About Dr Deepika Rodrigo

Dr Deepika Rodrigo spent much of her childhood exploring the wealth of natural remedies found in the rainforests of her native Sri Lanka and inspired her to become an Ayurvedic Physician.

She has been in continuous clinical practice for over two decades in the UK in  well-known natural health clinics in London including the Hale Clinic and the Kailash Centre of Oriental Medicine. Since 2000, she has practiced exclusively from her own well-established London based clinic. Together with her qualified staff of therapists she is able to offer tailor made, in depth advice and a range of specialised Ayurvedic therapies to treat a wide range of disorders.

She is highly sought after for her specialist work in treating fertility issues and women’s disorders. Over the course of her practice she has enabled hundreds of women to realise their dream of having children and it is the part of her work closest to her heart.

She is a specialist in skin disorders with long experience in treating skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne and has treated hundreds of children and infants with chronic skin disorders.

For the last 15 years, as director of the Ayurveda Institute UK and as a former senior lecturer at the Westminister University (now Middlesex University), Dr Deepika Rodrigo is widely recognised as a principal driving force behind the growing awareness of Ayurveda in the UK and has trained many of today’s leading Ayurvedic specialists and health care professionals.

Ayurveda is a vast body of ancient wisdom, developed over 5,000 years. Dr Deepika believes that her three decades of learning are but a drop in the ocean of this dynamic and ever evolving science of life. The very essence of Ayurveda is compassion and in helping to alleviate suffering in others she feels she is fulfilling her life’s purpose.
