Annapoorna Holistic Nutrition is a fully plant based, health promoting plan that follows the Food for Life program set by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
We provide an innovative approach to preventing and reversing chronic diseases that are very much dependent on the foods we eat. Shobha Swamy, founder of Annapoorna Holistic Nutrition has the vision of bettering people’s lives by maximizing their health through a plant based diet.
Being born and raised a vegetarian in India, Shobha Swamy was well established in consuming lots of vegetables, fruits, legumes and grains from a very young age. However her diet included dairy and small amount of eggs as popular with most vegetarians.
When her daughters watched the movie Food Inc. in High School and decided to give up all animal products, she set forth to do her own research about the pros and cons of removing animal products from their diet. Her pursuit led her to evidence based scientific research and published peer reviewed articles in major medical journals about the power of plants to reverse and reduce your risk of chronic lifestyle illnesses, like Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Auto-Immune Diseases, and many more.
She switched her diet to a Plant Based Nutrition plan and found that her energy and vigor as well as mental focus and concentration was greatly improved. Her family reaped the same benefits. Her husband and 75 year old mother too saw their pain from arthritis diminish, small aches and pains in the joints disappear, energy levels improve, and began to live more vibrant, active, productive lives.
She then decided to help others reap similar benefits and was certified in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University through the T Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She is also certified to teach cooking classes with emphasis on nutritive value of food through the FOOD for LIFE Program offered by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
She offers monthly classes to showcase adopting this Way of Eating. She is currently offering cooking demonstrations, informational nutrition classes, public speaking, and private and family consultations. We educate, and help people regain their health through food. Please contact her for a speaking engagements or a series of classes for your organization or group.
