Does immunity boosters prevent Corona?
As a nutritionist and wellness coach, I get so many queries regarding immunity boosters daily. A lot of sales are going on in all areas due to COVID and people who don’t know anything about diet or local food and nutrition is spreading all wrong news about immunity. Yesterday, I had an interview regarding this topic in a leading newspaper.
The food movements like eat right movement promoted by FSSAI and all local food with different varieties and colors are good. There is no superfood or any immunity booster that can prevent COVID. Maybe a balanced diet that includes the local food from all food groups can help.
A man-made virus spread for destroying humanity is reflecting people to find the truth and the myth which was spreading to mask the truth against diet and nutrition science. In every nutrition program we can find stalls with thousands of local food items as superfood from coconut to jackfruit which were available in almost all households in Kerala. However, it has some effects if you include it in a balanced diet. And mind or emotions and mental health issues are more now so stay at peace with what you have than believing these. People have the right to know the truth and they decide what is the best and your life is your choice. This is just derived from the discussion with thought leaders and dietitians around the globe and from my own experience in the last 17 years as a nutritionist practicing in India and believing in the power of nature and natural food and meditation to heal!.
Go for a balanced diet plan that suits you and your family with available food source and income or personal preferences.

How nutrition quacks and poor supplements affect your health?
The first quarter of 2020 started with more COVID pandemic issues in India. There were more discussions regarding the health and wellness of people in Kerala and India. Since many of my clients and friends were dealing with similar issues and with the aim to see a healthy nation, I wanted to spread the right information as recommended by the Health Department and the National team India to focus on Eat Right Movement and food plate.
Nutrisolutions Global Community
A couple of years ago I had the privilege to meet our Union Minister of State, Agriculture and Family Welfare Mr. Parshottam Rupala. I am proud to let you know that Mr. Parshottam Rupala inaugurated Nutrisolutions website.

During the visit I could also hand over the first copy of my book “Diet and Meditation for Emotional Eating” to our honorable Prime Minister. I hope that the research and experience of thousands of clients’ emotions, various other socio-economic factors and the importance of mental health compiled in the book will be considered by the team. It’s a worldwide report of clients from different parts of the world, which forms the Nutrisolutions Global Community. We help people to support and evolve in all areas of life than giving them just a Diet Plan. Many of my clients who are affected during lockdown are more peaceful and they are better aware of the ascension process happening on the earth right now.
The blessings in disguise
The last 20 years of meditation and blessings of masters from the Himalayas and abroad helped me to understand the metaphysical phenomenon of changes in the human system. This enabled me to make people aware of their own energy to heal their cells and evolve. No wonder that those who joined our community for infertility issues are conceiving with the right nutrition tips of organic local food or the way they understood their inner voice than listening to their external limited issues.
A healthy balanced diet can help heal or nourish and helps to cure infertility. Many of them have experienced the healing from illness and a life with abundance. So we continued the meditation sessions at 10:00 pm, which gave inner peace to the public. This is helpful to retain positivity when so many negative news like the surging rates of depression and suicide due to COVID reaches us on a daily basis.
Yes, it’s difficult to make people understand in a limited knowledge of three-dimension. However, spiritual science research in various parts of the world including that of Joe Dispenza and Heart Math Institute helps people to understand other layers of the body. Our masters in India and the 10,000-year-old Veda also mentions it. The power of sunlight in healing and curing deficiencies are also being successfully studied across the world.
To make people understand the healing power of Vedic mantra and Rigveda, we started another free session on Gayathri Mantra Chanting Meditation. I have been chanting it since my childhood. It helps me to understand the hidden truth of this world.
Nutrition quacks and supplements
People who do not have enough knowledge in Nutrition Science are spreading awareness on supplements. Weight loss products sales from nutrition quacks are at higher rates now. Recently a friend who is a doctor in a renowned hospital in Kochi referred a patient who was suffering organ damage. Long hours for exercises in gym and wrong advice on supplements damaged her organs. Heavy metals and weight loss products recommended by the gym expert contributed to her illness. This made me think and understand the relevance of watching the nutrition quacks and their sales through foreign agencies and other business associations. Their aim is mere profit. Spreading wrong information they promote thousands of immune boosters even through reputed health professionals in Allopathy, Ayurveda or Homoeopathy.
A majority of the fake news about COVID healing is spread by nutrition quacks without any solid background in nutrition and dietetics. These information are not recommendations of any authorized bodies like ICMR, WHO or FSSAI. If you check FSSAI for the right information on COVID, there is no prevention or cure with supplements or food. Rather they recommend a normal balanced diet without interrupting the food chain. It is also informed that many supplements which are banned in other countries are being circulated in countries like India. My recommendation is to always ask the qualification of the person who suggests a diet plan. It is always more important to share the right information than a wrong diet plan.
Our take on nutrition quacks
Since I completed my Masters from College of Agriculture Vellayani, and studied with a scholarship, our focus is always on community. There were only three seats plus one ICAR candidate for the project. Our project work and research was equal to a Ph.D. thesis with much effort, than adjustments. I later understood how easy it is to submit a project in normal colleges while I was teaching or helping students in their research work.
While working as a Dietician, I understood the various degrees of applied knowledge in the clinical cases. It was surprising to find that in Kerala or India anyone with a quick certificate on nutrition or a supplement sale agent can act as a Dietician. But they can harm our nation and people by killing the Indian Food Culture. We are not illiterate to be cheated. A normal homemade diet with different food groups adds enough proteins and nutrients for a day. If planned wisely with the right portion and follow up, in three months you can stabilize the essential nutrients in your body.
Think and act with brain and heart together.
More light, love, peace and joy

