By training, I am an American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years in India I grew up with non-chemical alternatives for common ailment. As a mom I have tried to incorporate that for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both…for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I suggest natural alternatives (such as diet and nutrition change, yoga, behavioral and parenting change) first. 

A few folks associate the word “natural” exclusively with “no shots”. While I am open to alternative schedules and working with the parents, I am foremost an advocate for the child and hence I do recommend vaccination. I strive to use only preservative-free vaccines. The safety & benefit from these vaccines far outweigh the tragedies of not vaccinating which I have experienced first hand. Thus, my motto “Prevention is better than cure“.

In western training we are raised to think that “health is the absence of symptoms and problems”. But eastern sensibilities has educated me that “Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well-being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.” This implies that healing is not a “one-pill-fits-all”, but a personalized experience for each child.
