R.O.A.R. is leading the change, and I'm happier as I'd be internally aahh at his diet lol. The whole family is calmer.
My son is much calmer and balanced.
He is open to making a healthy slushy with real berries, before NO.
You've made it simple, doable, follow the process and it will happen. I was stalled at overwhelm before. It's grounding all the new changes... daily life skills etc too. Getting solid.
NLE is amazing. With ROAR, NLE, and my other programs, transformation in a fun no limits day , so possible. Very appreciative
When I changed my son’s diet per ROAR - his focus increased from less than 2 mins before to almost 20 mins.
Therapists are able to engage with him and do productive work. Earlier they just used to chase him around.
Even though he was eating well before the course - (he was constipated or had diarrhoea) - it was not working out for him, until we cleaned up his diet per ROAR.
I like ROAR because it is short and easy to follow.
- Thu Nguyen
As I changed my son's diet according to R.O.A.R, his irritability came down. My son tends to have some fixations: things need to be done in just the right way. These fixations have also reduced. He has become more flexible. He is more attentive and responsive.
- R. Iyer
Before we get into detail about this transformative program, let's chat about who this is really for:
You are a mom or dad frustrated by your child’s impulsivity and lack of regulation. Your son or daughter is emotionally all over the place, constantly moving from one impulse to another.
You would love for them to become stable, rested and just start learning. But you are frustrated that their schooling doesn’t work well (not just in these times), even homeschooling doesn’t do the trick.
Maybe you are afraid that you will never be able to meet people outside home because of your child’s instability.
You just want your child to grow academically, learn, make friends and be rested.
Whether your child has:
A diagnosis of Autism, ADHD or Learning Disability
No diagnosis, but they are struggling with paying attention in school and staying focused
A genetic disability that seems to come in the way - like Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, Cerebral Pals
This course is for YOU!
This course will give you the TOOLS to help you use food as medicine to shift your child’s health and focus, mood and mindset for the better.
Everybody deserves to learn. Everybody CAN learn.

Roadmap to Attention and Regulation
A 5-week program where you use Food, Respect and Science to achieve Focus, Regulation and Stability
What I love about R.O.A.R is Vaish’s smiling face, her consideration, use of simple language, immediate doubt solving, excellent and helpful references, knowledge of supplements, and information regarding methods and procedures which can help kids with ADHD.
-Jasmine Kolah, mom
This course helped me deepen my awareness of what foods are good to eat - I was completely unaware of what foods to feed my child, even though we generally eat healthy fresh homemade food.
Having changed breakfast according to Vaish’s recommendations, constipation in my son resolved significantly.
Specifically, going dairy free has helped improve constipation and has reduced eczema.
- V., mom of Autistic pre-teen
R.O.A.R helped me really fine-tune my child’s breakfast with respect to sugar.
My child used to fall asleep by 11 am. This change in breakfast was one of the primary changes that helped change this. I no longer hear this from my son’s teachers.
- Shobha Bhojwani, Mom

Chemical Sensitivities can come from artificial sources, but also through naturally occurring foods. At the end of this module, you will skillfully be able to identify and remove food and chemical triggers that cause these symptoms.
If you have ever felt that you don’t understand what nutrition is, how to tweak your diet, this module is where you really become the BOSS of your child’s diet. The toolkit is now OFFICIALLY YOURS.

Many functional practitioners focus primarily on nutrition when working with children with disabilities.
Vaish is really able to “pan out” to see the whole child and how they move through this world—always assuming intelligence, even when physical limitations, impaired verbal communication or behavior issues are present.
Vaish is brilliant, kind and passionate about her work. She helped me reframe my son's situation in a way that gave me more empathy and more patience. She reminded me that no child is broken, requiring "fixing."
Vaish’s Ted Talk was life changing and should be mandatory viewing for all healthcare professionals and educational institutions.

From this course, we not only learned how dietary intervention, supplementation can help with regulation, attention and focus but also we learned some interesting and useful things that we usually tend to overlook.
For example, how vision/ocular muscle challenge could get misunderstood as ADHD.
R.O.A.R is Very comprehensive - a true roadmap showing us which possible “routes” have possible obstructions, in our individual journeys, leading to a child who lacks focus and attention.
Vaish is very approachable - very knowledgeable, breaks things down into doable bits
My child has been on diets before. We saw no change with the Gluten Free Diet.
While Gluten Free Diets and Dairy Free Diets are anti-inflammatory and desirable for many kids, these diets by themselves may not result in significant change, especially if gluten is not the primary cause of regulation / attention issues.
Avoiding Gluten can help heal the gut, but is not often my go to technique to bring back focus and regulation. Other techniques explored in this course are much more important.
We have done traditional "biomed" interventions. We saw no change.
Biomed / Alternative interventions focus heavily on removing pathogenic load and healing the gut, which are very important but will not immediately result in changes if the primary triggering causes of Attention and Regulation issues are not addressed.
How practical will this be for me to follow?
Every module has very specific action items and HW. I hold weekly Q/A sessions to make sure the action items are very clear, and that you know exactly what to do during the week.
I don’t have time to implement complicated recommendations!
The recommendations are not complicated. There may be optional situations where I ask you to consider a technique that you may find hard, but I will always give you a PLAN B that is easier and within your time and ability.
I usually have a lot of questions about how to implement
Great! We have a lot of Q/A sessions. And I am always available in our support group.
What if something does not work for my child?
These techniques are research-based and are meant to work for your kid. The course has 5 modules with different techniques in each module.
It does require implementation and consistency.
But of course it is always possible that something doesn’t work for your kid. If you have implemented every module completely, and it doesn’t give you the results you want, I will give you Plan B alternatives that you can explore.
Also, at the end of 2 weeks, if you have done the work, and you feel that this course is not for you, we have 14-day Refund Policy.
I don’t have the time to cook everyday for my kid
You don’t have to cook everyday. You can batch your meals on the weekend, and I will discuss this in our course. However, there is some cooking involved, and if you cannot cook at all, this course may not be a good fit for you.
Is the course theoretical?
Nope! While I will give you reasons that we are doing what we do and the research behind it, ROAR ™ is all about implementation.
Will my child actually improve? Can you guarantee it?
These techniques are research-based and are meant to work for your kid. The course has 5 modules with different techniques in each. It does require implementation and consistency.
I fully expect you to see improvement, however, in some cases there may be deeper dysfunction - like pathogenic infections or gut inflammation, and it is possible that you don’t see immediate results.
While we do NOT guarantee improvement, I am currently offering do a ½ hour free consultation with you to help you find your next steps.
How much support do I get?
We have at least one Q/A every week for an hour each. I will also be on the Facebook support group ready to answer your questions within 24 hours for the duration of the course - 5 weeks + 1 week = 6 weeks.
I personally cannot wait to guide through this ROADMAP for ATTENTION and REGULATION over the next 5 WEEKS.
Working with food and learning has literally transformed my life.
It was just a few years ago that my son was so dysregulated that everything - even walking a few steps with focus was a huge struggle. I remember the sleepless nights, the utter frustration at not being able to make simple trips, I remember the zoned out look in his eyes. I remember my pain, my complete helplessness.
I can’t even believe some days where I am. And the tools that have worked for me haven’t been all that complex. In fact some of them are so simple that I am surprised others don’t use them regularly.
If you are a mom, dad, or caregiver, I invite you to join me over the next 5 weeks to experience first hand the simplicity and power fo these tools.
