She wasn’t always about Ayurveda and tranquil living. Since the first day she stepped out of her home in Kerala, India she desired to come to America and live the American dream. She worked hard, day and night, to get what she always wanted. She married and arrived in “the republic of dreams” (to quote American writer, Anand Giridharadas).
After 10 years of grueling work in the Semiconductor Industry, constant migraines, a 16 hour work day, a neglected family and a pinched nerve; she needed a break. She decided to go back to the very place that she worked so hard to get out of, her childhood home.
She quit her high paying job and decided to stay in India for 2 years to come. There she realized that she didn't need any fancy pain killers to fix the symptoms of her migraines and pinched nerve instead she only needed to change her lifestyle to fix the root cause of her ailments.
It was during that time in India where she practiced and grew her interest in Ayurveda. She also realized how essential an integrated family is to peace and mental stability in the household. Material gain isn't everything.
After her layover in India, she came back to America where she wanted to start over and do it the Ayurvedic way. . With an overall desire to help her community, she became a teacher not only to maintain a low stress lifestyle but also to spend more time with her family cooking, doing yoga and maintaining daily routines. . Best of all, the neither the pinched nerve nor the migraines ever came back!!!!!
Some time later, Preethi noticed that those around her complained of similar diseases due to their hectic lifestyles. She attempted to preach to them how she fixed those problems, however, she realized that one-size-fits-all solution would not work. Thus, she began to explore the world of Ayurveda to gain the right knowledge to help each individual connect with nature, find their unique balance, and reach optimum health.
Currently, Preethi is an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (AHC) Intern with the California College of Ayurveda to pursue a proficient Ayurvedic Doctor, AyD degree.. She will be able to provide the unique tools necessary to support anyone and everyone, the ability to maintain health, rejuvenate energy, and prevent from disease.
"During a time of unknowns and isolation, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that our connection to nature is something not to take for granted. Ayurvedic principles and practices, through Kadambayurveda, can teach people how they can connect their body and minds to resonate with the frequency of nature. Thereby relieving themselves of disease, anxiety, fear, and depression."
