CANCER CHANGED MY LIFE! Of course for the Better! NO Chemotherapy, Natural Treatment! NO Side Effects!!

On the 30th of June I had rather uneasy feeling & pain in my gut, I let it pass with usual dose of antacid. The Lifestyle Healer in me arose.
Later on the day had gone by rather smoothly. The following day, 1st July was the 60th wedding anniversary of my Parents and instead of celebrating we were only nursing my pain. In the middle of the night, wee hours of 2nd July the gut was screaming in agony which led us to the Hospital for examination and a shot of pain killer. Returned home and slept off for around 3-4 hours to be woken again by more miserably intense pain.

The afternoon of that fateful Sunday took us to the Hospital and after routine tests like X-Rays, Sonography & CT Scan, I was told that they would need to cut my gut open in the next couple of hours as it was in a critical stage of perforation.

It was the first time that I was admitted in a Hospital to be Operated upon in my near 60 years of a rather Healthy Lifestyle (in spite of all the so called negative intake, both food & drinks throughout my Adult Life).
I guess I must have done something right to be fit and fine thus far, of course mainly due to the support system of my Awesome Half, my Life, my Wife Kavita and my two loving caring Sons Mohit & Karan!

Dr Sudhir Jadhav, My Life Saver, most awesome Human, Gastro Surgeon told us that it would be a two hour OT procedure and all would be well; by this time on my forehead was cold sweat, the mind was agitated. My closest and beloved family members, brother Mahesh & Shalini had come over for support to be later joined by Vinod, Priya & Mohit.
My case turned out to be Sigmoid Colon Cancer. They had found a huge malignant Tumour in my gut and the two-hour surgery extended to nearly 8.5 hours. Sigmoid Colectomy was performed and I was moved to ICU for the next 36 hours with ventilator support system. I was oblivious, obviously under anaesthesia and all Family worried no end.

On the 5th July, Mohit my elder son broke the Cancer news to me and the first thing that ran through my mind was:

My Zest and my Love for Life, “Joie de Vivre” is only going to grow stronger and I swear that we are going to beat the shit out of this.
We will deal with this and deal with this well. Cheers, C’est La Vie!

I was also lucky in that I did not suffer a single symptom besides the gut pain associated with my ailment.

Cancer came as a pause. Thankfully in leaving, it gave me the opportunity to Reset.

A Life Testing experience was to begin….

to be concluded…..

Lose That FAT! We Did It, You Can Do It Too !!

Pics from our “Fat” misery days (1992, when I was 29 and Mohan was 34):

scan010751scan0109

I was anemic for most of my life and knew that it was the prime reason of my suffering lethargy & stress. After marriage I naturally got overweight and suffered from severe chronic migraines, hypertension (high BP) and palpitation of the heart for which I was also admitted to the hospital and I tried many Doctors (allopathic & homeopathic). Instead of helping, the prescribed pills and medications only added to my misery with side effects like skin allergy, rash, anxiety & loss of sleep. I have also undergone the agony of two miscarriages which added to my misery.

Mohan was also overweight and suffered from severe acidity, lethargy and had to bear the agony of a lump of the size of a grape in his innards. We also tried numerous workouts & diet programs, but nothing worked… until we realized that we had to rely on ourselves to lose weight and be fit. It seemed like a nightmare, having so little time on our hands since we were both busy with daily routine and chores. Mohan was tied up in his ever demanding business and I was busy raising my two boys and caring for Mohan’s ailing parents.

SlimSutra was the Need of the Hour !!

Once I started working on our SlimSutra- The Holistic Mantra to Be Slim & Well. Stay Slim & Fit. Naturally!

I lost 10-12 kgs (20-24 lbs) in 45 days.
Later steadily I shed another 8-10 kgs!
Totally I lost between 20-22 kgs (40-44 lbs) and 3-4 inches from my waist and hips!
Mohan lost nearly 20 kgs (40 lbs) and 4 inches off his waist in less than four months.

What is even more amazing is that Mohan and I have kept every single kilo (pound) that we lost, off for over 12 years now!

