Crisis offers opportunity. Amid the lockdowns, closings and chaos of Covid-19, Dr. Kaushik’s Ayurvedic & Naturopathic Clinic, in Cross River, NY, rose to the occasion by increasing its clinical hours from three days to five, adding telemedicine for consultations and, to meet the demand for current health information, making its free monthly educational lectures weekly events.

“By taking advantage of online platforms, my clinic joined the learning curve of the rest of the world in this new style of connecting,” says Somesh Kaushik, ND.

He developed a series of hour-long lectures, starting with one on the virus itself, followed by topics associated with it: the immune system; stress/insomnia; anxiety/depression; autoimmunity; diabetes; heart health; and the healing power of gratitude. The lectures quickly booked through the end of the year, Kaushik says.

As the scope of the virus increased, so did the series. New topics were added, including gut health; detox pathways of the kidney, liver and lymph; multi-organ inflammatory disease; allergies/asthma; and addictions.

Now this expanded information will reach an expanded community. Starting in January, the series will be offered throughout the Putnam County Library system.

“Thanks to the Desmond-Fish Public Library in Garrison, initiators of the idea, the yearlong series will be broadcast monthly to a countywide audience using the co-host platform Crowdcast,” Kaushik says.

He also conducts online curriculum courses in Ayurvedic Health Counseling and Ayurvedic Practitioner training. Certification for these courses is offered through NAMA, the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.

Location: Dr. Kaushik’s Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic 792 Rte. 35, Cross River, NY. For more info, call 914.875.9088; email [email protected] or visit For telemedicine, call 646.670.6725.
