Author, The Conscious Pregnancy, Speaker, Ayurvedic Practitioner
Shivani believes that self-care is at the core of prevention and optimum health for the `whole-self.’
If there were one word to describe Shivani Gupta, owner and founder of Fusionary Formulas, it would be passionate. But to try to and quantify the impact Shivani has already made on the world, in one word only, would be nearly impossible. For she is a visionary, with a determination to heal the world, and she has only just begun.
Growing up the daughter of two hardworking and self-made parents, Shivani was introduced to Ayurvedic medicine and the powers of holistic healing from a very young age. A student at Texas’ most prestigious preparatory school, Shivani was motivated by the drive and knowledge of the students she was surrounded by, and spent her entire senior year devoted to nonprofit work.
With a diabetic mother, and a father with a strong respect for the medical profession and the power of vitamins, it is no wonder that Shivani felt the need to develop a career focused on helping others. From a very young age, she felt the calling from the depths of an empathetic and compassionate soul, to help those who were suffering in any way. It was this need to care for and help others, coupled with her natural entrepreneurial spirit that led her on a path of healing, educating, and empowering others to care for their health in natural and effective ways. Shivani grew up visiting some of the best Ayurvedic spas around the world, with a curiosity and a quest for knowledge as strong as her desire to help the world around her.
Honoring this calling, Shivani chose the country’s number one college for entrepreneurship, Babson, in Massachusetts. Taking a special liking to social entrepreneurship because of it’s promise to finding solutions to problems plaguing society, Shivani created a powerful panel on the field for the school to experience before graduating with a degree in both social entrepreneurship and global marketing. As a recognized leader in her class, she was acknowledged by the President of Babson at her commencement ceremony, for playing an active role in bridging cultures and classmates together. In addition to her degree from Babson, Shivani obtained a Masters in Ayurvedic Studies from the Hindu University of America (HUA).
Following graduation, Shivani set out on an entrepreneurial quest. Her first passion project, a line of organic-cotton baby clothing called Sama Baby Organics, sold in Whole Foods Market and featured in Vanity Fair, Parents Magazine, and Psychology Today. It’s commitment to ethical processes and devotion to giving parents an alternative to synthetic cotton clothing made Shivani’s first project a tremendous success, which propelled the desire for her next businesses, Greenista.com, an eco-conscious lifestyle blog and DrivePR, a branding and marketing agency.
Today, as Shivani watches all of her hopes and dreams come to fruition with the creation of Fusionary Formulas, she is feeling a strong sense of pride and accomplishment. She is not only proud of having developed a line of supplements with the finest quality ingredients found anywhere in the world – she is fulfilled by her ability to fuse her love of ancient Indian and Ayurvedic medicine with modern science, a marriage this world has been missing out on until now. As part of her commitment to giving back, Fusionary Formulas has joined forces with “Vitamin Angels,” a nonprofit organization that brings vitamins to mothers and children in need, just 25 cents helping to prevent a child from going blind for one year. Shivani proudly donates $1 from every bottle of Fusionary Formulas purchased to Vitamin Angels.
Kind, generous, loving, and determined would be a few more words to describe Shivani Gupta. In her free time, she lectures on Ayurveda around South Florida, loves to teach and share healthy living tips and practices with others, and is helping people transform their health by utilizing Ayurvedic daily lifestyle practices. She loves taking time out of her schedule to enjoy bike riding with her children, engage in photography as a hobby, and explore all if the organic farmer’s markets she can find. She currently resides in South Florida with her husband and two children, and is working on her doctorate in Ayurvedic Studies.
