The Journey of Arya Vaidhya Sala
The journey started in 1937 (before the Independence of India) by my grandfather, Pandit Jamunadeen Pathak. He had learnt the medicinal uses of various herbs from his mother right from early childhood. He started treating needy persons at a very young age. He was an agriculturist but his selfless devotion to serve society made him to treat hundreds of villagers every day free of cost. He transferred all his knowledge to my father, Vaidya Shyam Krishna Pathak. To make him recognized Vaidya, he admitted him to the state Ayurveda College, Lucknow to pursue his BAMS degree in 1968 and started practicing Ayurveda in his village @ Uttar Pradesh. His better half Smt. Suman Pathak too had supported him throught out her life. In the year 1979 he got central government job as medical officer at New Delhi. After his retirement (in 2004), he established Dr. Pathak clinic at Dwarka, New Delhi. Later the clinc his transformed into DR. PATHAK HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTRE at Dwarka, New Delhi which is now managed by his elder son, Vaidya vanish Pathak, BAMS, MS. Vaidya Shyam Krishna Pathak has four siblings Vaidya Avnish Pathak, Vaidya Pankaj Pathak and Madhu Pathak and Aradhna (The third generation of Vaidyas).

A Memory that's etched deeply in the journey
Tough time when my parents were struggling to give us all comforts but still he was treating patients without charging a single rupee. He was the Real Hero who gave importance to moral values. Even during covid pandemic, he was successfully treating the patients with Ayurveda medicines. He did not close his clinic and used to see the patient almost the whole day and night. At last, he himself got infected with covid and left this world in April, 2021.
I should live up to the dream of my father. He used to say “Serve Ayurveda and serve the society”
