“I have received knowledge of what animal products does to me, the animals and the planet. This knowledge has caused me to want to change. I have received guidance and resources to help make the changes necessary to reach the goal of becoming a plant based eater. I will continue being a vegan and when possible teach others of what I have learned and how it has helped me and how it can help them.”

Health Coaching Testimonials

“Having Shanti as my health coach has been a wonderful gift (to myself). I never thought I would have a health coach but after my husband had a sudden heart attack, I decided I want to do all I can to become and stay healthy myself. I look forward to our conversations because Shanti listens and interprets what I’m saying and helps me become aware of how certain aspects of my life are affecting my health. She then helps me make a plan to deal with whatever the situation or problem is. She helps me gain insight into why I am feeling or acting a certain way. I am sure I would not have come to these realizations on my own. Coaching time is time to focus on myself with Shanti providing support to help me get to where I want to go. She also makes me laugh! “
— Christine H. Peekskill, NY
“Hard to believe just eight weeks ago I was on my deathbed. I was closing in on only 100 pounds, medications were no longer working, I could hardly walk across the house. My family was scared and suffering. I was slowly wasting away and nobody could change it for me, no medication or doctor could cure me, and I made a decision. I decided that autoimmunity was NOT going to run my life, and in order for my life to change, I NEEDED TO CHANGE. I started eating cleaner, cut out gluten, dairy and sugar and changed to a plant based diet.
There comes a time in your life when you realize only you can change your condition and though may have a lifelong disorder, I’ve managed to reduce my medication to almost nothing, gain almost 15 pounds, change my outlook on everything, spend more time with my family, get back to cooking and enjoying food. My plan is to stick with it. I haven’t felt this good in years. I want to thank all those that were there encouraging me. It means the world to me. I couldn’t have done it without you.”
