I’m Dr. Thanu, the mother of a beautiful newborn girl and the wife of an incredible doctor. Hooman to two rambunctious dogs. I am a second-generation Ayurvedic doctor, qualified nutritionist, and professional psychotherapist.
Through workshops, consultations, and social media, I assist stressed millennials in deliberately healing from anxiety and depression and becoming the greatest version of themselves in a holistic approach by providing simple and easy-to-follow actions.
I am a millennial who grew up in a typical Indian family watching Scooby-Doo, playing Super Mario, and competing with my peers as if my life depended on it.
I was under a lot of pressure from myself, my family, and society to succeed in everything. “Compete, Race, Go Forward, Don’t Stop Until You Reach Your Goal,” were the slogans repeated in front of a seventh-grade student. Where I didn’t even know what I wanted to do with my life. You can image how things progressed from there.
We were all racing. Years passed, but the racing did not. The comparison to others didn’t end with one goal after another. The fear of failure did not go away. The fruitless chase continued.
After I finished medical school, real life caught up with me. I didn’t know how to live without racing, but I didn’t have the energy to do so anymore.
I just felt hollow and aimless. I gradually lost sleep, lost my appetite, and was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety. I was on medication for a year. They aided my sleep, although I slept throughout the day and night. I couldn’t get out of bed for several days. I hadn’t seen anyone other than my immediate relatives in months.
One day, I decided to discontinue my medications and take that one small step toward learning more about my mental health. I read books, listened to lectures, and took one step every day. One step at a time.
Then I finished my diploma in Food & Nutrition, then my diploma in Psychotherapy, and now I’m on my way to pursue a Masters in Psychology to learn more!
From a point where I couldn’t assist myself, I am now in a position where I have helped hundreds of individuals just like myself.
I am a millennial, and I understand the anguish and strain that comes with being a millennial.
My goal is to de-stigmatize mental health and assist as many millennials as possible in understanding their minds and learning how to recover.
But I was still lagging behind because I wanted to assist folks like myself but didn’t know how to get out to more people. I had a lot of trouble being consistent on social media. I am a very bashful individual. I have a desire to make videos. I tried some as well, but it was excruciatingly painful. One video went viral, garnering over a million views as well as some criticism. I couldn’t handle any more online hate and quit doing it entirely. I didn’t have any direction on how to interpret my desire.
I found folks that are similar to me. A really helpful community. It’s astonishing how much comfort there is in knowing you’re not alone. Weekly masterclasses keep me motivated, while the regular school provides a roadmap for how to progress.
The step-by-step approach of shyness to magnificence makes it easier to appear on film. I am getting asked for interviews just by pursuing a micro-niche, and everyone who follows me and joins me on this trip has a clear concept of how I can assist them. I’m preparing to create a new website as well as a new brand. I wouldn’t have had the guts to do it if it hadn’t been for Imtows. Becoming a competent doctor is no longer enough these days; being a successful entrepreneur necessitates a wide range of abilities, which I am gradually developing. I’m learning a lot about how business is more than simply business; it’s also a service with a purpose. It’s allowing me to go deeper into my faith.
