At BrilliantRead Media, we always strive to bring meaningful and powerful stories from India and around the world to empower and motivate our growing community. As part of this endeavour, we invited Dr Dimple Jangda for an exclusive interview with us. She is an Ayurveda & Gut Health Coach, Keynote Speaker, TV and Podcast Host, Change Maker and Influencer. Dr Dimple is the Founder of Prana Healthcare Centre. Let’s learn more about her incredible journey, her background, and her valuable advice for our growing community.

Excerpts from our exclusive interview with Dr Dimple:

We are aware of your contributions to the ecosystem; talk us through your background and your journey, please;

I started my career as a copywriter in advertising, went on to become a TV reporter, TV producer at CNBC-TV18 and then worked as an Investment Banker in India and New york.

At the peak of my career graph, I decided to take a sabbatical, to step back and re-evaluate my career and life choices.”

I spent a year travelling to over 10 countries, and eventually, back in India, I travelled to the countryside and rediscovered my secret to happiness! Reconnecting with my roots, with nature, allowed me the time to understand the deeper aspects of wellness – at a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.

I discovered Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy and wanted to create a platform where doctors, therapists, patients, and students could connect and exchange these energies, and thus was born Prana Healthcare Centre. 

The Centre has treated over 3000+ patients from 54 countries and has introduced Ayurveda to over 85,000 students from 59 countries, through workshops and an Ayurveda masterclass.

I spent the last 5 years researching and teaching preventive healthcare through Ayurveda and received an honorary doctorate for the same. The clinic has been recognised for its contribution towards gut health and Ayurveda with Times Brand Icon, India’s most trusted healthcare award, shethepeople digital tv award, and recognition from National American University.

We have created 2 TV shows – Ayurveda Diaries and Meri Jung, which was broadcasted in Hindi, English and Telugu, a 12-episode podcast series on Amazon, and 50+ articles in various publications.

How did you discover your passion in ‘Coaching’?

During the pandemic in 2020, our students and patients couldn’t access the clinic. We noticed a heightened state of fear and stress levels amongst everyone and decided to start teaching online, to empower them.

We wanted to put the power back in the hands of the people and teach them ayurvedic remedies for daily life, to prevent sickness and boost their immunity.”

To date, we have conducted 300+ workshops online and offline, with over 85000 participants from corporates, schools, colleges, and over 5000 students who have further completed the Ayurveda Masterclass to deepen their knowledge of preventive wellness.

These students are well empowered to take care of themselves, their families and loved ones. Our vision is to make Preventive Healthcare through Ayurveda a global phenomenon and a household practice.

How do you manage to keep going despite the challenges? What drives you?

Look at the world around you… what do you see… mass consumerism on one end, diseases and healthcare on the other, and natural beauty in between which we are often disconnected from. There is a constant desire to acquire, buy more and consume more.

How often do we stop and think, are we creating “value” for the planet or our future generations.

It is a conscious choice we make at Prana, that we want to preserve a piece of Indian heritage, preventive medical sciences like Ayurveda, so the future generation can inherit this from us.”

We faced many challenges during the lockdown, and each challenge turned into an opportunity as we remained focused on our goals. It’s the hope of a better future and preserving something real for all the children that keeps us going.

Who do you believe has been the biggest source of motivation in your daily life?

My grandfather and my uncle have been the biggest influence in my life. My grandfather is a blessed man. He broke several social norms and stereotypes to allow me the life opportunities I enjoy today. He actively manages a 100-acre animal rescue farm, to which he has dedicated all his time and money. My Uncle was a mentor to me and a Godfather.

He gave me a platform for me to receive an education, and pursue a career of my choice. He has guided me through my choices. My Uncle founded 85+ schools and colleges with the sole intention to give back to society, strengthen the social fabric and make education available to students from all financial and national backgrounds.

Similarly, my mom has dedicated her time to social service for the leprosy colonies.

When I watch them work tirelessly and relentlessly towards their goals, it further strengthens my confidence in my work. Work without waiting in anticipation for reward or results. and be honest to yourself and to your work.”

