Dr. Kailas is a woman of East-Indian decent who expressed her desire to become a pediatrician at age five. Supported into her dreams from that young age forward, she has devoted her life to the scientific exploration of the world around her. Dr. Kailas spent her early years in Gallup, New Mexico, soaking up the traditions of the Diné Nation alongside the Vedic wisdom of her transplanted ancestral heritage, with a penchant for headstands at age seven. As she learned to read, Dr. Kailas devoured every side of the cereal box at the breakfast table, including the nutritional facts and ingredient lists. Her observation of food marketing, packages, and labels from childhood is one of the many ways Dr. Kailas began her journey as a young scientist, questioning these observations through taste tests with family and friends.
As small food and cosmetic companies folded into large corporate conglomerates, Dr. Kailas observed the psychic confusion imparted onto a society seduced by the colors and shapes of low-fat, sugar-free advertising, all the while yearning for true health and wholeness in the rapidly evolving world around her. The deep search for clarity led her into the heart of the rich cultural traditions of New Orleans, where she experienced, through food, music, movement, and friendship, the vivid intertwining of body, mind, and spirit.
Curiosity persists, and through grace bestowed by the extraordinary tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Kailas expresses nourishment of spirit through vitality in health, radiant beauty, and harmonious vibrancy. In the months and years following the storm, Dr. Kailas awakened to the healing gifts that reside within her ancestral lineage. She has since devoted her life to the (re-)integration of humanity and spirituality in medicine, singing each new day into being with the songs of the birds that surround her.
Dr. Kailas is available for consultation in person at her Santa Fe office or online anywhere around the world. Jai Sri Mata.
