayurveda, Aromatherapy , Bach Flower essences and more.
More has changed in the human diet and lifestyle in the last 70 odd years as compared to the last 10,000 yers or more. A survey via Fox News showed that about 74 % of Americans ( about 246 Million people ) are living with Digestive disorders and many of them have not even discussed it with their Doctors. Though modern medicine is a blessing, many people have not been able to find relief through it and seek help via alternative natural methods for the same.
Using the wisdom of Ayurveda*, I help people having Digestive disorders from feeling helpless due to various digestive ailments such as constant bloating, IBS, Acidity, GERD, fatigue, dieting, and confusion/fear about what’s causing their digestive symptoms, to feeling CALM, CONFIDENT, and IN CONTROL of their symptoms.
People tend to connect with me if : -
-They have digestive issues or have been diagnosed with a functional gut disorder
-They have a history of chronic dieting and want to break free from diet culture fads
-They want to reduce total digestive symptoms and heal their base foundation **
-They want to incorporate more plants and healthful foods for energy, longevity, and environmental sustainability
-They want to regain freedom from their digestive symptoms and heal.
*Ayurveda is one of the oldest health systems in the world which originated in India more than 5000 years ago. Also known as the sister of Yoga, Ayurveda believes that most diseases originate with imbalances in the digestive system.
** The longer a person may be facing ailments, especially of a chronic nature, the longer they may take to heal.
"I have been suffering from various illnesses from the age of 5. Though conventional medicine helped my conditions to a great extent, it never promised to complete heal and cure me. My doctors heavily relied on the assistance of strong medications that had severe side effects and told me there was no end to this and that the remainder of my life would be this way, in a compromised state. Presently, my main troubles with health are an auto-immune illness, chronic kidney disorder, atopic dermatitis, and hypertension. I’m only 21 years old and take over 12 tablets a day which my doctors say will continue for the rest of my life. Their verdict of my state is that the best bet is to have my health be stable at this stage and not deteriorate further. I’ve been under the guidance of Mr. Kartikeya Talreja for a short span of 2 months now. In this period, my blood pressure medicines have reduced from 5 tablets a day to 2. I have never felt this positive regarding my health state before and this change in my list of medicines, though small in itself, is a huge step towards sizable betterment for me. It gives me great hope of being illness free and not reliant on an umpteen number of drugs one day. Beyond this, Mr. Talreja is the first person in several years post a long list of doctors, healers, and other individuals who tried to help me, who with conviction has said that there is a strong possibility of me having an ordinary life, where I have no restrictions on how to live, what I can/cannot do, and what I am permitted to eat. Being ordinary and just like anyone else my age seemed only a wild fantasy to me growing up but today I can see that it turn into a reality. I’m extremely grateful to Mr. Talreja for showing me this possibility and enabling me to achieve it."

"I have been under Kartikeya’s guidance for 2 months now. During this period I have experienced a lot of amazing changes in my digestion, physical well being, immunity and also in my mental and emotional well being as well. Kartikeya is very knowledgeable not only in the science of Ayurveda but also supplements the changes he advises with positive affirmations and a keen understanding of how the human mind and body works and reacts. Being a non vegetarian enthusiast my entire life, I didn’t think it would be possible to implement a plant based diet. However Kartikeya’s ability and patience to explain in depth the reason behind why certain food groups are good or bad for you made me want to implement a fundamental change in my diet. Under Kartikeya’s guidance I have felt empowered with a deeper understanding of my body and diet. I am extremely grateful to him for guiding me towards an internal health revolution and educating me on how to lead a balanced healthy life. Thank you Kartikeya!"

"My gratitude to Kartikeya Talreja.
Thank you coaching me through what was an extraordinary experience of my mind, body and soul. I am grateful for the opportunity universe gifted me. It has been a realization on how we deprive ourselves and fuel it according to what's available and time. You helped me analyze myself and gradually got me to understand how important it is to nurture your body type so that it syncs in perfect harmony and responds to you. My aches and pains gradually disappeared and this was my turning point. The process helped me connect to nature which is so essential to enjoy life. This experience has been rediscovering yourself and welcoming a new you. I have thoroughly enjoyed the recipes and learnt new dishes. It's great to connect with nature, my mind, body and soul had yearned for this. Treating your body is like driving a vehicle and I believe it deserves better and you taught me to treat it like a luxury vehicle instead."
