Born in northern Sri-Lanka, Dr. Radha Gopalan started his medical education at North Colombo Medical College in 1985.
When civil unrest put his studies on hold, he seized the opportunity to become an acupuncturist at the International
University for Complementary Medicines in Colombo, Sri-Lanka. In 1990, and already well versed in Eastern and Western
philosophies of medicine, Dr. Gopalan transferred to St. Georges University to complete his medical degree.
By 1993, Dr. Gopalan’s interest in eastern philosophy took him to London, where he worked as an acupuncturist with
the acclaimed Dr. Ravi Ponniah. Again, East met West as he observed the integration of Acupuncture, Homeopathy,
Osteopathy and herbs in the treatment of patients.
Dr. Gopalan returned to the United States for his post-graduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology in New Jersey. He
received additional fellowship training in Cardiac Electrophysiology, as well as another fellowship in Heart Transplant at Hahnemann University Hospital in
Philadelphia. He is also an acupuncturist and certified yoga instructor and is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Heart Transplant and Medical

Most people would agree that we aren’t taught much about ‘wellness.’ And while there
seems to be an increased awareness related to ‘fitness’, more often than not we only think
about ‘health’ or doctors when we’re sick. What’s left in the middle of those two extremes is
a life-long struggle to stay healthy and productive in a world of mixed medical messages.
For the first time, Dr. Radha Gopalan, gifted heart transplant Cardiologist, Acupuncturist and
Yoga Teacher, clears up the confusion around health, wellness, and illness. And he does it in a
way that will change the way you think about yourself—and medicine—forever.
Dr. Gopalan merges his education and experience in both Eastern and Western medicine to
look at health and wellness from a unique and powerful perspective and delivers not only
concepts and philosophies that can change the way you think about health and wellness,
but assesses the most common medical conditions that impact our world — from cancer and
diabetes to heart disease, obesity, and chronic illnesses.
IN SECONDOPINION, DR. GOPALAN WILL EXPLAIN:
• how Eastern and Western medicine can work together for optimum health and wellness
• how you can influence the outcome of your health—and disease
• how the five levels of the H-I Triangle shape your personality, reactions, health, and
• how insurance and finances are affecting your healthcare
• why some people who eat healthy, exercise, and lead a healthy lifestyle still have a heart
• how being healthy has more to do with who you must be than what you must do
