Hans-Joachim Rudolph was born in 1950. He was interested in contemplative and scientific thinking from an early age. He was educated in Würzburg, Göttingen, Berlin and Munich studying the basics of philosophy, mathematics, physics and the history of arts before joining medical college.
He earned his Medical Doctorate at the Institute for Clinical Chemistry, Academic Hospital München-Schwabing in 1980. From 1980 to 1988 he was a resident in internal medicine at Berlin and Bad Pyrmont. Since 1988 he practiced medicine as an internist and specialist in rheumatology. Thereafter he served as an assistant medical director, and from 1992 to 1997 as a Commissioner for Indian Medicine and member of the Council for Natural Medicine at the Berlin Chamber of Physicians.
During and after his years as a medical resident he has published many articles on Clinical Chemistry, Chronomedicine, Naturopathy and Ayurveda. With the establishment of his rheumatology practice his academic pursuits slowed down. But after 2001, he has returned to research and produced pioneering work on the subject of microvita.
He was initiated to yogic practices in 1972. He has been deeply inspired by the philosophy of Shri Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (Shrii Shrii Anandamurti).
He started touring India in 1983; from 1993 to 1995 he participated in the foreigners training programme at the Gujarat Ayurved University, and in 2007 he established the Microvita Research e.V. in collaboration with the Science Centre at Ananda Nagar/India.
