His business accomplishments, including the successful oral care brand, Dr. Fresh, earned him 2011's Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and an active position with the Young Presidents Organization (YPO). However, 16-hour workdays filled with stress, poor eating habits and lack of exercise took a dire toll on his life and his health. After an emergency trip to the hospital with chest pains during what turned out to be a severe anxiety attack, he rediscovered the yoga he loved as a child in India. His transformation included a 40-pound weight loss, which helped significantly lower his cholesterol and blood pressure. His commitment to yoga, yogic breathing, meditation and an Ayurvedic diet has helped him combat a host of prior health issues, such as back pain, insomnia, depression and sleep apnea - virtually without medications.
