Sharda Agarwal talks about her personal journey that led to her co-founding her 2nd venture, Sepalika, a healthcare platform focused on reversing chronic health conditions. The inspiration for setting up Sepalika came from Sharda’s personal experience of suffering from migraines for eight long years.
She met several specialists and consumed their prescribed medications: there was no improvement in her condition. This is when Sharda met Mahesh Jayaraman, a traditional acupressure therapist and health counselor, who helped her get rid of the pulsating headaches of migraine in just four months. This prompted Sharda to set up Sepalika along with Mahesh – Sepalika helps patients overcome chronic problems through simple diet and lifestyle changes, dietary supplements and by dealing with the long term side-effects of medication.
Listen to how she started, her learnings and advice for entrepreneurs.
