In my clinic, I offer diet and lifestyle recommendations based on Ayurveda. Sometimes, if absolutely necessary, I will suggest Ayurvedic herbal formulations. Clients coming to my clinic are signing up to make diet and lifestyle changes that are customized for them based on classical Ayurveda texts. Most of the changes are implementable in your humble kitchen. I have seen over 300 clients who have received many benefits in chronic conditions (see testimonials below).
A 15-minute introductory call to assess if these services are a fit for your needs. There is no charge for this. This call is mandatory before I accept any appointment requests for the paid services below.
If you have never been to my practice before, you will need to make a commitment for 3 appointments. Other forms of appointments are offered only to those who have completed the full Yukti series.
The first Yukti appointment is focused on understanding your constitution and current state while taking into account your full medical history. This appointment is for 60-75 minutes. Following this, I will do in-depth Ayurvedic research on your situation, consulting the Ayurvedic texts as necessary, and prepare a diagnosis and Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle plan.
The second Yukti appointment, within two weeks of the first appointment, is focused on explaining your Ayurvedic diagnosis and Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle plan and making practical adjustments as necessary. This appointment is for 30-45 minutes.
The third and final Yukti appointment, within one month of the second appointment, is focused on reviewing how the Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle plan has worked for you and making course corrections as necessary. This appointment is for 20-30 minutes.
After the second appointment and before the third appointment, I will be able to accommodate at most two emails focused on clarifying any of my recommendations. I am not set up for emergency support with Ayurveda, or further communication beyond the two emails mentioned above. I might share my phone number to make coordination for the appointments easier, but I am not set up to support clients over text messages or over the phone outside of the three appointments mentioned above. Please note that I give my recommendations in detailed written form and go over it in detail during our appointment.
You may sign up for this if you have already completed a Yukti series in the last 6 months. This is to offer ongoing support when clients need more service beyond the three Yukti appointments. I can answer at most two emails within 30 days of this appointment to clarify any recommendations given.
If more than six months have passed since our last follow-up, you will need to sign up for a series of two appointments, the first of which will involve a shorter intake like in the Yukti appointment series. The second appointment will involve providing the diagnosis and diet and lifestyle plan. I can answer at most two emails within 30 days of the second appointment to clarify any recommendations given.

I had the problem of not being able to digest milk. Conventional doctors had suggested taking it out of my diet. When I went to Geetanjali, she clearly explained how milk is heavy and how it can be mixed with therapeutic kitchen spices and cooked to remove the heaviness and make it easy for digestion. She suggested a spiced-milk recipe that makes the milk more digestible and, surprisingly, it worked. Something that has been troubling me for last eleven years is now resolved!

Ghee is such an important part of our health. I would always discard it as a fat-increasing substance. But she explained what an important role it played in lubricating the stomach and making bowel movement easier. Earlier I would have to drink a few glasses of water and wait and sometimes it would not work, but now, taking ghee with milk has removed my constipation as well.

I had suffered from knee pain since 4 yrs, was restricted to perform some of my regular activities. After consulting Dr. Shaaranya in 3 meetings, I was able to find a huge difference in my performance. It was no medication, but merely change in my diet in the daily routine, since she diagnosed me with increase in vata dosha. To rectify the imbalance, I just followed her given regimen about my daily food intake for about 6 months and a regular follow up.Thanks a bunch Dr. for your patiently listening to me and helping me to follow your suggestions. You have made me stronger to believe even more in Ayurveda.
Anxiety & Inability to Focus
Jim, 38, San Jose
In the last four years, I was noticing a lot of anxiety, getting angry, uneasiness, heaviness of head, cracking in my bones, and an inability to focus. I was not able to find the reason for that. I was eating salad and lot of raw foods thinking that raw is good for my body. She said - "But that is increasing your VATA". Oh, so I was doing the opposite of what was good for me! I am following what she said and it is working for me. Now I am calmer and able to focus. She solved all of that by just making proper diet and lifestyle changes.

I had been suffering from hyperacidity for many months. I was experimenting with different things to counter this problem; BC 25, Mediterranean diet, salads, cereal with cold milk for breakfast. BC 25 helped but the Mediterranean diet did not. I followed Vaidya Shaaranya’s recommendation of switching to Sunflower oil, eating more bitter and astringent vegetables, eating ghee upto 3 tbsp. daily, eating cooked food, and avoiding fermented food. It was not difficult to follow these recommendations. I followed them for about 6 weeks. I now have less frequent flare-ups of acidity (down from daily to 1-2 times a week). I even like the changes that I made to my diet. It's great to know what effects various foods have on acidity, and I enjoy eating the foods that work better for me. I don't need to take acidity medicine that frequently. As a result of this experience with Ayurveda, I feel more informed and aligned with my dietary needs.
