At the heart of our mission is the belief that everyone deserves the chance to live their best life. It all began with a spark of inspiration, fueled by the transformative power of nutrition and lifestyle choices. Now, we're a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing evidence-based health, nutrition, and wellness research and information with the world.
But that's not all. Our team is also committed to supporting education for children worldwide. From school supplies to scholarships and more, we're making a difference in the lives of children in need. Every member of our Board of Directors volunteers their time and money to this cause, so you can trust that every dollar you give goes directly to helping a child.
We're not your average non-profit. We cover our own administrative expenses, so you can feel good knowing that your donation is making a tangible impact on someone's life. And we don't just stop at information and education – we're boots on the ground, supplying low-income children in the US and around the world with the tools they need to succeed.
Join us in our mission to create a healthier, happier world.

Have you ever felt that there must be something more to life? A missing piece that you just can't seem to find? For me, that missing piece was the opportunity to make a real impact in the world and serve others. I've been blessed with so much in my life, and I knew it was time to give back.
It all started during my childhood in Pakistan. I fell ill with a severe case of measles that left me bedridden for months. Doctors told my parents that I wouldn't survive, but somehow I did. However, my health and digestive issues continued to plague me for years to come, and my experiences with doctors and healthcare ignited a spark inside me.
That spark was fanned into a flame when, at the age of ten, my family moved to the United States. We struggled to make ends meet, and my older sister's epilepsy made life even more challenging. One night, she had a seizure in her sleep, and I tried my best to save her, but I couldn't. The tragic loss of my sister led me to make a promise to become a doctor and help others in need.
After obtaining my medical degree and marrying my soulmate, we wanted to start a family, but my wife's pulmonary hypertension and lupus made it difficult. I was determined to find the right nutrition and lifestyle habits to help her manage her illness and regain control of her health. It took years of trying and heartache, but we now have two beautiful daughters, and our family is stronger and more grateful than ever.
That's why I founded SELF Principle - to share my knowledge and help others live their best lives. My life's mission is to serve and make a difference in this world, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to give back.
