Hi, I'm Nomita, I'm the founder of Coco Glo. I'm a Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach + Mineral Therapy Consultant. I teach women how to improve their skin and gut health by using food as medicine, Ayurveda and natural remedies.
My fascination with beauty began in my teens when I watched my beautiful mother pamper her skin by applying homemade face masks, do facial exercises and drink beauty elixirs blended with rejuvenating Indian spices. I also often noted the beauty routines of other women that had flawless skin and read numerous books on the ancient science of Ayurveda and its relationship with beauty. I was curious to know what was the 'secret' to being magnetically radiant?
I used to suffer from skin and gut issues. I struggled with it for years. I was overweight, and in my desperate attempt to lose the weight, I decided to go on a crash diet. I managed to shed the excess weight; I lost 45 lbs!
I was diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance (PCOD) in my early twenties which led to chronic acne flare up's, poor digestion, and I put on some of the weight that I had lost. I tried several conventional medical therapies and unable to find a 'cure' it prompted me to look at alternative solutions. I soon immersed in the self-healing knowledge of Ayurveda and holistic nutrition.
"Within four months of implementing customised healing foods, herbs, and making lifestyle changes my gut healed, my hormones functioned optimally, I lost weight and my skin completely cleared! The harsh dieting in the past was the root cause of my health issues; it weakened my 'Agni' ( digestive fire in Ayurveda), which was related to my hormonal imbalance, acne and weight gain"
This transforming experience made me realise that food is medicine and that there is a profound synergy between the gut and skin. It encouraged me to explore my passion and study holistic nutrition at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition, Ayurveda and other techniques that invoke self-healing.
Over the years, I've helped numerous women improve their health, gut and skin . My unique approach enables you to heal inside out, by gently detoxing your body and nourishing it with the right foods (customised to your unique mind/body type), natural remedies and by implementing the principles of Ayurveda. I don't believe in crash diets, over-exercising, fasting too often or anything extreme!
Apart from my 1:1 Nutrition Coaching, I enjoy spreading awareness through workshops, articles and am a contributor to mindbodygreen. My Recipes and blogs posts have appeared on numerous websites such as Spice Box Organics, LIV and Well Magazine, and I've been interviewed by Harper's Bazaar and Green Queen.
