Bio for Rakesh Sethi, BS, CAHP  
Wellness Author, Speaker & Practitioner 

Rakesh Sethi, BS, CAHP is a renowned wellness author, speaker, and practitioner dedicated to inspiring people to make life-long changes to live well. Through his keynote presentations, books, and workshops, Rakesh introduces people to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda combined with his unique, scientific, and practical approach. Rakesh’s goal is for every person to be healthy and happy – at work and at home – to achieve true wellness.

Rakesh attended the Natural Medicine/Ayurveda schools AYU and Kerala Ayurveda Academy and became a Certified Ayurveda Practitioner in the 2006. An ancient natural medical practice at least 5,000 years old, Ayurveda is a health-management approach that encourages wellness, rather than a disease-management approach that treats illness. (In Sanskrit, Ayur means life and Veda means science.) During his training, Rakesh had the opportunity to learn from distinguished Ayurvedic doctors who practice Ayurveda medical science and teach in Ayurvedic Universities in India.

Before studying the Ayurveda medical science, Rakesh studied pre-med, engineering, and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. After graduating, he worked as a computer systems technology consultant and sales executive at Hewlett-Packard for 12 years.

During his years in the corporate world, Rakesh struggled to achieve personal fulfillment. His scientific curiosity and strong interest in life sciences led him to the Ayurvedic medical system. Today, Rakesh applies a scientific approach to uncover wisdom from the age-old Ayurvedic medical sciences and apply it to our modern times.

Rakesh is passionate about empowering everyone to participate in their wellness every day by understanding the mind-body connection and leading a balanced, healthy life. To this end, Rakesh offers health and wellness coaching, workshops, and webinars for individuals, couples, and small groups. He regularly speaks to corporations and business associations to inspire wellness at work. And he consults with businesses to create wellness programs that result in healthy employees and highly productive teams.
