Journey into Ayurveda
Dr. Meghana Narayana, a dedicated and accomplished Ayurvedic physician, hails from the picturesque town of Kuduremukh in Chikmagalur, Karnataka, India. Her remarkable journey in the field of Ayurvedic medicine is a testament to her unwavering commitment to the ancient healing tradition and her passion for learning and teaching.
Meghana's educational journey began with her pursuit of a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) at S. D. M College of Ayurveda, one of the top-ranked Ayurveda colleges in India situated in one of the oldest cities of Southern India i.e. Udupi. Her time at the university laid a strong foundation for her career in Ayurveda, instilling in her the principles and practices of this ancient holistic healing system.
Study of Ksharasutra
The turning point in Meghana's career came when she received a prestigious scholarship from the Government of India under the 'Guru-Shishya Parampara' program. This scholarship afforded her the opportunity to study Ksharasutra, a specialised branch of Ayurvedic medicine dedicated to ano-rectal surgery.
She embarked on this transformative journey under the tutelage of renowned Ayurvedic surgeon Dr. Indubhai Dave, in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Under Dr. Dave's mentorship, Meghana gained profound knowledge and expertise in Ksharasutra and honed her surgical skills. During her internship, she completed over 2,500 surgeries, a remarkable achievement that spoke volumes about her dedication and competence.
Mentoring to-be doctors
Meghana's thirst for knowledge and her quest for excellence did not end there. She continued to expand her horizons and deepen her understanding of Ayurveda. Driven by her passion for Ayurvedic medicine, she pursued a postgraduate degree. She earned her Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) in Sushruta Samhita, delving into the ancient Ayurvedic texts and developing a comprehensive understanding of Ayurvedic theory and practice.
With her rich knowledge and extensive experience, Meghana was keen to share her expertise with the next generation of Ayurvedic practitioners. For the past seven years, she has dedicated herself to educating and mentoring Ayurveda medical students at the esteemed J S S Ayurveda Medical College, Mysore. Her role as an educator allowed her to instil in her students the same level of commitment, precision, and passion that she exhibited throughout her journey.