Lock down Obesity and Emotional Eating
Lock down is a period of self realisation. Due to various reason and financial instability, many of my clients are worried. They all are connected from different parts of the world through Nutrisolutions’ Global Community social media platform. One – to – one communications are helping them to come out of the trauma. The current pandemic situation is really affecting the mind, body, emotions as well as the thought process. In order to support the community, a movement to uplift the mind was started earlier. We have also initiated a worldwide meditation 2020 program where we connect twice daily through group meditation.
Although Nutrition is the science of food, it is also connected to the wellbeing of our emotions. The approach of dietician in understanding the situation as well as the food culture, personal preference or religious belief. Particularly in a country like India where we do a lot of rituals or social functions is also connected to food habits. Now due to Ramadan many of them are into deep meditation and intermittent fasting. It is purifying the mind and even the emotions. Food plays a major role in mental health and stability. The nutrients in a balanced diet help and water play a major role in brain health and our body is more of water . There is no super food or immunity boosters. But your own daily nourishment from local available sources and a customised plan with right motivation shows more results than reading lot of nutrition tips and applying everything.
Emotions are energy in motion. It has a major role in affecting the body and mind. Stress is a part of modern world where each one is running for something like others around them. A few minutes of meditation actually helps my clients to find the root causes of that they are affected. Food is not the only source of energy but the suggestion we give to our own self. When we are relaxed and with more universal energy from meditation, it clears all the blockages of life and new opportunities enter into the life. So this period is really important to understand the true purpose .I always feel so much happiness for this passion in creating awareness on healthy eating and local low cost food and the transformation it brings in people,their emotions and relationship. Writing down all emotions and some tips to save energy for the day make you feel more better and self love, which is the opposite of anxiety and fear .When we are in fear we create a lower vibration energy. Always remember that world food chain is affected according to WHO and remember the chances of starvation when you feel like to over eat. May be our ancestors faced more of these pain and starvation which made us to store more fat percentage and more chances of obesity in our gene. Some studies shows that Asians have more chances and our body type or mind set is different. We cannot take world standard in the case of obesity since there are so many factors which is correlated to weight gain and the approach towards the problem .
“Gayathri I am really happy for you and all your advice which is helping me a lot during lock down to overcome stress and living within my budget but with all daily needs of nutrients. Now I am surprised to note that this diet is not only for weight loss but for a better nutrition support for my family and easy cooking recipe eating everything that I love without guilt and each follow up with your personal attention is helping me to get more energy and hope to reach my target of 10kg weight loss in just 90days and it is sustainable too since my friends suggested your program and community support” , This is the feedback from a client and many of them are remembering their hidden skills and new passion for their life of peace and joy.
Hope for the best and we all are connected. You are not alone. Just hug your inner self and say that this is the best period in your life to understand the reality how much you need in your life and a period of shift in consciousness and more gratitude to planet earth for providing all food, water, air ,sunlight ad everything we need but we try to replace it with artificial sources and the trap of listening to too much information than the truth which helps you to connect and sustain.
love light peace & joy
