Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Saira Sultan.
Dr. Sultan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a Naturopathic Doctor and am Double Board Certified as a Traditional Naturopath and in Nutritional Wellness from ANCB and have been in practice for several successful years.
At the age of 9, I woke up one morning and could not feel my legs. My mom rushed me to the emergency room where I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Since that time, I underwent years and years of excruciating pain and was given many medications.
My husband, Shan, motivated me to look into more natural supplements to relieve my pain. Which drew me to Naturopathic Medicine. After years of fatigue, pain and suffering, I found that my Arthritis was caused by gluten in my diet. I now live pain-free and give all of the credit to Naturopathy and my Amazing husband. They both have changed my life!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My struggles were working full time while going to school full time to become a Naturopath.
After I graduated with my ND Degree, I was determined to find a position and contacted all the Naturopaths in my area. I was lucky enough to find a great ND to mentor, Allison Hilyer, ND and together we grew our practice to all over Georgia.
Unfortunately, health insurance policies changed and testing coverage became non-existent. Therefore, my practice is self-pay. That is another challenge. However, I always find a way to make finances work out with my patient if their goal is to overcome a health challenge.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Dr. Saira, ND – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
My goal is to educate patients to take charge of their health and live a balanced life. My Expertise includes diabetes, high blood pressure, weight management, high cholesterol, skin conditions, pain and auto-immune diseases including celiac, arthritis, hypothyroidism.
I specialize in nutritional testing and offer many medical tests for food and substance sensitivities, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, mold toxicities, genetics, parasites, toxic metals and more.
What makes me unique, is my knowledge to look outside of the box to determine the root cause of a symptom. And I work with you to determine a personalized plan for your health success. I also take my time with my patients to listen to them and understand all that they are going through.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My future goals are to educate my community and how you can stay healthy and avoid diseases. Many people do not know that there are Naturopaths out there that can help you naturally. And, I am determined to always offer the newest cutting-edge tests to help my patients.
