IMG_3074.jpeg

Dr Bhattathiri is a qualified Ayurvedic Doctor*, hailing from the unique Ayurvedic tradition of Kerala, India.

He was born and initiated into the Vedic tradition of India at an early age, which gave him the appropriate knowledge of the Sanskrit language and Vedic texts. Both essential to an in-depth understanding and practice of Ayurveda.

After completing his Bachelor Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) degree at the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (Bangalore, India), he worked at various health and wellbeing Institutions.

He is committed to making a significant contribution to addressing and preventing the health and wellbeing challenges of our western life-style. His mission is to achieve this through a natural and integrative alternative medicine approach.

To this end, Dr Bhattathiri* applies his in-depth knowledge and clinical experience of Ayurveda, focussing on clinical practice, promotion of wellbeing, education and research.
