Introducing Dr. Isabel Sharkar

Manage Subscription

As we embark upon a new year, brimming with the best of intentions, it seems fitting to introduce you all to one of Sönd’s most trusted experts - Dr. Isabel Sharkar, a Naturopathic Doctor hailing from Washington, D.C.

Dr. Sharkar is a firm believer in the principal, "Let food be thy medicine", specialises in digestive disorders, clinical nutrition, cleansing and detoxification, and body optimisation. For Dr. Sharkar, the skin can tell us a lot about the state of our body and mind, and the right nutrition can have a huge impact on our overall wellbeing.

“Provided the right tools, the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Healing is multidimensional and must include all aspects of each individual- mind, body and soul.  Whilst returning each individual back to nature.”

When Sönd launched in 2015, it was Dr. Sharkar who introduced the health and skin benefits of silica to fascinated beauty journalists at our press launch.“It has such a tremendous impact on skin regeneration - silica is strongly linked with healthy youthful skin.”

After receiving her B.S. in Biology from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia and joining the Georgetown Summer Medical program in Washington, D.C., Dr. Isabel Sharkar was lead to the hot Sonoran desert of Arizona. Being in constant pursuit for truth and healing she graduated in 2011 from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Sharkar takes great pleasure in intertwining ancient healing practices with western medicine, thus making them more available and accessible to the public. Dr. Sharkar currently practices in her private practice, Indigo Integrative Health Clinic, in Washington DC. She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the District of Columbia Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

We look forward to working with Dr. Sharkar more throughout 2017 and sharing lots of her wisdom with you all.
