Hi Dr. Nirdosh...
How did you go from child dancer to Celebrity Cosmetic Doctor treating rock stars, millionaires and members of the Royal Family?
My childhood was colourful. Orderly disorder, chaos with calculation. I was encouraged very early by my mom
and dad to become a child performer
of eastern/western dance, it was an
entertainment sensation rippling
through the ethnic communities of
Europe in the late 1970s.
My mother contrived a master plan,
which forced me into action. Failure was not an option and I was touring the UK nightly as a solo dancer, even though I was barely 8 years old. Her tunnel vision
brought success. I learnt an important lesson too and it was this; as I was one of a few, and not one of many, by working hard it was possible to become top of my game!
I ended up performing to audiences
of thousands every night. My mother was an avid dancer and a very good one too, and mentored me from the early age of four to master the highly technical skillsets
necessary to prove my worth as the superior child dancer. Unbeknown to me, the dedicated hours of committed discipline to dance, up to six hours a day,
seven days a week, was to be the blueprint of my success later in life. Work hard! And that discipline remains a core part of me to this very day.
I recall peers, friends and cousins
at that time questioning why I dedicated so many hours to something which may result in nothing. I never saw it that way. It was true that dancing faded out of my
life after the birth of my other sisters because my parents didn’t have the same time to focus on dance, but the work ethic and discipline never left me. And when I went on to grammar school I had skillsets
which no one else had - dance and nutrition! For having undergone such a gruelling dance schedule I had learnt to eat well and look after my body. So
age 11, I was the class nutrition expert! This was a double edged sword as I would analyse classmates’ lunchboxes telling them what would cause energy slumps and what would make their skin spotty and
rashy. As you can imagine I was seen as a weirdo and this resulted in me not having many friends.
Ironically I wasn’t too keen on
sports. I think I was still reeling from dance burnout, but I was fascinated with food and the body and ended up studying
Medicine at Birmingham Medical University. Upon arrival I asked lecturers about nutrition and anti-ageing medicine. They showed little interest and brushed it off, so I ended up researching it myself!
Hover to reveal!
This research continued alongside
my studies. I qualified and started doing late nights as an NHS doctor. I was on call doing 18 hour shifts seven days a week. Whilst working late nights, like all
new doctors, I started ageing
prematurely. I was losing my hair,
I was gaining weight, I was
losing elasticity in my facial
skin, my face was losing colour
and I looked a decade older
in just six months. I found
myself confronted with two
options, either I continue
ageing rapidly or I
become the guinea pig
for my own anti-ageing
plan. I chose the latter
and the rest as they
say is history.
I became the
Cosmetic Doctor to
high profile clients
around the globe who
demanded the best
results and now who
regularly fly in just to
MY ADVICE TO YOU IS...
Start out with a belief in yourself, then go forward with tunnel vision - without negative distraction - so you can attain your dreams. Set a
realistic plan, and if you execute it consistently, no matter how long it takes, you will prevail.
