Kamaljit Kaur Khalsa, Ayurvedic Sciences
Kamaljit Kaur serves as a consultant to Create Inner Peace in diet and nutrition for stress management. Kamaljit (Vini), founder and CEO of Vinies Veda and Soul of Ayruveda, was born into a family tradition steeped in ancient wisdom and healing technology. Her father and mother, Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., and Inderjit Kaur, Ph.D., introduced Kundalini Yoga to the West in 1969 and spearheaded the creation of the first Ayurvedic-based businesses in the United States—Yogi Tea, Golden Temple and Peace Cereal—products of which are now sold throughout Europe and many other countries.
Special thanks to Kanchan Kohli, MD, daughter of Kamaljit Kaur, who provided research support for sound health principals and daily health tips for stress management.
For generations, Vini and Kanchan’s family households have utilized plants and herbs from the garden in their kitchen for many aspects of daily life. From these daily traditions, Vini and her family learned that herbs and oils possess inherent healing and therapeutic benefits. It is this very lesson she applied to her life when she began to experience the pains of Fibromyalgia.
She began to take Ayurvedic remedies and apply oils to her head and body to alleviate the severe body aches associated with Fibromyalgia. What she noticed was that not only did the Ayurvedic medicines and oil applications take away the throbbing pains throughout her body, but her hair and skin also regained the healthy vibrancy, moisture and luster that were lost at the start of her Fibromyalgia. As she discovered these tremendous, unexpected benefits that Ayurveda brought about in the quality and vitality of her hair and skin, she began exploring the vast fountain of health and beauty secrets contained within the ancient, potent compounds of Ayurveda. Vini worked closely with Masters of Ayurveda, including Dr. Vasant Lad, founder of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and many knowledgeable Ayurvedic physicians in India.
