Rajgopal Nidamboor, PhD, is a wellness physician-writer-editor, independent researcher, columnist, author and publisher.
His published work includes hundreds of newspaper, magazine, Web articles, essays, meditations, columns, and critiques on a host of subjects, eight books on natural health, two coffee table tomes and an encyclopaedic treatise on Indian philosophy.
He calls himself an irrepressible idealist.
What Raj — as he's affectionately known — likes best is spending quality time with his family, close friends, and reading, writing, listening to music, watching cricket and old movies and practising mindful meditation.

“Rajgopal Nidamboor [Raj] is one of those rare individuals who embodies all the qualities necessary to be an exceptional writer, journalist, editor and publisher. His commitment and dedication is unsurpassed. I have known him for more than a decade[-and-a-half] and during this time he has exceeded all of my expectations. In my years as practicing physician, author and editor, I have never met anyone more capable or more dedicated, especially in the field of mind-body/integrative medicine.”
RICHARD FIRSHEIN, DO, Founder-Director, Firshein Center for Comprehensive Medicine, New York, and author of Reversing Asthma, Your Asthma-Free Child, The Nutraceutical Revolution and, most recently, The Vitamin Prescription [For Life].
“The growing interest in naturopathic treatment and nutritional medicine is changing and transforming the public’s respect and use of natural programmes. It is in this context that Raj’s writing introduces [readers] to effective, cost-saving, risk-free nutritional approaches that may be used in addition to, or in place of, prescribed drug treatments.”
JONATHAN COLLIN, MD, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Townsend Letter, USA.
I feel privileged to be associated with Raj for more than a decade, a truly multifaceted personality. His knowledge about medicine, cricket, and current socio-political scenario is amazing. His writing and command over English language is second to none. The superb sense of humour and its apt use during conversation makes a dialogue with him a treat... It was serendipity that I came in contact with Raj due to my research work on ovarian transplant. He not only wrote an article in Science magazine, but followed up continually with my further research on vaginoplasty. I will always cherish those articles for their scientific content, simplifying it for the general reader and at the same time his superb language. As a true friend his efforts in disseminating this research all over the world were amazing.

“I consider you [Raj] the ‘Shakespeare of Nutritional Biochemistry.’ Your prose concerning the functioning of the [human] body is not only clear and easy to understand, but also like taking a journey into [its] complex, harmonious creation… Indeed, humans are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ and you paint an adventuresome picture of that.”
NANCY HULTSTRAND, my PhD course instructor, USA.
