Born into a family of Ayurvedic doctors, Dr Rekha's passion led her into the world of health and wellness, where she learnt and mastered Ayurveda, Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, helping people around the world to live a healthier and happier life.

Her first assignement as Ayurvedic Doctor was at her own family owned clinic, Acharya Ayurveda & Panchakarma (www.acharyaayurveda.in)
in Trivandrum, Kerala, where she got trained by her father Acharya Adinadhan Nair for a year before carving her niche in the healthcare industry in Dubai.
Over the course of 10 years, her work has caught the attention of many, opening up avenues to help people across the world as Ayurveda & Lifestyle Medicine practitioner along with numerous fronts, including corporate health assignments for VLCC Healthcare, Emirates NBD, AXA Insurance and other multinational companies

Dr Rekha is a spokesperson who openly discusses basic lifestyle changes one can incorporate in daily life to help prevent, manage and reverse chronic diseases. She initially shared these on her blog page, which were then published by Huffington Post.
In the last three years she has embarked on conducting health and wellness talks, and webinars, where she teaches how to focus on simple things in lifestyle, with facts and tools to bring about lifelong health and happiness.
She is the first Malayali Ayurvedic Doctor to conduct these classes internationally. Dr Rekha has hosted successful talks for corporates like AXA Insurance, Unilever, Glaxo SmithKline, Samsung Electronics, Emirates NBD, etc to name a few.
