"I found Veena when I was looking for a holistic approach to my health and lifestyle. The consultation with individual attention and focus has been wonderful. I have transitioned from pharmaceuticals to herbal and dietary approaches to manage my high cholesterol and calcium deficiencies.

Digestive issues that have plagued me my entire life have disappeared. I am a dedicated user of the oils to ease arthritis pain.

I was so pleased with my results that I recommended Saumya Ayurveda to my daughters and my mother. My mother enjoys the tea, and the oil is working so well for the arthritis in her hands and shoulders that she has been able to stop using harsh pain medications. Ayurveda is helping me to take care of myself and I can enjoy each day.”
