Back to Beginnings / Who We Are

Anil Grover

Functional Medicine Health Coach

AFMC Practitioner


Anil, the founder of Back To Beginnings, has a strong passion for a proactive and holistic approach to health, which stems from his personal experiences with his mother’s, wife’s, and friend’s cancer journey. He is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and experiences to educate, inspire, and empower others to take charge of their health and well-being. Witnessing the pain and suffering caused by terminal cancer motivated him to delve into research and study nutrition, coaching, and functional medicine. Anil personally struggled with gastrointestinal and fibromyalgia issues for many years, finding limited relief through conventional medicine. It was only through integrative functional medicine, which focused on radical lifestyle changes, nutrition, and perspective shift, that he was able to successfully heal not just the symptoms but also the root causes of his ailments.

Anil has guided numerous individuals in overcoming various health challenges, including gastrointestinal distress, autoimmune issues, thyroid problems, fatigue, and more. His approach to personalized care involves addressing lifestyle, nutrition, advanced functional lab testing, if necessary, targeted nutraceuticals, and mainly, mind-body practices. These combined efforts help patients achieve optimal health and wellness and experience a renewed sense of vitality.

One of Anil’s fundamental beliefs is the significance of epigenetics and how our beliefs and emotions can impact gene expression and overall health. He emphasizes that by understanding this relationship, individuals can make lifestyle choices and cultivate a mindset that positively influences their genetic makeup.

Anil recognizes the profound influence of positive energy, such as love, joy, compassion, and gratitude, on healing and overall well-being. These energies have the power to reduce stress, enhance immune function, and improve digestion. Having practiced meditation for the past three decades, Anil strongly advocates for the interconnectedness of spiritual and physical well-being. He believes that achieving harmony and coherence at a spiritual/conscious level is vital for facilitating the body’s natural healing processes. Anil’s holistic approach to healing encompasses addressing the underlying spiritual, emotional, and psychological aspects alongside physical symptoms, thus supporting individuals on their journey toward overall well-being and harnessing their innate healing abilities.

Anil recognizes the prevalence of diseases, including cancer, in today’s world due to unavoidable toxicity in food, relationships, suppressed unprocessed negative emotions, trauma, and the environment. His practice emphasizes the importance of prophylaxis and establishing a healthy lifestyle to prevent disease. He believes that radical lifestyle changes may even reverse or “turn off” certain conditions. Anil’s goal as a healthcare professional is to educate and guide individuals to live healthy lives from a holistic, integrative perspective. He aims to empower people to maintain their health, prevent disease, or support them in their fight against existing illnesses. Anil measures his success not by accolades or financial gains, but by the number of lives he has inspired, added value to, and improved through his work.

Preeti Ayyappan

IINHC - Nutrition Coach and Lifestyle Aligner

Preeti coaches on nutrition and lifestyle.

Nutrition Coaching

As a nutrition coach, I provide you with guidance and answers so you can learn how to eat well, fuel your body with the foods you need and eat right for certain health conditions as well as heal your relationship with food. As part of the coaching process, I provide ongoing support, virtual sessions, and personalized plans to support your wellness through comprehensive health goals.

Weight Management

Diet and exercise need to be balanced in order to achieve successful weight loss. You can exercise as much as you’d like but if you are not eating healthy, you will not receive the full benefit of weight loss, and vice versa. We can educate you on incorporating healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle and create an individualized plan to achieve your goals. 

Eating for Health

Detoxing will clear out toxins from your body and give your digestive system a break to heal and restore naturally, before introducing new eating habits and food. Your lifestyle and how you view food will drastically alter how effective weight loss and detox work. Our goal is to set you up for success and shift the way you relate to food. 

Preeti has been educated at the following institutions;

  • Institute of Integrative Nutrition, New York.
  • Positive Psychiatry and Mental health from the University of Sydney

Sheetal Arora

Holistic Yoga and Health Educator

I’m a yoga teacher and Holistic Health educator. I enjoy teaching Yoga and Pranayama for health and like to add elements of Tai Chi, Tapping, Aerobics, and Chakras to my sessions. I also educate people on healthy living by aligning their lifestyles with the laws of nature. Anything in its natural form is easily available, free and so powerful and that inspires me to help people recognize, realize and connect to their original nature of the soul, body, and mother nature.

Having gone through cancer myself, I now understand the importance of having a clean healthy environment within our bodies which I emphasize a lot through detoxification. I like introducing fasting programs and more simple ways to regularly detox our bodies.

Sheetal is certified in Health & integrative lifestyle, Naturopathy, and Yoga. She also holds a certificate in Psycho Neurobics (chakra healing).
