I've been attending the series of classes at Khabir's Ojai location and I'm learning more every week. Khabir is a very interesting and informative teacher and I'm very grateful to be able to attend the classes. I've had my initial and follow up appointment and I'm taking the herbs and following the cleanse, and learning how to eat the right foods according to my dosha! Khabir takes the time to listen and give individual insight from the Ayurvedic perspective. So I'm learning how to achieve and maintain optimal health for myself through the Ayurvedic method and ancient wisdom. Much thanks to Khabir for his generosity of spirit and sharing his knowledge with all who seek it! Gina Eber, Ojai CA, April 2019

"Khabir is a Master of the herbs! I am a long time student of Kabhir and I left a similar testimonial 2 years ago in a video. Now I am writing to voice my opinion online. Even though I was already an Ayurvedic counselor, I have taken three courses in India with Khabir in addition to my studies, to learn from Khabir what I could not have learned from any other course or book studies. Taking the courses in India is also a lifetime opportunity to travel to India and be in a safe environment and in the comfort of a group setting with like-minded people, all of which want to learn about Ayurveda. A doctor in Ayurveda studies for 8 years and Ayurveda cannot be learned in a 2 weeks course. Khabir does not make this promise. It takes intense studies by the individual outside the classroom and YES that is why we are reading the books before, during and AFTER. One needs to learn the fundamentals. However, the hands-on practice, his vast knowledge on the subject of Ayurveda and his "life long" experience with the herbs and remedies is what he has to offer to his students and clients alike. This cannot be found in the books. He shares everything he knows from his practice with us. This is priceless! Khabir is very well respected in the Ayurveda community in India as well and the doctors there treat him like one of them. Khabir is a true Master of the Herbs and he cares. It is his passion, his life, and his profession. Ayurveda is his Dharma." Ilse Oliver, Ventura, April 2019

"So far Khabir and his herbs have lifted me from a life of constant physical suffering to one of great joy and physical comfort. My body and mind have come a long way since first meeting Khabir, and for this, I am eternally grateful. The power of Ayurveda and it's ability to help so many so quickly has inspired me to become a practitioner myself. I ventured to India to join up with Khabir and other students and learn about the philosophy of Ayurveda as well as an array of diagnostic methods and basic principles to help me begin my journey towards healing others. Through Khabir's great guidance and deep wisdom, I gained a much deeper insight into the workings of Ayurveda, and am confident in my progression and knowledge. There is much more to learn, but so far his first couple of courses have enlightened me to a world of health and well-being that I am excited to share with the world. If you're looking to be healed or to learn to heal others, look no further than Khabir Southwick :) Sean Moran, Ventura, CA, April 2019

"Khabir Southwick is a fountain of knowledge and health in all things Ayurveda. Convinced by family members and western medical professionals that my post nasal drip was simply always going to be, I was desperate to really change my inner environment and get better. With Khabir's herbs and especially his dietary recommendations, I now know how to lessen and sometimes eliminate my post nasal drip." Marilyn Lauer, San Francisco, CA, April 2019

"Ayurvedic Classes In India: I have learned a great deal about Ayurveda in India form Khabir. I learned from several great Indian doctors one-on-one. I had time to get health treatments and they're very reasonable! Many of the treatments I still use to help keep a healthy balance. Classes started early at breakfast with questioning and reviews then regular topics with tea we continued until lunch break and time to shop. We meet at the ashram for dinner and more teaching that sometimes late into the evening. We also went several times to Herb shops to learn which herbs were the best for each constitution to restore balance. I brought back herbs, Indian jewelry, yoga bags, and clothes. The tests were hard for me with the doctors looking on, but I did very well and I'm grateful for the knowledge that I acquired. There is a nice graduation ceremony at the Ashram at the completion of each course. I help family and friends with my knowledge of anatomy physiology and diagnostic skills in Ayurveda. Khabir's assistant Jade was a big help. I made several friends, too. This is a lifelong study and I'm very grateful for this nice beginning. In my opinion, this is the best, fastest, and least expensive way of becoming an Ayurvedic Practitioner while having the experience of Indian Culture. I highly recommend it! Sangjay D.

"I met Khabir when he taught a Cooking with Spices class at the local Whole Foods Market. His knowledge of Ayurveda was extensive and he spoke with confidence about things I wanted to know more about. He spent several hours with me during an intake appointment and I felt very seen and understood. Years later I still count on his expertise and order products from him from across the state because I believe in the quality and the care with which they are procured."

