Dr. Khalsa Tells His Wellness Story
I’m a teenager growing up Baltimore. It’s my senior year in high school – 1971. I begin my wellness journey with vegetarian cooking, long distance running, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. I get into great shape.
In 1971, inspired by Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Spiritual Teacher, I become a dedicated Yoga practitioner and Sikh and have been ever since. My philosophy in life is be happy, be kind, work hard and serve others.
Music has always been a big part of my life. My dad, Leonard Freedman, was a clarinet and tenor sax man from way back. He was a Second Lieutenant and Judge Advocate in the US Army stationed in Korea just after WWII. He formed a 15-piece big band jazz ensemble there to serve the troops, which included members of Count Basie’s Orchestra. My mom, Mindelle sang Frank Sinatra songs to me when I was a baby! My older sister Donna introduced me to a lot of great pop, rock, folk and R&B music as we grew up. At age 11, I learn to sing and play my favorite tunes on the guitar. I’ve been playing ever since!
In 1972 I start teaching Kundalini Yoga and Meditation classes. I put the mantras and chants to music, play them on the guitar and sing them with my class. The students love it because it makes meditating fun! Those were the early beginnings of Meditation Recharge, which is a simple, transforming wellness practice anyone can do to feel great.
In 1973 in college I strain my neck, go to the chiropractor, get adjusted and get well. I discover that chiropractic and yoga have a lot in common so I decide to attend Chiropractic College.
In 1976, I complete my pre-chiropractic studies at the University of Maryland and graduate the full-time Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU), four years later.
Doctor of Chiropractic Degree
I receive my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in April, 1980. My wife, Gurumata Kaur and I drive cross-country from LA to Herndon. I’m licensed in 1981 by the Virginia Board of Medicine and open my practice in Herndon and then Reston.
DABCI Diplomate Certification
In 1987 two great things happen! First and foremost, our beautiful son, Shabd Singh is born. Second, I enroll in Texas Chiropractic College’s post-doctoral 3-year certification course leading to Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists or DABCI. This program includes medical diagnosis and advanced, natural therapeutics. It focuses on specialized testing such as EKG and blood laboratory studies. It treats with herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, dietetics, exercise and vitamin and mineral supplementation.
In the mid-90’s I also enroll in a post-doctoral acupuncture program. After three years in 2000, I become qualified to practice acupuncture by the VA Board of Medicine.
During my personal time away from practice, I enjoy yoga and meditation, playing the guitar, singing, writing, performing, recording and exploring new music, and I am an avid Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins football fan.
I Would Like to Help You
