WHO IS DR. N D VAIDYA?
Dr. Natoobhai D. Vaidya, G.F.A.M (Bom), was one of India’s most renowned Ayurvedic doctors. Like any other doctor, he ran his practice through a very successful clinic in Mumbai. During his prime, he had a practice of approximately 300 patients per day, as well as a postal practice of more than 9000 patients across India and 3000 patients across the UK and Germany. At that time (and even until the end of his practising days) he was one of the only doctors who prescribed his own formulations manufactured in his own facility. Today, he has left behind a rich legacy and 100+ FDA approved formulations for various kinds of Ayurvedic medicines. Dr. Vaidya’s: New Age Ayurved is carrying his legacy forward to the modern, 21st century consumer.
WHAT IS AYURVED?
Much before allopathy and homeopathy came an ancient Indian science called Ayurved that relied entirely on nature’s bounty for its cures. Ayurved is the traditional, time-tested science of healing with herbs, fruits and minerals that are plentifully available in nature . It is one of the oldest scientific medical systems in the world, with a long record of clinical expertise of famous Ayurvedic sages like Dhanvantri, Sushruta and Charaka, whose legacy was further carried on by Vaids or Ayurvedic doctors. The word “Ayu” denotes all aspects of life from birth to death. The word “Veda” means knowledge or learning. Hence Ayurved indicates a science by which life, in its totality, is deeply understood. At Dr. Vaidya’s, we rely on 150 years of painstaking research done by the Vaidya family that has given us our proprietary formulations.
HOW IS AYURVED DIFFERENT FROM ALLOPATHIC/MODERN MEDICINES?
Modern medicine treats the symptoms in the short term, rather than addressing the root cause of a patient’s suffering. Ayurved on the other hand, makes its special contributions by addressing the uniqueness of each patient and by helping each body to heal from the root cause of the ailment. Thus, Ayurved looks at a longer term solution to patient suffering in comparison with modern medicine.
WHAT IS DR.VAIDYA’S?
Dr. Vaidya’s is a new age Ayurvedic products business founded by a family with 150 years of Ayurvedic heritage. Over the last 150 years, family members have passed down formulations from generation to generation and treated thousands of patients in the process. Today, the company owns 96 FDA approved formulations for Ayurvedic proprietary medicines, all manufactured in-house.
WHAT IS NEW AGE AYURVED?
At Dr. Vaidya’s we are looking to revolutionize the way Ayurvedic products are marketed. We aim to create new age products that make Ayurved cool, sexy, fun and aspirational for the modern consumer in a form that is appealing and convenient. We aim to give this traditional science a modern twist.
Yoga is an ancient Indian art form that was taken by the West, packaged in a modern form and now, (with yoga mats and yoga apparel) it is a USD 36b industry. We believe that Ayurved is at this inflection point and our desire is to help grow this science globally through a new age approach.
WHY IS AYURVED UNIQUE AS COMPARED TO OTHER SYSTEMS OF MEDICINE?
It is one of the oldest scientific medical systems in the world, with a long record of clinical experience from Ayurvedic sages and scriptures. Other than being a form of medicine, Ayurved is also a way of life that teaches us how to maintain healthy human systems and longevity. Ayurved treats man as a “whole” – which is a combination of body, mind and soul. Therefore it is a truly holistic and integrative medical system.
WHAT KIND OF AILMENTS DOES DR. VAIDYA’S CATER TO?
Ayurved has proven very effective for a vast majority of diseases which affect the body, including skin diseases, ailments of the bones and joints (e.g. Arthritis etc.), diabetes and other hormone related diseases, nervous system disorders like paralysis, epilepsy etc. It has become popular in treatment of cases related to decreased vitality. It is also helpful in ailments that are recurring and persistent, and have no definitive treatment in other systems of medicines.
As Dr. Natoobhai Vaidya believed in 360 degree healing, we at Dr. Vaidya’s are fortunate to have formulations that treat a multitude of ailments. In our stable we have Ayurvedic medicines for arthritis, diabetes, asthma, hypertension, cholesterol, indigestion, obesity, kidney problems, liver protection, immunity, hair oil, shampoo tranquilizer, pain balm, male rejuvenation, allergies, piles etc.
WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF AYURVEDIC MEDICINES OR FORMULATIONS?
Ayurved derives its medicinal components from nature’s bounty. All Dr. Vaidya’s Ayurvedic formulations are natural, safe and have no side effects.
HOW ARE AYURVEDIC MEDICINES PREPARED?
At Dr. Vaidya’s we have our own production facility where we prepare all formulations. All our formulations are FDA approved and our facility is ISO 9001:2015 & GMP certified. Thus, we adhere by the highest quality standards.
DO AYURVEDIC MEDICINES HAVE ANY SIDE–EFFECTS?
All Ayurvedic medicines are natural and safe with no side effects. They can be used for children too. Certain Ayurvedic medicines do require a physician’s advice.
ARE AYURVEDIC MEDICINES USED FOR CHRONIC AILMENTS ONLY?
A large number of people look towards allopathy for a cure to an ailment. When the results are negative, they turn to Ayurved. By this time the disease becomes chronic. Therefore there is a misconception that Ayurvedic drugs cannot be used for minor ailments like cold, cough, fever, acidity, loose motions and other aches and pains. At Dr. Vaidya’s we have formulations that do treat such minor, non-chronic ailments as well.
