The Healing Catalyst

Taking charge of our health is a big responsibility—one that most of us aren’t sure how to navigate. We need a catalyst to spark inner transformation and help us take control of our health. We need a Healing Catalyst. Enter Dr. Avanti Kumar-Singh. Throughout her 20 years of practicing Western medicine, Dr. Kumar-Singh has also studied traditional, ancient healing practices of the East, with a focus on Ayurveda, which she now teaches to students and holistic practitioners across the world. 

In The Healing Catalyst, Dr. Kumar-Singh is demystifying Ayurveda and other integrated medicine, showing how these simple, ancient practices are the key to unlocking a healthy modern life. The best part of all? Anyone can heal themselves because it starts with you. Over the two decades of her training, study, and research, Kumar-Singh has shared her expertise with Fortune 500 companies, at elite undergraduate and graduate institutions, and at prestigious industry and medical conferences. She has been featured in the Huffington Post, goop, Thrive Global and mindbodygreen and served as the co-lead facilitator of the Faculty Scholars Program in Integrative Healthcare at the OSHER Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern Medicine.