Khabir has helped me with several health problems and helped me get back my nutrition after antibiotics trashed my stomach. My favorite thing to tell people about though is his respiratory mixes. I was on several allergy medications for years, and now have been able to get off all of them. I just have a delicious cup or two of tea mixed with honey as soon as the sneezing/coughing/choking comes, and I get back to my life. During a cold and after, this mix will cut the postnasal drip off - no more coughing for weeks after the virus has passed! Seasonal allergies are the worst, but I just stay with the tea throughout the day and I am completely functional again. Thank you Khabir! Sara Median, April 2019

"Namaste, Since mid of 2015, I am taking consistently Khabir's herbs and diet. He is untiredly, openness, hard-working , knowledgeable, and much more has kept my failing pancreas from getting pancreatectomy, before it becomes cancerous. I am blessed to find him. I and my husband blesses him day and night. He goes above and beyond for each and every tiny detail issues to correct it. He gives ample amount of time by listening, talking, explaining, which gives a huge psychologically relief. He always wants to hear from us after one wk of starting of herbs to check if it is effective or not. and changes it accordingly. He does his part professionally and as a patient, I (we) have to be consistently taking herbs to feel better from worse. I highly recommend Khabir. I and my husband also go to India for further treatment like Panchkarma. So call him without any hesitation. He works for our good health." Malti Prajapati, Santa Barbara, April 2019

Khabir is an excellent teacher who has helped me to gain a high level of knowledge regarding Ayurveda. I've taken every Sunday class, and workshop he's provided since we met in Summer 2017, and last year I attended all three of his courses in India. In all the time I've spent with him, I've found his knowledge to be practical, and highly valuable. He's chosen to focus his teachings on that which is relevant to clinical practice of Ayurvedic herbalism. Under his guidance, I've learned a great deal about Ayurvedic fundamentals and theory, which I've been able to apply to my understanding of the human body and of the world. This has been an extremely expansive dimension of growth in my understanding over the last two years. From his diagnostic courses, I've learned to read the pulse, tongue and body to ascertain the state of toxins, and the state of the doshas. This has been highly valuable to my own self-care, and to my ability to care for those around me. From his teachings and guidance on herbalism, I've learned thoroughly about many herbs and traditional formulas of Ayurveda. This is highly impressive, as there is no way I could have learned this much without a teacher.
Regarding Khabir's courses in India, there is an element to his style of teaching which is very intensive, as in we really did need to do the 2 hours of recommended study each evening before we came to class in the morning. I can understand how it would have been less valuable if one was not prepared to deeply delve into studying Ayurveda, as we covered a vastly large amount of material in a short time, which took strong focus and dedication. Personally, I had a transformational learning experience during these courses, and found them to be invaluable in their benefit to my understanding of Ayurveda, the "Science of Life." I plan to continue indefinitely as a student of Khabir, as I know it will ultimately bring me to a place where I'm able to really help people improve their health.
Thank you Khabir, for all the effort and energy you put into sharing the wisdom teachings of Ayurveda; for myself and your other devoted students, it is a true gift to have you as our teacher. Jade Crawford, Ojai, CA April 2019

"I learned so much, and got so inspired working with Khabir to figure out my ideal eating style!! If you want to solve most of your problems, start with your diet + herbs!!! I was really at my wits end trying all types of online-inspired trendy diets and one-size-fits-all eating info from non-ancient information. I tried raw, I tried high carb low fat, I tried keto... none of it felt right... REALLY, I needed to move on with my life and KNOW for myself exactly what my body needed, so that I could take care of it and thrive. I always loved Indian knowledge and yoga, so I started looking online and found Khabir (I had a constant runny nose + sneezing). I loved his videos and was ready to take it seriously. It was such a worthwhile investment for my health, one of the best I have ever made. I feel like I have the info that every human should get when they are young, to learn how to care for their specific body for the rest of their lives. The main thing I love about Khabir's style is that he makes is SO EASY AND SIMPLE!! I have read about Ayurveda and taken workshops, and everyone made it seem so overwhelming and complicated that I just gave up. He keeps is simple and direct, which I love. If I could get everyone I know to see him, I 100000% would. I can say my life is truly better, my body healthier, and my mind clearer, since I made the choice to Skype with him. I am eternally grateful, THANK YOU KHABIR!!!!!! I also love all his videos and webinars because I learn so much more!" Kelsey Vireshwara, Minneapolis, MN April 2019

"I know Khabir for the last several years, five or six years.
I went to him in California, and I found him a very good practitioner of Ayurveda with a profound knowledge of Ayurveda and a deep interest in Ayurveda. There are many Ayurveda practitioners who just want to make money. He is one of those practitioners who want to learn more and more and give more and more to patients. I have seen this practically in my life.
He is an eager learner and he is also a very good teacher. Not only is he a good learner but [he is a] good teacher. I have seen him teaching in Rishikesh and all the students have very good words for him. I have seen the teachings myself. Whatever topics he is teaching, I think they should be taught in all the Ayurveda institutes. They should be covered by all the Ayurveda institutes, not only in America but also in India. He is teaching in a very precise way and a very elaborate way at the same time. That is very much practical knowledge that he is giving to his students. I wish him very good luck for his future courses."
