A med-tech start-up in Ayurveda is changing this and gaining popularity in India
Ayurveda and its benefits, till now, have been restricted to the solutions which are available Over the Counter (OTC). These are largely driven by the products of big Ayurvedic Medicine companies which use heavy promotions for their products to create awareness & pull. However, in the absence of detailed consultations, patients are not being diagnosed properly and hence are bereft of the true benefits of this ancient medical science.
Dr. Rajesh Singh, a veteran Ayurveda practitioner for more than 50 years, emphasize on the effectiveness of Ayurveda – “Contrary to the popular belief, Ayurveda is very effective in treating chronic as well as life threatening diseases. However, this is possible only under the guidance of the right doctor. The patient needs to timely consult the right doctor and complete the treatment. Apart from medication, counselling for Aahar, Vihaar and Aachar is also included as a part of consultation. Yoga and Panchakarma work as catalyst to expedite recovery. Just taking medicine is not enough for complete treatment.”
We have spoken to other Ayurveda experts who believe that the main problem in Ayurveda adoption is Awareness & Knowledge. ‘People are not aware of the right doctor. Several quacks have tarnished this great science’ is the regular qualm.
A new med-tech start-up is trying to change this. SUSHAIN, sushainclinic.com, has been started to act as a one stop all solution platform for Ayurvedic treatments. It provides access to 300+ certified Ayurvedic specialists of different ailments. Apart from consultation, the platform facilitates Diet counselling, Yoga training and Panchkarma.
