Meet Apurve: “The Visionary Behind Biogetica”
Jai, My name is Apurve (pronounced A-poorv). In Sanskrit, my name means ‘unique or of a potency never seen before.’ Also, notice I’d rather say “Jai” than “Hi,” as Hi sounds like a call of pain and Jai is a call of victory! You might say the mission stems from this stance of victory and strength—I was inspired to form Biogetica as a collective of doctors and healers dedicated to the victory of mankind over their challenges, ailments, and suffering and into health, well-being, and joyous living.
Speaking of joy, I live with my wife Lekha and our dog Tenzin between Bombay and Los Angeles, California.
This picture was taken as part of an Elle magazine editorial. Yes, those pants are camouflage, and as you might tell from above, I am an instrument of healing. Still, I also see myself as a soldier of sorts, one who hopes to win the battle of returning people to respect and use nature’s medicines, the battle against mass antibiotic resistance, and other individual and communal threats we face.
This soldier believes that only nature can heal our natural bodies and will march with you every step of the way to health and freedom. Tenzin, too, is a brave-hearted lion that seldom backs down when bullied by other larger dogs. (He comes from a line of rare Tibetan Spaniel dogs bred to be companions to monks and is very serene otherwise!)
My journey into Ayurveda, holistic medicine, and beyond begins early. I was interested in spirituality from a very young age and was initiated into the practice of meditation when I was 6 years old.
As a child, I had various health problems related to the pollution in Mumbai, which disturbed my constitution. Allopathic doctors gave me antibiotics and other drugs, but it was mild-mannered. Homeopathic and Ayurvedic doctors restored my health and freedom, enabling me to excel in sports like polo and boxing. This healing and spiritual wellness journey taught me about the magic of nature’s medicines and inspired me to take up the challenge of bringing them to the world. Every health problem I had, or my friends or family had, eventually became another learning point that taught me more and more about how to access our energy field, balance it with nature’s products, and direct it toward ease and wellness. It was in moments of extreme pain that I learned that I was not the body, nor the energy field, mind, or emotions, but rather the witness that sees all of these aspects of my being.
I went to study at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and then worked in consulting and telecom businesses in New York City. This work, although lucrative, was a deviation from my true path as a healer and led me to a life of many health and personal problems.
It was at the age of 29, when someone very close to me passed away, that I realized that I must stop chasing these corporate dreams and truly follow my healer’s heart. I quit my work and went on to study with numerous enlightened masters and healers, including John of God, Patrick, and Dr. Jorge Carvajal. It was under Dr. Carvajal’s guidance that I truly began to understand what fully integrated healing, or holographic healing, is. Spirit descends, matter ascends, and you = MC^2. The matter, energy, and light that we are must all be restored to balance simultaneously. Dr. Carvajal is the only medical doctor I know who truly understood how the soul of light and sound coalesces through an alchemy of 5 elements to give this body a form. He is the only doctor I have ever met who can invoke a chemical in our bodies by tuning into the vibration it comes from. This is where my career in quantum healing began. This is where I learned that healing happens once we get ourselves out of the way and dissolve in our consciousness. This is where Biogetica was formed to deliver this offering of an integrated healing approach to the world.
Healing and wellness are my primary passions, and I am lucky that now it is also our work. My other passions include horses and music, and I am grateful that I get to dabble in both!
This picture above was taken at the Will Roger Polo Field in Los Angeles.
Yes, I did once ride a horse in a race where my friends who bet for me to place won 10 to 1 odds, as the Mumbai racing fraternity had never seen a 180-pound jockey before. The horse is called Courageous, and he is retired on a beautiful farm now, where he is fed many Biogetica supplements. All our pets are happy Biogetica customers.

Inspiration and success, as I experience them, come from a place way beyond the ego and personality. We are most creative when we allow ourselves to be instruments of the divine. It is the divine force of nature that allows us to align our actions, emotions, thoughts, and energies toward the union that every human is here to seek. To me, religion is simply reconnecting with the force that keeps us alive. The destination remains the same regardless of the path one follows.
At Biogetica, we maintain a stance of humility toward Mother Nature. We seldom take credit for our work in nature and have patented only one of our hundred-plus formulas, knowing that the inspiration for them, like our breath, comes from a place far beyond us!
To end, let me say that we are one, and I welcome you to our community of healers and healed. It is our work to love and nurture you back to health. This, without a doubt, is why both Biogetica and I are here. We thank you for the opportunity to be with you every step of the way, from medication to meditation. Join us so we can together march towards the light of health and freedom in this life!
We offer our products and services to all and never turn away from helping others, as we truly believe in following the truth of our hearts.
We are truly passionate about the quality control of our products, most of which are now made in a very controlled environment in the north of Spain. The plants are grown following moon cycles and fed energized, structured water. The entire facility runs on wind electricity, and we do our best to keep it free from all electromagnetic radiation.
Our work has now touched several of the most famous people on the planet. Some of them are pictured below. We will treat you like a superstar, too.

Apurve During his Healing and Wellness Journey
My family and I were blessed with a private audience with the Dalai Lama at his residence in the Himalayas recently.
We are humbled by his beauty and grace and wanted to share the experience with you all, as there is so much one can learn from this great man regardless of one’s faith. One look into his still, loving eyes is enough to melt any heart. As a little boy, he walked across the Himalayas to save his life and therefore lost most of his childhood to war. Yet he is still mischievous, like a little boy. He never had kids but loves everyone like his children. His greatest ally is kindness. When you meet him, he doesn’t give any sermons or advice; he simply appreciates and loves you until you cannot help but love him back. Kindness to all, including the ones that attacked his country, is a sign of his infinite courage, and there is so much one can learn from this kindness and compassion that he says is his religion.
This meeting reinstated what I had known. Our most important calling on this planet is to love and uplift others. Nothing can satisfy us like a life lived in service and devotion to living beings. I am blessed to have aligned my life to this purpose and want to tell you that we are here for you, no matter what!
