“Food heals.” That’s the mantra of nutritionist and school health aide, Sheela Mahdavi. It’s a philosophy that became relevant to Mahdavi when she was diagnosed as “pre-diabetic” as a teenager.

First step: Experiment on yourself. Learn how different foods work with your body. Experience will provide lessons that will enable you to teach others.

Instead of relying on medication, Mahdavi began experimenting with how different foods made her body feel, swapping out processed or blatantly unhealthy items for fresher, more nutritious options.
