The awareness of holistic health and wellness has become prevalent in people’s lives in recent years, even more so with the advent of Covid. It is not however a new trend; nurturing good health was a way of life in ancient India where Ayurvedic wellness was practiced thousands of years ago.
Still widely used in India today, Ayurvedic medicine has changed and refined over the years and is now available outside of India, including in Thailand. Meet Dr. Dimple Arora, an Ayurvedic medicine and wellness practitioner.
Educated and trained in Pune, India, in advanced Ayurvedic medicine at the Internal Academy of Ayurveda, earning the degree of Master of Ayurvedic Medicine (MDAM), Dr. Arora followed her studies with a Diet and Nutrition course on line from London.
Talking with Dr. Arora about her work, one is immediately taken by her enthusiasm and dedication to her craft. She says it has been her life’s mission and passion since early age. Dr. Arora, who was born and has lived in Thailand most of her life, spent her formative years studying in India at the Himalayan foothills. When asked what compelled her to take this path in life, she discloses how she was inspired by observing her grandmother heal herself from numerous inflammations, the body having had rejected medicines given by her doctors. She knew then what she wanted to do with her life, “It is my Path,” says Dr. Arora with a smile.
Dr. Arora started her career in Thailand consulting at the Suchada Marva Healing Center in Bangkok, at a time of little awareness of Ayurvedic healing. Much of her work was freelancing, giving talks at hospitals and spas all over the country – “spreading the knowledge,” she says. In 2010 she set up her own wellness center after the launch of her book the previous year, ‘A New Age Manual for the New Mothers - Postnatal and Beyond.’
It was interesting to learn from Dr. Arora the numerous benefits of Ayurvedic medicine such as improving blood plasma, diffusing common infections and more. Her long research of Ayurvedic healing culminated in Dr. Arora’s production of her own line of what she calls ‘super food supplements.’ This process evolved gradually after treating and healing her elderly mother-in-law’s chronic conditions holistically. The super foods supplements are created at a special kitchen set up at her home.
“It is a niche business,” she explains, one that adheres to primary sources in nature, emphasized by Dr. Arora’s motto “upgrade to purity.” The wide range of Super Food supplement products can be ordered and purchased on line.
Always innovative, seeking ways to transmit and teach the values of holistic healing, Dr. Arora launched in late 2019 a program she calls ‘Ayurveda Prevention Power’ offered twice a year, a course that she had distilled to make it engaging, and teaches people to look after themselves. The course also offers a healing kitchen workshop, a favorite which she seems to value most.
Dr. Arora’s wellness center known as ‘Golden Awareness Wellness & Urban Ayurveda’ located in Sukhumvit Soi 39 offers treatments, consultation, natural food supplements, workshops and retreats, is a welcome presence of the new age (and ancient) approach to staying healthy and fit. How does she advertise? It is mostly by word of mouth and also via social media.
When asked what her plans for the future are, Dr. Arora says that she would like to become a trainer in her field and set up an academy in Bangkok like the one she had attended in Pune. She has a network of teachers ready, but the time has to be right. Dr. Arora wants to make it a niche program, focus on her goals and not waste time and energy on peripheral issues. Her message is, “Getting the knowledge out and let the people come and learn.”
