Founder of Aharveda
Harish Shetty is the founder of ‘Aharveda’, an extraordinary food philosophy that is transforming lives. It all began with a health scare many years ago. He recovered completely but the experience awoke within him empathy towards those with chronic health issues and the desire to help. He immersed himself in the study of ancient Indian recipes for wellness. Already a successful hotelier, he worked hard to develop recipes that would combat illness while being appealing to the palate. His passion for helping people heal led to the world’s first Aharveda restaurant in Mumbai and a convenient Aharveda Tiffin service for the old, sick and the busy.
He is supported in his wellness endeavor by a committed team of highly qualified doctors and nutritionists. He conducts regular Aharveda seminars which are empowering and life-altering. He is well-known for his unique MBA (Mind, Body and Aatma) program which offers holistic health solutions to ailments, including obesity, cancer and diabetes.
