In this candid conversational interview, Dr. Akil Taher will share his story of adversity and the challenges he faced as a heart disease survivor. Having undergone open heart surgery and determined to make life count, Dr. Akil found the best version of himself, changed the way he practices medicine, and now shares his message of living a heart healthy lifestyle with the world. He has spoken on stages, on podcasts, in trainings before his peers and professionals to introduce a message of change that has helped countless thousands and saved lives. Akil Taher, MD is a practicing physician in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He was raised in Mumbai, India, trained in Family Medicine at the Flower Hospital in Sylvania, Ohio. Dr Taher is an eternal optimist, explorer, and adventurer, who in 2010, at the age of sixty-one, dramatically altered the conventional script adopted by most bypass surgery patients by undertaking a mountaineering trek/ yatra to Mount Kailash in Tibet. This was a year after his open heart surgery. In October 2011, he ran his first full marathon, the Chicago Marathon; and in September 2012, he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. The highest free standing mountain in the world. Dr. Taher then expanded the canvas of his age-defying adventures by pursuing physically challenging activities on land, sea, and air, including a century bike ride (a 100-mile cycling event), triathlon, white water rafting, hang gliding, and skydiving and bungee jumping. Over the last decade, he has overcome acute and chronic medical ailments by transforming his mind, body, and spirit through the adoption of a whole food plant-based diet, practice of yoga and meditation, regular exercise, and developing a positive and purpose-driven mindset. Dr. Taher is also a speaker focused on spreading the message of a heart-healthy lifestyle. Open Heart is his first book, now available on Amazon and Audible, and it chronicles his exploits since his heart surgery. He is happily married and has two children and an adorable grandson.
