I was born in Birmingham and my parents had moved to England in the 60s from India. My studies took me all over England and now I live in Kingston Upon Thames with my husband and two boys and our dog, Ravi.
As well as nutrition, homeopathy and naturopathy, I love walking in nature, dancing and spending time with family and friends. On a rainy day you can find me curled up with a book hibernating.
I have always been fascinated by the human body, which started with my sister having a rather nasty fall when I was only 5. I remember watching in horror the blood that just oozed out of her wound wondering whether she was going to bleed dry and if I would get the blame being the eldest.
I went onto to do my first degree in Pharmacology, which opened up the world of Western medicine. I grew up with migraines and was quite used to happily popping pain-killers without a thought, although my mother did try various ayurvedic techniques that helped sometimes. I then went onto do a MSc in Molecular Toxicology and Pathology as I wanted to understand the impact of not only toxins in our body but also the genetic mechanism. Molecular biology at that time was a new and exciting field of science.
Following my MSc I moved to Berkshire to work for a Biotech company in and that gave me the drive to go and do my PhD in cancer research. I completed my PhD in cancer at King’s College Hospital and by the end of my PhD, I had discovered an influential medical doctor who was treating cancer patients with the same cancer (pancreatic cancer that I studied during my PhD) but with results that were pretty astounding. He was integrating nutrition and naturopathy into his clinical practice and of course I moved to the USA with my husband and completed a Masters in clinical nutrition.
I started my first practice in Manhattan in 2001. Later both my husband and I moved back to London when I was pregnant with my first son. I set up practice in Harley Street, London and was enjoying life and all that motherhood brought with it. I also began to teach for various nutrition colleges with a focus on the science of nutrition.
My first son bought me to homeopathy. In 2003, his eczema at the age of 6 months was cured with one homeopathic remedy that was given to him for birth trauma. As you may have guessed, I went onto study this incredible science for the next 4 years and had my second son whilst studying homeopathy, running my nutrition practice and writing a book.
In the last year of my homeopathy course, I published my book, ‘Fat Does Not Make You Fat; and Other Naked Health Truths’.
I love integrating my scientific background with the nutrition and homeopathic approach to healing. I have been in practice since 2002 and I am blessed to say that I love what I do and do what I love.
I look forward to hearing from you.
