Are you someone who prefers having diabetes medicines lifelong and suffer from the complications thereof or would you rather be medicine-free and enjoy having all kinds of fruits without a worry?

If you are the second type, well then this program is for you! If you are Type 2 Diabetic, get ready to bid good bye to your medicines and the disease too under the expert guidance of our doctor Dr Lakshmi Sundar and our chef Neelima Sriram.

This special retreat focuses on helping participants develop lifelong skills on the reversal and management of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is preventable, treatable and very often reversible with the right lifestyle changes. Following a whole food lifestyle will not only control your sugar levels but reduce the associated co-morbidities.

What will you get in this special retreat?

  1. Consultation with the doctor. Some blood tests are mandatory. Our SHARAN co-ordinator will help you with this once you sign up.
  2. Hands on cooking and meal planning with the chef.
  3. Lectures on different aspects of diabetes
  4. Exercise sessions that will include both indoor and outdoor activities
  5. Meditation
  6. Learning to grow your own microgreens

This retreat will be followed by at least 2 online consultations and constant WhatsApp support for 5 weeks.

Testimonial 1 from defEAT diabetes workshop 1 –

The program has been so well crafted and guided that anyone can join and follow the regime. Dr Lakshmi is super supportive, knowledgeable and an excellent mentor. Chef Neelima is simply awesome. She will come up with recipes which are easy to make, super delicious and of course healthy so that people can fall only for the food. The program is very interactive and pays attention to minute details and provides suggestions and options by the coaches as we make with the program. Highly recommended for people who are working to get off medication and improving their health and also for people who want to choose a healthy lifestyle.

Testimonial 2

I would like to sincerely thank Dr Lakshmi and Ms Neelima for conducting SHARAN’s Defeat Diabetes online classes with immense personal energy, passion and a genuine desire to help everyone. If someone had told me 5-6 weeks ago that I will not only learn, but also put into practise, so many different life changing habits in this short span of time, I would have responded with a “No chance!”. However, here I am, eagerly looking forward to my morning exercises and breakfast smoothies, with a completely different take on cooking and eating “clean”, and in general, experiencing a better quality of life than the one from just a month ago. Thanks to this course, I have not only been able to reduce my dependence on medicines, I have also gained the confidence that I can improve my overall well-being by continuing to practise the life-skills that I have learnt in the last few weeks. Dr Lakshmi and Ms Neelima have been very patient and involved in their interactions on the whatsapp group and extremely considerate in providing much needed personalised counselling during the fortnightly one-on-one sessions. I am thankful to both of them for sharing many real-life insights from their own personal journeys, which have brought the course to life and made it a lot more actionable for all participants. I highly recommend this course to everyone (diabetic or otherwise!) to learn (and practise) some very valuable life-skills from inspirational practitioners like Dr Lakshmi and Ms Neelima, who “Walk the Talk” every day!
