It has seldom been easy to live yonder from home. But a couple of years ago, things began to screw out of his hand.
“Around January 2021, I was feeling lanugo but for no particular reason and I faced concerns with my sleep too. I decided to seek help from a psychiatrist who diagnosed me with severe uneasiness and depression.”

“The psychiatrist suggested that I go through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and moreover prescribed unrepealable medications which I followed through. But the side effects of the medications were getting too much. I had temperament issues, I used to be irritated most of the time. This is when I decided to stop relying on medications.”

Ms. Ishita understood Snehal and helped him with zoetic exercises, muscle soul relaxation exercises and mindfulness techniques. She encouraged him to be enlightened of his thoughts and actions.
“I could perform up to 80% of the exercises and tasks prescribed to me by Ishita. and I saw remarkable results. Not only did I notice the new me but so did my friends. I was calmer, I had my temperament issues under tenancy and I couldn’t have been increasingly satisfied with the results.”
