In 1985, Vaidya Naina came to the United States to augment her education in Ayurveda by completing an Advanced Skin Care Program. This enabled her to develop, test, and certify hair and skincare product lines in strict compliance with ancient Ayurvedic guidelines, in addition to conducting clinical trials for prestigious pharmaceutical companies to bring high quality Ayurvedic products to the global market. Mastering this modern skincare education and pairing it with her knowledge of holistic beauty and wellness found at the core of Ayurveda philosophy, Dr. Naina envisioned a merging of the two that manifested as a first-of-its-kind Ayurveda Wellness and Skin Care Center in the heart of Mumbai.
Her specialties lie in understanding and analyzing chakra balancing through pulse reading and Vedic astrology. These gifts of knowledge were received from her gurus and have been cultivated through her relentless hard work and dedication to the field of Ayurveda. As an expert in these areas, Dr. Naina Marballi also formulated an educational system that is founded on the Four Pillars of Ayurvedic Nutrition, based on an individual’s unique constitution:
- Analysis of the Quantum Intelligence present in Nutritive Foods (Customized Diet Chart)
- Yoga / Exercise (Customized Yoga Postures / Asanas)
- Pranayama (Breath Awareness)
- Sleep and Meditation
Her refreshing approach to the ancient mysteries of Ayurveda by healing through the five senses is the hallmark of her instructional style. With her matchless combination of Ayurvedic knowledge and Esthetics education, expressed over 40 years of applied experience and commitment, she has introduced thousands of students and clients alike to the concepts of disease prevention and the maintenance of good health within the body, mind and consciousness.
