Ritu Kapoor: A Proficient Guide to Your Health Journey

Ritu Kapoor, Founder

The world of nutrition is centered on a fundamental truth – you are what you eat. We humans are comprised of around 40 trillion cells in our body and over 100 trillion microbes in our gut, and all of these thrive on what we consume. Simply put, what we consume can make or break us. The right diet can strengthen our immune system, boost our energy levels, improve our mood, and heal us to the optimal best. But we often ignore it or are simply overwhelmed with the sheer volume of diet plans out there. Even when we follow some diet plan it’s done mostly without realizing the root cause of our issues of weight gain/other lifestyle problems.

Unlike the fleeting promises of fad diets, we need dietitians and nutritionists who offer science-backed approaches to health. Among such reliable nutritionists, Ritu Kapoor of Wellnation360 is a safe and trustworthy hand. Whether helping people to lose weight, control hormonal issues, take control of lifestyle disorders, or to resolve some perplexing health issues, through Wellnation360, she focuses on holistic healing with the right food, so that you can lead a happy and healthy life.

A Purposeful Venture

Ritu’s journey into the nutrition industry was inspired by her fundamental observation of the nature-gifted profound ability of the human body to heal itself when provided with the right nutrients. This philosophy fuels her mission to help patients achieve optimal health through personalized dietary plans.

She holds a Bachelor's degree in Botany, laying the seeds for her nutritional journey as plants are known to be the source of many essential nutrients. She then pursued a Master's in Biotechnology, specializing in animal tissue culture. Witnessing firsthand how cells thrive or struggle based on the nutrients they receive in their environment, she realized the transformative power of proper nutrition.

While on a career break to take care of her family, she began to focus on providing the right nutrients to people at home, which became a newfound interest that made her complete a certificate course in nutrition. The fascination with the science of food and its impact on health led her to complete her second Master's degree, this time focused on nutrition and dietetics, equipping her to guide others toward achieving sustainable health outcomes.
Her passion for entrepreneurship comes from seeing how nutrition is undervalued in conventional medicine. She remarks, “While working in a hospital, I noticed that nutrition was looked at as an add-on or subsidiary field, forgetting that it is the very basis of health”. This conviction led her to become a registered dietician and eventually launch her private practice, Wellnation360 – emphasizing holistic wellness.

Holistic & Personalized Care

Ritu doesn’t follow a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, instead tailors the plans based on a client's unique background, lifestyle, and challenges. She delves deeper than just food habits, investigating factors like sleep habits, stress levels, exercise routines, blood work, and more. She very often also utilizes body composition analysis to understand the client's body fat and muscle mass ratios. This comprehensive approach allows her to design a plan that addresses the client's specific needs and goals.

She considers all aspects of well-being, creates client-centred plans to fit individual needs, and prioritizes sustainable plans that can become a way of life. She doesn't just address symptoms but seeks to identify the underlying causes of health concerns. Ritu uses an in-depth questioning methodology to gain a complete picture about her clients to be able to deliver highly effective health plans. Follow-up consultations ensure clients stay on track and receive continuous support.

Ritu likes to prioritize longterm, sustainable practices that fit into each client's unique lifestyle

Sustainable Habits for Lasting Results

Ritu tackles common issues that can hinder a person's health journey. She understands the importance of quality sleep and emphasizes getting enough rest, particularly between 10 pm and 2 am when the body does most of its repair work. She also discourages unhealthy eating habits like relying on takeout, fried foods, and processed snacks, highlighting the dangers of trans fats lurking in these choices.

She remarks, “Although air-fried or baked alternatives seem okay, it is a simple ‘No’ because of radiation and high temperature affecting the nutrition. It can turn out to be harmful as well”. Recognizing that many people struggle with time constraints, she offers practical health tips for her perennially busy clients. These might include walking while taking office calls, or short walk breaks between work throughout the day to stay active.

She focuses on creating long-term plans that clients can realistically maintain. This might involve providing easy-to-follow recipes that can be prepared quickly at home with readily available ingredients. Ritu works with clients to make small, sustainable changes that eventually lead to lasting results. Furthermore, she is committed to ensuring that her services remain accessible to all and charges specific consultation-based fees instead of offering monolithic and somewhat redundant packages, which include a follow-up session within 15 days.

Looking forward, Ritu is constantly exploring new ways to improve her practice and better serve her clients. She's interested in exploring cellular health assessments to gain a more precise understanding of a client's nutritional needs. Additionally, she believes that microbiome screening could allow her to analyze gut bacteria and create dietary plans to improve gut health, which plays an important role even in ailments related to neurological diseases. DNA screening is another potential tool that could provide valuable and accurate insights into a client's specific needs and help planning a personalized diet.
