Shruti’s Story

 

Cancer survivor becomes cancer coach

Awaana Health was founded in 2021 by Shruti and Tanya, but, this story starts years before in 2016 when Shruti was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system. At this time Shruti was working as a successful fashion designer in Mumbai running her flagship store in the upscale Bandra neighbourhood. The diagnosis came as a big shock, also because she thought of herself as a fairly healthy person considering that she grew up on a vegetarian diet and exercised regularly. 

During her treatment, she witnessed the harsh effects of conventional treatment on her mind and body, which pushed her to look up holistic treatment alternatives, studies and therapies that could help. After many months of struggle, speaking to various ‘experts’ and failed experiments, it was a meeting with Dr. Raj and Dr. Rashmi Menon that introduced her to functional medicine. It was like she discovered a whole new world!

Fast-forward, Shruti reversed stage-3 Cancer and became completely cancer-free in a record time of six months. She changed her diet, lifestyle, and her whole outlook towards life. This experience deeply inspired her to share this life-altering experience with others and instilled this yearning to share what she had learnt with others who needed it just as much. Shruti spent the next few years digging deeper into integrative medicine, she studied nutrition therapy, yoga and built a network of integrative medicine practitioners and continued to learn from them. For next few years she worked as a health coach and nutrition therapist and helped many people suffering from Cancer and other chronic health issues.

Shruti is now a dedicated Holistic Cancer Coach, Energy Psychologist, and Holistic Nutritionist and has worked with over two hundred clients battling chronic conditions, guiding them toward a healthier and happier lifestyle. Shruti regularly conducts workshops, talks, and seminars on holistic living, reversing chronic diseases, and adopting a plant-based lifestyle. Shruti has now extended her practice internationally, bringing her expertise to clients in the United States.
