I was able to heal my body with the right food and lifestyle choices for me. I will guide you as you embark on this journey to Optimal Health. What are you waiting for?
It was the summer of 2010. I was entering Menopause. My gut was a mess. I was a mess. Everything I ate made me feel bloated. I was constipated one day fine the next day. I was tired all the time. My mood was no longer stable. I stopped trusting my body. My reaction to food was all over the place. I was always skinny but all of a sudden I started adding some pounds! I went to so many doctors. The most irritating part of it all was my symptoms were dismissed as something trivial!READ MORE
What Our Clients Say
Anu changed my life for the better this past year! She was exactly what I needed to get back into shape and learn what my body really needed! The reason Anu’s method works is because she doesn’t just tell you what you need to do; she actually helps YOU decide on your own goals. It’s easier to slip through the cracks if you are just following someone else’s orders! Anu empowered me to be my own boss and set simple goals each week. Then she worked closely with me making sure I’m held accountable for what I decided that week. She called me, texted me, was always available for questions and most importantly she helped me with meal planning! Anu went above and beyond and even sent me a list of ingredients I needed to buy at the store every weekend to make sure I had everything I needed to make my meals. This way I had no excuse!! She treated me as a whole person and looked at my digestive issues, food sensitivities/allergies, emotional well-being and much more! The goals I have been wanting to reach for the past two years but never actually started working on them since “life happens” (I just didn’t think I knew how to or had time to work on them), Anu made me reach them in less than 6 months and that too during a pandemic! Anu not only helped me reach my goal but she also gave me all the necessary ingredients to understand how to maintain this new “lifestyle” even though I’m done with her program! Anu is patient, kind, sweet, knowledgeable and most importantly was and is on my side to see me achieve greatness!Dr. D.3/03/2021
I approached Anu about 6 months ago because I was tired of struggling with the weight I had gained over the years and I wanted to get healthy. Working with Anu I have lost over 28 lbs, lowered my blood pressure and cholesterol through diet and lifestyle modifications. I have learned healthy ways to cook for myself. The most significant change I have noticed is my increased energy. The best thing about working with Anu is she is always available for her clients and helps us find answers. Today I am more aware of my health and how a healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle has affected my health positively. I would wholeheartedly recommend Anu.Priscilla M.12/01/2020
When I first reached out to Anu I was mentally sluggish, overmedicated for my thyroid condition and was struggling with high blood pressure and high blood sugar. Within 60 days my A1 c went down from 5.7 to 5.3 and I was able to get off the medication . The most significant overall change that people in my life noticed is weight loss of over 40 pounds. I was thrilled with my general wellbeing that included smoother skin and no more headaches. The best thing I loved about working with Anu is she educates you , always helps you understand the why behind any suggestions. I have learned lifelong habits that are now a mindless routine- second nature! There is so much value in working with Anu . I would wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone. I loved that there was nothing canned about her approach to my specific needs and her passion for her client’s well being is so obvious.Gayle F.9/01/2020
I instantly felt safe working with Anu, she was extremely caring, vigilant, and adaptive to my non-vegan lifestyle and personal goals and needs. She listened to my concerns and helped me find the root of what was causing me such severe pain and discomfort. I highly recommend Anu if you would like to gain clarity, knowledge and regain control over your body as a whole. I am grateful for the experience and awareness.Molly W.3/20/2020
Understanding that I can use food to heal myself was an incredibly powerful realization and put me in control of my own health.

I not only feel better, but I have also seen NOTABLE IMPROVEMENTS IN MY METABOLISM with RESULTING IN WEIGHT LOSS. The bonus is that Anu has been a pleasure to work with in this whole process, and I GLADLY RECOMMEND HER to friends and colleagues!Rachel S.3/20/2020
In my busy Pilates studio I always talk to my clients about their overall wellbeing. When I feel that they might need some extra help with their diet, I am very happy to refer them to Anu Simh since I know that she will care for them as much as I do and that they WILL BENEFIT ENORMOUSLY from her WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE. She is thorough with her research and KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT BOTH TRADITIONAL and NEW METHODS to reach optimum health. She is intuitive about the underlying reasons for their issues and couples that with a scientific approach to getting them well. There are many strings to Anu’s bow and one of these is being an excellent cook. If you only learnt some of her recipes you would already be well on the way to eating healthily and feeling cleaner from the inside out. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANU.Fiona A.3/20/2020
When I met Anu I felt tired, fat and sluggish. My cholesterol and A1 C were both high. Since I’ve seen Anu, (3 months), both my cholesterol and A1C have lowered significantly. I feel so much lighter in my body! I HAVE MORE ENERGY! I'VE LOST 10lbs! My belly is flatter and I don’t feel bloated. I wanted a lifestyle change and I feel Anu fulfilled that completely. She takes into thought my complete life and my goals and integrates everything I want into a COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ESPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR ME. I am so impressed with her knowledge, education, approach and how wonderful it is to work with her. She is worth talking to! She even gives a 30 minute FREE consultation! You have nothing to lose (but a few pounds haha!) so schedule your 30 min consultation today ! My experience with Anu has been a great one. I have gained so much knowledge about my nutrition, food and how it affects my body. Every person who cares about their health should go see her. SHE IS THE REAL DEAL!Lisa W.3/20/2020
I was struggling with Constipation, weight gain, concern over high fat vs low fat foods and a pending kidney donation when I reached out to Anu. I lost 16 LBS, have a far more regular digestion, a stable protocol of supplements, a successful kidney donation and a commitment to healthy eating. The most significant thing I noticed in my work with Anu is my healing has vastly improved because of a healed gut and lowered inflammation. Anu is positive, kind and has an endless knowledge of the human body. I’m glad I’ve dispelled incorrect myths about protein and trust I can get adequate protein from eating plant based. I would recommend Anu wholeheartedly. She has a wealth of knowledge and is an excellent teacher.Sandra3/20/2020
I am excited to share my journey to health and happiness! I met Anu at a business meeting and was instantly captivated by her. She looked healthy, feminine, and beautiful, I on the other hand sat there in my chair with overwhelming fatigue. I imagined what life would be like to be her. I wanted her energy and light! My name is Kelly Clifford, I am a 43 years old and I am a hairdresser. My energy level was in the tanks. My diet was awful, eating a lot of processed food. Hamburgers, burritos, etc. Worse off I had no groceries in my fridge. My fight or flight mentality had me eating on the run all the time. The repercussion of living that way caused complete disruption in my body. I wasn’t enjoying food or my body I was swollen and constipated all the time. I once told Anu if I can poop everyday I would consider that a miracle. Anu taught me about food. Whole natural food. Greens, proteins, and how to take time for myself to eat slowly and mindfully. Since following Anu’s program I have learned to use food as fuel and stop eating things that cause inflammation in my body. I am happy to say I now drink 72 ounces of water and my food choices are completely healthier. Her coaching and teachings helped pave the way for a brighter future with endurance! I must add I now poop every morning! I am super grateful I met Anu and will hold her in high regard as a teacher on my journey!Kelly C.3/20/2020
