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.