What are some of the strategies that you believe have helped you grow as a person?

Be consistent with your vision statement. Don’t let the outside noise distract you from your goal and purpose in life. Ensure whatever you choose to embark on is a sustainable business idea, that which is ethical, creates value for society, while minimizing any harm to the environment, animals, birds and humanity.

Find your ikigai, your purpose and go the extra mile to achieve it.”

Your deeper sense of purpose will sustain you emotionally, mentally, physically, financially and socially.

When these basic building blocks are aligned, it is very easy to grow in the direction you want with clarity and a sense of happiness. And remember, when you care for the society, you are actually caring for yourself by building a healthier world around you.

Please share with us, how do you motivate your clients?

Quite often, we meet clients with chronic health issues, who have spent several years struggling to find answers to crippling or simple health issues. We equip them with the healthcare solutions that can be implemented with a holistic approach.

Health is a compassionate business. We meet all kinds of patients. Quite often, when we connect with them and find the trigger points at an emotional level, we are able to solve half the problem. Once a client is motivated towards becoming healthier, and is willing to walk the extra mile, our team can go all out to help them with nutrition, lifestyle changes, medications, detoxification treatments and educational content.

Dr Dimple Jangda

What are the business mantras you have embraced as you sought to establish your success story?

Be consistent with your principles and values, and with your business goals. Be conscious and aware of the consequences of every business decision you make.

Have a unidimensional focus towards your goal. and you will eventually receive rewards and attract bigger opportunities in your business and life.

You are always positive and motivated, what keeps you going?

With every patient we speak to, every health problem we resolve, every student we educate, the gratitude we receive, the kindness and love and the satisfaction we get far exceeds anything else in the world for us. Coming to work is like recharging my batteries, with something sustainable, fulfilling and healthy.

Even after a long day, we leave work feeling gratified and fulfilled at a deeper level. There are tough days, when we experience burnout, or face acute challenges, we simply buckle up our shoes,, and focus all our energies towards resolving the issues using technology, research and better administrative skills. Just so we can continue doing what we love – building a healthy society!

In your opinion, what are the keys to success?

Determination, a strong sense of purpose towards yourself, your chosen career and the greater good of society, and a non-negotiable set of principles and values that act as an anchor in your life.

Ensure these values are aligned when working towards your goal, with an unwavering focus. Success is inevitable and money becomes a byproduct and a measure of that. Money can be good in the hands of the good, corrupt in the hands of the corrupt.

Wanting to make wealth is not wrong, but ensure it has a deeper purpose to it… Ask yourself, are you donating some extra money to a cause close to your heart, are you supporting someone less privileged, does your work also empower those who look up to you? Ask these questions… and trust me, when the foundation is strong, you build taller and bigger!

What advice would you give students and young professionals who want to have a successful career?

When I was starting out, I did not really have an ikigai or a purpose in place. I was ambitious, young, and had a burning desire to achieve something substantial. I navigated my career, from one industry to another, as I saturated quickly in different roles.

But when I found a cause that was close to my heart, I shut down all distractions and noises from the outside world and stayed focussed on this newfound goal with undivided attention. There were no Sundays or off days. I worked 365 days a year, till I could shape the clinic in a manner the world perceives it now.

Don’t feel guilty about working hard or working all the time, but of course, have a fair sense of work-life balance with adequate time dedicated towards fitness and nutrition.

Don’t be afraid to miss out on some fun holidays or parties, because when you become successful, you automatically attract better events in your life that are worth your time and money.

Last but not least, what about your journey makes it satisfying/exciting?

The measurable impact and the immeasurable gratitude and love we receive back from our patients and students make it all worth it!

Our content on social media consistently delivers easy and important health tips to improve the quality of the reader’s lives. When we receive feedback on how participants from this community have changed their eating patterns or lifestyle, it motivates us to work harder. Our curriculum at the academy is focused towards preventive healthcare.

When we prevent diseases, we all win! Prana healthcare centre gives patients the right environment to achieve their health goals. watching them transform and grow richer in their health and happiness, makes you happier!
