The passionate homeopath has acquired her Masters in Homeopathy and conducted intensive research on anti-obesity & Phytochemical Analysis.
"It's more important to know what kind of patient has a disease than what kind of disease a patient has", as said by Hippocrates, is one of the quotes Dr Lydia believes at heart as a strong believer of individualistic treatment.
She often says that our body has the power to heal itself and thus restoring the balance by combining appropriate medical practices, diet, along with lifestyle modification will restore the patient's health and sees the symptoms experienced by one as the body's ways of indicating that something is out of balance in the human body.
Furthermore, her unquenchable desire to help others reach the goal of healthy living has paved the way to conduct courses on functional medicine & basic homeopathy for students and practitioners who are interested in integrative approaches in clinical practices.
In the future, Dr Lydia aims to conduct training and embark on clinical research in functional medicine, additionally organizing conferences in the areas of advancements and innovative medical practices.
