Please tell us about your educational background and professional qualifications.
I did my B.Sc. from Madhav Science College in 2002. I studied B.A.M.S. at Pandit Khushilal Sharma Ayurveda College and passed out in 2010. I also have several other qualifications Diploma in Nutrition and health education (DNHE).

Dr. Multani, why did you choose Ayurvedic practice?
It is a good question actually, because very few of Ayurveda graduates hardly practice pure Ayurveda, as less as 20% of them. I, on the other hand, chose it wholeheartedly and without any second thoughts since I understand Ayurveda well and I consider myself an expert in this health science. I believe that this is the best medical science to serve humanity which treats illnesses without causing any side effects.
What is your experience when it comes to treating patients? Do they trust the treatment?
The trust is definitely growing nowadays, especially in people who are educated and are becoming aware about Ayurveda.
Any challenge that you face as a practitioner?
I think we need to work toward image-correction and eliminate misconceptions about Ayurveda from people’s minds. It will not only benefit the society, but the practitioners as well.
Any out of ordinary situation that you have faced while treating a patient?
To cure a patient is always an extraordinary thing in itself, for ordinary hiccups in health, why would you even need a doctor?
In your view, Dr. Multani, how effective is traditional medicine as a cure?
In case of non-communicable diseases, traditional medicine is hugely effective in my opinion. If researches are done well, I think Ayurveda will replace antibiotics in the coming times.
What do you think of Ayurveda’s future and its role in integrated medicine?
Ayurveda has a golden future. This says it all.
Do you think Nirogstreet is making a difference by bridging the trust-deficit between people and practitioners through dedicated technology platforms and knowledge programs?
I think Nirogstreet is doing exactly what’s needed to be done in Ayurveda today. I like your concept. I pray that Nirogstreet meets its aims and objectives with its meaningful initiatives toward the cause of Ayurveda and wellness in the society.
Any hobbies or activities you engage in, outside your professional life?
I like reading and writing, and perhaps more so because knowledge itself is the calling of my life. By attaining more wisdom and know-how, I’d serve my patients and the humanity just better.
What message would you like to convey to the people on Wellbeing?
I’d like to convey this message to the people that without health, all your efforts for yourself and the society are futile. Nobody can be your better friend or ally than your own health. Your body is the place where your whole consciousness resides. It is your duty to look after its health well. So that you too do well as a person.
