Hello dear friends and fellow health enthusiasts,
As I gear up to relaunch my brand and channel with a rejuvenated passion for the ancient art of Ayurveda, I thought it'd be meaningful to share my personal journey with you all.
Childhood Memories: Brushing Off Tradition Being of Indian descent, Ayurveda's traditions and remedies were part and parcel of my upbringing. But growing up amidst the allures of the American lifestyle, it became easy to sideline these 'unexciting' healthy habits. The allure of the West overpowered the wisdom of the East — at least, for a time.
High School Hurdles: The Allergy Awakening High school came with its own challenges. Severe allergies haunted my days, making my eyes burn and breathing a struggle. When modern medicines offered little relief, it was a trip to India — and a visit to an Ayurvedic clinic suggested by my grandma — that turned things around. A complete herbal detox and new daily habits did what years of other treatments couldn't. My allergy attacks began to fade into memory.
A Wake-Up Call at 24 Fast forward to my early twenties. Tipping the scales at 300 pounds, I felt low and lost. The vibrant kid who once ran around without a care in the world now felt trapped in his own body. It was during these trying times that Ayurveda once again graced my life. From oil massages to dosha-specific diets, the weight began to shed, and my zest for life returned. This newfound love led me down a path of deep study, eventually culminating in my certification as an Ayurvedic practitioner. And the journey isn't over; I'm determined to become an Ayurvedic Doctor in the future.
