After she practiced general medicine as well as pain management and discovering firsthand how the opioid epidemic had affected the country, Dr. Shivani Amin knew there had to be a way for patients to live their lives more efficiently. This began her journey in revolutionizing the health and wellness world by bringing functional medicine and spirituality together.
Today, the role of spirituality has grown to be more recognized when it comes to health, illness, recovery, and wellbeing. Alternative and holistic practices such as yoga, Tai Chi, energy work, Reiki, to name a few, have been growing in popularity. This shows that medical science and spirituality are coming together at a much more rapid pace than ever before, even more so with Dr. Shivani leading the way.
Growing up in the United States from a traditional Indian family, Dr. Shivani was deeply inspired by the wisdom of her ancestors in ancient healing methods. She grew up surrounded by medicinal plants and herbs. She recalls that whenever she was sick, her grandmother would always give her some herbal medicine, and they always seemed to work. Fast forward to today, she successfully integrates these practices with modern western medicine.
Dr. Shivani obtained her medical degree from the American University Of The Caribbean and was trained in family medicine at Hoboken University Medical Center. Aside from academic training, she has also studied under shamans, Kabbalist teachings, feng shui, among other spiritual teachings. After witnessing the power of holistic and herbal medicine to create lasting wellbeing, she is now offering a unique approach to healthcare. She does this by bridging medicine with spirituality to allow her patients to live more active lives without the debilitating side effects of pharmaceutical medications or the risk of death.
She wanted to show the world the importance of getting the root cause of illness through functional medicine and bridging that with spirituality such as meditation and energy work. She has always been passionate about helping people, so they, too, can live vibrantly through the practice of holistic and integrative medicine. At this time of crisis, both pandemic and racial injustice, many black people don’t even have access not only to health care but food resources like others do. Through her work, she is hoping to be able to help people live their best lives.
On the other hand, Dr. Shivani has now become the leading authority on the responsible use of cannabis, CBD oil, and nutraceuticals. As a huge advocate for cannabis, she has since been interviewed in Forbes, iHeartRadio, Popsugar, among a few. She also has an upcoming book that talks about her journey in bridging medicine and spirituality.
More than just revolutionizing the health and wellness industry through bringing functional medicine and spirituality together, she is also breaking the glass ceiling by being one of the few females who are making a name in spiritual and holistic health. For Dr. Shivani, this has been a male-dominated industry for far too long, and she’s working to change it.
Dr. Shivani Amin is now accepting new patients online in Los Angeles, California, and across the US. With coronavirus, health should be your top priority. If you’re interested to know how Dr. Shivani can help boost your immune system, visit her website.
