Background and Education
Dr. Venesh Sharma holds an ND (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine) from the multi-accredited National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon, and a Master’s Degree in Integrative Medicine Research (MSiMR).
While completing a mentorship with the SIBO Center in Portland, OR, he gained an interest in the human microbiome, gut health and became fascinated by how it affects every other system in the body. His approach to treating people and not just diseases through whole-body-systems approaches have proven effective with evidence-based medicine and ancient wisdom. After graduating from UH Mānoa with a BA in Psychology, Dr. Sharma worked in education and the non-profit sector for a number of years before dedicating his career to medicine.
Dr. Sharma’s significant experience as an Integrative Medical Practitioner includes a commitment to healing with a strong respect for science and research. He strives to educate patients, leading them to healthier lifestyles and happier lives. His effective diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients follow a whole-body approach and bring together modern medical research and ancient wisdom.
“While our approach and many medicines we prescribe are natural, their effectiveness is widely accepted and supported by evidence-based research.”
He is a doctor and a healer renowned for the care he gives his patients. As a result, treatments are uniquely tailored to your individual needs as a patient to ensure they foster wellness and bring relief from symptoms. Hawaii Integrative combines both Eastern and Western methods and brings out the best in both. It’s a unique approach you won’t find at many other Natural Medicine clinics in the Honolulu area.
When not working with patients, Dr. Sharma enjoys time in and around the ocean, whether sailing, surfing, diving, or going to the beach. He believes that returning to self, spending time in nature, and aligning with the natural world is part of taking care of ourselves, valuing health, and nurturing our well-being.
