``From Moolchand Hospital to One of the Top Ten Authors of the World``
For the past decade or so, he has been at the forefront of a major trend in holistic healing. Since the early 1980s, Chopra has successfully combined his impeccable credentials as a practicing endocrinologist with his exploration of mind / body medicine.` By doing so, he dramatically influenced many in traditional medical circles and helped bring the enormous benefits of holistic medicine to the general public`s attention.
Chopra created a paradigm for exploring the healing process ` a model he calls `Quantum Healing`. He recalls: `As doctors we are taught to prescribe tranquilizers for people who are feeling anxious to promote tranquility. We give sleeping pills to people with insomnia. Quantum Healing looks past all the wonder drugs and modern technology to a natural way of healing which speaks of an integration of mind and body.`
Rather than turn his back on his conventional training, he extended his practice to bring together the best of ancient wisdom and modern science. In 1984, he helped to introduce ayurvedic medicine to the United States and within a year, he established an Ayurvedic Health Centre of Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He was also the founding President of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine.
Since that time, he has emerged as one of the world`s leading proponents of this innovative combination of Eastern and Western healing. Chopra combines ancient mind/body wisdom with current anti-aging research to show that the effects of aging are largely preventable. By changing your perception of aging and by being aware of your body and how it processes intelligence and experience, you will change how you age.
As of 2014 Chopra serves as an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School and at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He participates annually as a lecturer at the Update in Internal Medicine event sponsored by Harvard Medical School and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He lectures around the world making presentations to major corporations and organizations such as the World Health Organization in Geneva, the United Nations, and London`s Royal Society of Medicine,` as well as a number of major US medical institutions.
