Personal details:
from Bapuji Ayurvedic Medical College, Shimoga, Karnataka
MD (Ayurveda) from ALN Rao Ayurvedic Medical College, Koppa, Karnataka
Post Graduate Diploma on Pharma Sales Management from IGNOU, New Delhi.
Now staying in Moodbidri, Mangalore, Karnataka.

Previous work experience:

Worked as Associate Professor in Alva’s Ayurveda Medical College, Moodbidri, for four years.

Personal note:

During my childhood, I suffered a lot with health issues, I had four fractures at different times of school period, and a major abdominal surgery at the age of 9.

Thanks to incredible efforts of my brave mother, Smt. Padmakshamma, I would have died without her efforts. (still have 6 inch long suture mark on my tummy).  She is now, a retired teacher.

I wanted to become a doctor since childhood and found out in due course of time, that there is no better way of healing than Ayurveda, the Indian system of Medicine.

Thanks to my mom again, though I lost my father at the age of 12, she put me through graduation and post graduation courses of Ayurveda, through a period of 9 long years. During my post graduation studies, she lived alone at home, while I was at hostel.

After I post-graduated in 2008, I have been writing my experiences about Ayurveda in my blog – easyayurveda.com

My hobbies – cricket, chess, classical music, reading biographies.

I live with my mom, wife and 2 daughters.

  1. Suzanne Gano says:

    Dear Dr. Hebbar,
    I am looking for a doctor that practices in the most authentic manner to have a full 45-52 day pancha karma-rejuvenation program. I am a student of Ayurveda and would also like to learn as much as I can during the experience. There are so many Ayurvedic Drs to choose from I am having a difficult deciding. I have looked into Naveem Kumar Arya in Amritsar, also Jiva Ayurveda, and Dr. Franklin in kerala. Do you have any suggestions? I am not looking for a spa environment, I have a modest income and would like to find a good Dr. who charges a reasonable amount, with accommodations too. Thank you for your time.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Any good Ayurvedic center with Panchakarma set up should be good for you. I would suggest AVN Swasthya of Madurai, Tamil Nadu. I had worked there previously and know for sure that doctors there are genuine. But it might be little costly. – avnswasthya.com

  2. one would wish you could have more elaboration. The list of ‘services’ is impressive and really really very useful to laymen.
    You are doing your bit in promotion of the ancient science of wellness.
    I love or rather adore Aayurveda because it talks of Aarogy and not illness or diseases. It improves vitality thereby enabling the body to fight the illness. It is like making your line longer rather than shortening other’s line.

  3. kmadhani1942@gmail.com says:

  6. thank you. I will.

  7. sreedevi sridevi says:

    Dear Doctor ,
    I have pain in the heel for the last one year. there is a swelling in the right side of the foot also. Can you suggest any remedy?


    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Dear Madam,

      In the majority of cases, heel pain has a mechanical cause. It may also be caused by arthritis, infection, an autoimmune problem trauma, a neurological problem, or some other systemic condition (condition that affects the whole body). Please do consult a Ayurvedic Physician and rule out the cause.

      Some of the home remedies you can try are: ‘

      > Fill a tub with warm water. Add two tablespoons of salt in it.Soak your feet in it for about 20 minutes.

      > You can use sesame oil for massage as it has the ability to warm up the area and penetrates easily in to the skin.

  8. Dear sir I have my uric acid level at 7-8 and patanjli Dr suggested me arogyavardini vati is it safe and effective for me along with they prescribed me punarnavadimandoor and goshuradi guggal please guide me sir how effective this combination for me

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Dear sir, If the doctor has prescribed then he/she must have given it keeping in mind your age and severity of the disease. So you can go ahead with this combination. And it is known to have effect on uric acid levels.

  9. Dear Sir,
    Is leg pain after sex is normal in winter season.

  10. Is triphala churna good for acid reflux and parasitic and yeast infection. How long should it be taken and can it be taken with amlaki powder

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Dear sir, Yes you can take them in the following ways:
      • Take the powder of Amalaki (Emblica officinalis) in a dose of 3 to 6 g should be taken with100 to 250 ml water twice/day. Amalaki is one of the best pacifier for the Pitta as well as the Kapha Dosha and also a rich source of Vitamin C- to heal the bruised stomach and esophagous due to the high production of the Acid in stomach.
      • Instead of Tea or Coffee prepare a decoction from the equal parts of stem of Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia), fruit of Neem, leaf of snakeguard, and Triphala. A dose of 14 to 28 ml should be taken twice/day. Take it only after cooling down to the room temperature.

    Namaste sir, I am having migraine problem since at the age of 10.I tried to get rid of it but could not. Plz help me. I searched about Ayurveda and I found you having great experience in the field of Ayurveda. I am suffering from it. At least twice thrice in a week. Plz suggest me

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Dear sir, These are some remedies you can inculcate. But for effective cure would advise you to take expert advise from a ayurvedic physician. He/she might lay down a treatment plan to reduce the migraine problem.
      > Hold an ice-pack to your forehead or temples to reduce your pain.
      > You could try keeping a migraine diary. Writing down information about your headaches and what you were doing when they happened can help you find out what triggers your headaches. Then you can avoid those triggers.
      > Take the juice of Guduchi (giloy), in doses of 10 ml with honey.
      > Spread your workload evenly during the day to avoid highs and lows of stress at work or at home
      > Eat at regular times, and do not skip meals
      > Limit the amount of tea, coffee and painkillers you use.
      > Watch your posture. Try to keep your neck straight.

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Sir, In general IBS C is considered as Pitta dominant. This type of IBS clinically shows the presence of heartburn, thirst, feeling hot, irritable or angry, inflammation, sweating and fever, fluid, and foul smelling stools and eructation.
      The diet should include:
      • The use of Buttermilk (takra) is emphasized.
      • Indigestible foods such as bread; cheese; and cold, hard, and raw foods should be avoided. Herbs like ginger, fennel, and cumin that stimulate enzyme secretions will improve digestion, absorption, and clear ama from the digestive tract.
      • Prefered food items are Eat old rice, jawar, gourd, coriander leaves, lentil, green grams soup, black pepper, dried ginger, wood apple, Pomegranate, nutmeg, skimmed milk, buttermilk, hot water.
      • Avoid foods items such as maize, barley, pigeon pea, pea, cow pea, black gram, gram, Soya bean, potato, sweet potato, onion, coconut, groundnut, chili, oily food, chicken, mango, pineapple, apple, watermelon, cashew, pumpkin gourd, papaya, fig, jack fruit

      The following changes in lifestyle help to control IBS:
      • Identify and remove food intolerances — Because grains are a common culprit, an elimination diet should be tried.
      • Restore a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut -Use of buttermilk (takra) is emphasized.
      • Mind–body therapy — Complete rest, adequate sleep is advisable and day sleep, awakening at night, tension, suppression of urges should be avoided.
      The following herbs are used in this type of IBS for their respective benefits:
      • Amalaki
      • Coriander water cools pitta
      • Musta (Cyperus rotundus) improves intestinal absorption and stops diarrhea.
      • Aloe vera juice
      • Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)
      • Sweet, bitter, and astringent foods are best.

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

Because we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated.

      6. Keep night food light, devoid of any frozen foods, aerated drinks, fried foods and sweets . Make sure that dinner is hot when you take it.
      7. It is always good to prepare food in the same day and be served fresh and hot.
