Born in Tucson Arizona in 1962, Khabir was raised as a lacto-vegetarian by health conscious, "naturalist" parents. In his youth, Khabir was already helping others to improve their diet and providing medicinal teas for common health conditions. It was at this time, he studied the traditional nutritional sciences and western herbal medicine.
In 1982, he began traveling to India to formally study Ayurveda; specifically to study herbal formulations and applications. After receiving a grant to research primitive cultures while studying Anthropology at Prescott College Arizona, Khabir traveled worldwide to study isolated tribes unaffected by the modern world. These trips resulted in detailed research on the lifestyle habits, natural medicines and diets of remote tribes in Borneo (Sabah), Northern Thailand, Nepal, India and later Africa. In Africa, Khabir traveled overland by Land Rover almost two years from Egypt, down the Nile river through Sudan, to North Eastern Zaire (the Democratic Republic of the Congo) where he studied along with other tribes the indigenous pygmies. After spending time in Kenya, he subsequently traveled across Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Botswana where he studied the Kalahari bushmen living in the Kalahari desert.
Khabir also lived in Japan for 8 years studying the Japanese language, shiatsu, reiki, massage and reflexology; consequently he speaks fluent Japanese. In Khabir's overseas travels, he has visited over 60 countries worldwide.
As a healthcare practitioner, Khabir is extremely knowledgeable of both traditional and current natural therapies. He has a deep insight into diets and herbal formulas that support the recovery from chronic health conditions and digestive issues. Since 1998, Khabir has dedicated his life’s work to understanding and treating the root causes of illness based on Ayurvedic health principles and practices. Residing in Ojai California, Khabir enjoys hiking, horseback riding, gardening and spending time with his son.
Khabir is the founder and director of Eat With Your Head a non-profit dedicated to educating children in healthy eating and living habits. His volunteer work includes educating children about healthy foods.

I enjoyed learning so much about superfoods! Khabir knows his stuff and knows that each person has different needs on the path to health. Robin, Santa Barbara
Khabir, I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar [on superfoods, May 25th at WholeFoods Market, Santa Barbara], and learned so much. I appreciate your time and experience that you have brought to this meeting. Everyone was obviously as interested as I was, and Rae, thanks for organizing! I look forward to learning more from Khabir!! He really is a nice person, and cares about improving people's health. Ginny W. Santa Barbara
Thank you to my herbalist Khabir....who has come along side of me the past 7 months to help me get off my anti-depressant medication that I have been taking for 11 years. I've been drug free for 10 weeks. . . . Khabir addressed my diet, supplement intake, and mixed herb formulas and teas to ease the painful withdrawals. We incorporated a total organic, [wholefood] diet. My kids eat Ezekiel bread, drink raw milk, eat cashew butter instead of peanut butter, and YES they give me a little bit of a challenge about it....but when there is nothing else to eat they accept it. I'm learning patience. Khabir has been a pivotal person in my healing. Thank for teaching me how to take care of my health! Angela Stevens, Oak View
With today's hectic lifestyles, I’m very tense and often have trouble sleeping. I discovered herbal teas, when I meet Khabir. I have noticed that there is nothing like a soothing cup of herbal tea. Once I found out its healing remedies, I have taken them daily. I can’t believe that my health has improved as well as my sleep. Herbal teas have proven not only to be effective and efficient, but delicious! I continue to enjoy good health thanks to Khabir’s support. Now, I have no hesitation in recommending his services to people who have health conditions. Million thanks Khabir for the Natural path you have led me to. I’m very pleased. Zahra Alami – Rabat Morocco.
I got so much out of working with you on my weight loss . I don't always do it right, but when I do, I get results. I've lost 7 pounds that have really stayed off, and I have a much better relationship with food and food-based supplements and herbs. Thank you! Julie Christensen, Ojai.
