Hi! I’m Mayuri

I guide people towards a balanced lifestyle using a holistic approach to anxiety management and sugar cravings.

My Story 

Obtaining a Degree in Fine Arts and having run a Silkscreen printing studio and home decor business for 7 years I have a strong direction towards the arts and the creative side of life. But when my dad was experiencing strange symptoms I found myself in a google nightmare and diagnosed him with dementia before the Doctors did. 

It was that year that I attempted 90 days of being sugar free, gluten free, caffeine and alcohol free as well as dairy free. Needless to say I only lasted a mere 45 days. Learning about dementia I knew I did not want that to be my destiny and having similar gut issues and lack of mathematic skills to my dad I had this strong sense that I needed to start protecting myself.  

Since that year (2014) I was determined to get to 90 days, I only reached it in 2016 but I had made substantial changes to my diet. I had lost weight and reduced my IBS pain and flare ups by at least 70%. In those years my mom had a stent fitted and was soon diagnosed with a marriage of lupus and scleroderma and my dementia traumatised dad had a stroke that took his speech and 85% of his cognitive function. 

A month before my dad had his stroke my anxiety and depression was at its worst. I was watching my business of 7 years fall apart slowly, my mom had just finished 9 months of Chemotherapy for her Scleroderma. And my Mum in law moved in with us. I was eating well, not drinking much alcohol and having minimal caffeine. But my anger, anxiety, frustration were at an all time high. My IBS worsened and I developed inflammation in my hands and feet. My dads’ stroke changed my life. Negatively and positively. I saw my strengths and still see my weaknesses. I was diagnosed with PTSD 6 months later – a combination of losing my home space, my business, the man I knew as my father and the realisation that building my own family was not going to happen for a while. 

The home next to mine became available and so my mom purchased it and moved in next door with my dad. Once they were settled (6 different caregivers and a completely new interior later) I sat with no job, no studio and a garage full to the brim with two retail stores and my studio. I was scared, overwhelmed and angry at the world. My friends started to fall away as they started building and growing their own families. I was hurting so much. 


But I managed to still wake up….