Being Thin is NOT Being Healthy

If there’s a universal truth in health news lately, it’s that being overweight isn’t good for your health. Extra weight, especially in the form of fat, can lead to heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure, among other problems.

 But a new study hints that being lean doesn’t get you entirely off the health hook either. In a genetic analysis involving more than 75,000 people, an international group of scientists found that lean people with a specific genetic variant were at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease despite their lower body fat.

 The key, say the scientists, is to focus on not just the amount of fat, but the type of fat that you might have. A growing body of evidence shows that fat deposited just under the skin doesn’t contribute that much to the development of metabolic disorders such as diabetes or heart problems. But fat accumulated in deeper tissues and organs, within muscle and embedded in organs like the liver, for example, can put you at greater risk of these diseases. And that goes for lean people too: they might not have much visible fat under the skin, but may be sequestering so-called visceral fat inside their body.

 What regulates where you store fat? Unfortunately, much of it is out of your control — it’s largely genetic and gender based. Women tend to store fat under the skin, while men are more likely to deposit it deeper in tissues. As for the genetic factor, in the current study, the researchers identified one variant out of more than 2.5 million candidate sites on the genome linked to body fat. This genetic variant seems to predispose people to depositing visceral fat as opposed to the more benign subcutaneous fat. We think the gene we found causes an error such that it’s harder for these people to store fat under the skin. So the fat is stored elsewhere, around the organs and in muscle where it disturbs the normal function of these organs.

 What surprised the scientists was the power of this genetic abnormality on metabolic factors such as cholesterol and triglyceride levels and insulin resistance. Even people with low body fat but who possessed this version of the gene, consistently had higher levels of blood cholesterol and were more likely to show some resistance to processing insulin, one of the first signs of diabetes. Many of these individuals showed normal body mass index or BMI readings, which assess weight but don’t take into account the percentage of body fat.

 The findings highlight the importance of refining our understanding of the relationship between weight, body fat and disease. Many people who look lean may assume they are healthy and may not be as likely to get regular blood tests to check their cholesterol and blood glucose levels. That may put them at higher risk of having a heart attack or suffering from tissue and organ damage due to diabetes because they never knew they were at risk. Getting regular checkups, regardless of your weight,  may help more people to stay healthy and avoid diabetes and heart problems.

Hi. My name is Kavita. I was born at Mumbai on the 11th of October, 1963.

My parents arranged as is customary in India, for me to marry Mohan the only child of Mrs. Mani and Mr. Gopaldas Menda, who were very simple & modest souls and patriarch of a large and immensely powerful family. Our wedding ceremony & reception was held on the 1st of February, 1985 in fairytale fashion at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai with a guest list consisting of Royalty, Heads of State, Ministers, Industrialists, Socialites, Celebrities and above all a great well knit Family.
It was the most memorable and inspiring day in my life. To see pictures please follow the link: Kavita and Mohan Wedding Pictures

The family tree –
Mohan’s Grand Parents, Smt Shantidevi & Shri Bhojraj Menda, an extremely successful Businessman & Visionary, whose successors today reap the Rewards of their Legacy of Deep Rooted Love & Family Values.
Shri Gopal Menda and his younger brother Shri Ghansham established an Electronics Business in Bombay, distributing & retailing products of Murphy, Garrard UK, Novino, Sony, Dysan, BPL, Videocon etc.
The other two brothers Shri Ramesh & Shri Mahesh are based in Dubai for over 3 decades, in association with His Royal Highness Sheikh Hasher Al Makhtoum of UAE.

Seven Sisters of Shri Gopal Menda are also married into reputed families viz:

Shri G.G. Makhija of Superphone,
Shri P.P.Chhabria of Finolex Group,
Shri Girdhari P. Hinduja and Shri Srichand P.Hinduja of the Hinduja Group,
Shri S.T. Wadhwa of Aerolex,
Shri Mohan Shroff of Shroff Exports
and
Dr. P.P.Chhabria, Head Of Radiology, Milwaukee, USA.

