Hi there,

I'm Vanessa Leite, and I'm on a journey fueled by my passion for holistic therapies and the art of effective communication. Join me on this exciting blog where I bring together the best of both worlds. But first, let me give you a glimpse into my background:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram

I hold a degree in Biological Sciences, a master's degree in Parasitology, and a specialization in Microbiology. In 2017, I worked as a clinical research assistant in a hospital that focused on testing new drugs for patients with autoimmune diseases like lupus, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis. My work involved assisting doctors during consultations, providing necessary support, and working closely with the Clinical Research coordinator.


During my experience, I closely observed the patients and their suffering, which was often caused by side effects from the tested drugs. I also realized the significant role that emotions played in the development and prognosis of autoimmune diseases. For instance, a patient with psoriasis showed improvements but suddenly worsened after a relative's death. On another occasion, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis displayed a significant improvement due to positive changes in her life. Doctors also observed these improvements. I also noticed that patients who were happy to receive treatment and had strong beliefs in the effectiveness of the medicine showed the most short-term improvements.


This experience inspired me to learn more about autoimmune diseases and the factors that trigger them. I have always been intrigued by how our immune system attacks our own body. While Western medicine is undoubtedly crucial in treating autoimmune diseases and other illnesses, I found all the answers I was looking for in Ayurveda. Ayurveda considers the human being as a whole, including mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, this ancient medicine system is based on individualized therapies, as each person is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all treatment.


I strongly believe in the benefits that Ayurveda can offer to patients facing autoimmune diseases. As part of my commitment to this holistic approach, I have decided to create a blog to share the insights and knowledge I have been gaining. Currently, I am dedicated to the training course to become an Ayurvedic therapist at the respected Yoga Brahma Vidyalaya school. Additionally, I hold a certificate as a "Health Instructor" from the Chopra Institute, where I had the honor of learning from renowned Ayurvedic doctors from India, including Deepak Chopra himself.


My main focus for this blog is to provide valuable information on how Ayurveda and other holistic therapies can help people with autoimmune diseases. Additionally, I will provide insights on how we can prevent diseases in general and achieve a long, healthy, and happy life.
