Q1. How did you begin your journey in the Health & Wellness Industry? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

Health & wellness is something i have always been interested in since childhood. My grandfather was a doctor and I too always aspired to be one. The complexity yet simplicity of the human body has always been an interest for me. Also, my strong belief that food and lifestyle are your first line of medicine made me further pursue my aspiration to become a qualified consulting nutritionist. Hence, I completed my Bachelors of Homoeopathy Medicine & Surgery and furthermore did my Diploma in Nutrition and Dietetics and have been practicing in this field since almost 10 years now.

Q2. Kindly share about your Business/profession, products and services.

I am the founder of Nutrish by Dr.Moyna, where I consult for Nutrition as well as lifestyle coaching. With the correct diet and nutrition, we help lots of patients control or even reverse their clinical conditions like Thyroid, Cholesterol, Pcos, Hypertension, Diabetes and nutritional deficiencies. We also provide nutrition counseling for pregnancy, lactation and children.

Q3. How do your products/services stand out differently from others available in the market?

At Nutrish, we believe in a wholesome, well balanced sustainable diet pattern. We educate our patients about the correct nutrition and how to make it a lifestyle. We do not believe in going "on" & "off" diets. Also, as the tag line of Nutrish states, "Healthier Meals, Happier You". We incorporate your likes, dislikes and traditional food in your daily diet as per your lifestyle.

Q4. Kindly share about few of your key products/services that are contributing to the Health and Wellness Industry?

Nutrish contributes to the Health and Wellness industry by providing a sound knowledge of the basics of food and how to use food as the first line of medicine. Consulting online and offline, we have a global reach, making Nutrish available to you wherever you are at your convenience.

Q5. What type of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

During the start of my brand Nutrish, the main challenge I faced was that I was stepping into an industry where already too much is going on. Widespread information, though not always correct, is available online. Getting people to understand that diets are individualistic and cannot be copied because someone else is doing it was a struggle. Today, the food & health industry is big. Too much is going on in the name of "diet" and "healthy food". Getting dedicated clients in a small private set up practice is a challenge. 

Q6. Kindly share about your discovery period when you were facing challenges in your business?

What I discovered during the initial challenges while establishing Nutrish is that social media presence is necessary. Also, making sure you are backed by sound knowledge and perseverance is important.

Q7. Kindly share a few of your experiments you did based on your discovery to overcome those challenges?

I slowly established myself on social media. I constantly make an effort to upgrade my knowledge by taking courses, reading and staying updated with the latest developments in the health and wellness industry.

Q8. What would be your future contributions to the Health & Wellness Industry that would eventually make a difference to humankind?

I am to make eating a simple process. Eating is an instinct we are born with. Today, the food industry and social media has made "dieting" a fad and so complicated. I aim at improving my patients relationship with food. A better food psychology and the correct knowledge about food.

Q9. What changes do you anticipate in the Health & Wellness Industry in the next five years?

A lot of shift and acceptance towards online consultation in the health industry is something that will happen a lot more in the next few years. A more sustainable lifestyle is what and emphasis on fitness is what I anticipate.

Q10. What would be your advice/suggestion to new Wellness professionals who want to start and sustain in the business?

Sustaining in the health and wellness industry takes a lot of dedication and perseverance. Also, sound knowledge is essential and constantly upgrading yourself is important. Do not get carried away by the vast display of health & wellness online.
