I am an Ayurvedic holistic practitioner, a scientist, and a pharmacologist, with a passion to understand the pathophysiology of various diseases, and to help find techniques to maintain and restore them holistically and non-invasively. I am an experienced preclinical and clinical researcher who has managed drug development programs from early discovery through clinical testing. I offer personalized health guidance to people and motivate them to eat smart, be energetic, vivacious, and happy. I do this by combining traditional eastern medicine with doctrines of western science. With an integrative and holistic approach to wellness, my aim is to motivate people to achieve a healthy state of balance where mind, body and consciousness are all aligned.
