Dr. Sahar Lashin, MD is a graduate of Cairo University and has undergone intensive training in several medical disciplines. After graduating, she received a master’s degree and a Doctorate in Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Endemic Medicine, Tropical Medicine, Interventional Endoscopy, and Interventional Abdominal Ultrasound. She also served as an Associate Professor at Cairo University for 20 years.

 

Dr. Lashin was a postdoctoral research fellow at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and then completed her internal medicine residency at the Sinai Grace Hospital, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. She then went on to obtain her Board Certification in Internal Medicine in 2014.

Dr. Lashin was certified by the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine in 2017. She was also certified by the Swiss Biological Medicine Academy in Switzerland in 2019. In addition, Dr. Lashin is a certified trainer in Ethics of International Medical Research by the University of Maryland and has a Cambridge Diploma for Teachers and Trainers issued by Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Dr. Lashin worked as an Internal Medicine Doctor, Assistant Clinical Professor, and Lead Physician at UCLA. Before that, she worked as a hospitalist and primary care physician at Kaiser Permanente Hospitals in northern California.

 

As a little kid, she enjoyed watching her dad passionately study the human chromosomes and help his patients know their health challenges. He lived his life dedicating his efforts to decipher the genetic codes. She followed in her father’s footsteps and at age 16, after passing several tough exams, she started her first year of medical school. After medical school, Dr. Lashin was assigned a faculty member position at Cairo University, a professor of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, infectious diseases, Tropical Medicine for more than 18 years. A decade after her Ph.D., Dr. Lashin’s father was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. A sudden, devastating monster that appeared overnight to turn the life of a non-smoking, fully active, healthy man upside down. Cancer transformed her father into a bedridden patient with post-surgical hemiplegia and multi-organ failure after radiotherapy. He was given 6-8 months to live.

 

For Dr. Lashin, that was a wake-up call. From this experience with her father, she learned that there are much better ways to heal and prevent diseases. However, Dr. Lashin had lost her role model. It was painful to observe her father deteriorating by the minute, and witnessing the mediocre treatment offered by conventional medicine opened her eyes. With a lot of courage and an open mind, Dr. Lashin shifted her medical practice from conventional medicine to an integrative medical approach combining all aspects of health.

 

After many years of applying an integrative approach to medicine, she began to see significant health achievements and recognizable improvements in her patient’s outcomes - mentally, physically, and emotionally. Her amazing life experiences led her to the Cancer Center for Healing. After shadowing Medical Director, Leigh Erin Connealy, MD., Dr. Lashin has become an expert on early detection, prevention, advanced testing, and treatment of chronic disease and cancer.
