In 2017 when I became a mother, I personally started facing some problem and looked around for an wholesome healing practices and products. In 2018 I stumbled upon Nabhi Chikitsa, a for my wellness. I tried it and found it was very convenient and effective.

I consulted my cousin who is a Dr in Ayurveda. Later I realised that there is no one who is using this healing method, business side of me saw this as an opportunity and took a leap of faith to Launch Nabhi Sutra in 2019.
