Dr. Neda Amani is on the vanguard of preventive health. Her mission is to transform healthcare – to advance health and healing through writing, speaking, spiritual connectedness, and the arts.
Dr. Amani practiced medicine for twenty-two years before retiring from medicine to become a full-time speaker and educator. While practicing, she rose to the very top of her profession by revolutionizing the way people think about and practice medicine. She is the Founder and President of The Real You, a one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary healthcare program that has transformed the field of integrative medicine. In February 2011, after practicing family medicine in Toronto and Ottawa for nearly eleven years, Dr. Amani decided to dedicate her professional practice to The Real You, working with the Ottawa Police and 100 of their members in the Real You OPS Wellness Pilot Program. The Real You OPS Wellness Pilot provided Dr. Amani with the unique opportunity to provide holistic health care support, education, and coaching to people with the support of a multidisciplinary team, at minimal to no cost to participants. Since its inception, over 800 leaders, officers and civilian members of the OPS have been through the program with high success rates, transforming her clients' health, lifestyles and outlook on life.
Her approach marries both modern medical and ancient health care practices, treating the patient as a whole person. She treats physical and mental health as one connected entity. She looks at lifestyle, cultural and family connections to symptoms. Her work optimizes the body and mind’s natural ability to heal itself. The results are transformative -- for the patient and the health care profession. More than just a doctor, she guides her patients onto a path of robust health. And she has determined that the best way forward is a team approach, harnessing the expertise of medical doctors, naturopaths, psychologists, registered dieticians, physiotherapists, massage therapists and yoga instructors into a full health care solution. This team approach was the genesis of the Real You Program.
