Multi-Therapy Holistic Specialist & Wellbeing Coach
Gee Gahir (BSc. SoN Reg. D.N.N. EMCC )
Hi, Welcome to Holistic Wellbeing by Gee.
I am an experienced naturopath, healer, and lifestyle coach, and a pioneer of the healthy lifestyle movement within NHS. My portfolio of healthcare experience is an accumulation of 30 years of service integrating conventional, traditional, and allopathic modalities to serve wellbeing.
I am not a doctor and do not provide medical advice. I am a scientist by profession, with a curious mind.
My spiritual practice of Bhakti & Shabd yoga started early in life. Yoga is a lifestyle (not an exercise), and I have a deep affinity for metaphysics. I was inspired to explore Eastern (oriental) and Western medicine after reading the Tao of physics by Fritzjov Capra and the works of Mauritz Esher.
'2020 Holistic Health' was launched in 2014 to provide non-clinical proactive mind-body
naturopathic interventions, and holistic stress management solutions, and has since evolved to focus on restoring and optimizing wellbeing post-pandemic, from burnout to balance.
Why Holistic Health- Why Proactive Healthcare?
I was exposed to numerous healing modalities throughout my childhood to heal my bones. It took 8 years to find my feet after 30 surgical interventions to correct childhood hip dysplasia. This was the catalyst that propelled me to seek proactive solutions to preserve the life of my joints and mobility. Despite graduating with a science degree, my intuition or inner calling led me to investigate unconventional healing sciences.
Healthcare is reactive, treatments are only offered when conditions deteriorate.
The holistic path offers proactive and preventative solutions that limit deterioration and restore and maintain wellbeing.
Over the decades I have embodied the path of natural therapeutics, using the seasons as a guide, food, herbs and spices as medicine, and functional movement as meditation.
I provide a multi-therapy non-clinical holistic wellbeing service for HNPCN (in response to pandemic crises)
Long-COVID (non-clinical) audit lead for HNPCN addressing public health concerns caused by lockdown,
Operational lead delivering UCL Partners Framework proactive care project to manage Cardiovascular disease and quality improvement in Diabetes long-term conditions (UCL Partners Framework).
Personalized care faculty lead for CEPN NEL, and offer my expertise to teach medical students about naturopathic principles, and the importance of integrating healthy lifestyles.
Since the pandemic, I have facilitated wellbeing & lifestyle coaching for thousands of clients
90% improved their wellbeing (patient-reported outcome measures)
100% of patients rated their coaching experience as excellent and highly recommended the service.
My aim is to help my clients transform
burnout to vitality
pain and suffering to peace of mind, and joy
Transitions & Life Change
Step into your power
Grief & Loss
My professional career started as a research associate at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology in 1991, and department of Diabetes, St Barts Hospital (1993-1996) on Prof Edwin Gales team, international research in type 2 diabetes.
My professional career organically transitioned from the laboratory to sales and marketing (Vitamin & Mineral industry) and Pharmaceuticals, where I have spent almost two decades. Adept with drug design, delivery and market access across Dermatology (skin health) and Bone health, I received several national accolades for navigating service and pathway redesign over the years, finally receiving the prestigious National Market Access award in 2018/19.
I established one of the first healthy lifestyle proactive programs at The Royal London Hospital, supported by Prof Rino Cerios Team and the Dermatology & Rheumatology departments to reduce stress in patients waiting for treatment.
Academics & Holistic Wellbeing
Throughout my career, I have pursued academic studies and personal development, mainly in natural sciences, and metaphysics. I received a bachelor of science in Applied Biology and Masters's in Neuroscience, my research explored perception, investigating how compound eyes interpret wavelengths of light.
I qualified as a nutritionist and naturopath in 2000, alongside other healing modalities (homeopathy, Gerson cancer therapy, metamorphic, reiki). My passion for the therapeutic properties of food , herbs and spices, moves beyond the realms of macro and micronutrition and introduces the energetic properties of seasonal food, authentic recipes, inspired by my grandmother, and mother.
I am a Shiatsu, TCM and seated acupressure practitioner, a yoga teacher specialising in stress management and functional movement for hip surgery rehabilitation. I spend my time researching proactive dis-ease prevention and early intervention using these modalities.
My life path has been richly infused with a lineage of extraordinary Masters (Guru's), where I have experienced nothing short of miracles, in my own journey and in serving others.
A conduit between the tangible, clinical world of science and the invisible intangible realm of mind-body-spirit, I have enjoyed a portfolio career spanning across 3 decades, the one constant has remained my passion for advocating lifestyle education, personal mentoring, and coaching.
I have provided lifestyle yoga and stress management at schools, to reduce anxiety and improve performance outcomes.
I have developed training courses for medical students, facilitated personal development for consultants who are now national and global champions in their specialty. I have delivered specialised yoga teacher training.
I regularly deliver Zen leadership and workplace wellbeing workshops for organisations, introducing holistic perspectives to enable productivity and performance, resolve conflict resolution.

Environment & Holistic Health
Holistic means treating the whole person: body, mind, emotions, spirit, and space.
The environment we live and work in influences the quality of our well-being. Our environment conveys an energetic resonance perceived through material and sensory stimuli.
The air we breathe, the water we drink, the light we are exposed to, what food we choose to eat and how we eat, stress, pollution, our relationships all influence our thoughts, feelings, and our cellular makeup.
My curiosity of controlled environments in manifesting and maintaining health was heightened during my time in research. For example, the success of an experiment or a drug under laboratory control relies on environmental conditions (pH, temperature, hydration, light etc). Similarly, balancing our internal homeostasis (the way we think, behave, feel etc) depends on our diet, supplements exercise, and environmental conditions.
If our space is not conducive to our serenity, we are less likely to maintain balance. This is true for creating workplace wellbeing as well as a sacred space at home to restore wellbeing.
Intrigued to identify the correlation between health and environment, I explored (and studied) the ancient art and science of placement, Chue Style Feng Shui, with exceptional Masters. This was a game-changer, and transformed my life.
I am the national research coordinator for Chue UK.