Success runs in the Family and the above is just an illustration of the philosophy, conviction &motivation with which Mohan & I founded SlimSutra –

“Make it happen” and not to settle for anything but the best!!

Mohan started his career at the tender age of 12, learning with his father and uncles at the showroom. He was personally involved in the selling of all the products. In 1979, he was deputed to London for training with the Sethia Group of Companies where he obtained hands on experience in International Trade, Commodities, Bullion, Shipping, Travel (IATA), and Forex etc. In 1982, he set up a successful software + hardware venture, and in 1991 a Courier company amongst other ventures.

The essence of Our endeavor in Life is summed up in the lines of Robert J Frost-
“ I have promises to keep… and miles to go before I sleep!”

SlimSutra was the Need of the Hour !!

I was anemic for most of my life and knew that it was the prime reason of my suffering lethargy & stress. After marriage I naturally got overweight and suffered from severe chronic migraines, hypertension (high BP) and palpitation of the heart for which I was also admitted to the hospital and I tried many Doctors (allopathic & homeopathic). Instead of helping, the prescribed pills and medications only added to my misery with side effects like skin allergy, rash, anxiety & loss of sleep. I have also undergone the agony of two miscarriages which added to my misery.
Mohan was also overweight and suffered from acidity. We also tried numerous workouts & diet programs, but nothing worked… until we realized that we had to rely on ourselves to lose weight and be fit. It seemed like a nightmare, having so little time on our hands since we were both busy with daily routine and chores. Mohan was tied up in his ever demanding business and I was busy raising my two boys and caring for Mohan’s ailing parents.
We then began the mission to develop a weight loss and wellness plan for us, by reading numerous articles in magazines, books and from the internet on the subject. Initially it was not smooth sailing because of abundant controversy about what was specifically good or bad for us.

Our perseverance and pursuit led us to meet our Mystic Spiritual Guru.
During our first meet with our Guru, He had taken a vow to not reveal his identity.
He instantly discovered in us the spark and the will to find a Solution for our myriad of disorders and advised us to take the path that We are on today.
Our interest grew as he began teaching us His Mantra of Holistic Health defined as an approach to life and healing that recognizes Nature’s artful balancing of the elements of the body and that one’s environment & lifestyle, relevant diet, personal habits and emotional health all have a profound influence on our wellness. A lifestyle which maximizes on the body’s natural drive of self-healing and self-regenerating, not only to survive, but to be well. Above all He taught us the eternal Mantra that
We are all Unique as Unique as our fingerprint.”

He explained in detail that this was the primary reason that no one has found a long term solution in any faculty of learning or science for most Health related problems from the smallest to the most complicated disorders.
He added that even Doctors from all the relevant sciences and their loved ones were suffering as any other person.
Our Guru also taught us the healing art of Acupressure. The next few months were our turning point for the Positive.
Once I started working on this Mantra or Program, I lost 10-12 kgs (20-24 lbs) in 45 days.
Later steadily I shed another 8-10 kgs!
I lost between 20-22 kgs (40-44 lbs) and 3-4 inches from my waist and hips!
Mohan lost nearly 20 kgs (40 lbs) and 4 inches off his waist in less than four months.

I am now age 54, in great spirits and mother of two lovely & Healthy boys Mohit, age 30 & Karan is 25, both follow our program.
Mohan is also in prime health at age 59.

What is even more amazing is that Mohan and I have kept every single kilo (pound) off that we lost, for over 17 years now.

Not only did we Lose Weight and Reduce in Size but also have managed for over 17 years to remain well & fit.
All this without any Medication, Products, Supplements or Diets of any kind!!

We began to share this Mantra with many and our work was appreciated giving us the encouragement to fuel the passion and we launched:

SlimSutra- The Holistic Mantra to Be Slim & Well. Stay Slim & Fit. Naturally!

SlimSutra Cares Best for all your Weight Loss and Total Well being needs. For this we have access to a fine team of Experts, Fitness & Wellness Consultant, Nutritionist, Dietitian and Doctors.
