From a Near-Death Experience to Promoting Health & Wellness through Ayurveda

Hi! I am Serena Parry.

These days I am living on the picturesque Queensland coast with my daughter. Life’s pretty good! But it wasn’t always like this.

Just a few years ago I suffered from a myriad of health issues including debilitating anxiety and depression, IBS, reflux, eczema and chronic allergies.

I knew I wanted a better life – one without chronic health issues but had no idea how to go about it. Both of my parents also died at a young age so I knew that I didn’t want to end up like them!

I was continuously searching for solutions for my health issues but found it was really difficult to wade through the sea of information that was out there and work out what was and wasn’t going to work for me! I searched relentlessly for over 6 years and got to a point where my body started to shut down and ended up in hospital and almost died.


I tried loads of things to feel better and get off my prescription medications – diets, supplements, specialists, and tests. Some things made me feel better temporarily, some things didn’t help at all and others actually made me worse. I spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to find answers and got nowhere!

It wasn’t until I found a holistic health system when I went to a workshop at the Chopra Centre in California that my life completely changed. In just 6 short months of studying this system of Ayurveda and implementing the principles into my life,  I was able to rid myself of ALL of my chronic health issues and was off the prescription medication doctors said I would be on for the rest of my life.

I realised through this, that all of the previous “solutions” I had tried were to treat the symptoms rather  than the root cause of what was going on for me – and that’s where this unique system came in and changed my life.

There is no other healthcare system in the world like it. The World Health Organisation lists it as “The most ancient, scientific, holistic and complete system  of healthcare in the world.”

More than just a system of treating an illness, it offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behaviour and the  proper use of our senses, this unique system reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind and emotions.

Since then I have gone on to study personally with Deepak Chopra and am lucky enough to be one of his only certified instructors in Australia.  These teachings essentially saved my life and so I sought out the best training in the world so that I could support others to overcome their health challenges as well.

Since then, I have been able to support many people all over the world to increase their energy, improve their sleep, improve their digestion, feel happier and healthier and more importantly in control of their own health.

Using the knowledge I have acquired over many years,  I have developed several online programs and a comprehensive mind-body assessment that is the first of its kind in the world.

Occasionally I run live events to share what I’ve learned. The Perfect Health retreat which I facilitate, has been developed by Dr’s Deepak Chopra and David Simon the co-founders of the Chopra Center. It represents the integration between the principles of modern science and insights from the world’s timeless wisdom traditions.

My goal is to make a difference in the lives of 1 million Australians. I’d love to see you at one of my events. You’ll find more info on this page.
