Pushpa Soundararajan, BS
Pushpa is a Registered Dietitian who graduated from University of Illinois, Chicago. Over the last 25 years she has provided nutrition counseling to patients in many settings including dialysis units, hospitals and outpatient centers. She advocates hollistic health, individualized meal planning, moderation in intake of food and mindful eating. Many studies show that vegetarian proteins are better than animal protein for many of the diseases and being a Vegetarian herself she can help in choosing the right combination of foods to give you optimum nutrition if you are Vegetarian. Pushpa is also a Certified Yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Health educator. She is currently pursuing her Ayurveda Nutrition Consultant course at International University of Yoga and Ayurveda. Digestion is a very important part of good health. Its not only what you eat but also what you digest and eliminate that help you maintain good health. Incorporating some of the principles of Ayurveda into her nutrition practice gives a more hollistic approach to her counseling. She has an MBA in finance and is a freelance graphic designer mainly helping non-profit organizations. Her hobbies include painting, reading, tennis, writing and volunteering.

Patient Comments (1)
in Darien, IL |
My nephrologist recommended that I see this dietician, who among other things specializes in dietary changes for kidney disease. She was absolutely exceptional. Not only did she make dietary modification recommendations for kidney disease but for overall health as well. She was very thorough and made very specific and easy to understand recommendations. She even went over basic food label reading with me, just to make sure that I understood how each area related to my specific medical situation.
