Aarti Patel is a naturopathic doctor and author who enjoys writing about health, as well as fiction that explores individuality and society's impact on health. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family and finds rainy days to be perfect for writing and watching movie marathons. She believes that health is not about perfect diets, hours spent at the gym, a magic cure from supplements or pharmaceuticals, or any one particular belief or ideology. Rather, it's life itself, how we treat it and support it, and the courageous actions of the individual in the face of real life challenges.

I'll also put on headphones at times and let the music become a soundtrack to whatever I'm writing. Taking notes helps too, or approaching the work as if I'm the only reader...which at that point, I am.(less)

Adult acne is on the rise. People in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s struggle with this skin condition and are often confused about why it's happening to them.

But I eat right and exercise, manage my stress levels, and sleep eight hours. I take decent care of my skin too.

Patients have told me this, and they're right. From my investigative seat, I can tell they're doing their best to push a healthy... Read more of this blog post »

“If you want to hear more like this, just subscribe to my face.”

“I'll always remember these great times, at least for now.”

“An unreconciled past is the present.”

“When you look around and there are no answers, where do you go from there?”
Aarti Patel

“Always in life an idea starts small, it is only a sapling idea, but the vines will come and they will try to choke your idea so it cannot grow and it will die and you will never know you had a big idea, an idea so big it could have grown thirty meters through the dark canopy of leaves and touched the face of the sky.' He looked at me and continued. 'The vines are people who are afraid of originality, of new thinking. Most people you encounter will be vines; when you are a young plant they are very dangerous.' His piercing blue eyes looked into mine.' Always listen to yourself, Peekay. It is better to be wrong than simply to follow convention. If you are wrong, no matter, you have learned something and you grow stronger. If you are right, you have taken another step toward a fulfilling life.”
Bryce Courtenay, The Power of One

“If you focus on the risks, they'll multiply in your mind and eventually paralyze you. You want to focus on the task, instead, on doing what needs to be done.”
Barry Eisler
