With the spread of Covid-19 in the country, people are now focusing on immunity building measures and revisiting Ayurveda for prevention.
A technology-led Ayurveda platform, has enabled people to use the facility of 'teleayurveda' and stay connected with doctors through online consultations. NirogStreet has 50,000 ayurveda doctors listed on the platform.
Ram N. Kumar, Founder, NirogStreet said: "Amid the lockdown we are successfully connecting millions of patients with over 50,000 ayurveda doctors on our platform. People are respecting the lockdown and turning to online consultation for all their health needs. This is the right time for Ayurveda to ride on technology and serve the health needs of people across the country. A significant part of the online consultation for both critical and non-critical ailments is coming from tier II cities. We are also maintaining regular supply of immunity medicines and sanitisers to Ayurveda doctors. Through our doctors network we have recently distributed over 75,000 sanitisers."
In these unprecedented circumstances that people are going through, ï¿½teleayurveda' is a great concept for both ayurvedic doctors and patients to stay connected, he added.
The company claims to have witnessed six times growth in online searches for immunity boosting Ayurveda products, apart from a spike in demand for immunity building medicines and herbal soaps, sanitisers etc.
The platform aims to train and certify over 1,00,000 pure Ayurveda practitioners in the next two years and bring them to the mainstream. It is widening their reach and accessibility through a very user friendly and interactive technology platform.
