In 2004 she started Mediquest which provides chiropractic, physical therapy, and a holistic approach to wellness through nutritional guidance, detailed bloodwork and genetic testing. This information is used to map and identify problems and deficiencies in the body.
Dr. Mahipat also founded 2 non profits. One is Human Services and the other is animal welfare. Her long term vision is to implement cannabis as a treatment option for people suffering from drug addiction, using cannabis as an ‘exit drug’ which is a much safer option than other options such as methadone.
