Hailing from Cardiff School of Medicine in Wales, UK and having trained in General Surgery and Accident & Emergency medicine, this ‘Baby Doc’ (as she’s fondly called) never foresaw that there’d come a day when she’d leave behind her 15 hour-long shifts in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit and a full-fledged career in clinical medicine, in search of something more stimulating and far more satisfying. During these turbulent professional and personal times, Daamini turned to health and fitness, initially as a distraction, and later found her solace there.
Fast-forward a few years, today Dr Daamini Shrivastav is the Director of PR & Marketing for the Conceive Gynaecology & Fertility Hospital (UAE), writes health/nutrition & fitness columns in leading magazine publications, has completed her CPM Training with the Centre for Spatial Medicine and is qualified in Hypnotherapy & Past-life Regression Therapy from The Brian Weiss Institute.
Today she combines her medical science knowledge with that which she’s gained from both personal experience and excessive reading to advise, guide and inspire those around her. In particular what motivates her is the lack of awareness and proper information available to the public, which invariably results in people making incorrect health-related decisions; nothing irks her more!Areas Covered
