About Us

“When doctors recommended an emergency triple bypass heart surgery to me 12 years ago, I chose to decline. Instead, I took six months off, traveled to meet leading physicians, nutritional scientists and relentlessly researched. I  adopted yoga, meditation and a 100% Natural, heart healthy, low carb, low-inflammation food that was FIT for ME. Our family adopted it and 3 years ago we biked across Tanglang La Pass ( 17,500ft)  in the Himalayas.  Chandana, my wife, reversed her pre-diabetes condition! Our personal journey to health proved to us that FOOD IS MEDICINE.

I want to share my findings and learnings with you
