Dr. Paul Dugliss is a pioneer in the American medical system being one of the first physicians to integrate the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda into modern healthcare.

As an Internal Medicine resident in the 1990s he was chosen to become Director of a brand new Complementary & Alternative Medicine Center in Westland, Michigan. This experience led him to the realization that teaching people how to access true health could not come from within the current medical paradigm. This in turn led him to begin teaching Ayurveda and the creation of the New World Ayurveda school.

Now Dr. Paul trains people from all backgrounds to cultivate consciousness and understand our unique constitutions in order to create true balance and real health. His students have gone on to become leaders in the field and are part of the movement to empower people to take care of their health with lifestyle based prevention founded on ancient medical systems.

Dr. Paul has written seven books on Ayurveda, has traveled the world as a guest speaker, and is regularly consulted as an expert on a variety of health and consciousness-related projects. He has devoted his life to bringing Ayurveda to the mainstream and continues to bring all of his knowledge to his students with an ever-evolving understanding of what living as a conscious, whole person, rooted in the heart means.
