Ayurveda is an indigenous ancient system of health care prevalent in India. It is believed to be 5000 years old, dating back to 3000BC. Reference to Ayurveda can be found in all four Vedas. Ayurveda is considered the world’s oldest medical systems.
From those ancient days, Ayurveda has been practiced in India as wholistic approach for balancing body, nature and mind. It is fundamental that internal and external balance is achieved through wholistic approach for vital health. The wholistic management of health problems in Ayurveda is comprised of a three fold scientific approach toward healing through diet, lifestyle and treatment.
India has given many natural Ayurvedic products which are time tested and well documented in terms of their utility and effectiveness. Even western societies are now looking towards India for natural remedies to be wholistic and free from side-effects.
Over centuries Ayurveda has become a part of daily life in India by incorporating these Ayurvedic Natural ingredients into daily life as home remedies. Best examples for these are Neem (Azadirachta indica), Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and Tulasi (Ocimum sanctum). No doubt at ASTREL we are inspired by Mother Nature………our approach is to develop natural creams and shampoo for redness, scaling and flaking of the skin and scalp.….our efforts culminated into development of D-Psoria Shampoo and D-Psoria Cream based on wholistic approach advocated by ancient systems of Ayurveda and on basic principle that human body has self-healing mechanism.
