It healed mine…
A few months ago I travelled to India where I discovered the healing power of Ayurveda. For over 5,000 years, Ayurveda treatments have been practiced throughout the world. Originating in the state of Kerella in India, this ancient science of life and longevity aims to restore imbalances whilst promoting the flow of prana (known as vital energy) within the body and mind.
I came back to Sydney and I was so delighted to know that I could incorporate this technique into my life here at home. I discovered the healing house, The Ayurvedic Wellness Centre in Bondi Junction.
What beautiful people who work there!
A little bit of heaven on earth!
Ayurveda is holistic approach that looks at each person as an individual within their own body type (prakruti) and current health condition (vikruti) and an appropriate treatment is engaged for the body to experience.
Why do we need this healing? Because we live in a toxic world….
Modern living places additional pressures on the body to perform. Not only on it physically but also mentally. Stress and toxins contribute to the production of the hormone Cortisol in the body.
Cortisol pollutes the blood and reduces the proper functioning of the immune system and even the nervous system. This is when we begin to feel sluggish, run-down, tired and irritable. Other symptoms of Cortisol pollution include weight-gain, skin conditions and a lack of mental clarity and poor creativity.
In addition, impurities can also pollute our bodies. These are usually caused by bad diets and poor digestion and result in large molecules being absorbed that the body can’t process. If these are clogging the body, it can’t absorb vitamins, minerals proteins etc. that it needs. What’s more vital organs, like the liver, can’t function properly. Overall, toxins and impurities can have a negative “domino effect” on your health and mental wellbeing.
Ayurveda can help you detox these toxins!
Suffering from fatigue, depression, unwanted weight gain, stress, anxiety?
I highly recommend the Shirodhara and Abhyanga body treatments.
An out of body experience. It connects the body and mind at a very deep level.
Benefits of Shirodhara and Abhyanga:
Remember, a rested body is a healthy body.
Ayurveda helps you active your parasympathetic nervous system-the rest and repair. Most of us are dominated by our sympathetic nervous system- fight and flight. This is the main cause of hormonal imbalances and various health issues in my opinion. It throws your digestion out!

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time. My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.
With kindest regards Samantha
I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.
When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.
I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.
Hey Jessica! I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again
I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!
Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.
Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!
I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).
I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
My fiancé bought your book and we have cooked some of your meals. Amazing! I love your outlook on a healthy lifestyle and your hints and tips with preparing tasty meals are fantastic. Thanks for reviving us to live a healthier lifestyle and get our bodies wedding ready.
I want to empower you to make good choices, every day. I want you to enhance your understanding of health and nutrition. I'm committed to making sure you live the best life. Because you deserve it. Are you ready to start feeling great?
