I am a very traditional person and belong to a small town near New Delhi. I have always been keen to learn and explore more on traditional and cultural things. I have always found that the traditions did have some meaning in maintenance of our health. I have done my bachelors in pharmacy in modern medicines and master in pharmacy in Ayurveda therefore have a dual knowledge of modern as well as complimentary system of medicines. I worked in pharmaceutical research in drug discovery from plant sources, herbal formulation development, quality control and standardization of herbal extracts, isolation and purification of chemical constituents from plant extracts. My PhD was “Investigation of Aboriginal Australian and Indian Ayurvedic plants for the management of type 2 diabetes”.

I have been passionate for traditional, herbal and nutritional therapies and always wanted to explore the ayurvedic philosophies in management of diseases mainly for the metabolic and neurological disorders.
