I’ve been a long journey to get to this stage of my life with a wonderful, natural health online store. It’s something I always wanted to do; to help improve people’s health and so I decided to find the best health products in the market. My interest in alternative health started many years ago via my parents. Dad would subscribe to all kinds of health newsletters which I would read avidly and Mum would use traditional Ayurvedic spices for healing. I felt priviledged to have the best of both worlds, East and West and wanted to incorporate these two elements into my online store.

But first, a little background about myself. My heritage is Indian but I grew up and lived in Uganda, East Africa for the first 6 years of my life. In 1972 I moved to the UK and lived in London for many years before moving to Toronto, Canada in 1998. After completing my studies at Benenden School in Kent and at the L’Institut Francais du Royaume-Uni/University of Lille in French and Business, I worked in Public Relations for Not-for-Profits in cancer research and for blind and visually impaired citizens. Years later, I wanted to do something for myself and so I created www.esmeandsita.com.

“Esme” and “Sita” embody the best in Eastern and Western traditions and my wish is to introduce to you the ancient science of Ayurveda (known as the Science of Life) and the ancient yoga traditions of my ancestors …something that the West is only now coming to understand. For over 5000 years, Yoga and Ayurveda have been intrinsically associated – mind, body, soul and balance.

It’s taken painstaking effort to source the supplements and products for esmeandsita.com. I wanted to make sure that they are the very best that one can find anywhere. Pure, unadulterated and effective for your health.

Please join me in this journey for good health and wellness. It’s my passion and I want to share it with you.
