Khabir Southwick, DBA Natural Healing Consultants - Ventura County Business license #8111
Born a natural childbirth in Tucson Arizona, 1962, Khabir was raised as a lacto-vegetarian by health conscious parents who began educating him about nutrition and hatha yoga at an early age. As a teenager, Khabir was already providing medicinal teas and massage therapy. He went on to study western herbal medicine (1978) and the traditional nutritional sciences (1981). He perused advanced studies in northern India (1983) to study clinical Ayurveda health-care (kayachikitsa) and detoxification (panchakarma). He received additional training and experience working with Ayurvedic doctors in India (1984-1998). In Khabir's extensive travels he has visited over 60 countries worldwide.
Since 1998, Khabir dedicated his life full-time to professionally helping people achieve optimum health based on Ayurvedic principles. Currently, he studies under Dr. Vikram Chauhan M.D.(Ayurveda) - owner of the world wide herbal manufacture Planet Ayuveda; and Dr. Madan Gulati M.D.(Ayurveda) - an internationally recognized Ayurvedic doctor with numerous awards and more then 40 years of clinical experience.

"The recent rain and low clouds in Ventura put a great deal of mold in the air, a concentration of which I walked through a couple weeks ago and began having the worst allergy attack of my life. This went on for 4 days until I finally saw the doctor, who one day gave me an inhaler (which didn't help), and the next day I was put on prednisone which also did little to help until the 5th day. Even on 3 different allergy medications and the steroid, I was still having an allergic reaction every few hours when the antihistamines would start to wear off. The doctor told me I would have to start wearing a mask outside - and to stop going outside whenever possible! I knew I was reacting to something still in my body, I could feel the heaviness in my chest still, and was very worried because it was getting worse now that the second round of steroids was over, and I was about to leave town. I had seen Khabir for other health problems previously, but my allergies had never been bad enough to really scare me before so I hadn't talked to him about them. At our visit Khabir made me a strong tea and I was able to get some immediate relief, however even he could see my symptoms returned within an hour. It was decided that I would start a lung tonic and sip it throughout the day, along with an organic honey from the acacia trees I had recently purchased. Within a day I felt considerably better, and week later I came off the other allergy medications. In the last 2 days I've only had to take one benedryl, which is quite unusual for me! This lung tonic has made a huge difference in my life and although I went through the bottle quickly, it is comparable in cost to what I was spending on allergy medication (which was not helping), and I am committed to staying on it because it has brought such relief! Thank you Khabir for taking the time to customize my mixes and pay attention my individual needs, I am so hopeful now that this allergy season will not be my downfall this year!" Sara Medina, Ventura CA
"I was happy with my appointment and first session and book a follow up trusting that the herbs and dietary changes would be helpful to the symptoms my body is having. I wasn't sure I'd have the will to alter my diet in the way that you suggested. But as I go through your suggested treatment, I am more confident that the counsel you have given me and the approach you have suggested, my energy will return as my symptoms subside. I felt the reduction of my flu symptoms after a day, and I continue to improve each day. I will begin phase two and start eating right for my type, and regain lost energy from eating the wrong foods, and hopeful have a complete reversal from my symptoms. Thanks, Khabir" Brian Berman, Ojai, CA
"Khabir is the first real doctor I’ve met in my lifetime. He asks questions and listens. He is my health and wellness partner in working on how best to address MY health challenges. His approach is positive and supportive. In the short time (6 weeks) I’ve been using his health-care services (tailored to meet my body’s needs), I’ve increased my sleeping time, gotten more active and my brain is clear and focused. In addition, I enjoy the foods I now eat and my body thanks me, a lot." Mari McCarthy, Pittsburgh, PA
"Khabir really knows his stuff. Not only has he helped me understand and alleviate an autoimmune condition I've battled with for 30 years, he's been very generous with his time and wisdom, taking the time to explain everything. His depth of knowledge on Ayurveda and herbs is vast, and his keen sense of what's required to heal people is a true gift. He's a caring and effective practitioner as well as a knowledgeable teacher." Magda Rod, Los Angeles CA
"Dear Khabir, thank you for your service. After just couple days of taking the calming tea and adrenal tea, my daily rhythm improved and I felt much better. Slept like a baby and after taking recommended spices before food honestly speaking I started to eat normally with a normal appetite feeling. I wake up and I feel I am hungry. Before was completely opposite. I am grateful to meet you and to cooperate with you. Hope to meet with you again." Sincerely Tanja Dimitrijevic, Dubai, UAE 2016
