Who is Azadeh Razavi, could you please introduce yourself?
Hi! I am Azadeh and I am the owner and practitioner at Nutritionhouse Heartland. I have my PhD in biochemistry but being fascinated with natural medicine, I got my degree in homeopathic medicine and holistic nutrition.
What is your business and when did you start?
I joined Nutritionhouse about 12 years ago. I love helping my clients and my customers finding the root cause of their problems and regaining their health. Nutritionhouse is a health store that carries more than 15,000 different natural supplements, herbal medicine and homeopathic remedies. We also carry a good variety of Low Carb/Keto products. My clinic is located inside the store, where I sit down with my clients and discuss their health challenges.
What inspired you to start your business?
When you are looking at mysteries of life under the microscope , you understand the power of nature. I have always being fascinated by the benefits of natural medicine.
What were the challenges in the initial stages of your business and how did you overcome them?
I remember thinking how the human body was the most amazing energetically active life form ever assembled and what a privilege it would be to create a career around it. Attempting to understand its parts from the cellular and genetic level going outward to its magnificent periphery would be an exercise revealing how much I needed to learn.
What motivates you about your business?
I love what I do- at the end of the day, I feel purpose and meaning by helping every client, and it’s very rewarding.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
