What would you call the Turning point in your life (How did the idea of getting into this field come about? What made you choose this? And what would you say sets you apart?
After my graduation in the medical field, I got the opportunity to do a Postgraduate Diploma in cosmetology and Trichology as well as in Nutrition, and this was a turning point in my life from medicine I went to the specialized field of Aesthetics and wellness, which is the need of today.
Many people especially youngsters face a lot of problems related to skin hair and obesity, which makes them low in their self-esteem.
These treatments help boost their confidence level.
Many of them have the wrong lifestyle, eating habits, and lack of exercise these all lead to weight gain and many other issues like hormonal imbalances, and obesity due to that they are more prone to get diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, etc.
I help them by treating them holistically with the help of lifestyle management, diet advice, meditation, medicines, and whatever other concerning issue related to skin or hair there may be.
