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.
Today Dr. Isabel Sharkar is in her private practice located in the heart of Georgetown. Her special interests include digestive disorders, clinical nutrition, cleansing and detoxification. Being a firm believer in the principal, “Let food be thy medicine,” Dr. Sharkar has interned with Lisa Wilson at the Raw Food Institute, learning how to implement nutrition into her clinical practice. Dr. Sharkar’s objective is to integrate traditional medicine with the business of conventional living. She firmly believes in empowering her patients through knowledge and education whilst restoring their health in the least aggressive way possible.
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. Never underestimate the power of belief.
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 is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the District of Columbia Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
