Dr. Achyuthan Eswar
Integrative Medicine Physician & Co-founder, NaturopathYoga.org & PHC Lifestyle Clinic
In 2014, Dr. Achyuthan’s grandfather was diagnosed with internal bleeding from the side effects of a long term antihypertensive medication. After weeks of vomiting blood, when doctors couldn’t help him anymore, he upgraded to a Whole Food Plant Based diet under the guidance of Dr. Subramaniam at Pavitra Nature and Yogha Hospital. In just ten days, not only did the blood vomiting stop, his blood pressure returned to normal after years, and his medications were reduced. His wife, and Dr. Achyuthan’s grandmother, was diabetic and brought her blood sugar levels under control, reduced her insulin intake by 2/3rds and almost eliminated her medications.
Inspired by his grandparents, Dr. Achyuthan decided to dedicate his life to empowering people to #BeYourOwnDoc using the latest, evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine. He completed his BNYS at India’s leading College of Naturopathy and Yoga, SDMCNYS. After staying back to head a 100-member team in setting up an exhibition on Naturopathy and Yoga for the International Conference on Yoga and Naturopathy, Dr. Achyuthan co-founded PHC Lifestyle Clinic and NaturopathYoga.org
