Dr. Akhilesh Varrier is a dedicated Ayurveda expert currently based out of Bangalore. His faith in Ayurveda runs deep since an early age. A keen Xenophile, Dr. Varrier likes to explore cultures and traditional music. Read his interview with nirogstreet.
Please tell us about your educational background and professional qualification briefly.
I was fortunate enough to be born in a pure Ayurvedic milieu. Being exposed to Ayurvedic principles and practices from as early as my childhood was impetus enough for me to later pursue the Ayurvedacharya Degree from Muniyal Institute Of Ayurveda Medical Sciences under the RGUHS, Bangalore.
Right after my B.A.M.S. education, I got the opportunity to work with some of the stalwarts of Ayurveda in South India. At present, I am working as senior production in charge and consultant with Purnayu Bioscience Pvt Ltd, Bangalore.
Dr. Varrier, why did you choose Ayurvedic practices?
It’s a privilege to be under the shadow of Ayurveda since the birth and taking it as my humble career nonetheless as the first choice.
What is your experience when it comes to treating patients? Do they trust the treatment?
Yes, they do. And I feel it’s a duty of the vaidya to convince the patient and win their confidence.
Any challenge that you face as a practitioner?
The lack of awareness about the principles of food and dietetics among the public.
Any out of ordinary situation that you have faced while treating a patient?
Nothing that I can remember.
How effective is traditional medicine as a cure?
100 percent! If the Padachathustayas are fulfilled and if the vaidya is able to administer the medicine at the right time and right stage of the disease with the right combination.
What do you think of ayurveda’s future and its role in integrated medicine?
Ayurveda is an extraordinary science with the power to uplift on its own and show the right testimony of a successful story in any circumstances. The contemporary sciences would be an added advantage for the betterment of diagnosis, choosing a medicine, the right way of administration and curing a disease.
Do you think Nirogstreet is making a difference by striving to mainstream closer to Ayurveda through dedicated technology platforms as well as connecting the community?
Yes, indeed working for connecting vaidyas from different parts of the world and exploring new dimensions of Ayurvedic wisdom is an incredible and necessary initiative.
What are your hobbies, Dr. Varrier?
I am a thorough follower of traditional music and the culture from PAN India.
