“My purpose in life is to enlighten people on the benefits of health optimisation through natural practices and interventions. By empowering people with the natural cost-effective practices and philosophies of health maintenance and restoration, my aim is to change the world to a better place than what I found. I have worked with elite athletes including world heavy weight boxing champions, premier league football players and international athletes who use my unique skill set to optimise health, enhance recovery and avoid injury but most importantly enhance their performing careers.”
Jahanara values natural and risk-free methods of care and employs a wide range of old and new sophisticated treatment techniques to empower patients with choice, because not everyone believes that a lifetime filled with drugs and surgery is the key to living a long and healthy life. She is driven by the huge difference she make’s in people’s lives every day and would like to continue this to changing our society’s broken approach to health one patient at a time.
Having worked with several leading mentors over the years to hone her craft, Jahanara’s gentle nature and simple answers cement what many of her teachers had taught, that the beauty of natural medicine lies within its simplicity. She pride’s herself as being a welcoming practitioner and respectful of age, faith and nationality.
