speaker

Dr. Nimin Sreedhar

Founder, Ekavaidya

Dr. Nimin Sreedhar is the son of (late) Dr. Sreedharan P.D., a renowned allopathic physician from Vypin, Kerala. Dr. Nimin always had an affinity towards the great wisdom of ancient Indian Sciences from a very young age. So when initiated into Ayurveda by (late) Prof. C. R. Agniveś, it felt like homecoming for him. Dr. Nimin belongs to the first batch of Nangelil Ayurveda Medical College, where he was also the College Union Chairman for the year 2003-04. Being an avid reader and writer, Dr. Nimin realized that there were no enough players to propagate genuine Ayurveda using the print and digital media, despite having a huge public demand on one side and expert physicians and prestigious institutions on the other. So, he decided to shape his career to bridge this gap and thereby help the real stakeholders in keeping up with the rising global awareness and utility of Ayurveda.
