Meenakshi, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I grew up surrounded by an Ayurveda and Homeopathy. My mom is a homeopathy doctor and, I am an Ayurveda Practitioner and a Panchkarma (Detox) Specialist. Ayurveda is the science of life which endows us with those indispensable tools to live a long healthy and meaningful life.
I was very keen on pursuing the scientific approaches in Alternative health care since from the inception of my career. During my learning journey, I learned the nitty grittier of Ayurveda principles, the role of right diet, Ayurvedic therapies and Panchakarma. I simply fell in love with the Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness. After getting my bachelor’s degree in Ayurveda, I wanted to have a deeper level of understanding of this science of life. Hence, I ended up pursuing MD in Ayurveda and got specializing in learning disabilities and, Enuresis (Bed wetting) in children. That was a huge transformation for me where I learned the vital role of diet, herbs, life style and mental health in the well-being.
Marriage brought me to the United States. As a new immigrant, I perceived the requisite of fully Qualified Ayurveda practitioners to help people suffering from chronic illnesses using a holistic approach. Also, I wanted to deliver the authentic knowledge of Ayurveda to the community. And this resulted in the creation of AyurRoots Ayurveda Wellness. At AyurRoots, we offer a unique approach to one’s health and wellness. We combine the age old wisdom of Ayurveda with the right diet according to body type, season and health, Ayurveda Therapies and provide an individualized wellness plan that fits one’s lifestyle and needs.

Dealing with illness is certainly not easy. Many people come to AyurRoots Ayurveda Wellness Center simply because they are out of medical options or they have given up on whatever treatment plan they are on. We have many clients who have chronic health conditions. Here at AyurRoots Wellness Center – it is our goal to educate and inform health seekers about longevity secrets of Ayurveda & provide optimum health naturally via Ayurveda which leaves us better self-sufficient.
Has it been a smooth road?
I am absolutely convinced that smooth, linear paths of evolution happen only in mathematical hypotheses or in dreams. The journey has been composed of cliffs, Mobius strips, and surprise pitfalls. Lack of proper awareness is the major challenge.
Ayurveda is still unknown to the majority of the people in the Western world including common man and other health care providers. This lack of exposure has been more challenging as insurance companies do not cover Ayurveda treatments in their healthcare plans. However, now there is an increase in awareness about Ayurveda and other Complementary and alternative health care services.
