Posted by Dinesh Perera on June 07, 2012 (0 Comments)
I’m very pleased to introduce my friend Dr. Schweta Kasbekar as our expert on the health benefits of spices. On many an occasion I’ve been asked questions regarding spices and health. Mine is a culinary adventure. So, I’m happy to have Dr. Schweta speak about and answer any of your questions on spices and their health-giving properties.
Dr. Schweta Kasbekar is a native of the Chicagoland area and received her two undergraduate Bachelor degrees in both Biology and Spanish from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. She then attended the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL where she achieved her Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and the University of Chicago, IL where she completed her MBA.
Dr. Kasbekar has had a lifelong interest in fitness and health, as well as great experience addressing musculoskeletal conditions, chronic disease, and inflammatory disorders. Her background in clinical nutrition and current candidacy for her Diplomate for the American Board of Chiropractic Internists allows her to use extensive laboratory testing and evaluation.
The doctor, through her hundreds of hours of post-graduate study in nutrition, natural therapies, and acupuncture has successfully treated patients suffering from many conditions, including but not limited to: chronic disease, auto-immune diseases, fibromyalgia, weight management, fatigue, food allergies, and support for cancer therapies.
Dr. Kasbekar pursues a patient-centered, integrative medical approach to wellness. She believes that the combination of medical science and natural therapies is the key to responsible, safe, and effective health care.
On behalf of Dr. Schweta, I'm pleased to publish what will hopefully be the first of many articles for us—“Health and the Role of Turmeric.”
