Abstract

The drug of choice for the treatment of COVID-19 remains an unsolved issue. Major scientific bodies are engaging in the discovery of preventive solutions and curative medicines for COVID-19.  Ayurveda is the oldest and most popular system of medicine currently practiced in India. There is a need for scientific studies on Ayurveda and its premises to find out the potential and the possibilities the system of medicine might carry for COVID-19 care. In regards to the aforementioned suggestion the implementation of large scale molecular and public health studies on the application of Ayurveda for the management of COVID-19 seems to be a reasonable path forward. As such the Ministry of AYUSH’s self-care advice can be disseminated to other parts of the globe. This article discusses the necessity and research oriented possibilities on utilization of Ayurvedic medicine for COVID-19 management in India.
