Dr. Soman Nadhan began his studies of Ayurveda at the age of fifteen, as is traditional in India. His family included three generations of physicians, so he was fortunate to learn much about the practical approach of Ayurveda from them as well as many other Ayurvedic scholars. In 1980, he graduated from the Dhanwantari Ayurveda College in Kerala, India, known to be the cradle of Ayurveda, especially Pancha Karma therapies. He spent the next nine years as chief of staff of Amritam Ayurveda Hospital.
In 1990, Dr. Soman started practicing Ayurveda in the United States. Since then, thousands of patients from all over the country have benefited from his unique healing methods. He says that after living in America for twenty plus years he is able to understand "the heartbeat and the lifestyle of Western society".
With over thirty years of experience, Dr. Soman has created a new approach to the healing art without stepping away from the fundamentals of Ayurveda. He has seen a high percentage of success in the treatment of emotional and neurological diseases, such as anxiety, depression, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's and also in injury-related problems and chronic forms of body pain such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, herniated discs and joint pain. His practice is a gracious blend of modern understanding and respect for tradition.
