He studied conventional Western medicine in his native India, and then moved to the US aged 23 and proved himself as a successful doctor. But he found himself paying more and more attention to traditional Indian medicine – Ayurveda.
He started incorporating it into his treatments and philosophy of life, giving up smoking, coffee and alcohol for meditation and yoga.
Through dozens of best-selling books, his radio show, lectures and public speaking engagements Chopra has become known and respected around the world. He describes his mission as bridging the technological miracles of the west, with the wisdom of the east.
