My name is Sharda and I live in the most liveable city of the world, Melbourne, with my beautiful family. As a Breast Cancer and Fibromyalgia thriver, I am super passionate about educating and empowering women to make powerful lifestyle changes which will help them achieve better health outcomes so they can live life to the fullest.
My path to wellness started when I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2008. At that stage I was dealing with severe pain and exhaustion on a daily basis and the options offered by the medical doctors were very limited. On 10th June, 2012 I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. I had to undergo two surgeries in the span of a month which was followed by 6 months of rigorous chemotherapy.
During my cancer treatment, and months after, I was completely bedridden. I used this time to research a lot. I read books, subscribed to blogs, attended webinars and made meditation a daily practice. Once my body recovered a little; I attended the ten day ‘Life and Living’ retreat held by The Gawler Foundation for people going through cancer. This was a life changing experience.
I changed the way I was eating, started juicing regularly, meditating even more & made exercising a regular part of my life. I learnt all about the toxins affecting our health and how to avoid them. Self care became a very important part of my life. I completed a course in gardening and started growing some organic herbs and veggies. I attended courses on making fermented foods and made kombucha and fermented veggies a regular part of my diet. Slowly and steadily my health started to improve and I can say now I feel better than I have ever done before!!
These days we are bombarded with tonnes of information. At times it can all be quite daunting. By sharing my journey, recipes, easy tips and tricks and teaching in workshops, I hope to make it easier for you and inspire you to take baby steps towards achieving optimum wellness and preventing illness.
