The Background

In mid eighties (1986), Dr. Sunil Vasishth, the co-founder of Dr.Vasishth’s AyuRemedies, after obtaining his M.D. & Ph.D. in Ayurveda, from the Faculty of Ayurveda, Institute of Medical Sciences, B.H.U., Varanasi (UP, India), joined the Institute of Post Graduate Teaching & Research in Ayurveda (I.P.G.T. & R.A.), Gujarat Ayurveda University, Jamnagar (Gujarat, India), as a teaching faculty. The choice to enter teaching of ayurveda was driven out of a burning desire to study, understand, try, and teach the principles and practices of ayurveda in the most practical, objective, and result-oriented way.

However, soon Dr.Vasishth realized that the ayurveda medicines available in the market did not bring about desired results, and hence the desired level of healthcare to the suffering people. A close examination of the Ayurveda products available in the market revealed that a great majority of the products were unscientifically formulated, the ingredients used were not in proper form, and the dose of the ingredients was mostly in sub-therapeutic (unable to bring about the desired therapeutic actions).

He soon realized strong need for a scientific, rational, and result-oriented ayurveda clinical approach to address the problem of inefficacy or less than desired efficacy of the ayurveda medicines. For obvious reasons, it was almost impossible to and adopt and pursue such an independent and innovative approach with lot many other people, who have their own set approaches to address this issue.

He, therefore, resigned from the I.P.G.T. & R.A., Jamnagar, and set up his own clinical practice at his own Dr.Vasishth’s Ayurveda Center & Heart Clinic, at Jammu (J&K, India) in 1988, along with his wife, Dr. Brijbala Vasishth, co-founder of Dr.Vasishth’s AyuRemedies, who had obtained M.D. (Ayurveda) degree from the Institute of Post Graduate Teaching & Research in Ayurveda (I.P.G.T. & R.A.), Gujarat Ayurveda University, Jamnagar (Gujarat, India).

Then, for the next nearly two decades, the two of them made every effort to adopt a largely scientific, rational, and result-oriented approach in the following way –

  1. Selection of the most effective drugs – After a meticulous screening of a large number of drugs indicated for the management of a particular disease, those seemingly most effective ones were selected for use among the patients.
  2. Selection of the proper form – A good deal of effort was done to ascertain the most effective form (powder, extract, purified form, calyx, pishti, etc.) of a drug to be used.
  3. Selection of the proper dose – Every effort possible was made to determine the therapeutic dose of the drug used.

As they followed the said clinical approach, soon highly encouraging results started coming in. it was seen that a great majority of the patients under treatment started getting marked improvement and cure in their diseases. And, the trend continued until 2008 their experiences with other doctors. Several options were considered – getting the clinical observations published in reputed scientific journals, publishing books, delivering lectures, and entering manufacturing. After a good deal of thinking, the last option of entering the field of manufacturing and marketing was opted. It was a tough decision to make, as the two of them had no experience of manufacturing and marketing. Yet, it was accepted, because they knew that majority of the doctors shall not find time and other resources to prepare the formulations in an effective way. And, it would thus be most appropriate to offer them the facility to simply prescribe or dispense the medicines, and provide their benefits to their patients.
