The Story of CERA

Sarah Turner

Sarah is something of a brain health obsessive. In addition to first degrees in Psychological Sciences and Nutritional Medicine, with a Post Graduate qualification in Clinical Neuroscience, she has studied many techniques both orthodox and alternative, with one goal in mind – to improve and optimise brain wellness and prevent brain related disease.  Whilst in California, Sarah became involved with the Biohacker movement. This led to her current understanding of the overriding role of physics in biology and fuelled her fascination with light and its healing effect on the body and mind.   Whilst collecting data for a clinical trial on the effect of near-infrared light on symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, she gained direct experience of how powerful this therapy could be.

Sarah brings all her knowledge, passion, and clinical research experience to the CERAThrive partnership – and has big plans for the further expansion of this holistic brain focused company including a range of Nootropics, courses, and cutting-edge brain health modalities.
