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.
Wow! Thank you Khabir for spending time with my family recently and giving us such loving and caring information on healing our bodies and souls. We love you and wish you much happiness as you care for others as you do for us! The Becerra Family. Lily Maravilla, Los Angeles
Just wanted you to know that the teas and other suggestions you made to me helped a lot. - Jeff Hoffman, Oak View California
Thank you for the great workshop! I have been sharing with all my new friends here in SB that you are a great teacher! You really helped me to just "get it"! Bianca Acevedo, Santa Barbara
Thank you Khabir for showing us the way to walk into an intimidating process and make good of it in a wonderful group way. My experience with the Heavy Metal Detox [Workshop] was a welcomed journey and I was able to walk out of "head fog" and into much CLEARER thinking. Also I did not trigger any health challenges and that was my greatest fear. It was wonderful to meet the other participants and learn so many interesting things and make new friends. I enjoyed this experience and your expertise a great deal. Venessa Kay, Live Blood Consultant, Santa Barbara (805) 636-0145
Thank you so much for the amazing class. I really enjoyed it! -Dalia Khan, Santa Barbara, CA.
Khabir's astute dosha diagnosis talents have helped me to enjoy the acts of preparing and enjoying my food again! I'm a vata-pitta, and though I haven't yet lost much weight this past month, I'm feeling more nourished by what I eat and more energetic, without the irritability I was experiencing before changing to an Ayurvedic approach. My body is changing for the better. I feel more like facing the day when I wake, and ready for a good sleep at night after full productive days!" --Julie Christensen stonecupid.com
