GIFTED ENTREPRENEUR’S A-LIST
NAME: Dr. Rhea Mehta
COMPANY: Living Rhea
FAVOURITE QUOTE: “My life is my message.” – Mahatma K Gandhi
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I created Living Rhea to empower people to lead healthier lives through the inclusion of plant-based whole foods and daily wellness practices. Through my dedicated online presence, I teach people how to utilize the body and mind as a tool for health recovery, restoration and rejuvenation.
Living Rhea – Your Guide to Optimal Living, supplies beginners and enthusiasts with health awareness, education, recipes and tips to accelerate their own healing journeys.
WHY DO YOU DO?
Living Rhea was born from my intention and deep desire to share all that I’ve researched, tested and learned over the course of my healing journey, which started from a very young age, and like most of us, was prompted by the Western diet. After years of commitment, perseverance and the simultaneous accumulation of knowledge – which resulted in the reversal of my symptoms and disease – I felt it was only fair for me to create a platform by which I could download my strategy – my life, for others to use as a guide.
Health impacts us all. My manifesto is to influence and empower communities to “wake up and smell the green juice” – in food, in thought and in action.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR GIFT?
I lead by example. I am the change, as one of my (our) great life mentors, MK Gandhi so beautiful expressed. And I’m always willing to share my healing gifts with those who cross my path, and with the world, through social media.
I’m real and unique. I’m a doctor of Molecular Toxicology and Nutritional Biochemistry and an Integrative Health Coach and Educator. As such, I offer a balanced perspective of holistic and conventional wisdom which provides immense credibility in this under credited and under resourced world of natural healing.
Those who know me (my friends, family, colleagues, and lovely supporters) know that I thrive off of plant-based food and drink innovations and absolutely love engaging in advanced health discussions (nutrition, mind-body, consciousness).
See someone smiling in the distance with a green drink in hand? That’s me! 🙂
HOW DO YOU GIFT IT FORWARD?
I share my wisdom, my personal experiences, the ‘results’ of my self-experiments with the world, with the goal of motivating and empowering people to improve their healthy living behaviours and choices. ‘If Rhea can do it, so can I.’ I keep this in mind as I download my strategies and tips, so that my guidelines remain accessible, warm and inviting.
I share as much as I can for free. I create videos, share my latest tips and tricks, and host online private communities where I share specialized protocols with Dr. Rhea approved research, guidelines and recipes. I believe that people shouldn’t have to pay up-front to learn how to be healthy, especially those who are just beginning to walk up the on-ramp into the overwhelming world of wellness. I strive to stay true to this, as I continue to grow and expand.

HOW DID YOU START ON YOUR GIFTED JOURNEY?
I embarked on my healing journey after years of suffering from chronic back pain and digestive stress, and feeling misguided by the medical system As a curious and budding Scientist who was challenged by the prognosis of lifelong pain, I decided to investigate my symptoms wholistically through extensive research, discipline and self-experimentation. Over time, I not only reversed my illnesses using plant-based whole food wisdom, but I dramatically improved my overall body health and mental clarity. As with most things that enter my life, my curiosity became my passion, and in this case, my life purpose was realized.
Giving has been a part of my family life, and it’s what makes sense to me. Good health is not a secret. Now that I’ve managed to unlock the door to good mind-body health, I feel it is only fair to share what I know with our sick, obese and unhealthy world, with a strong desire to be a key player in our healthy revolution.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THE 21 YEAR OLD VERSION OF YOURSELF?
Surround yourself with inspiring, intelligent people, and listen to them speak and share. Don’t be afraid to ask clarifying questions. Learn as much as you can about the world. Say yes to opportunities. Read books, including bios. Breathe and smile.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE THINKING OF BECOMING A GIFTED ENTREPRENEUR?
Share your ideas. Take advantage of the resources on offer today, like social media, blogging, networking, mentors, coaches. Acquaint yourself with inspiring people and bounce your ideas off of them. Focus on gaining first-hand experience. Welcome constructive feedback and be willing to re-shape your idea(s) accordingly. Create a vision board (tangible or virtual, ie pinterest) and map out your thoughts and opportunities. Don’t be afraid to replace a good idea with a better one.
WHO ARE THE ARCHANGELS IN YOUR LIFE?
I have many archangels, and I’m grateful to them all. However, a particular 3 stand out. My father, my mother and my mentor Ameet – these people are my top guides.
My dad for being so organized, on time & early rising, for his social skills, general knowledge and love and commitment to his family. For being so sure about what he wanted in life and doing what he needed to maintain and support those goals, up until his very last breath. My mum for her generosity and nurturing soul, for her strength during life’s toughest moments, for always putting her children first, for her infinite love for our family, for reshaping her life, including her health, with such optimism and grace, and for doing her very best to take over as both ‘mum and dad’ when the time arose. My mentor Ameet, for his daily teachings, his attentiveness and ability to live with ease in the moment, for knowing enough about every single thing to carry a conversation forward, for being so calm and kind, even in the most stressful of times, for knowing how to let things go gracefully, and for his patience & understanding.
