My Story
Dr. Suman Chaudhuri

Dr. Suman is a healer, educator, and guide who has helped countless people achieve greater health and happiness. He is the owner of Karuna Center for Natural Healthcare where he blends time-tested traditional healing methods from around the world with modern scientific clinical approaches into a truly holistic and integrative healing system. His understanding of healing and healthcare is based on ancient wisdom, formal training, personal study, insight, and professional practice. Dr. Suman’s passion is helping people realize their highest potential and evolving to be the best they can be.


Dr. Suman was born in India but has lived in America since the age of two. He was able to maintain a strong connection to his ancient heritage which gave him the platform and direction to delve into deeper matters of the body, mind, and soul. This path opened his mind to the unseen and propelled him to seek the hidden mysteries and mechanics of life. Upon learning meditation and eastern philosophy in college, he redirected his desire for a medical career into natural healthcare. His formal training began with a Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri, where he learned about the physical body, the importance of the spine, and the power of spinal adjustments to health and the healing process. He graduated in 1999 and then continued his studies in naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona until 2003 during which he gained knowledge of herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, and traditional Chinese medicine. At that time, he decided to move to Tennessee to be near his family and opened Karuna Center in 2005.


Along the way, Dr. Suman has spent considerable time studying other healing and spiritual traditions. One of his passions is learning about the energetic systems of the body, and so he became a Reiki Master in 1998 and subsequently learned other directed energy techniques which he now integrates with his chiropractic bodywork. He has also studied psychology, hypnotherapy, shamanic healing, and other mind-body techniques which have furthered his understanding of the power of the mind and emotions. In addition, the philosophy and practice of Ayurveda and Buddhist mindfulness are deeply integrated into his healing approach as he has strived to understand the deepest aspects of the whole person which includes the spiritual.


Dr. Suman has been able to take his broad range of knowledge and experience and turn it into a thriving practice based on helping people attune to the power of nature and transform their relationship to their body and mind. He believes human potential is truly unlimited if we have the right awareness, tools, and guidance. True health is not about how you look, what you can do, or not having symptoms…it’s about how much vitality and how little tension you hold in your body and mind as well as how gracefully and effectively you handle the stresses of your life.
