Akil Taher, MD

About the Author

Akil Taher, MD, is a practicing physician in Gadsden, Alabama. 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 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). Over the last decade, he has overcome acute and chronic medical ailments by transforming his mind, body, and spirit through the adoption of a 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, and it chronicles his exploits since his heart surgery. Dr. Taher was raised in Mumbai, India, and trained in family medicine at the Flower Hospital in Sylvania, Ohio. He is happily married and has two children and an adorable grandson.
