The profession of a doctor comes with a boatload of responsibilities. Besides, there is no one attribute that makes an excellent doctor.
And Dr. Sharad Kulkarni is known to be a maestro in the directory of Ayurveda Doctors. Besides, he is a Best-Selling Author, Blogger, Vlogger, and Speaker, who has presented on several national and international platforms.
A sneak-peek at Dr. Sharad Kulkarni’s journey so far
Around two decades back, when Modern Medicine was taking the world by storm, Dr. Sharad decided to make his mark in the world’s ancient healing science; Ayurveda.
Also known as the ‘Science of Life’ and ‘Mother of All Healing,’ Ayurveda originated in India over 5,000 years ago.
Since childhood, Dr. Sharad had a slight inclination to learn the nuts and bolts of this ancient science. Apart from his academics, he would sink his teeth into reading books on Ayurveda-Yoga. He was hellbent on turning his passion into a profession. So, post-schooling and pre-university, he joined SDM Ayurveda College and Hospital, Udupi, to seek his graduation. However, this was just the beginning of Dr. Sharad’s journey.
Later, he enrolled in the Government Ayurveda Medical College, Bengaluru, aiming for a post-graduation degree in Ayurvedic Surgery (Shalya Tantra). After completing his M.S., he enrolled to pursue a Ph.D. in Shalya Tantra. During this tenure, he has been involved in many innovations, fueling his earnest desire to take Ayurveda to the next level.
Unstoppable, he continued to ascend the several rungs of the ladder and founded Jeevottama Health and Wellness Clinic in Bengaluru. This is where he earned the title of being an acclaimed doctor in the field of Ayurveda. With over a decade of experience, he has treated more than 5,000 patients so far.
Here are some (of the numerous) accomplishments he has added to his hall of fame.
- One of the youngest Ayurveda Doctors who was invited to speak on Ayurveda in London
- Author of the Amazon Best-Selling books: The Blockbuster Health Volume 1 and The Blockbuster Health Volume 2
– Awarded as the Best Young Researcher in Ayurveda Surgery (Ayurveda Shalya Tantra) by IJRULA
- Chanakya Awardee (Jury Special Awards for Healthcare through Ayurveda) by Public Relations Council of India
- One of the top-rated Ayurveda Consultant digitally in Bengaluru
- A keynote speaker on healthcare in various programs across India
– Associated with the leading Indian beauty brand Kama Ayurveda
However, despite his jumbo folder of accomplishments, Dr. Sharad remains humble and committed to his work.
When asked, he quoted, “In spite of being a dynamic and proven science for centuries, Ayurveda still remains inglorious because of lack of awareness. People seek to obtain quick relief, not knowing that the illness might backtrack if the root cause is not uprooted. Ayurveda is based on natural elements and is completely organic. I feel privileged to have been endowed with such trophies. But this is not my ultimate goal. I will call myself an achiever when I succeed in influencing millions of people globally to opt for Ayurveda as a healing methodology. Not only this, we all must adopt this Indian science as our ‘way of life’. This will be a golden feather in my hat, in our hat!”
He adds, ‘Evidence-based medicine is the need of the hour.’
