Dr. Prasad practices and presents Ayurveda nationally and internationally over the past 25 years. He was in Australia for just over 20 years. His health consultations are thorough and training style is an absorbing blend of pure devotion with a strong sense of logic. Currently he is full time clinical and education director and at Sydney Ayurveda Centre. He has organised and has been part of over 2 dozen international ayurveda and yoga conferences in India and Australia. He has identified around 2000 classical Ayurveda herbs in Australia, including many species which are endangered in India. Also he is working on a number of projects internationally, including an Ayurveda dictionary, an interactive online health training software, an International "Ayurveda story telling" exhibition material and an Ayurveda eco-health farm in Australia. He is part of a strong Australian Ayurveda community with passionate professionals and participants. When he is back in his Keralan village with his 9 year old daughter, he still performs his traditional duties - helping his mother making tulsi and vil wa leaf garlands for the temple deities.
