Sarika began her career as Laboratory Technologist in India and in Ireland. She grew up with Ayurveda (a holistic system of medicine from India) and her love for learning natural health directed her towards studying herbal medicine and naturopathy from college of naturopathic medicine.
As a Naturopath, Sarika’s ability to apply natural methods of healing is of considerable importance. By using natural therapies she is able to treat both acute and chronic ailments successfully. Providing personalised care to each patient, the naturopath sees humankind as a holistic unity of body, mind, and spirit.
An initial consultation with Sarika takes about an hour. During this time, she will ask questions about the person’s condition, medical history, diet and lifestyle, and any conventional treatments that they may be taking. She may then use Iridology (looking into the iris), or tongue and nail diagnosis to get a better picture of the complete health state of the client. If needed, pathology testing such as hair, stool, or blood analysis may be recommended.
Once all of the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated that addresses all areas of the person’s life, providing the body with the optimum chance to heal itself. The treatment plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, herbal medicine, and other suitable remedies. She may also refer the client to other practitioners as part of an integrated health.
