MONA SHARMA - Founder / CEO

“Movement is therapy to live well, meditation re-conditions the mind, and food is fuel to allow the mind and body to thrive. This is the wholistic framework I use with my clients for optimal wellness and happiness for life”

 

Mona Sharma is a dynamic leader and entrepreneur in the health and wellness industry, as well as a celebrity wellness educator, who works with high profile clients all around the world. She recently has a reoccurring role on the Facebook series Red Table Talk, where they profiled her health and wellness work with Will Smith and the entire Smith family. She is also a Holistic Nutritionist, mind/body coach, and founder and of Xicama™ an innovative line of functional food and beverage products, that deliver the gut and immune boosting benefits of the superfood, Jicama, and were an official functional cocktail mix at Coachella 2019.

Now living in Los Angeles, and working with clients around the world, growing up, Mona spent summers living on an Ashram, learning the power of food as medicine, yoga, and meditation to heal the body. Today these are the pillars of Mona’s philosophy, helping her clients achieve their goals for long term optimal health and excellence. She believes in functional nutrition as medicine, breath and movement as therapy, and meditation as mind re-conditioning, ridding the effects of learned behavior, stress, and inflammation of the body. Mona awakens the health, mindset, and lifestyle that allow her clients to thrive, achieve their goals, while developing sustainable habits with fun and ease.

Mona has experienced first hand the healing power of food. After overcoming two heart surgeries, experiencing chronic anxiety, and burning out in the corporate world as the head of education for luxury cosmetics brands, she returned to her Ayurvedic roots and began her own healing journey, freeing herself from medication, losing 40 pounds, and healing herself from the inside out. She developed a deep understanding of the science of food, recognizing food as information that either fuels us or depletes us, and how confusing the topic of nutrition can be. Being bombarded with latest diet trends, losing touch with how to cook, and dealing with the pre-conceived emotions around food, “it makes it nearly impossible to know what the right “diet” is to make us feel good.”

Mona and her team work directly with her clients and their doctors using a wide range of tests and blood labs, building an effective health program that is unique to each person’s needs, imbalances and constitution. Furthering her own educational journey, Mona partners with world-renowned Functional Medicine doctors, Scientists, and Rheumatologists all over the world to stay on the cutting edge of science and nutrition, to further optimize her clients wellness journey.

MY LIFE

For over a decade, Mona has worked with clients on mind-body connection, the link between inflammation, gut health and vitality, and the foods that fuel optimal health. One day, while pregnant with baby India, Mona was eating Jicama in her kitchen with her husband, when they decided to pull out the juicer to make some Jicama juice. Aware of its benefits for gut health and immunity, they kept the conversation going, leading to the establishment of her own company, IQ Foods International— for which Xicama™, an innovative jicama-based food and beverage line, is the flagship brand.

Mona’s philosophy is that it’s time for us to take back our health, and decide that we are worth more than living with symptoms we’ve gotten used to. Food, meditation, and movement are the ultimate pillars to a vibrant mind and body for life.
