SPICES: THE POWER OF HEALING
Updated: Nov 15, 2019
Dr. Sangani has been practicing Internal Medicine for the last 15 years. For the past 8 years she has been a concierge physician at The Village Doctor in Woodside, CA. In addition to her medical training at the University of Rochester Medical School, and UC Berkeley for her Masters in Public Health, Prerana studied with an Ayurvedic practitioner in India while in Medical School and Residency. Growing up in the US, her culture influenced her greatly, especially when it came to food. Her mom, a vegetarian, prepared delicious Gujarati food every day and Prerana learned to cook her own combination of Indian and American dishes over the years. As she learned the principles of Ayurveda and homeopathy, the healing properties of many of the spices used in Indian cooking became clear. Turmeric, fenugreek, cumin and ajwain all have centuries of medicinal uses and the incorporation into food not only adds flavor but also health benefits. Prerana has enjoyed incorporating the Eastern influences into her daily practice of Internal Medicine.
At SOUL food salon, Prerana is looking forward to sharing some of the science behind the healing nature of spices. She will prepare some tasty and flavorful Indian dishes too.
