Walking in my grandpa’s foot steps: A note from Umangini Desai...
My Grandfather was the great physician in the 1940’s in a small city in India. I always loved to spend my summer vacation at Grandpa’s place. I saw poor villagers in his walk-in clinic from several different villages for their treatments and also experienced their financial strain for their medical treatment in spite of him giving the least expensive treatment plan. At the end, they would bring some kind of treat with love for him and our family but most importantly award him with great respect and blessings. It inspired me to become a helpful and sympathetic person. When I graduated from high school, I could not get in the Allopathic Medical College. I decided to pursue the medical field still and got admission in one of the best homeopathic college in India. After graduating, I still wanted to learn the practical aspect of homeopathic way of case taking and in-depth philosophy and joined Institute of Clinical Research in Baroda for 18 months. I continued learning the different aspects Complimentary and Alternative Medicine and now it has been over 11 years of treating clients with Classical Homeopathy.

Desai saw homeopathy as a tool to provide the best health care and vitality to humanity at the most affordable cost.
