Happy to announce that this summer Guru & Associates Wellness is launching an exciting pilot project that combines support, education and team work to help you lose weight and embrace a healthier life. A recent study revealed greater happiness and optimism in individuals who had lower cholesterol and LDL levels
Alex Gellman, after completing her Ph D in homeopathy, did her research thesis on accelerating weight loss by healing through Homeopathy. Her hypothesis was that “thyroid is the underlying factor in obesity”.
The program ran for 6 months. All research subjects took the homeopathic remedy that would heal the underlying reason the weight came on in the first place. Some subjects also took a homeopathic remedy to boost thyroid function. The average weight loss for the group was 35 pounds per person.
The second group was given only the homeopathic remedy to boost thyroid and the average weight loss for this group was 5 pounds over 6 months.
The conclusion was that yes, we need to support thyroid functions; however if the underlying factors that led up to the weight gain are not addressed, it will be difficult to lose weight.
Some individuals have had a weight problem since they were children. This can also be addressed with homeopathic remedies.
Change is never easy for most folks and research tells us that the transition is made easier with the support of friends and family to help us integrate the new behaviors.
YOU are cordially invited to help create and form organically, this program designed to support you through the difficult changes involved in embracing a healthier life style.
The program will run on-line for easy access from, or you can join us in person at one of our two locations: Toronto or Erin (just north of Oakville).
See dates below for when we will be at each location if you wish to participate in person to get an extra boost of motivation.
Sharing progress reports and weight can be a motivating factor for some – or a nightmare for others, so sharing information of any kind is entirely optional. Choose to share, or not to share, but do come. You’ll get valuable nutritional advice and workout strategies, and healthy raw food recipes.
We will also explore how to heal from events that led to the weight gain and how to overcome “emotional eating” impulses. You’ll learn to identify your food sensitivities, how to boost your own particular metabolism, and gain helpful life habits to keep you on track. This holistic approach will contribute to your lifelong success.
Everyone is welcome to ask questions, share any concerns and experiences, or simply attend and observe. Even if you do not share or comment the content will help pave the road for greater compliance and healing.
On-Line participation is also available – again, with no obligation to share.

I arrived at the airport, starving, after leaving the house at 3:30 a.m. in order to catch a 6 a.m. flight. I’m well acquainted, as are many of you, with the horrors of airport food, along with the challenges of planning food for a six hour flight.
I started my day with a spinach and pear smoothie. This is usually perfect a perfect breakfast option. However, this time I felt a little queasy as a result of nerves about my upcoming flight and making a successful connection.
At the airport, I purchased food for the long flight ahead. I was resigned to confronting the usual options: a bread product – a lukewarm sandwich composed of a rubberized egg (which may or may not have been made the day before), processed pork round, and last but not least, a slice of plastic cheese. The end result could be a whopping 500 calories of fat and carbs. Let’s ensure we start our trip by packing on an extra ten pounds!
Imagine my happy surprise when I managed to find a semi-acceptable airport food option. My hat is off to Vito’s Gourmet Deli Market and their “Nana’s Marinated Chicken”. They created a grilled chicken salad topped with cranberries, pecans and goat cheese. I had picked up several containers of Vito’s salad dressing in case the chicken was dry, but it wasn’t required, as Vito’s managed to deliver moist, fully grilled chicken. Hurray! I enjoyed this salad shortly after takeoff.
Before getting on the plane, I had also purchased oatmeal with dried apples for back up; Long after the half way point in the flight I felt hungry again, so I pulled out my oats as the beverage cart went by. I ordered a hot water to activate my oatmeal and I was able to enjoy a warm meal before landing.
My own experience with airport food exemplifies the many different characteristics within body types described by the Ayurvedic system. I am a Vata, who needs warm food to feel good. To receive an assessment of what Ayurvedic type you are, please send me an email and I will respond as soon as possible. Ayurvedic profiles will help to pinpoint the best foods to bring balance into your life. I will also recommend various exercises and offer other lifestyle tips, which will help bring balance and wellness into your life.
