About Sima Goel

Iranian-born Sima Goel has always had compassion for those who suffer. Her instinctive need to speak out against oppression ultimately resulted in unwanted attention from the authorities. At age 13 she stood up for a Baha’i classmate, initiating a cascade of events, which lead to her flight from her beloved Shiraz and eventually to Montreal.

Sima has been a successful Montreal chiropractor and health advocate for over two decades, giving hundreds of lectures on stress management and lifestyle choices. For Dr. Goel true healing involves mind, body and spirit. Her life mission has been to help others take responsibility for their whole being.

Dr. Goel has completed a wellness certificate and is working towards a degree in functional neurology. Blessed with great drive and energy, she is passionate about the benefits of education. Accomplished painter and ceramicist, outdoor enthusiast, and devotee of healthy home cooking, her thirst for knowledge reflects her belief that every minute counts.

Sima Goel is a self-made woman. Her journey to freedom, recounted in her memoir, Fleeing the Hijab, A Jewish Woman’s Escape from Iran, reflects her belief that, without freedom of choice, life is worthless. She is a strong advocate for the disenfranchised and the rights of all, specifically the rights of women. With the publication of her book, Sima has fulfilled the promise she once made to herself: to speak out and share her truth that freedom is the most precious commodity of all.

Wellness chiropractor, health advocate, inspiring author and an in-demand speaker, Dr. Goel considers her most important role to be that of mother to her two teenage boys, and wife to her beloved husband.
