More about Naturefit
Naturefit has 3 primary pillars that are healing, shop and connect.
In the healing sector, the patient connects to a nearby practitioner whose first mode of treatment would be natural and without medication. Ayurveda, yoga and homoeopathy are the primary objectives that NatureFit offers. There is everything from the patient to the doctor for medicines, consultation, prescriptions and reminders. Also, there is everything from doctors to the patient, so the doctors can manage everything on software like appointments and prescriptions.
The second sector is the shop sector in which there are 10,000+ organic natural products under one roof and a solid collection of 150+ brands for user’s consumption to choose from.
The third sector is connected, wherein Naturefit has created a community for people who are into a natural lifestyle. To know and share more about moving towards healthy living.
The main focus is to make people move towards preventive lifestyles and health and to introduce the Indian system of medicine and the natural way of healing along with a modern wrapping around it.
Naturefit's challenges with herbal products
Avneet Bhatia states “It's our onus and responsibility to ensure that the practitioners, doctors, brands and products that are onboarding on our platform are the best quality-wise. We formulated our criteria of the brands and products to be onboarded. We have very strict criteria as we look at a lot of specifications like GMP, AYUSH and ORGANIC CERTIFICATION before we onboard any brand. 100% herbal or 100% natural items are very difficult to find.”
USP of Naturefit

Additionally, there are Pan India patients who are trying to find qualified ayurvedic doctors. Naturefit claims to provide End-to-end service effectively.
