In addition, Dr. Seleme received her B.S. in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Maryland, in 1991, graduated Cum Laude with her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, Texas in 1998. She has been a guest speaker for The College of Energetix Medicine, Physician Grand Rounds at Fairfax Hospital as well as for the Northern Virginia Nurses and Pediatric Lactation Consultants at George Washington University Hospital. She also regularly holds lectures on a variety of health topics especially in the Washington, D.C. Tri-State area and across the United States. Her most well-known lecture topics include “Face Diagnosis and Detoxification” and “Glycemic Index and Weight Loss”.

Her passion is teaching patients the complexity and multidimensional nature of the human body. The components of the human body work as a whole and therefore the entire body needs to be considered when healing from acute or chronic illness and disease. Teaching about chronic illness, their root cause, and the many ways to heal is Dr. Seleme’s specialty.

Having suffered from the devastating effects of Lyme Disease herself, she knows what it takes to recover from a chronic illness. Dr. Seleme uses many therapies and techniques in her practice and a particular area of expertise is detoxification. She has assisted many patients for years using basic and advanced detoxification methods. This is a primary area of concern for all who wish to heal from chronic health problems. She lives by the philosophies that food is a medicine, that the body is a temple that needs and deserves care, and anything is possible.

Recently, after 22 years, Dr. Seleme has changed the focus of her healing practice and created a Consciousness Studio and New Age Shoppe called Ground Gaia. It is a Spiritual Wellness store located in the heart of Old Town Fairfax, VA.  Here you can find an abundance of natural crystals, vibrant stones & many modalities for healing with energy products.  She understands healthcare is evolving and many are interested in new and current ways to become enlightened with healing not just body but mind and spirit as well.  Ground Gaia is also a community for workshops, energy healing sessions & more.
