Ayurvedic Doctor Ram Bhandari holds distinguished qualifications in Ayurvedic medicine from the most reputable universities and hospitals in India and Nepal. He won a competitive scholarship to study Ayurvedic medicine and completed six years of medical training in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Following his medical degree, Ram specialised in Panchakarma (detoxification and rejuvenation therapy) through advanced training at the Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda Foundation, a Centre of Excellence in Kerala, Southern India.
Ram went on to become a founding member and Panchakarma specialist in the largest Ayurvedic and Panchakarma private hospital in Nepal, the Ojus Ayurveda Hospital and Research Centre in Kathmandu.
Ram later practised at an Ayurvedic Panchakarma resort on Madeira Island, Portugal, where he provided Ayurvedic consultations and treatments to guests from all over Europe. He also lectured in an Ayurvedic certification course at Associação Luso-Brasileira de Ayurvédica, Lisbon, and delivered workshops and consultations in Germany and the Netherlands.
Ram has designed and delivered Ayurvedic training workshops in Europe, South America and Central America. The courses that he taught in Colombia include Ayurvedic Practitioner Certification, Panchakarma, Shirodhara, Ayurvedic beauty therapy, Ayurvedic cookery, and Vastu Shastra. Ram has also taught Ayurveda to Yoga teachers in Nicaragua.
Before moving to the Sunshine Coast with his beautiful family, Ram was based on the Gold Coast where he managed a successful Ayurveda centre for five years. He was among the most sought-after holistic practitioners and Ayurveda doctors in the Gold Coast region. He offered consultations, detox programs, Ayurveda courses, and regular workshops at the Gold Coast Yoga Centre, one of the well-established yoga schools on the Gold Coast.
Ram has a strong desire to support clients in their learning about the benefits of a holistic approach to healing, and to promote Ayurveda practices globally. With this aim in mind, he started an Ayurveda blog in 2011 (www.ayurmantra.com) where you can find hundreds of articles about Ayurveda, yoga, herbs, natural remedies and more. His articles have also been published on other online sites and in print magazines.
