I have been working as a Clinical Pharmacist in a long-term Care Pharmacy for over 13 years; having had a successful career and having worn multiple hats at work from being a clinical pharmacist to supervisor the quest for real health care was always persistent and this is because of the blinding shortcomings I have seen with current medical care. When asked about the same question my boss would say “what else would you expect in this corporate world?” That answer never satisfied me and the quest continued.
I always believed nature truly gifts us with whatever we ask for whole-heartedly and it indeed showed me a path toward Ayurveda–a 5,000 year old science that is still valid without any updated versions necessary
I also have deep rooted spiritual practice that helped me come closer to the quest of holistic way to heal. Initially I just wanted to do a diploma to help my family and never thought I would switch careers to pursue Ayurveda full time having had a fulfilling career and 2 kids. However, I was fortunate to complete Ayurveda LifeStyle Certification from Mount Madonna Institute and then went on to do advanced classical Ayurvedic training at Shubham Ayurveda, Fremont.
The classical Ayurvedic training at Shubham Ayurveda is from eminent and esteemed practitioners of India and U.S. It is a 5 year long program and is equivalent to the Ayurvedic Doctor level developed by National Ayurvedic Medical Association. During these 5 years I had the privilege of not only learning samhitas (ancient texts written by sages) but also closely monitoring various Vaidyas (Ayurvedic doctors) from both India and U.S on handling patients with various conditions and stages. The practical approach of various treatments during my internship in Pune, India was very enlightening.
With this knowledge I have gained for the past 6 years; I want to help people reach their destination of health physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
