Dipika's Introduction to Ayurveda

Dipika was a resident Naturopath in a yoga ashram community clinic in India when her own chronic health challenges saw her seek and have her pulse read by a World Renowned Ayurvedic Physician Dr Pankaj Naram. It was a succinct healing moment that saw her head on a whole new trajectory and apprentice with this expert Pulse Reader for the next decade. “He read my pulse and I felt so known and completely understood. My healing began and I knew I had met my teacher. I was a sponge and wanted to learn with him”. (for more see video interview).

A Deeper Dive into Healing

Having always been drawn into ancient healing mysteries and how the human has potential for inner healing Ayurveda was a whole, complete philosophy to live and practice medically. However, yearning to go even deeper Dipika was introduced to Anthroposophic Medicine. She attended a talk at her local Steiner School on the outbreak of pertussis which had divided the community. It was given by Pedagogical Anthroposophical Medical Practitioner, Irmhild Kleinhenz. “It resonated with such fundamental truth as to why some people become ill with contagious disease and others do not, that I knew I had to pursue this spiritual science to refine my work that it be of the calibre I was compelled to pursue”. This was about an essence in healing even more subtle than digestion, immunity and emotional intelligence.


In busy clinical practice in Geelong and Melbourne Dipika treats patients from all over Australia and globally. Incorporating all the healing wisdom of Ayurvedic medicine and Anthroposophical medicine she practices A-your-veda. This means it is unique and tailored for YOU as no two people on the planet are the same.  Using diet, herbal remedies, home remedies, Ayurvedic therapies and anthroposophical medicine remedies she has outstanding patient results in acute, chronic and degenerative diseases.

Dipika is committed to and understands, the impulse to develop and learn all our lives.   She works collaboratively with renowned Ayurvedic physician Dr. Smita Naram (in 2014 Dipika and Dr Naram made a series of 7 episodes of Womens Health related conditions for Indian TV).

She continues to be mentored by Irmhild Kleinhenz in Anthroposophical Medicine and participates in the IPMT (International Post Graduate Medical Training in Anthroposophical Medicine) under Dr. Michaela Gloekler in Australia and India. Dipika has completed:

  • Advanced Diploma of Applied Science in Naturopathy

Ayurveda and Yoga

These are sister sciences.

"Dipika in my experience 'walks her talk'. Her insight into the troubles of the body, mind and soul, gained through her quite unique gift in the ancient system of pulse diagnosis, identifies imbalances that I am barely aware of. As a practitioner myself, I am impressed by her depth of knowledge but it is her practical advise and recommendation, that obviously comes from personal experience (walking the talk), adjusting diet and lifestyle sometimes in small yet profound ways that I appreciate most. The depth of touch in her treatments reflects all of the above as well."
