Ayurveda Doctor (Vaidya), Traditional Indian Medicine
Bachelor in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) from Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar, India
Be first graduated in International Business in France and did a MBA in Manchester, UK. After 10 years of wandering in various countries and continents, she finally found what she was longing and searching for: Ayurveda, the Science of Life; the precious knowledge of body and mind that reveals the inner being, guides all along this life, and helps to understand our purpose.
She went to Jamnagar (India) to study this knowledge in a more clinical and scholarly manner at the Gujarat Ayurved University with 2 Ayurvedic hospitals attached, doing her Ayurveda internship in departments such as general medicine, panchakarma, surgery, ENT, gynaecology, obstetrics, and paediatrics.
After 6 years of study, Be came to Auroville to serve at Santé, Auroville Institute for Integral Health for consultations and research and in the forest in Pitchandikulam and Baraka to tune with the plants. She helps her patients to understand where the disunion lies, which Dosha or nature in the body – (Vata/Air, Pitta/Fire or Kapha/ Water & Earth) creates the imbalance, the symptoms and eventually the diseases in the body and mind.
Be’s personal focus is tuning with the plants, to understand their qualities, and how their energy can be transmitted for healing without sacrificing their life.
