Rediscovering Ayurveda with Atreya innovations – My journey
Evolution is a phase in which gradual, consistent processes of change and development occur.
The same can be said about me. I have evolved gradually, carrying only the best with me and shedding off the things which hamper my growth.
In this journey I have been fortunate to be associated with Atreya Innovations. Atreya Innovations has come up with products having a confluence of three sciences namely- Ayurveda, Technology and Nutrition science.
I, Vaidya Shillpa Jamdarkhana, have been part of Atreya Innovations for the past 2 years. Prior to this I had worked with Atreya for a brief period on contractual basis in 2018.
I have been a part of the healthcare industry in various fields before 2018. I have worked in the StemCells industry for 2 years. After that I started working in a renowned wellness organization based on Ayurveda as a center manager. There I was trained as a Center doctor and a Center Manager as well. Though my main role was that of the manager, I gained good knowledge of wellness, patient interaction and Ayurveda herbs that could be used in the lifestyle management of patients. I also was introduced to nutrition science in this organization. I had to part with this organization due to personal reasons and I was unable to work for six months due to it.
In 2018 when things were better at my personal end, I reached out to my friends for any opportunities. At that time, I was introduced to Atreya Innovations in January 2018. I contacted Vaidya Tejaswini Bhale ma’am, and my interview was arranged. During the interview I had least expectations but my enthusiasm to learn was the foremost. I honestly told Vaidya Tejaswini and Aniruddha sir that I did not have much exposure to clinical practice of Ayurveda. Both of them just wanted to know if I was ready to learn the use of Ayurveda in technology and I was of course ready.
After a few days I had a positive response from Atreya and my work started. I visited the office at Hinjewadi to practice taking Nadi on the Nadi Tarangini device. The office staff helped me with this. After sufficient practice I traveled and visited clinics for data collection. Tejaswini ma’am introduced me to these clinics. I mainly visited clinics treating PCOD, PCOS, Hypertension and Infertility disorders.
There with the patient’s consent I would collect the required data for the research of Nadi Tarangini, the Nadi Pariksha device. That was a time of great learning and new beginnings for me and opened new doors of Ayurveda and technology. I parted with Atreya after a few weeks. Later I worked for cancer patients to benefit them with grants from Tata Cancer Hospital for their treatments. That was another learning phase for me. I facilitated the proper documentation for grants required for prosthodontic surgery of cancer patients. These documents were sent to Tata Cancer Trust and some part of funding was procured. It required counseling of cancer patients, talking to them in their native language, making them understand the process etc.
During this period, I learnt virtual scribing which is a thriving industry in healthcare abroad. During the pandemic I also counseled young students in a very different field not related to healthcare. My counseling skills helped me to successfully accomplish this task.
After the pandemic again I had the opportunity to join Atreya Innovations in April 2021. Atreya had come up with a new product called Turyaa. Turyaa is a patient centric Nadi Pariksha device and has an app named Turyaa wellness. Turyaa is similar to Atreya’s product Nadi Tarangini. I joined as an Ayurveda Wellness Coach.
I counseled the patients through online consultations using the Turyaa app as a telemedicine platform. I advised the patients on diet and lifestyle recommendations. My experience in counseling in the wellness industry helped me immensely.
Now my journey at Atreya Innovations continues with the product Nadi Tarangini. The product has undergone a few changes with a lot of added features and is useful in various healthcare sectors for Nadi Pariksha.
I am proud and humbled to have been able to contribute at Atreya Innovations to its various products and the journey continues to be extremely delightful and knowledgeable.
