Ayurveda is an alternative medicine system with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. Though I am not an expert, my wife Geetika and I follow certain principles at home that were handed down through generations (call them Grandma remedies or secrets to health). Time and again, I do research on some of what I know and am happy to find scientific studies that confirm the merits. 

Rajiv Narula received his Bachelor’s Degree with an Honors in Botany from the esteemed Presidency College (now Presidency University), Calcutta, India, in 2001. He went on to get a Masters in Biotechnology from GGD University, Chhattisgarh after which he graduated winning top honors (First Class – Gold Medal as University Topper) in 2003. He came to the US in Fall 2005 to pursue a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY. After completing a doctoral thesis on Pathogen Reduction and Recycling of Bedding Materials on Dairy Farms (2011), he joined SUNY Canton in Fall 2011 to teach Chemistry and Environmental Science. Teaching is his passion so he took Education classes at SLU to earn a (second) Masters in Education in 2020. Now an Associate Professor at SUNY Canton, he lives in Canton with his wife Geetika and 2 year old son, Rohan.
