Dr. Roopa Chari’s heart has always been in finding natural solutions for the ailments that plague the population such as fatigue, weight, inflammation, cholesterol, and other pesky health issues they’d rather not take table-sized tablets to treat.

For Dr. Chari, her zeal for integrative medicine has been lifelong, and endowed to her by her mother. “She is my inspiration. Since I was young, she would bring in healers from India and other countries who talked about mind, body, medicine, spirituality, and nutrition. My mother always told me that if I went into medicine, I could be the bridge between both worlds.”

A medical doctor who specializes in internal medicine, Dr. Chari, pursued her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at North Shore University Health System, in affiliation with the University of Chicago.

After her residency, she was able to mentor under naturopathic doctors to master her passion for helping others address their issues with advanced, natural approaches. In 1997, Dr. Chari moved to San Diego with her family before opening the Chari Center of Health. Together with her brother, Deepak Chari, an engineer and advanced voice biofeedback specialist, the Chari siblings fulfill both physical and emotional aspects of modern natural healing.

In May of 2022, following their beloved mother’s passing, Dr. Chari and her brother moved to Bradenton to be closer to family. “It was divine guidance,” Dr. Chari says.

The Chari Center of Health opened in Sarasota in January 2023. With decades of experience in holistic medical practices, they pride themselves on their comprehensive, cost-friendly lab work. Following the lab work, Dr. Chari then creates a functional medicine report. “In traditional labs, they say from one extreme to the other is normal,” Says Dr. Chari, “In functional medicine, we say there’s a very narrow range of normal. That way I’m able to go line by line with my patients as I explain the significance, meaning, and effect of their lab work.” Dr. Chari has also created a treatment program based on her patients’ blood work. After a comprehensive intake questionnaire, Dr. Chari confirms the information with the patient, before arranging for the bloodwork. With the report, Dr. Chari can give recommendations that are tailored to the patient’s unique history and lab work; thereby addressing any issues the patient might have and reversing them.

“I remember this mother, who was struggling to take care of herself because she had a son who needed a lot of help due to his autism. When she came in to see me, I was able to catch a lot of things like cholesterol, inflammation, weight, and blood sugar issues she had.” Says Dr. Chari, reflecting on one of her fondest success stories, “If we hadn’t addressed that, it could have been significant. What did happen, though, is that she lost weight, and her friends told her that she looked 30 years younger. She had so much energy, and she was able to take care of her family more by taking care of herself.” Dr. Chari also notes the Chari Center of Health has the tools to prevent insomnia and treat medication-less diabetes and high cholesterol.

“In all,” Says Dr. Chari, “our long-term goal is to help and connect with this beautiful community. We absolutely love Sarasota. We feel it’s heaven on earth.”
