From a very early age, Dr. Sodhi knew that he wanted to be a physician and would go to the village doctor feigning illness in order to procure remedies that he could take home and put into his "doctor’s kit". This passion for healing led him to receive an MD in Ayurveda from Dayanand Ayurvedic College in Jalandhar, India in 1980, and then in 1986, he came to the West to share Ayurveda as part of a cultural exchange program. In 1988, he graduated from Bastyr University with a degree in Naturopathic Medicine.
