Why do I still have chronic health issues? 




Why is my health not improving?  

I’m not asked this question often enough. Mostly, people ask me “what herb or treatment can I take” [for a specific health issue or disease].  A better question would be "what are the causes of my health condition?”


When you know the causes, you can remove them but if you don’t know them or don’t want to accept them as causes then you can never recover.


Additionally, if your body is not healthy such as not digesting well, sleeping well or eliminating (detoxing) well then it’s going to be difficult for the body to recover from a chronic health issue or even a bacterial infection.


According to Ayurveda, in simple terms, there are stages of treatment for most chronic health conditions. 

  • Remove all known causes - wrong diet, wrong habit, wrong environment, etc. 
  • Treat the body (before the condition) - digestion, sleep, elimination, etc. 
  • Treat the specific condition(s) - a system, an organ, tissue, etc. 
  • Support the body after recovery - nutrition, digestion, elimination, etc. 

In other words, only treating your major health condition is an incomplete approach, thus, often unsuccessful. 


If you need assistance to identify the causes or your health conditions, treating your body holistically and addressing your major health issues, please contact me.

How to Stay Balanced in the Summer

Summer is a time to slow down, eat less, drink more and make an effort to stay cool. Use cooling foods, get up early and avoid working outside during the day. Additionally, it is best to wear thin cotton clothing and avoid any synthetic material.  On hot days, take a cool shower, go swimming or jump in a cold Jacuzzi!  Read more.


New Testimonials​


"I developed this “heat rash” and I tried to treat it myself with no success. I went to the doctors 5 times over the next 3 weeks, but it only got worse and spread after I took the half dozen prescriptions of steroids and anti-fungal pills and creams they gave me.  Khabir provided an anti-fungal tea blend that he ask me to apply to my skin and drink for 7 days. I followed his advice and it cleared up in about 4 days completely. Thank you Khabir for clearing my condition and restoring my peace of mind! "
John Schindler, Founder of GoBeyond Foods - Oxnard CA, July 2017
