The Gurukul of Holistic Lifestyle Medicine

Welcome to "The Gurukul of Holistic and Lifestyle Medicine", a system of education that keeps the age-old essence of gurukul intact but also has a practical twist to it.
Gurukul is an ancient Indian education system. The word "gurukul" literally means the family of the guru. Ideally, gurukul is residential in nature, which means that students (shishya) stay in proximity to the teacher (guru) so that each of them can grow together and learn together. However, looking at the practical aspect and respecting the fact that each of us have come from difference spaces, our gurukul brings in the same concepts, except that it's going to be a non-residential concept.

The Purpose of Our Gurukul

Over the years, we have had immense success with managing people’s health from all across the globe – from obesity and diabetes to cancer, through a basic shift in their lifestyle. We have designed personalised plans that revolve around nutrition, exercise, sleep and emotional health, which is backed by our elite integrative team of clinical nutritionists, doctors, dietitians, emotional healers, homeopathic and other alternative medicine practitioners and lifestyle experts. As we continue to gain success in giving people their health back through lifestyle, we also have people from all over the world come to us with a passion and desire to learn about health in a holistic way. Thus, we built this Gurukul with our integrative team of experts. We have understood the importance of a holistic approach towards disease management and prevention and thus our teachings are based on principles of mind-body connection, nature and the four pillars of health. It's a way of learning about your own health, so that there is a chance to prevent illness and possibly heal.

Birth of Gurukul

With thorough training and years of experience, our integrative team of experts have handled patients at a global level, who suffer from various chronic lifestyle illnesses. We have seen first-hand, how following a holistic approach has healed and managed patients’ conditions, who earlier struggled with various lifestyle disorders. This has piqued the interest of many of our clients, who were keen to learn about what we do and how to heal holistically. So, we, Luke Coutinho and Dr Akshat Chadha co-founded the Gurukul, with the clear intention of educating and creating awareness on holistic lifestyle medicine.

We believe that true healing of an individual begins, when all aspects of physical health (nutrition and exercise), as well as wellness (emotional, spiritual, occupational, environmental, social, physical and intellectual), are addressed. This is exactly what “Holistic Lifestyle Medicine” is and what the teachings at the Gurukul are going to be about. It will focus on teaching you about everything it takes to heal the body as a whole, by addressing the mind, body, spirit and emotions to heal the body from its core.

Our Gurukul Model

Our Gurukul is built on a model that's backed by our integrative faculty of doctors, clinical dietitians, emotional therapists, yoga therapists, and alternative medicine practitioners who have carefully designed each module. The Gurukul Faculty will prepare you for a new religion - Lifestyle. All our teachings are based on the concept of Holistic Lifestyle Medicine, where we focus on everything it takes to heal a disease from its root and not just "treat" it.
This is not a replacement for medicines or any line of treatment for any existing condition. In fact, it aims at working parallelly, addressing the root cause of the disease and educating about the possible side-effects.

There are some great systems of medicine like Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Functional Medicine, Allopathy, but they all work in isolation. Whereas, when there's a patient who is suffering from a disease, one should understand that the body needs a to be looked at as a whole. This is the idea behind our Gurukul, where we integrate everything to follow the best practice from each system of medicine and address the root cause to heal the person physically, emotionally and spiritually and not just the symptom.

Our Gurukul is not only about managing disease but about making every day healthy lifestyle choices a habit. The first step to change is awareness. With all the information pointing at a poor lifestyle being the root cause of most of the ailments, at the Gurukul we promote a positive behaviour change, which helps to prevent diseases.
Even with disease, only when people lose hope in conventional medicine, do they turn to an alternative treatment path. We should not wait until this happens. The moment an illness begins, the patients and their family should be encouraged to focus on lifestyle changes that involve their nutrition, exercise, sleep and emotional health along with medication. Everything should work hand in hand and in the interest of improving health.

Education is the most powerful tool which you can use to empower yourself to change your mindset and lifestyle. Once you understand that everything is connected in the human body, you will learn that it’s not just about managing the symptoms, but healing the disease from its root. At the Gurukul, we give you the power by imparting the right knowledge to help you manage your everyday health and the health of your loved ones. The magic drug is in your hands, so make a change right now!

Gurukul Courses

We, at the Gurukul, would like to maintain a simple yet classic education system. Keeping the gurukul culture alive, we will practice sitting in a classroom and learning, wearing simple and comfortable clothing and maintaining a pleasant atmosphere. Being humble and respectful towards each other is of great value to us and we'd like to maintain this throughout the Gurukul. Our Gurukul is beyond a classroom training and lecture. We will encourage interactive sessions and healthy conversations as we brainstorm on concepts of health and disease. We believe that in order to achieve anything in life: FOCUS, COMMITMENT and DEDICATION are primary. So, our sessions start with a brief meditation/Dhyana to enhance your focus on the subject being taught and end with a gratitude prayer.

Meet Our Instructors

Our Gurukul instructors are an integrative team of medical practitioners, certified nutritionists, clinical dietitians, lifestyle experts and exercise and yoga therapists who have carefully curated the courses, designed the curriculum and will elaborately explain the content to you.
