A medical doctor by training, Dr Shikha Sharma is India’s most prominent Nutrition evangelist. She is an alumnus of the Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi.
It was while working as a Junior Doctor in Cardiology that she realized that most of the patients in the ICU have no idea about the root cause of their heart problem. They were also likely to relapse into unhealthy eating after treatment. This prompted her to set up Nutriwel Health, a company formed with the purpose of promoting preventive healthcare and improving the lives of people at large. The women-led organization, with its expert Ayurvedic doctors and nutritionists, has helped thousands of Indians all over the globe in achieving a perfect balance of modern nutrition and Vedic nutrition.
Dr Shikha pioneered the concept of Nutrigenetics, which combines modern medicine techniques and the principles of Ayurveda. She has advised many celebrities, hoteliers, and Chief Ministers of Indian states, one Ex-Prime Minister among others, on diet and health management. Dr Shikha is the recipient of many awards and honors for her work and achievements. She was awarded the Women Achiever Award by FICCI and the Gr8 Indian Women Award. She is an expert advisor to FSSAI (Indian Food regulator) and the Co-Chair Health of ASSOCHAM (Industry Body).
