About Zubin-ji Billimoria

I am a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner (Ay.P) and the only person in the field to have independently run demanding clinics of the eminent pulse-reading Guru, Dr. Shri Vasant Lad, in Pune, India. My unique life experiences give me an unusual aptitude for understanding clients of all ages and ethnicities, rebalancing mind & body in chronic digestive-metabolic, musculo – skeletal, auto-immune, sexual dysfunction, emotional, and psycho-somatic disorders.

Drawing on a lifetime of immersion in the 5500 years old anti-aging, restorative, functional, genuinely comprehensive Science of Ayurveda from the Indian subcontinent, I bring a distinctive approach to nutrition, health, & recovery to the West.

Receiving my Ayurvedic Practitioner (Ay.P) qualification from the American University of Complementary Medicine (CA), I then continued studies through an intensive clinical internship with exceptional Vaidyas, some with ayurvedic lineages, at the D.Y.Patil College of Ayurved, Pune, India under the auspices of the International Ayurved Academy (IAA) founded by the distinguished Professor Emeritus Dr. Subhash Ranade. 


My fluency in multiple Indian languages, coupled with the knowledge of closely interwoven Indian mythology, lent itself to in-depth study of the major classical treatises, understanding essential nuances of cryptic Sanskrit writings of the Sages through commentaries of eminent regional scholars of India. 

Then, in 2015, I aced the prestigious Gurukul Program under the tutelage of the eminent pulse – reading master Dr. Vasant Lad of the Ayurveda Institute. I was humbled by his encouragement, when I became the first student ever to be given independent charge of patients at his clinics in Pune.

 I am simultaneously trained and experienced in Yoga, Marma, Pránáyám, Panchakarma, and in Ayurvedic Gynecology.

My Journey

Zubin-ji, as my friends and clients have come to lovingly call me... I grew up on the outskirts of Bombay, in a day and age much different from today’s modern India. My experiences with rural living close to nature, deeply imbibed a sense of respect for nature’s healing powers. I came to understand how life can have its cures wrapped within its ailments. A single doctor for nearly 3000 families meant a visit was called for only in cases of serious illness or infection. Bruised knees were often healed with oil & turmeric, fevers were often brought down with salt water poultice, the runs were often stopped with roasted jack fruit seed, certain foods were strictly forbidden at certain times of day, meals were at regular times often with no left-overs, Mom often mentioned why she wouldn't use certain foods or spices in a season (& we wondered why she needed to make that declaration...), you woke up at six and went to bed at ten.

Immersion into Yoga, mantras & meditation was a regular way of life in school.

Gardening was a necessity born out of poverty & sense of community, local markets were the only kind of markets I knew, you stood in line at the only butcher's to buy meat once a month...  

Khichadi / khitchari was the poor man's food; we enjoyed it often with the yogurt sauce, kadhi, home-made papad(um) and white radishes - and we felt blessed... 

Moringa was just the beautiful tree that grew beside my window; that we climbed often to harvest the beans or long tender branches to cook the leaves, after the lashing monsoons...

Life was simple... 

Like most Indians of my generation, I continued on the time-tested path of Engineering, then Finance, endeavoring to lucrative jobs in Business, Management, & Consulting for 20 years.



The United States

Moving to the United States in 1998, I became acutely aware of the limitations of western medicine & healthcare. Seeing much pain through personal life (stories for another time...), I experienced first-hand the transformative power of Ayurveda. Around the same time, I came to the deep cognizance of the pain and suffering in modern societies in spite of billions in research and technology.


Driven by a desire to bridge the gap between the eastern and western paradigms of wellness, I moved from my life in Business Consulting & Information Technology to Ayurveda.

My perspective on todays' health challenges

I believe that most modern day challenges have their solutions in classics written millennia ago in the Indian subcontinent. All that is required is the ability to view health and disease through a different paradigm, the humility of respecting what has steadfastly stood the test of time, respect for the universality of life, and the cognitive application of universal elemental theories developed millennia ago to life in current times.

It is important to understand the psycho-somatic nature of disease, and endeavor not just towards a life devoid of illness, but one filled with effervescent joy and tranquil contentment at heart!

My Experience

I have worked with people with a myriad range of diseases from chronic migraines, skin diseases like eczema & psoriasis, chronic digestive diseases including IBS/ UC/ Crohn’s, heart problems like arrhythmias, tachycardia, congestive heart disease, urinary issues like bladder & renal insufficiency, diabetes, hypertension. musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia & CFS, and more. I sometimes work with a combination of Ayurved and Homeopathy, since each alternative modality has marked advantages in certain conditions and diseases.


In respect...

Your blessings guide me always!
