What drew you to this profession?

Ayurveda understands that the body consists of the five major natural elements: air, fire, water, earth and space/ether. This understanding underlies the philosophy that we are part of nature—not separate—and that keeping these elements in balance is the key to health.

How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?

The centuries-old healing art of Ayurveda, coupled with scientifically proven modern naturopathic research, blends the wisdom of the past with the knowledge of the present to recreate balance and harmony in the body. That’s the basis of health.

What should someone expect from working with you?

Ayurveda recognizes that each individual is unique. After an in-depth analysis of your situation based on your body constitution, treatment options are discussed. Options may consist of supplement, diet and lifestyle recommendations, along with possible detox protocols, such as panchakarma and ozone therapy.

What changes have you planned for 2023?

We will continue the certification courses in Ayurveda Health Counseling and Ayurveda Practitioner Training. We follow the curriculum of the Ministry of Ayush, Government of India, the most authentic for Ayurveda. Our free monthly lectures will involve a yearlong series covering Ayurveda’s approach to common disorders and how Ayurveda can alleviate dysfunctions.

Anything else our readers should know?

We follow Ayurveda’s principles, recognizing that although we are all composed of the five major elements found in nature, these elements are uniquely combined in each of us. When they are out of balance, illness or disease results. Ayurveda can restore that balance, boost the immune system and bring the body back into its natural state of health by treating the whole person—body, mind and spirit—not just the symptoms.
