Dr. Nishant Rao


PhotoDr. Nishant Rao was born in Kenya and grew up in England, France and the United States. He received his naturopathic doctorate degree from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and received his B.S. from Bastyr University in herbal sciences. He also holds a degree in therapeutic bodywork from The Cortiva Institute. He is a contributing editor to iCaduceus, a software-based diagnostic and treatment support system for clinicians.

His passion to create sustainable models of health 2.0 and online wellness based communities inspired the concept behind WellWire which he co-founded and operates.

While his practice focuses on the treatment of chronic pain and physical medicine he places a strong emphasis on gastrointestinal health, chronic disease, disease prevention and general wellness.  Dr. Rao currently practices at the LTP Medical Center one hour south of Los Angeles in sunny Laguna Beach, California. He is an active member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the California Naturopathic Doctors Association.

Dr. Rao spent the last year practicing, photographing and eating adventurously in South East Asia, the Middle East and the Maldives working for Six Senses Resorts & Spas. He is currently based in Los Angeles with his wife, Dr. Arin Rao.
