The world is currently fighting two pandemics, COVID and racial injustice. During these unfortunate times, it is even more critical to make sure that aside from our physical health, our emotional and mental health are in excellent condition as well.
Dr. Shivani offers a unique approach to healthcare by bridging medicine with spirituality to allow her patients to live vibrant, joyful, and fulfilling lives. She specializes in functional and holistic medicine to aid her patients without the debilitating side effects of pharmaceutical medications.
Functional Medicine focuses on identifying the root cause of a disease, whereas Holistic Medicine promotes healing that considers the whole person. Together, they uncover and address all the things that might contribute to the existence of your illness, may it be the environment, lifestyle, or chemical imbalance in a person.
Essentially, it’s getting to the factors that contribute to the existence of the illness and doing something about them instead of just fixating on the disease itself.
Instead of focusing on treating her clients using conventional medication such as tablets, Dr. Shivani’s approach to helping her patients heal is through alternative medicines such as acupuncture, yoga, diet, exercise, psychotherapy, energy work, and meditation.
She is also a leading authority on the responsible use of cannabis, CBD oil, and nutraceuticals. Dr. Shivani is a cannabis expert who is a member of the AMMPA (American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association). According to her, CBD is extremely anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective, but it is still crucial for the patients to know the safe and effective use of cannabis.
Recently, she wrote a book about bridging medicine with spirituality. And she hopes that the readers, particularly women, will be interested and be able to find comfort in learning more about spiritual and holistic health. The book will be published late this year or next year.
Dr. Shivani obtained her medical degree from the American University Of The Caribbean and trained in family medicine at Hoboken University Medical Center. She further increased her knowledge by studying under shamans, Kabbalist teachings, feng shui, among other spiritual teachings. She is an Indian doctor, and she believes that spirituality is ingrained in her nature.
Moreover, Dr. Shivani is also a medical director for Sweat Theory, a health studio that specializes in infrared saunas and unique infrared yoga that stimulates weight loss and blood circulation. They also offer fitness classes and mediation after booking an appointment through calling (310-956-2307) or via their website.
Dr. Shivani holds a strong passion for helping people live vibrantly through the practice of functional and holistic medicine. She helps her clients achieve healing by gaining proper balance in life, and understanding that unifying the mind, body, and spirit is a practical pathway to optimal health and wellbeing.
