The growing demand for Ayurvedic alternatives for modern ailments and incurable diseases is increasingly changin healthcare values and preferences. The world has never seen so many vendors and exporters of Ayurvedic medicines as today.
Many even sell their products online. Other systems of medicine have also begun to combine Ayurvedic remedies with conventional medicine after successful clinical trials proved their value beyond doubt.
The five generations of the Joshi family trace their descent via a continuous Ayurvedic genealogy. The present incumbent of the rich tradition, Shri Satish Kumar Joshi, [son of Shri Hari Shankar Sharma (Joshi), ex-Principal of Pharmacy College, Rajpipla] obtained his MD in Ayurveda in 1979 and decided to establish a manufacturing facility for compounding medicine named after the great ancient physician.
Nagarjun.Nagarjun Pharmaceuticals (P) Ltd. continues the great tradition of Ayurveda. The Company gives impetus to and strengthens the prospects of the present scenario by offering its own resources from a pure and pristine tradition.
Nagarjun, the great Rishi and spiritual divine, passed down his heritage—as old as civilization—through disciples, thus preserving almost every formula based on his treasures. His renown as the progenitor of the ancient Indian science of Ras Shastra enshrines his personality in medical texts and among Raj Vaidyas as the “physician of the gods.”
