180: Bridging Modern Medicine with Ancient Healing to Feel Like Yourself Again  with Dr. Nisha Khanna

by neeta bhushan


Quote: “I think Ayurveda is a complete healing system. It is one of the most ancient, and if it’s applied correctly, I think you can get all the answers you need.”
– Dr. Nisha Khanna

Nisha Khanna is a true Renaissance woman. If you were there, you may remember her as the DJ at the book launch party for my best-seller That Sucked. Now What? She is also a practitioner of both Ayurveda and Functional Medicine. Nisha takes us through the ins and outs of both practices, exploring the intersection of Ayurveda and modern medicine, providing insights into addressing health issues, including thyroid imbalances, using holistic approaches. Here’s more of a breakdown…

In this episode, I talk about…

  • The three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and how they influence our physical and emotional well-being. 
  • The importance of understanding the physical makeup of the body and how it can guide personalized healing practices.
  • Ways to bridge Eastern and Western medicine to create a holistic approach to addressing imbalances.


Dr. Nisha Khanna is a board-certified MD who has been practicing medicine since 2005. 

She pursued her Ayurvedic education under Dr.Vasant Lad, where she additionally studied the healing art of Marma therapy. Next, she co-led the Wholefoods Medical and Wellness Center, while integrating the additional disciplines of Functional Medicine, Mind-Body Therapies, and Energy Healing into her medical toolkit. 

Today, Nisha’s unique multidisciplinary approach bridges Eastern and Western Medicine, creating powerful, customized health solutions that produce transformative results for her private practice patients. Areas of focus are gut disturbance, hormone balance, and vitality. She is excited about health education and sharing her integration of healing modalities on public platforms.
