AMITA S. NATHWANI, M.A. (Ayur)
Ayurvedic Medicine and Nutrition Consultant
Amita is the owner of Surya Health and Wellness, where she practices Ayurvedic medicine and nutrition consulting. Of Indian origin, she received her Ayurvedic education in both India and North America, an experience that has given her a unique perspective and allowed her to remain true to the purity of Ayurvedic knowledge while deeply understanding its application in the Western world. With the support of her two teachers, Dr. Hemant Gupta, BAMS and Dr. Shirish Nathwani, MD, she has been practicing Ayurveda since 2004.
Amita works in both traditional and conventional modalities, her specialty being Digestive disorders and Psychology. She begins with digestion and incorporates diet, lifestyle, and—most importantly—state of mind to gain a greater understanding of the whole person. Important to her approach is recognizing stress, grief, addictions, and relationships as factors affecting health. She helps each client come to greater understanding and acceptance of life and all its circumstances in order to facilitate the healing process.
Amita's personal experience with loss has taken her through a journey of self-exploration. It is through this, she is able to provide compassion and understanding to those needing to find solace in the uncertainty of life.
In addition to her private practice, Amita is Adjunct Faculty with the Family Medicine Integrative Medicine Fellowship at Banner Health, University of Arizona and Faculty at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture.
