About our guest…
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. Post graduating from SCNM, Dr. Isabel returned to Washington, D.C. to partner with her mother and best friend, Snejana Sharkar where they founded their brain child Indigo Integrative Health Clinic.
Three years into her practice, Dr. Isabel pursued her dream of living part time in London, United Kingdom. With her husband, she founded the company Super Human Earth (SHE), a conscious lifestyle brand. SHE has been a huge inspiration to Indigo and vice-versa. She writes for many beauty magazines and websites on healthy skin, eating for beauty and detoxing from the inside out.
Today Dr. Isabel Sharkar is back in her private practice located in the heart of Georgetown as she plans for construction of her Healing Retreat Sanctuary in Portugal. Her special interests include Conscious Lifestyle Consulting™, Body Optimization, IV Therapy, anti-aging, beauty, regeneration, cleansing and detoxification.
Being a firm believer in the principle, “Let food be thy medicine,” Dr. Isabel interned with Lisa Wilson at the Raw Food Institute in 2013, and since then has further developed extensive knowledge in all areas of nutrition. From personal experience as vegetarian, vegan and paleo to pegan (paleo-vegan), ketogenic and mucusless, Dr. Isabel has you covered.
Dr. Isabel’s 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 multi-dimensional and must include all aspects of each individual- mind, body and soul. Never underestimate the power of belief.
Dr. Isabel takes great pleasure in intertwining ancient healing practices with western medicine, thus making them more available and accessible to the public.

Mentioned in the essential oil segment of episode 51:
Spearmint Essential Oil
Used topically and cosmetically, the antioxidant quality of spearmint essential oil reduces the appearance of wrinkles and skin imperfections. The chemical constituents in spearmint (Carvone, Limonene, 1, 8-cineole, and β-Myrcene) helps with the elasticity of the skin. With anti-bacterial properties, spearmint is great to deeply cleanse skin. The cooling sensation of spearmint oil can help relieve itching associated with dryness and skin irritations. *Always dilute and do a patch test before trying an essential oil.
Quick tip: add one drop to your toothbrush (on top of your toothpaste) for an extra burst of flavor and a clean feeling!
Energetically, spearmint essential oil encourages clear, confident communication. It helps dissolve blockages in the throat chakra and empower one to speak their truth.

Essential Radiance: My Top 5 Essential Oils For Radiant Skin
get the (free) guide
As a green-beauty junkie, I've been on a my mission to find non-toxic, natural products that are high performing AND fit my skin’s unique needs.
After spending thousands of dollars on products but not seeing improvement with my skin, I started researching essential oils.
I discovered 5 that targeted my skin's dehydration and inflammation, so I immediately put them to the test.
After 2 weeks of testing 100% certified pure essential oils, I noticed a huge improvement on the texture and hydration of my skin.
Why I Choose doTERRA
I’ve always been attracted to the plant kingdom to treat and heal ailments. But I never really knew how to incorporate plant power in my daily life — until I came across essential oils.
Lavender for a rejuvenating sleep, Peppermint to soothe a migraine or for a mid-afternoon boost of energy, DigestZen for an upset tummy, Wild Orange to disperse feelings of sadness, Deep Blue to ease tightness in the shoulders, Copaiba to quiet the thought-storm that creates anxiety, overwhelm and stress.
Essential oils can be extremely effective but only when they have been tested and proven to be of the purest quality. (You do not want to use essential oils that have been diluted with synthetic compounds to cut the cost and make it more “available” to consumers.)
It’s critical that we are absolutely discerning about the essential oils we choose to use.
I’ve chosen to align myself with doTERRA essential oils for so many reasons, but the most important ones are the absolute purity of the oils and the integrity of the company.
You can learn more about why I choose to use and work with doTERRA here. You’ll also have the option to purchase oils for yourself and your family, and start your journey of taking your health into your own hands by incorporating these powerful plant allies in your daily life.
