4th generation ayurvedic medical doctor


Hey there, I am Dr. Rekha Radhamony.

I’m here to help you live a happy, healthy, disease-free life with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda!

I believe the journey towards good health should be fun, simple, and uncomplicated and one must be able to seamlessly integrate it into everyday life!

I’m a 4th generation Ayurvedic doctor with a global practice spanning 59 countries, founder of Doctor Rekha Ayurveda products, expert advisor for Procter & Gamble for their Ayurvedic product line, and currently writing a book on busting myths around Ayurveda!

If you believe in the power of “Food as Medicine”, I am here to uplift you physically, mentally & spiritually with Ayurveda!

My ethos is simple – to provide an Ayurveda offering that is real and true to the Samhitas – the original scriptures of Ayurveda, which is different from what you have seen or heard in the name of “Ayurveda”.

We’ve got lifetimes to catch up on, so let’s get started!


Healing becomes holistic when physical health is understood in relation to the power of thoughts and emotions.

Real Ayurveda based on original scriptures



What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the holistic system of medicine that believes in treating the root cause of diseases, rather than the symptoms to prevent them from recurring in the future. Ayurveda means “science of life.” Unlike the usual treatment methods involving just medicines, Ayurveda believes in creating a balance of the mind, body and soul through a combination of food (Ahara) and lifestyle (Vihara) changes, meditation, herbs, Panchakarma and other therapies. 

What makes Ayurveda different from other systems of medicine?
What makes Ayurveda different from other systems of medicine?

Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine. It believes in finding the root cause of an illness rather than just treating the symptoms. What makes Ayurveda different from other systems of medicine is that it not only helps to treat diseases but also has elaborate protocols to help people live healthy lives and to prevent diseases in the future.

Do Ayurvedic medicines contain heavy metals and toxic ingredients?
Do Ayurvedic medicines contain heavy metals and toxic ingredients?

The Samhitas – original texts of Ayurveda do mention a combination of herbal and mineral medicines to treat diseases. But, with today’s lifestyle, a lot of patients may not be able to have strong medications. Dr. Rekha follows her family’s tradition of prescribing medicines prepared using only herbs. So, we do not use any medicines with heavy metals in our medicinal formulations. All our medicines are prepared with the finest quality ingredients at our oushadhasala (traditional medicine production facility), supervised by Dr. Rekha and her team of Ayurvedic doctors.   

Our treatment ethos is roga sarve api mandha agni – all diseases are caused by an imbalance in our digestive fire (aka gut health). We work primarily on improving gut health and therefore, do not prescribe any medicine that creates an overload on the liver, which is one of the most important organs of digestion. Hence, we take utmost care in making our medicines. Apart from avoiding mineral medicines, we also do not use Ayurvedic herbs, such as ashwagandha, shatavari, etc. that can affect metabolism and digestive functions. 

Should I be a vegetarian to follow Ayurvedic practices?
Should I be a vegetarian to follow Ayurvedic practices?

Not necessarily. Ayurveda does not believe in “one-size-fits-all” approach. It is not a religious science, but the science of life. So, it is a myth that one should be vegetarian to follow an Ayurvedic diet plan.  The system of medicine has elaborate protocols on all kinds of food a person normally eats and their effects on the body and the body processes. The only rule in Ayurveda is to consume what is staple for an individual. If you’re habituated to eating non-vegetarian food all your life, you can still consume it while following an Ayurvedic diet. However, a sudden switch from being a vegetarian to a non-vegetarian or vice versa is not recommended. 

Can Ayurveda help with mental health issues?

Yes. Ayurveda involves the care of physical, mental and spiritual health. Ayurveda helps with mental health issues through lifestyle practices, diet, Ayurvedic medicines, self-care and meditation. Dr. Rekha helps heal mental health issues, like psychosis, neurosis, schizophrenia, depression and anxiety, primarily with food because according to Ayurveda, the gut and mind are connected. When you treat the gut, you treat the mind too. Dr. Rekha’s three-month gut health program will help you if you have mental health issues.

What are the classical Ayurvedic texts?

The classical Ayurvedic texts provide a large amount of knowledge regarding health and healing. The classical Ayurvedic texts known as Brihattraya are the Caraka Samhita, the Sushruta Samhita and the Ashtanga Hridayam written by Charaka, Sushruta and Vagbhata, respectively.
