His practice is based in these ancient lineages, rooted in Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese texts, which teach universal wisdom that integrates with contemporary science and the issues of the present day.

His clinical practice incorporates diagnostics, herbal medicine, acupuncture and other therapies from all three traditions. Eric currently is based in Nepal.

Eric studies Āyurveda in India with  senior Vaidyas from Pune and Kerala holding clinical practice lineages firmly rooted in the classical scriptures and oral traditions.
