About Us

Niambi is an ancient west African name, which means "melody" or "harmony".  Niambi is the birth middle name of Dr. Anika Niambi Al-Shura, BSc, MSOM, PhD, and she used it to establish Niambi Wellness Institute in 1994. The purpose is for harmonizing health through public awareness, clinical practice, continuing medical education and for her to sustain her own life.

Niambi Wellness Natural Pharmacy was created in 2010 as part of clinical practice, for developing various herbal OTC (over the counter) and prescription formulations for Dr. Anika's doctoral research projects on the concepts of Integrative Cardiovascular Chinese Medicine (ICCM). Her projects were completed during her post-graduate hospital study years, medical university teaching posts and doctoral field research in China between 2004-2014.

Since then Dr. Anika co-edited a peer -reviewed scientific article on the importance of prebiotics and probiotics on important health mechanisms and disease progression. She has also authored many peer-reviewed textbooks through Elsevier Academic Press for Niambi Wellness Institute.
