Dr. Vikram Chauhan (MD-Ayurveda), CEO & Founder of Planet Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd tells us how where there is health there is no room for any disease.
Tell us about you, your career, and how you founded Planet Ayurveda.
Vikram Chauhan: Basically, I belong to a Jeweller’s Family, but for my interest in Nature and Healing, I chose Ayurveda for my Higher Studies and opted to make my career only in this field. Today, the world has many successful and rich people, but I always wanted to be someone who can spread Happiness and Health to People without harming any living being. In my search for something that can help me in this, the Almighty gave me the indication to choose Ayurveda, a science given by God himself that only knows and aims to Heal Every Living Being physically, emotionally, and mentally as well as spiritually. I graduated from BAMS, and after that, I did MD in Ayurveda – Dravyaguna (Pharmacology and Pharmacognosy of Medicinal Herbs) and Three Years Diploma in Yoga and Naturopathy. While pursuing my higher studies, I got a Spark to make this Science get World Fame in the most Natural Way as it is conveyed to us by Our Ancestors, not by Modifying it as per our own Benefits. So, I proceeded with the idea of starting my own firm, not only with the purpose of Healing People but also to letting them Explore this Wonderful Science for Healthy Living. I always believe that Ayurveda is God’s Manual for Health, with which I have also written my Book “Ayurveda-God’s Manual for Health by Dr. Vikram Chauhan”. Thus, with all these thoughts and beliefs, Planet Ayurveda Pvt. Ltd. is founded by Me during my MD, and now it is one of the most Leading Ayurvedic Brands worldwide.
Do you have small habits that made a meaningful impact on your life and business?
Vikram Chauhan: I am an Early Riser. That is the first rule of Ayurveda, to wake up in Brahma Muhurata and start my day with Yoga. I implement the three most Basic Principles of Ayurveda in my life: Ahara (Healthy Diet), Nidra (Proper Sleep), and Brahmacharya. With the help of these, I stay healthy, happy, and positive, which consequently affects my life and business in a positive and well manner, making it prosper daily. I prefer to do all my tasks independently, from minor to major, from daily life to business handling.

Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Vikram Chauhan: I am my own competitor. I never consider any of the other Brands as my Competitors as everyone is doing their work to Explore the things in their own ways, with their personal beliefs and ethics. I just consider whoever is promoting Ayurveda or other Medical Sciences with the primary purpose of Serving Healing to the Society as my colleagues. I just always want to be a little better on every new day than I am on the previous day.
Tell us a customer success story of yours.
Vikram Chauhan: As we are in the field of Medical Services, Every Healed patient is my Customer Success Story that I always try to share with all the people worldwide through my YouTube channel and other Social Platforms as well. It’s almost 2 complete decades since I actually started practicing as an Ayurvedic Doctor. I have had numerous success stories in all these years, so it is not easy to explain to anyone.

If Health is Lost, Everything is Lost.”
So, Never Lose Your Health at any Cost, and Live a Healthy and Sustainable Life with Ayurveda.
