Dr. Ronesh Sinha, a physician at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, promotes healthful living among the South Asian population. His new book, “The South Asian Health Solution,” includes nutritious recipes.
When you think of the South Asian or Asian Indian culture, you may think of nutritious vegetarian diets and stress-reduction techniques such as yoga and meditation. But as this population’s lifestyle deviates from its ancient health wisdom and practices, chronic health issues are on the rise.
Dr. Ronesh Sinha, a Palo Alto Medical Foundation internal medicine physician and Los Altos resident, is author of the book “The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease” (Primal Nutrition Inc., 2014). The book provides a wellness plan for people of South Asian ancestry living in the United States, India and around the world.
